Magnesium is one of those hard working minerals that simply doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It plays a key role in over 300 different chemical reactions in the body and is involved in everything from DNA synthesis, energy production and metabolism, to muscle strength, nerve function, heart rate regulation and bone building. Magnesium is also an active ingredient in alleviating constipation. That’s one busy mineral.
Unfortunately, magnesium deficiency is extremely common. Medications like antibiotics, corticosteroids, diuretics and contraceptives hinder our ability to absorb magnesium. Refining and processing strips magnesium from our food. Even agricultural soil and water are being depleted of magnesium. It is no wonder that 68% of adults have trouble getting enough from their diets.

About Magnesium & Mag Deficiencies
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and is essential for energy production within our cells. Sixty percent (60%) of the body's magnesium is found in our bones and the remainder is found in our major organs and tissues. Magnesium is critical for maintaining normal muscle and nerve function, keeping the heart rhythm steady, supporting a healthy immune system and keeping our bones strong. The processing and refining of our foods removes much of the food's natural magnesium, hence magnesium deficiency is extremely common in North America.
Symptoms of magnesium deficiency
Anxiety, fatigue, and irritability, loss of appetite, migraines, muscle weakness and spasms, insomnia, mental confusion, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, numbness and tingling. Certain prescription medications can cause a loss of magnesium such as diuretics, antibiotics and oral contraceptives. Seniors in general can greatly improve their health by increasing their magnesium intake.
