Magnesium is an important mineral necessary for many functions in the body, including chemical reactions, muscle contraction, blood clotting, blood pressure regulation, and bone development. The body cannot make magnesium; therefore our needs must be met through the diet. While the majority of our magnesium supply is stored in the bones, some is found in the muscles and body fluids. When blood levels of magnesium are low, the body pulls magnesium from the bones to correct the imbalance.*
Magnesium works in conjunction with calcium and phosphorous to create bone structure. Some magnesium remains on the surface of the bone, acting as storage from which the body can draw from when the dietary supply is insufficient.
Magnesium and calcium also team up to regulate nerve and muscle tone. Magnesium is a chemical blocker for many nerve cells. Insufficient magnesium allows calcium to enter the nerve cells, which can excite the nerve. Sufficient magnesium in the diet keeps muscles relaxed and can ward off symptoms of over stimulated nerves, such as tension, soreness, spasms, cramps and fatigue in the muscles.
Many chemical reactions that occur inside the body require the presence of an enzyme, a specialized protein that helps facilitate chemical reactions. Hundreds of enzymes in the human body need magnesium to carry out their roles in metabolism and energy productions, among numerous other functions.
Magnesium also plays an important role in cardiovascular health, as this mineral helps to integrate the activity of the heart muscle and nerves that induce a heartbeat. Low magnesium may increase the risk of irregular heartbeat and palpitations. Some studies indicate a correlation between increased magnesium and lowered blood pressure. Relaxed muscles that control the blood vessels allow the blood to move more freely.*
