Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body, and it is involved in about 350 different biochemical reactions that help make your cells function properly. So, it goes without saying that every organ in the human body needs magnesium! Without enough of it, kidney function diminishes, nerve and muscle function deteriorate, bones decrease in strength, the heart weakens – and that’s just where it starts. Failing to get enough magnesium can prevent the activation of enzymes responsible for production of energy and regulation of key nutrients in your body such as vitamin D, calcium, copper, potassium, and zinc. If magnesium is so crucial to our development and ability to function as a human being, why then are so many people – knowingly or unknowingly – plagued by magnesium deficiency?
