MAGNESIUM SUPPLEMENTS IN-DEPTH

Magnesium is one of the most common elemental minerals in the human body which plays important roles in the structure and the function of the human body. The adult human body contains about 25 grams of magnesium, More than 60% of it found in the skeleton, about 25% is found in muscle, 6% to 7% is found in other cells, and less than 1% is found outside of cells. Magnesium is a critical structural element in bone, cell membranes, and chromosomes, and more than 350 enzymes are known to depend on magnesium. It is involved in many processes in the body including nerve signaling, and normal muscle contraction. Magnesium plays an essential in protein synthesis and cellular metabolism, thus the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats to produce energy requires magnesium-dependent enzymes. Magnesium is vital for sustaining the normal heart beat and is used by doctors to treat irregularity heart rhythm.

Health experts believe that more than 80% of adults are deficient, placing them at extreme risk of cardiovascular diseases osteoporosis and of developing diabetes, and psychiatric disorders. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include anxiety, fatigue, migraine attacks, muscle weakness and spasm, loss of appetite, vomiting, nausea, insomnia, abnormal heart rhythms, pain in neck and back.

 

IMPROVES HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

Studies have shown that diets rich in magnesium and calcium do seem to have some protective effect and that people who follow diets low in magnesium and/or calcium seem to develop high blood pressure at a higher rate. A prospective cohort study found that the risk of developing hypertension in both men and women decreased as serum magnesium levels increased. Other prospective studies found that increased serum magnesium levels is associated with decreased risk of CHS (coronary heart disease).

 

IMPROVES BONE HEALTH AND DECREASES BONE LOSS

Over 25% of all the magnesium in the body is found in the skeleton, and thus magnesium comprises about 1% of bone mineral, and influences both bone matrix and bone mineral metabolism. Inadequate magnesium intake is associated with reduced parathyroid hormone action, which can lead to increased bone loss. A study in postmenopausal found that supplementation with 500 mg of magnesium/day and 600 mg of calcium/day resulted in increased bone mineral density.

 

IMPROVES GLUCOSE CONTROL

Studies found that magnesium deficiencies commonly associated with both insulin dependent and non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, and increased insulin resistance. More than one quart of diabetics has been found to have decreased serum levels of magnesium. A prticular study reported that supplementing with 400mg of magnesium per day significantly improved glucose tolerance in elderly individuals. In addition in a meta-analysis clinical trials rsearchers concluded that magnesium supplementation may lower fasting plasma glucose levels in diabetic individuals.

 

MAY ELLEVIATE MIGRAINE HEADACHES

Studies found that people who suffer from migraine headaches have decreased magnesium levels. In addition studies also found that supplementing with 400-600 mg of magnesium per day may decrease the frequency and severity of migraine headaches.
