The importance of magnesium is difficult to surpass; In fact, one nutritionist calls it 'the key to health and life'. According to the National Institutes of Health, "Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate various biochemical reactions in the body." Muscle contraction, nerve function, carbohydrate metabolism, ATP activation, protein synthesis, blood pressure normalization and regulation of blood sugar levels are only a few of the processes of this essential mineral. In addition, magnesium supports elevations in HDL (good) cholesterol levels and lowers cholesterol levels in serum LDL (bad) cholesterol, while inhibiting the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. Magnesium deficiency is associated with many ailments such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, hypoglycaemia and insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, kidney stones, osteoporosis, asthma, periodontal disease and depression.
Unfortunately, a magnesium deficiency is common, because research shows that about 75% of people do not get enough of this essential mineral. Adjust your diet so that it contains more magnesium-rich foods such as nuts (especially almonds, cashew nuts and walnuts) and top up this daily with Essential Mg . Essential Mg contains 5 forms of biological magnesium. It is the ideal way to ensure that you get the optimal amounts of these important minerals.
