plays an essential role in over 300 enzyme reactions in the human
body. All refined foods are lacking magnesium, as well as most other
essential minerals. Most Americans eat a highly refined diet and
are, as a result, deficient in magnesium.
regulates calcium transport and deposition into bone. It is necessary
for tissue growth and development, immune system health and function,
and the maintenance of normal intracellular calcium, potassium,
and sodium levels.
of magnesium's critical roles is in the conduction of nerve impulses
and the relaxation of muscle tissue. Calcium and potassium stimulate
muscle contraction -- magnesium makes muscles relax. This is very
critical for heart function as you need ample stores of magnesium
to allow for proper heart muscle relaxation. A lack of tissue magnesium
has been implicated in cardiac failure
magnesium deficiency is fairly common, it is frequently overlooked
as a source of problems. The reason is that serum magnesium levels
(the test most doctors use) do not reflect actual body stores of
magnesium. Blood levels are kept within the normal range at the
expense of other tissues. When deficiency does occur, it is usually
due to excessive loss of magnesium in urine, gastrointestinal system
disorders that cause a loss of magnesium or limit magnesium absorption,
or a chronically low intake of magnesium. Magnesium elimination
is increased in people who use alcohol, caffeine or excess sugar,
or who take diuretics or birth control pills.
of magnesium deficiency include confusion, disorientation, loss
of appetite, depression, anxiety, muscle contractions and cramps,
tingling, numbness, abnormal heart rhythms, and coronary spasm.
Magnesium deficiency can also precipitate headaches, including migraines,
muscle cramping and nervous twitches and tics.
