Magnesium (Mg) - “Missing Miracle Mineral”

MgCl2: Possible Counter Indications and Warnings

“Without magnesium, muscle and nerve functions are compromised and energy diminished. We are operating with the power turned off. “

- Dr. Jerry Aikawa - The University of Colorado.Author of "Magnesium: Its Biological Significance."

People in N. America tend to consume too much calcium and sodium, andinsufficient magnesium and potassium - This is often reflected in urine tests which show calcium and sodium being excreted while magnesium and potassium are being retained. All four of these minerals work together in the body.Problems arise when one or more of the minerals aredeficientor when the minerals areout of balancewith each other.

So what's so special about magnesium? . . .

When magnesium is deficient, which it is for many people, then replenishing the body's stores of this important and busy mineral has a healing effect on a wide range of diseases as well as being able to rejuvenate the aging body.

Mg deficiency doubles your risk of dying!

A study published in the journal "Critical Care" found that a deficiency in magnesium makes you twice as likely to die as other people. About 70% of Americans are deficient in this critical mineral.

Why are we magnesium deficient?

Signs of Mg deficiency

In the USA, magnesium supplementation is dramatically under-utilized by conventional physicians.

How to supplement magnesium?

Mg has vital and essential functions in the body

For more details: Functions of Mg in the body



Maintains alkaline pH balance in the body

Next to potassium, Mg is the most abundant positively charged mineral buffer within the body's cells.

Determines amount of energy produced by your body's cells

Counteracts and regulates body's use of calcium

Prevents abnormal calcification of tissues

Necessary for production of glutathione

A major antioxidant in the body

Promotes healthy functioning of nerves and muscles (includes the heart)

Activates more than 300 enzymes in the body

To metabolize blood sugars, proteins and carbohydrates

Needed for proper bone growth

Indirectly related to adequate calcium absorption

Defends body from infectious diseases, toxic chemicals, heavy metals

Controls uptake and release of many hormones, nutrients and neurotransmitters

Mg is a mineral needed by every cell in your body

Mg is the 4th most abundant mineral in the body; Most magnesium is found in intracellular fluid in bone, muscle and soft tissue in combination with calcium and phosphorus. Of the 20-30 g of Mg in our body, 60-65% of total body Mg is in our bones and teeth, ~25% in our muscle cells, and only 1% is in the blood.

The highest concentrations of Mg are in the heart and brain

Areas of considerable electrical activity

Mg Deficiency is involved in many Health Problems

(Since Mg has so many roles in the body)
