Mg - Alkalizing agent

Mg is a positively charged alkalizing mineral

–   Acid minerals - have a negative electrical charge and are attracted to the H+ ion. They include: chlorine (Cl-), sulfur (S-), phosphorus (P-), and form hydrochloric acid (HCl), sulfuric acid (H2SO4), and phosphoric acid (H3PO4).

–   Alkaline minerals - have a positive electrical charge and are attracted to the negatively charged OH- ion. Nutritionally important alkaline minerals include calcium (Ca+), potassium (K+), magnesium (Mg+), and sodium (Na+).Na and Ca tend to be oversupplied in the typical western diet.

Mild acidosisdisturbs Na+/ K+ pump function / cellular energy production - To compensate for an overly acidic blood pH, hydrogen (H+) ions are moved into cells and exchange places with potassium ions inside the cells (to maintain electrical equilibrium inside cell), thus disturbing Na+/ K+ pump function.
