Magnesium - "The Missing Mineral"

Magnesium Menubar
Over 300 enzymes need magnesium to function

Over 300 enzymes need magnesium to function

Mg2+ -dependent enzymes appear in virtually every metabolic pathway

Mg serves as “gatekeeper” to stop calcium entering into and activating a nerve - with Mg deficiency, the nerve can become over-activated, which can cause muscle tension, soreness, spasms, cramps and fatigue, migraine, and spastic lower esophageal and pyloric sphincter function leading to GERD;
Keeps heart rhythm steady.  The heart is a muscle - research suggests that cardiac/heart muscle is more sensitive to magnesium intake than skeletal muscle.
Supports a healthy immune system - fighting infection
Helps regulate blood sugar levels.   Intracellular enzyme tyrosine kinase needs Mg to allow insulin to lower blood sugar
Key involvement in cellular ATP energy production
Converts Vitamin D to CALCITRIOL (its active form).   Crucial in many health functions
Other enzymes that rely on Mg - creatine-kinase activation, adenylate-cyclase, and sodium-potassium-ATPase
Helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function (works together with calcium). Mg affects cell mechanisms controlling muscle and nerve cell activity.
Mg orchestrates the electric current that sparks through the body's miles of nerves
Promotes proper/strong formation of bones and teeth
Promotes normal blood pressure.   Stimulates production of prostacyclins and nitric oxide (NO) -both potent artery-relaxing agents.
Mg promotes normal bowel function
Mg involved in protein synthesis
Mg helps transport other minerals across cell membranes
