What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is a very important mineral that is vital to the body’s function. Every organ in the body, particularly the heart, kidneys and muscles require magnesium. This mineral is stored in the bones and organs, where it can be utilized for its many essential functions. Magnesium helps keep bones and teeth strong, contributes to normal blood pressure, helps regulate a number of important nutrients in the body, contributes to energy production and also helps keep the heart rhythm steady. This important mineral can be found in a number of foods including leafy green vegetables, whole grains and nuts. However, many factors have a negative impact on magnesium absorption including too much salt, coffee, sugary drinks and alcohol. Medical conditions such as diabetes and irritable bowel syndrome also have an effect on magnesium absorption. Magnesium deficiency can have a number of symptoms including anxiety, nausea, sleep disorders, irregular heart beat and low blood pressure.
