Magnesium – what is useful?


Magnesium is a mineral found in high amounts in the body and found naturally in a variety of foods. Most magnesium in the body (approximately 60%) is found in the bones, so it plays an extremely important role in bone development. The rest of the body’s magnesium is found in muscles, soft tissues, and extracellular fluids. Ask your doctor if you can use magnesium and this medicine at the same time.

In the muscles, magnesium acts as an electrical conductor, which reduces them and ensures the stable functioning of the heart. In addition, this mineral helps regulate hundreds of body systems. It acts as a cofactor, helping over 300 different enzymes to carry out chemical reactions in the body. These include building protein, synthesizing genetic material (DNA/RNA), growing and proliferating (reproducing) cells, regulating blood sugar and blood pressure thresholds, nerve function, and building a strong immune system.

Magnesium is also important for the formation of the body’s main energy compound, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is essential for all cellular processes.
