Magnesium is needed for every cell, all tissue and every organ in your body. Magnesium is indispensable for life and the body must have it. No organism can produce magnesium by itself but without it, life cannot exist.
Magnesium plays a role in
- the proper functioning of approx. 300 different metabolic catalysts,
- conduction in nerve and muscle cells,
- the release of certain hormones
- producing solid bones.
All of these processes and functions are impaired if there is too little magnesium in the body.
It is no surprise that magnesium appears to be a sort of cure-all. However once you know all the things it does the connection is easy to make.
It is therefore all the more important to not forget about magnesium.
An intake of 300-350 mg of magnesium, depending on age, gender and level of activity. However, patients with magnesium deficiency will always need more magnesium. Simply taking this dosage as a magnesium tablet supplement won’t work as up to 95% is lost in the gut and it’s a laxative.
Up to 90% of people can be said to be magnesium deficient.
