The power of the valuable electrolyte - magnesium

Magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals in the body, and a cofactor in about 300 enzymatic reactions in the body.* It is the second-most concentrated nutrient in the body’s cells next to calcium, and half of the body's magnesium is stored in the bones.*

Magnesium is an essential electrolyte mineral involved in maintaining proper cardiovascular, nerve and muscle health.*  It has also shown in research to help significantly increase bone mineral content.* 

Magnesium is also critical in energy production and helps support the absorption and metabolism of other minerals.* Studies have also shown that magnesium plays an important role in heart health, including blood pressure, heart rhythm, arterial wall health and metabolic issues.*

Difficulty sleeping has also been associated with low magnesium levels, so supplementation may help.* 

Many athletes, teens and elderly adults use magnesium for muscle cramping since it works in muscle contraction and relaxation.* 

And let's not forget the added beneficial side benefit of too much magnesium - a loose stool.  This can be helpful for those needing assistance but increase gradually if you haven't used additional magnesium before.

Try eating more magnesium-rich foods like spinach, broccoli, chives, avocados, almonds, carrots, potatoes and bananas.

Check your multi-vitamin and mineral formula and be sure you are getting enough magnesium. Most 1-per-day formulas are low in magnesium. If so, be sure to consider adding additional magnesium to your supplement regimen.
