What is Magnesium
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body found in every human cell. The concentration of magnesium is distributed between muscles, tissues, extracellular fluids, and the skeleton. Thus, the role of magnesium is of great importance as it is involved in over 300 biological functions in the body like the intervention in enzyme reactions, regulating heartbeat rhythms and membrane functions. Yet, deficiency is magnesium is largely overlooked. Thus, magnesium supplements are underutilized.
Deficiency in magnesium can translate in noticeable symptoms including, poor digestion, muscle aches or spasms, anxiety and sleep disorders. There are a few factors which can contribute to magnesium deficiency: digestive disorders, use of antibiotics, and soil depletion.
Magnesium is abundant in nature and found in dietary sources. The highest concentrations of magnesium are found in whole seeds like peanuts, beans & legumes, unmilled whole grains, and green vegetables like spinach and kale. However, if you feel that your daily requirement of magnesium is not met through your diet, it is highly recommended to opt for a magnesium supplement, like magnesium citrate capsules.
