Magnesium plays an essential role in over 300 enzyme reactions in the human body. All refined foods are lacking Magnesium, as well as most other essential minerals. Many Americans eat a highly refined diet and are, as a result, deficient in Magnesium.
Some important functions of Magnesium are:
Regulates Calcium transport and deposition into bone
Necessary for tissue growth and development
Supports immune system health and function
A primary electrolyte along with Calcium, Potassium, Sodium and Chloride
Helps in the conduction of nerve impulses and the relaxation of muscle tissue
