This 100% organic magnesium chloride comes from deep in the ocean and is highly absorbable. Best taken before bed, just dilute one teaspoon in water.
Magnesium is a mineral that is essential for proper functioning of the body. Magnesium is found inside every living cell in the body. Magnesium is alkaline and it binds acids in the body, regulating acid-alkaline balance. Some of the major functions of magnesium in the body are: calcium, potassium, sodium and vitamin C utilization, activation of B vitamins, efficient production of enzymes, cardiac function, relaxation of muscles including the heart muscle, metabolism of carbohydrates, conversion of blood sugar into energy, bone formation, aid in proper insulin production and for prevention of aging in the cells and organs.
PROBLEMS CAUSED BY MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCY
When we have a magnesium deficiency, calcium is not properly used by the body. Too much calcium (calcium not balanced by magnesium) may result in cellular death and this imbalance may cause:
calcification of tissues and organs (including kidney, bladder and the joints)
Excess calcium can be a problem, but excess magnesium is not because magnesium is eliminated when unused, while calcium builds up. Researchers have also found that a magnesium deficiency greatly contributes to blood vessel constriction, high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries. Most victims of heart attacks are found to have a magnesium deficiency.
