Magnesium is a cornerstone nutrient: a positively charged electrolyte upon that influences the health of your nerves, muscles and more than 300 enzyme systems that are used for protein synthesis and blood regulation. Stored in bones, it also serves to strengthen bones and teeth, making them harder and more resistant to damage. Finally, it is essential for the absorption and metabolism of calcium, another mineral that magnesium exists with in a state of balance: too much magnesium and your neuromuscular system is depressed; conversely, too little magnesium leads to the muscles being overexcited.
Letting your magnesium levels drop low is a dangerous proposition: too little magnesium, leaves your nerves and muscles in a state of excitement, leading to involuntary twitching, difficulty with sleep and loss of appetite. At Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center, we can discover if hypomagnesium is having an effect on your life: your entire neuromuscular system cannot lie.
Good food sources of magnesium:
