Magnesium is a necessary cofactor for over 300 biochemical reactions in the human body. This includes everyday processes, such as muscle building, maintaining nerve function, keeping a healthy heartbeat and sustaining optimal immune system function. It is required during DNA, RNA and protein synthesis, and for the synthesis of glutathione. Magnesium is the second most abundant mineral inside our cells and the second most common deficiency, next to Vitamin D. Magnesium also plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism and its deficiency may worsen insulin resistance, a condition that often precedes diabetes, or may be a consequence of insulin resistance.
What are the Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency? Hyperexcitability, muscular symptoms such as cramps, tremors, spasms, and weakness, fatigue, loss of appetite, confusion, insomnia, irritability, poor memory, and reduced ability to learn. Moderate to severe magnesium deficiency can cause tingling or numbness, heart changes, rapid heartbeat, nausea, vomiting, personality changes, delirium, hallucinations, low calcium levels, low potassium levels, retention of sodium, and potentially death from heart failure.
