Thank you guys for the lovely discussion.
I find it very funny that more doctors aren’t clued in to the benefits of magnesium, because we use it all the time in conventional medicine. But we never stop to think about why or how important it is to our general health or why it helps our bodies function better.
I remember using magnesium when I worked in the emergency room. It was a critical “medication” on the crash cart. .
This critical mineral is actually responsible for over 300 enzyme reactions and is found in all of your tissues — but mainly in your bones, muscles, and brain. You must have it for your cells to make energy, for many different chemical pumps to work, to stabilize membranes, and to help muscles relax.
You might be magnesium deficient if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Muscle cramps or twitches
- Sensitivity to loud noises
- Trouble swallowing etc
Magnesium deficiency has even has been linked to inflamation in the body and higher CRP levels.
