Magnesium is a crucially important mineral for optimal health, performing a wide array of biological functions, including but not limited to:
- Activating muscles and nerves
- Creating energy in your body by activating adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
- Helping digest proteins, carbohydrates, and fats
- Serving as a building block for RNA and DNA synthesis
- It’s also a precursor for neurotransmitters like serotonin
Few people get enough magnesium in their diet these days. Meanwhile, calcium tends to be over-utilized and taken in high quantities. This can cause more harm than good, as it’s very important to have a proper balance between these two minerals.
