Magical Magnesium

Posted by Abby W.

I read an article about magnesium reducing risk of stroke today, and started reading up on it a bit more. I'm pretty impressed with all the benefits of magensium. Here's what I learned...

- Magnesium is used by the body to help maintain muscles, nerves, and bones. It is also used in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.

- Magnesium helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure.

- Magnesium is is particularly important for maintaining a normal heart rhythm and is often used by physicians to treat irregular heartbeat (arrythmia).

- Magnesium may be beneficial for bladder problems in women, especially common disturbances in bladder control and the sense of "urgency."

- Adequate intake of calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D coupled with overall proper nutrition and weight-bearing exercise throughout childhood and adulthood are the primary preventive measures for osteoporosis.
