What is the function of Magnesium? In addition to coordinating nervous system and muscle function and helping with muscle contraction and relaxation, magnesium also supports optimal heart activity and blood circulation. It helps calm nerves, lower blood pressure numbers in situations of hypertension and reduce palpitations, anxiety and more. Magnesium increases calcium absorption in bones and teeth and thus helps strengthen bones and maintain healthy teeth. An adequate magnesium intake supports the overall activity of the nervous system.
Magnesium deficiency symptoms include: muscle weakness, tremors and muscle spasms, eye twitching and eyelid twitching, twitching of the undereye area, muscle cramps such as leg cramps at night, calf cramps after exercise, foot cramps, cramps under the chin, cardiac arrhythmia in the form of extrasystoles or skipped heart beats (premature contractions of the heart or extra heartbeats), tachycardia (increased heart rate), high blood pressure, weak, frail or brittle bones that are more prone to fractures, increased risks of osteoporosis, high blood sugar levels, sores, headaches, insomnia, anxiety, low mood and depression, even fatigue.
