What is the function of Magnesium? In addition to relaxing the nerves and muscles, magnesium supports heart activity and blood circulation. Magnesium increases calcium absorption 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 (or eyelid) twitching, cardiac arrhythmia, extrasystoles (premature contractions of the heart or extra heartbeats), increased heart rate, weak bones, altered blood sugar levels, headaches, high blood pressure, sores.
