5. Why does my body need Magnesium?
Magnesium is one of the most abundant elements in the human body and plays an elementary role in body functions and metabolism. Some of the essential functions associated with magnesium are:
Magnesium is required for over 300 different enzymes, helping the body to function correctly. Magnesium is one of the most important of all cofactors in the body.
Activities such as cell production or protein synthesis require ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) as a sole energy source in cells. Production of ATP is determined by magnesium. Absence of sufficient magnesium obstructs ATP production and thus normal cell function.
Magnesium is also responsible for facilitating normal DNA synthesis and thus overall cell function.
Magnesium also regulates homeostasis; balancing minerals in the body.
