We all know that calcium is necessary for healthy bones and teeth. It
helps regulate heart rhythm, plays key roles in cell signaling, muscle
contraction, nerve function and even blood clotting. But what most
people don't realize is that calcium (along with other minerals) cannot
be absorbed or function properly without magnesium.
In fact, magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body
and is a cofactor in more than 300 biochemical reactions that occur in
your cells, including those that involve muscle and nerve function,
blood pressure regulation, protein synthesis and blood glucose control.
Find out what else magnesium can do for you in this issue of Making a Difference!
We'll also ask... Do you need more magnesium? (A test you can take to find out.)
