What Does Magnesium Do For Your Body?
Magnesium acts as the gatekeeper for NMDA receptors, which are involved in healthy brain development, memory and learning. It prevents nerve cells from being overstimulated, which can kill them and may cause brain damage.
Magnesium helps your heart muscle cells relax by countering calcium, which stimulates contractions. These minerals compete with each other to ensure heart cells contract and relax properly.
Magnesium acts as a natural calcium blocker, helping your muscle cells relax after contracting. When magnesium levels are low, your muscles may contract too much and cause symptoms such as cramps or muscle spasms.
Higher magnesium intakes have been linked to health benefits such as a lower risk of heart disease, fewer migraines, reduced symptoms of depression and improved blood pressure, blood sugar levels and sleep.
Some studies have found that magnesium naturally present in water is absorbed 30% faster - and better - than the magnesium found in food. Drinking water, these studies say, can also provide more than one third of the calcium we need each day. So what are we, in our mineral-deficient society, doing? We’re stripping all the minerals out of our water, of course.
