Magnesium - Healthy bones and muscle

Magnesium - what is it?

Magnesium, EU NRV (Nutrient Reference Value) 375 mg/day.

Our tissues contain small quantities of magnesium. The bones seem to provide a reserve supply of this mineral in case of a shortage elsewhere in the body. It is also present in the soft tissues inside the cells. Magnesium works well with calcium, potassium and sodium as it contributes to electrolyte balance, which means it helps with the bodies fluid balance. Combined with its supporting role for muscles and protein synthesis it is great for those who have an active lifestyle.

Did you know Magnesium also contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system?

It also helps reduce tiredness and fatigue.

As most of us know, magnesium plays a role in normal bone and teeth formation.

Magnesium is a light, silver-white, malleable, and ductile metallic element.

It is the eighth most abundant element in the earth’s crust. It does not occur as a pure metal in nature, but it is found in large deposits as magnesite, dolomite and other minerals.
