Facts about Magnesium

Magnesium is the required mineral for good health. It was Sir Humphry Davy who segregated magnesium from Epson salts as magnesium does not exists in Free State. Magnesium is found in different proportions in different parts of our body; half of it is in cells and tissues, other half combined with other materials form our body framework and only a very little of it is found in our blood. Magnesium is there fore essential for proper functioning of nervous system, heart, regulation of blood pressure and for maintaining our bones. It also helps to metabolize energy and to break proteins for proper digestion.

The requirement of magnesium of our body cannot be met with the food we eat daily as it contains a meager amount of magnesium. To fulfill the need of the body one needs to eat variety of green vegetables as the chlorophyll pigment contains magnesium, other than this the mineral can be found in nuts, seeds and few whole grains. Fruits should also be taken in good amount. For non vegetarians meats and sea foods are of great help.

People involved in heavy physical activities should be on high magnesium diet as it helps in transmitting oxygen to the tissues, magnesium helps children in increasing their concentration level.

The correct summation of too much or too little is bad for you is correct , as too much water can give you water poisoning and kill you horrifically ! Therefore , do not listen to the advice of someone who tells you to drink x amount of water a day ; you have your own specific amount of water which you need for your bodies intake , and their advice could kill you , or even dehydrate you ( eventual death anyway!) Rather have your BMI ( body mass index,) measured , and let your health professional calculate out your various needs from those calculations - this includes magnesium as well + + + other vitamins and minerals !!
