In recent years, there has been a movement toward incorporating supplements into one’s daily routine for optimal health. One of the minerals that has been getting a lot of positive attention has been magnesium (Mg). From books to videos to articles, Mg has been the subject of much research and interest – and for good reason!

Here are some fun facts about magnesium:

  • Mg is one of the most common mineral deficiencies.
  • Mg is crucial for sustaining life.
  • Mg is important for proper sleep at night.
  • Over half of the Mg found in the body is found in the skeleton.

1. Build muscle.
Whether you’re just trying to tone up or grow some serious strength in those biceps, magnesium is vital for building muscle. Those in the fitness industry and those seeking optimal health have known about the importance of magnesium for many years.

2. Improve teeth health.
Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Magnesium is a vital mineral for the health of the teeth. By helping your body absorb calcium, magnesium is an important mineral that promotes stronger bones and well-formed teeth.

3. Focus on the heart.
Did you know that individuals with a magnesium deficiency often experience negative impacts on their heart health? Studies have shown that by taking a magnesium supplement on a regular basis, patients may be able to improve their physical cardiovascular stamina.

4. Reduce headaches.

5. Boost collagen production.
Magnesium also helps to boost the creation of new collagen. By adding magnesium to your daily routine, you are promoting shiny hair and supple skin.

  1. I have to admit I didn’t know magnesium had some many benefits, I think perhaps it is a supplement I need to add into my diet..

  2. I take a daily vitamin which is high in magnesium. I never knew magnesium had such awesome benefits. Thanks for the info.

  3. Because I have had hypothyroidism since birth have several side diseases which are caused by hypothyroidism. Such as depression, arthritis, asthma, osteoporosis. Also have other health concerns such as lymphedema in my left leg/foot.
    This book about how magnesium affects our bodies could be helpful resource to possibly answer some questions I have about my condition.
    I was born with hypothyroidism, was born 3 weeks late because of it. This was in 1940 when very little was understood about how thyroid controlled many functions. Was lucky at 6 weeks of age to be diagnosed with hypothyroidism by my pediatrician. Have been on thyroid medication all my life.
    Both my parents smoked heavily in those days. My father died of massive cerebral hemhorage at 59, he’d had small strokes for at least couple years before his death. My Mother died of complications of heart disease at 85, she had had heart surgery at 78, couldn’t find vein to take blood, had to use her foot. They both drank socially for several years. She smoked up untiil her heart surgery,my father had quit smoking maybe 4 yrs. before he died.
    I would appreciate having chance to receive this book.
