An extremely essential element for all plant and animal life, Magnesium ions combine with Phosphates and Calcium ions on the cellular level to produce light, heat and energy in the form of ATP (Adenisone Triphospate), and ADP (Adenisone Diphospate) molecules. It is an essential nutrient in the cellular synthesis of proteins and carbohydrates and the subsequent production of lean muscle tissue. Deficiencies of Magnesium produce symptoms of frequent migraine headaches, muscle cramping and constipation.
Magnesium helps in the formation and function of muscle tissue. Each molecule of muscle protein (myosin) has an atom of magnesium in its chemical structure. This protein called myosin is critical in the healthy functioning of the most vital muscle in the human body – the heart – thus magnesium may well be called the Heart Mineral. Readily bio-available magnesium as provided by Mother Earth Minerals is essential in keeping the heart muscle healthy and happy. Magnesium deficiency has been linked to potentially life-threatening heart arrhythmias and palpitations. Heart disease is still the #1 killer in America, and is possibly linked to magnesium-deficient diets and lifestyle.
