What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is second to potassium in terms of concentration within the body’s cells. Its primary role in the body is in enzyme activation; in fact, magnesium is involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions within the body, and is necessary for every major biological process.** 60% of the body’s magnesium is found in bones, 26% in muscles, and the rest in soft tissues and bodily fluids. Interestingly enough, it is found in abundance in the tissues that are the most metabolically active, such as the brain, liver, heart, and kidneys, which shows magnesium’s important role in energy production.**
Magnesium is an essential mineral, meaning the body cannot create it and it must be obtained through dietary sources. It is naturally found in whole foods including tofu, legumes, seeds, nuts, whole grains, and green leafy vegetables. However, with the unfortunate amount of processed foods in the modern diet, many people do not get a proper amount of magnesium through diet alone, and therefore should consider supplementation of this important mineral. Geriatrics and premenstrual women are especially shown to have low levels of magnesium, and are two groups who could greatly benefit from this essential mineral.**
Magnesium Powder Supplements
Magnesium supplements in powdered form are a convenient way to add this essential mineral to your daily regimen. They are typically available in three forms: magnesium citrate, magnesium oxide, and magnesium ascorbate. Magnesium citrate tends to be the best absorbed, magnesium oxide delivers the highest levels of elemental magnesium, and magnesium ascorbate is the buffered form of this mineral.
