Pure magnesium is a silvery-white metal, which burns with a dazzling brilliance – something you’ve probably seen demonstrated by your science teacher at school!
It is the second most abundant mineral in cells after potassium, but the two ounces or so found in the typical human body is present not as metal but as magnesium ions (positively-charged magnesium atoms found either in solution or complexed with other tissues, such as bone).
Roughly one quarter of this magnesium is found in muscle tissue and three-fifths in bone; but less than 1% of it is found in blood serum, although that is used as the commonest indicator of magnesium status.
This blood serum magnesium can be further subdivided into free ionic, complex-bound and protein-bound portions, but it’s the ionic portion that’s considered most important in measuring magnesium status, because it is physiologically active.
And as such, Magnesium is an essential mineral required by every organ in the body for a range of activities including bone, protein and fatty acid formation. It is also essential in activating vitamins B and D, relaxing muscles, regulating calcium levels and helping blood to clot and is required for the secretion of insulin. Many of us do not get enough magnesium in our diets. Adults require about 300 to 400 milligrams a day.
Where is it found?
Magnesium is found in varying levels in nuts, wholegrains, dark green vegetables, fish and meat. Rich sources include pumpkin and sunflower seeds, bran, tofu, potatoes, spinach and baked beans.
How else can it be a benefit?
Muscular problems such as cramps, fibromyalgia and aches and pains, which may sometimes be linked to magnesium deficiency.
Migraines and headaches, including tension headaches.
Period pain and symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, including mood swings , fluid retention, premenstrual migraines.
Fatigue, which may be a symptom of magnesium deficiency.
It may also play a role in helping to maintain cardiovascular health and healthy bone density.
