“The Extraordinary Power of Magnesium”

(as printed in Masters of Health Magazine May 2018)

Excerpts:  “Symptoms of low magnesium (hypomagnesaemia) may include tremor, agitation, muscle cramp, cardiac arrhythmia, hypokalaemia (potassium deficiency), chronic fatigue, numbness, tingling, seizures, excessive electricalactivity in the brain, sleep disturbance, bronchial spasms and asthma, allergic reactions, hyperactivity and ADHD, compromised immune response (over or under), as well as free calcium in blood causing hypertension and calcium precipitation, which results in ligament and vasculature hardening, fibroids and lumps. Associated diseases can include osteoporosis, metabolic syndrome, insulin-resistant diabetes, arteriosclerosis, skin disorders, lymph and kidney dysfunction, thyroid disease, cancer, anxiety and depression. As magnesium is also essential to synthesise RNA and DNA, low magnesium has even been found to be carcinogenic.5” …

“Asthma symptoms or anaphylaxis are also a sign of magnesium deficiency. An excessive immune response at the slightest provocation, resulting in uncontrollable chest spasms and tightening of airways can become debilitating, exhausting and in extreme cases fatal. Magnesium can calm down this reaction via a decrease in superoxide production, indicating that magnesium may modulate the inflammatory process and decrease release of free radicals.”

“The magnesium ion has an inhibitory action on smooth muscle contraction, on histamine release from mast cells and on acetylcholine release from cholinergic nerve terminals.”6  Low magnesium can also present as irregular heart beat with ventricular ‘mis-beats’ or subsequently atrial fibrillation. The left ventrical of the heart contains more magnesium receptor sites than other muscles and just like getting eye twitches or leg spasms when magnesium levels get too low, the heart muscle can develop spasms.” READ MORE
