The benefits of magnesium supplementation have been widely researched. Most well -known is its effects as a muscle relaxant. Magnesium has been shown to be important in healthy heart function and normal heart rhythm. Additionally, it is needed for the assimilation of calcium into the bones. This is especially important if you take calcium supplements. Supplementation has been linked to a reduced risk of osteoporosis.
A deficiency of magnesium interferes with nerve and muscle impulse transmission causing nervousness and irritability and has been linked to depression and other neurological disorders. Supplementing with magnesium can help prevent dizziness, muscle cramping and weakness, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), depression and aids in the homeostasis of body temperature, pH and blood sugar levels.
