Magnesium deficiency is one of the most common nutritional problems in the industrialized world today. This deficiency is the result of agricultural practices, food preparation techniques, and dietary trends.
Fulhealth Magnesium is a high purity, bio-available magnesium chloride that is considered a food for the body. Dr. Norman Shealy M.D.,Ph.D.,Neurosurgeon, Inventer of the "TENS" machine, Lecturer,Author and considered one of the worlds experts on pain management and natural health, states: "Nearly everyone is deficient in magnesium and every known illness is associated with a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is the most critical mineral required for electrical stability of every cell in the body. A magnesium deficiency may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient".
It is calcium that allows the muscle to contract - it is magensium that allows the mucle to relax. Magnesium is necessary for the normal functioning of around 350 known bio-chemical reactions that occur throughout the body. These include muscle relaxation, immune function, cardiac function, clotting, nerve conduction etc. Indeed there is not a bodily department in which magnesium is not essential. It has shown to help prevent heart disease, cancer, blood pressure, kidney stones, cramping stress and improves energy and promotes restful sleep.
What is magnesium
Magnesium is unfortunately, one of the worlds best kept secrets for maintaining and achieving great health. It is used in naturopathic medicine but also in the world of allopathic medicine where it is used daily in emergency rooms to save lives.
Magnesium protects cells from aluminum, mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium and nickel, which explains why re-mineralisation is so essential for heavy metal detoxification and chelation. It is magnesium's role to protect the cell against oxyradical damage and assists in the absorption and metabolism of B vitamins, vitamin C and E, which are anti-oxidants important in cell protection. It is highly likely that low total body magnesium contributes to heavy metal toxicity in children and is a strong participant in the etiology of learning disorders.
