Magnesium is an important mineral that’s involved in a lot of physiological and cellular activities within the body.
More than half of the magnesium in the body is deposited in the bone with the remaining found in the muscles and soft tissues. It is important to notice that the blood contains less than 1% of magnesium.
Despite its very important function for healthy bones it has been identified as being involved in the activation of more than 300 enzymes, which makes magnesium a key component in the cellular processes that generate energy.
Magnesium is particularly important to maintain the strength and stamina of our body, since it closely involved with bone formation and the healthy functioning of our muscles. Magnesium also contributes in energy-yielding metabolism and reducing tiredness and fatigue.
Magnesium is generally available in plant- and animal-based foods and ingredients. It can be found in green leafy vegetables, nuts, meat, and other sources. In Europe, nutrient reference values (NRVs) are set as guidance levels of vitamins and minerals needed daily. The NRV for magnesium is 375 mg per day. A varied and balanced diet is important to make sure you have enough magnesium intake daily. Aside from that, you may consider taking magnesium supplements.
