||Magnesium is a mineral needed by every cell of your
body. About half of your body's magnesium stores are found inside cells of body tissues
and organs, and half are combined with calcium and phosphorus in bone. Only 1 percent of
the magnesium in your body is found in blood. Your body works very hard to keep blood
levels of magnesium constant
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain
normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, and bones strong. It is also
involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
