Magnesium plays such a crucial part in your body– responsible for over 300 enzymatic systems.
60% of tissue magnesium is located in the skeleton. The remainder is within the cells in which it helps with:
Excretion (prevention of kidney stones), digestive health, nerve conduction, prevention of tissue calcification, needed for muscle contraction, bone formation, energy production, glucose and fat metabolism, protein synthesis, and detoxification (liver function).
Here are 12 primary symptoms associated with deficiencies in magnesium
2) fast heart rate
3) high blood pressure
5) kidney stones
6) muscle cramps
7) muscle spasms
9) tissue calcification
10) irregular heartbeat
11) hyperkinetic behavior
12) fast oxidation rate (adults should be mixed oxidizers)
To know for sure if you are deficient in magnesium, consider an at-home minerals and metals lab test. Or, work with an integrative health practitioner or naturopath.

If not deficient, the optimal ratio for calcium to magnesium is 7:1.
