MAGNESIUM


THE BREAKDOWN
  • Transfers and produces energy in the body
  • Maker of genetic material
  • Breaks down protein and carbohydrates
  • Transportation agent for substances through cell membrane
  • Provides healthy heart, bones, blood vessels and muscles


IN THE BODY
The body absorbs only 50 percent of all ingested Magnesium.


WITHDRAWALS
Lack of Magnesium in the body can result in heart problems, tiredness, cardiovascular problems, hypertension, diabetes, migraines, kidney stones and mental disorders.


NATURAL FORMS
Natural forms of Magnesium can be found in vegetables, whole grains and nuts.


DAILY DOSE
  • Women (under 30) 310 mg (Over 30) 320 mg
  • Men (under 30) 400 mg (Over 30) 420 mg
  • During pregnancy (14-18) 400 mg (19-30) 350 mg (over) 360 mg


OVER DOSAGE
Taking too much Magnesium can lead to depression, tiredness and skin rashes.


FIGHTING AGENTS
Magnesium often mixes with calcium when performing its body functions. If you drink too much, are on antidepressants, estrogen or heart drugs, these can prevent it from getting into the body.

Supplements are used to deal with stress, cardiovascular disease, asthma, kidney stones, osteoporosis, diabetes, and muscle cramps.


WARNINGS
If you have serious heart problems or kidney failure, you should not be taking these supplements.
