Magnesium Healing Properties

So, lately I’ve found myself divoring the book Ultramind solution, written by Mark Hyman, M.D., promoter of Fuctional Medicine. You may want to check some details here.

Mr. Hyman approach on problems is innovative and provides you with a new way to detoxify and take care of your body that will lead you to a clear mind and way of thinking.

Among the others, i have discovered the power of Magnesium; it is impressive the benefits of this mineral:

1. Better sleep – Melatonin, the sleep regulating hormone. is disturbed when Magnesium is deficient.

2. Relaxes the nervous system – Serotonin, which relaxes the nervous system and elevates mood, is dependent on Magnesium.

3. Bigger, stronger muscles – Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF-1), which is a major contributor to the growth and strength of muscles, are produced more under the influence of Magnesium.

4. Better flexibility – Lactic acid, which doesn’t allow the muscles to relax properly and promotes cramps, builds up with low Magnesium.

5. Bone integrity and strength – Calcium and Calcitonin are promoted by Magnesium that makes them fix to the bones. Magnesium also suppresses a hormone called parathyroid that breaks down bone.

6. Remineralizes teeth – Phosphorous and calcium in saliva are unhealthy balanced when Magnesium is deficient.

7. Alkalizes the body – The body’s pH balance is restored by Magnesium.

8. Hydrates – Proper hydration is promoted by the essential electrolyte Magnesium is.

9. Helps to relieve constipation – Toxins in the bowel are cleansed by Magnesium.

10. Enzyme function – Enzymes are protein molecules that stimulate every chemical reaction in the body. Magnesium is required to make hundreds of these enzymes work and assists with thousands of others.

11. Diabetes – Insulin secretion, which facilitates sugar metabolism, is enhanced by Magnesium; without it, glucose is not able to transfer into cells, so glucose and insulin build up in the blood, causing various types of tissue damage, including the nerves in the eyes.
