Magnesium plays an important role in the structure and function of the human body. The average adult human body contains about 25 grams of magnesium. 60% of all magnesium found in the body is in the skeleton, about 27% in the muscle, while 6 to 7% is found in other cells.
Magnesium is involved in more than 300 essential metabolic reactions in the body. The metabolism of carbohydrates and fats to produce energy requires numerous magnesium dependant chemical reactions.
Magnesium is required for the active transport of ions like potassium and calcium across the cell membranes. Because of its role in ion transportation, magnesium affects the conduction of nerve impulses, muscle contraction and the normal rhythm of the heart.
A deficiency of magnesium can lead to increased irritability and an irregular heartbeat, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.
Magnesium comprises about 1% of bone mineral and is known to influence bone mineral metabolism and if magnesium serum levels are low it has been known to have an effect on lower serum calcium levels resulting in bone crystals becoming larger and more brittle.
Decreased bone mineral density is one of the prime features of osteoporosis and it is therefore important to maintain adequate magnesium levels in the body.
Magnesium depletion is commonly associated with both insulin dependent and non-dependent diabetes mellitus patients. This could result in increased insulin resistance and affect blood glucose levels. By supplementing with magnesium one could improve glucose tolerance in the elderly and diabetic patient.
