Magnesium is an essential mineral for the human body and which can't be produced by the body itself.  Food researchers concluded that 66% of all women and 59% of all men in the developed world do not get the necessary daily intake of 300 to 350 mg magnesium with their food.

Magnesium takes part in about 300 different processes in the body, mainly in the neurogene care of the muscles and in the metabolic conversion of proteins and carbohydrates.

The main causes for magnesium deficiency are over-manured, low-lye agricultural ground, very soft drinking water, unvaried nutrition with a high level of proteins and fat, regular intake of alcohol and laxatives, as well as stress, diabetes and the taking of hormones.

Many different diseases can show up as symptoms of magnesium deficiency, such as cramp in the muscles (especially of the calf), shivering, nausea, unrest, confusion, palpitations (of the heart) and increased irritability of the muscles.

Magnesium smoothes and relaxes in case of over-irritability, unrest, cramp or disturbances of the heart rhythm.  It increases oxygen absorption, improves the supply of oxygen to the heart and contributes towards a general well being and an improvement of productivity.
