Magnesium: essential, too often overlooked
Magnesium is an essential mineral involved in more than 300 chemical reactions in the body. Like calcium, most of the body’s magnesium (55%) is stored in the bone. Otherwise, it is similar to potassium in that it is found predominantly inside cells. Approximately 25% of the body’s magnesium is present in muscle tissues, a fact that underscores the fundamental role of this mineral in the generation of energy.
Despite its key function in the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the primary source of energy in the body, magnesium is also a “natural calcium channel blocker.”; In addition, magnesium may influence energy levels indirectly by improving the metabolism of potassium. When potassium levels don’t increase with supplementation, this often indicates a lack of magnesium.

Epidemiological study: more muscle strength with more magnesium
The more magnesium elderly people have in their blood, the more muscle strength they have. This is the conclusion from an Italian epidemiological study done at the University of Palermo, which examined eleven hundred people aged between sixty and seventy. Magnesium increased the strength with which the elderly Italians could close a grip spring, the amount of kilograms they could raise with their calves and the weight they could shift doing leg extensions.
