Magnesium is an essential mineral in that is most know for its assistance with muscle relaxation. It works antagonistically in the body with calcium which is responsible for muscle contractions. Without enough magnesium our skeletal and smooth muscles would stay in a chronic state of contraction.
Magnesium also assists with many other biochemical reactions in our body related to metabolism and overall energy. Signs of magnesium deficiency include:
* Anxiety
* Intermittant Hyperactivity
* Difficulty Falling Asleep
* Difficulty Staying Asleep
* Muscle Cramping- especially menstrual
* Fibromyalgia
* Facial Tics
* Eye Twitching
If you have any of the above symptoms you may need to incorporate a magnesium supplement into your regimen.
