Magnesium is involved in a large number of biochemical processes in the body and plays a key role in energy production. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, a regular heart rhythm and healthy bones and teeth. Magnesium is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and amino acids. It has an important role in the body utilization of calcium, phosphorus, sodium, potassium and several vitamins including vitamin C, E and B-complex vitamins. Magnesium interacts with parathyroid hormone and vitamin D to regulate healthy calcium homeostasis in the body. Diets with higher amounts of magnesium are associated with significantly lower risks of diabetes. Magnesium may help alleviate some symptoms of chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and may prevent migraine headaches.
