Magnesium deficiency can be deadly; know the signs

04.06.15 09:01 PM

Magnesium deficiency is one of the major contributors to cardiac arrhythmia, angina, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and sudden death from heart attack.

Magnesium is required by all the body’s major organs in order for them to function properly. It regulates the body’s enzyme reactions, transports essential ions across cell membranes and helps the body in producing adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a coenzyme necessary for cell metabolism.

A deficiency of magnesium is dangerous for the nervous system, heart and kidneys. Unfortunately, almost everyone is low in magnesium. But there are several telltale signs that serve to indicate low magnesium levels:
  • Muscle cramping and twitching.
  • Abnormal heart contractions.
  • Depression and low moods.
  • Ringing in the ears.
  • Kidney stones.
There is no fear of overload of magnesium in the diet. Any excess is excreted harmlessly. Taking magnesium can bring on diarrhea in some people the first few days, but it does not last long.

Magnesium can be used in the form of a topical salve or in an inhaler when necessary to relieve acute bronchial spasm. Magnesium liquids rubbed on penetrate the skin, making it possible to get much more magnesium into children — especially small children — without the risk of diarrhea.

Vitamin B6 helps magnesium work and helps on its own to reduce asthma. Vitamin B12 is far and away the most useful nutrient to eliminate asthmatic wheezing, for children as well as adults up to about age 50. However, for seniors it is best to take B12 shots, because their intrinsic factor is usually gone and there can be little or no absorption of B12.
