Magnesium maintains healthy blood pressure by relaxing the nervous system and reducing stress and inflammation
Magnesium is one of seven essential minerals that is crucial for the body’s function. It plays a role in over 600 enzyme reactions in the body. Magnesium can be found in bones, muscles, soft tissues, and bodily fluids. It is estimated that 50-90% of people are deficient. This is due to the lack of magnesium in many diets including “the Standard American Diet”, as well as a world with chronic stress. Common signs of magnesium deficiency include muscle stiffness or twitching, chronic irritability, increase in blood pressure, increase in inflammation and poor blood sugar control.
