Magnesium is considered an essential material and must always be supplied to the body in sufficient quantities. This generally takes place via nutrition, as it is contained in almost all foods and in drinking water. The daily magnesium requirements vary, dependent on age and gender, between 24 and 400 mg per day.
A magnesium deficiency can cause various symptoms such as migraines, calf cramps and a lack of concentration. The effects of this mineral substance are therefore also highly diverse. Magnesium not only contributes towards normal nervous system functions, but also towards normal muscle functions and normal protein synthesis. It even contributes towards the maintenance of normal teeth and bones and normal physical function, and therefore has a major influence on our general health.
