Magnesium is a cofactor in enzyme-assisted biochemical processes in our body


Magnesium is required for the body to produce and store energy. Magnesium-dependent enzyme helps activating adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the fundamental energy storage molecule of the body. Without magnesium, there is no energy and no life.


Under the direction of magnesium, enzymes and nutrients work together to form the building blocks from food to create our body. RNA and DNA, which contain the genetic blueprints for the formation of all our body proteins, are also dependent on magnesium

Nerve signals

Magnesium and calcium work in conjunction with each other to create action potentials which pump nerve impulses to and fro the brain, directing our actions, including thought processes.


Calcium causes contraction and Magnesium brings about relaxation. Magnesium deficiency leads to spasms, twitches, convulsion, asthmatic attacks, painful periods, and hypertension
