Magnesium Deficiency

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. Found in bones, teeth, and red blood cells, magnesium is an essential element required for proper functioning of the nervous, muscular, and cardiovascular systems. A balanced diet may provide all the magnesium some people need, but those with specific illnesses or who are taking certain medications may benefit from magnesium supplements. The type of magnesium supplement is very important, as some forms of magnesium like magnesium sulfate and magnesium oxide are not well absorbed and while they may work for other reasons like as a laxative, they don’t raise magnesium levels. Magnesium glycinate is an excellent supplement. Ask one of our pharmacists for more information.
