What is Magnesium?

According to MEDLINE PLUS,

“Magnesium is an essential mineral for human nutrition”

“Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heart beat steady, and helps bones remain strong. It also helps regulate blood glucose levels and aid in the production of energy and protein”.
