Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. Approximately 50 percent of total body magnesium is found in bone. The other half is found predominantly inside cells of body tissues and organs, with only 1 percent found in the blood. Magnesium is important for sustaining healthy blood vessels, producing energy, and maintaining healthy nerve and muscle function.
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
Magnesium also shows promise in supporting healthy blood pressure within normal ranges and healthy cardiovascular function. Dietary magnesium is absorbed in the small intestines; excretion takes place through the kidneys.
Signs of magnesium deficiency include hypomagnesemia and eventually hypocalcemia, despite adequate dietary calcium. As magnesium depletion progresses, parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion diminishes. Along with hypomagnesemia, signs of severe magnesium deficiency include hypocalcemia, low serum hypokalemia, retention of sodium, low circulating levels of PTH, neurological and muscular symptoms (tremor, muscle spasms, tetany), loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and personality changes.

The following conditions increase the risk of magnesium deficiency:
 Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, such as prolonged diarrhea, Crohn’s disease, malabsorption syndromes, etc.
 Diabetes mellitus and long-term use of certain diuretics.9
 Chronic alcoholism.
 Aging: several studies have found elderly people have relatively low dietary intakes of magnesium.

Possibly the most recognized effects come in the cardiovascular system. Magnesium administration is helpful for supporting and promoting healthy electrical activity in the heart, related to healthy heartbeat.
Magnesium supplementation also helps promote healthy heart function in individuals with suboptimal heart function.
Likewise, magnesium supplementation helps reduce symptoms of mitral valve prolapse in people with low serum magnesium levels.
Evidence shows increasing dietary magnesium intake may help promote healthy arterial flow to the brain, and may even have accompanying neuroprotective effects.
Other evidence suggests supplementing with 600 to 1,000 mg/d of magnesium can promote healthy blood pressure within normal ranges. In addition, magnesium supplementation supports healthy cholesterol levels within normal ranges.
Magnesium also exerts its influence on the endocrine system. Higher dietary magnesium intake is associated with healthy insulin levels and a reduced risk of developing high blood glucose levels.
According to one analysis of studies, an increase of 100 mg/d in dietary magnesium is associated with a 15-percent risk reduction for developing high blood glucose.
Low levels of magnesium occur in 25 percent to 38 percent of people who already have high blood glucose.

Higher magnesium intake from diet and supplements is associated with a 27-percent lower risk of developing suboptimal insulin function in healthy women,27 and a 31-percent lower risk in healthy young adults.
Additional epidemiological research suggests people with low serum magnesium levels are six to seven times more likely to experience suboptimal insulin function than people with normal magnesium levels.

Women may realize special benefits from magnesium, as there is preliminary evidence that magnesium might prevent bone loss in postmenopausal osteoporosis.
In another study of postmenopausal women who were also taking estrogen, 600 mg/d of magnesium plus 500 mg/d of calcium and a multivitamin supplement increased bone mass better than estrogen alone.
Also, research indicates magnesium supplementation might help reduce pregnancy-related leg cramps. Further, magnesium supplementation seems to relieve premenstrual symptoms, including mood changes and fluid retention in some women.
Likewise, taking magnesium also seems to prevent premenstrual migraine.

Among its other effects:
 GI system: Taking magnesium orally is helpful as a laxative for constipation, and as an antacid to reduces symptoms of gastric hyperacidity.
 Respiratory health: Magnesium administration helps promote healthy function of the bronchial tubes, in turn supporting normal respiratory function in individuals with suboptimal respiratory function.
 Pain: When given in doses of 500 to 1,000 mg, magnesium administration has been shown to help relieve certain types of nerve pain for up to four hours.  Magnesium supplementation has also been shown to reduce the frequency and severity of certain types of chronic headaches.
 Aural health: Supplementation with magnesium has been shown to prevent hearing loss in individuals exposed to loud noise.
 Chronic fatigue: Magnesium administration may improve symptoms in individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome
