Magnesium is an essential element for the correct functioning of the nervous and cardiovascular systems. Found in the human body in the form of magnesium ions (positively charged), It is essential for transmembrane and intracellular electrical transmission. A deficiency of magnesium results in cellular disaster.
The vast majority of magnesium is found in muscle tissue ((one quarter) and bone (three-fifths). Less than 1% is found in the blood. It is necessary for the stabilization of membranes, the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and amino acids. It is required for muscle function, nerve function, and even for the formation of teeth and bones.
Magnesium supplementation is one of the most important health actions that you can take. Magnesium affects virtually every bodily system.
Vitamin D 3 (fat-soluble)
Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin and is formed when the skin is exposed to sunshine. Vitamin D is necessary for the absorption of calcium and is therefore essential for the maintenance of healthy bones. Vitamin D is also important for maintaining a healthy immune system. A deficiency leads to Rickets (a softening of the bones of children and sometimes adults, leading to deformities). Vitamin D is now recognized to be important for overall health and not only just bone health. It has been recognized that vitamin D plays an important role in the immune system.
Other functions are to regulate the secretion of insulin by the pancreas, regulate heart and blood pressure, muscle strength, and brain activity. A lack of vitamin D has also been implicated in the mood disturbances of chronic fatigue syndrome and seasonal affective disorder, or SAD. Other problems that low levels of vitamin D are associated with include bone and joint pain, muscle aches, fibromyalgia syndrome, rheumatic disorders as well as osteoarthritis.
