In this podcast, we’re going to talk about magnesium and calcium. I’m going to explain the interesting effect magnesium has on calcium.
Magnesium is involved in over 350 biochemical reactions. It’s a coenzyme involved in enzyme reactions. It’s also a key electrolyte.
Magnesium is also involved in:
• Muscle relaxation
• Nerve transmission
• Fluid balance
• ATP production
• Bone physiology
• Heart physiology
• Supporting insulin
Magnesium is very important. But, up to 60% of the population has a subclinical magnesium deficiency. Subclinical means that it won’t show up on a blood test, but you’re still deficient. The deficiency is inside of the cell. 98% of your magnesium is inside of the cell, not outside of the cell. So, if you get a blood test and find that your magnesium levels are normal in your blood, it may not really mean anything.
• The RDAs of magnesium for men are 420 milligrams.
• The RDAs of magnesium for women are 320 milligrams.
Good sources of magnesium:
• Pumpkin seeds
• Swiss chard
• Sunflower seeds
• Leafy greens
One of the important things magnesium does is keeping calcium outside of the cell. If there is enough magnesium in the cell, it can prevent calcium from going inside of the cell and creating damage.
