Factors requiring a largerdose of magnesium

June 19, 2020Health Tips

Magnesium (Mg) is a mineral that acts as a cofactor in more than 300 enzymatic reactions inside the body. Its functions include:

A balanced and varied diet should be sufficient for everyday needs, however, a magnesium deficit is a frequent occurrence.

According to Dr. Hans Seyle, stress is one of the body’s nonspecific responses to all kinds of demands placed on it. In a stressful situation, the suprarenal (also known as adrenal) glands release catecholamines (adrenaline) causing calcium to enter the cells and magnesium to leave them. This results in a deficit.

What factors require a larger dose of magnesium?

The cardiovascular system is a major target for magnesium, in terms of both deficit and excess.

Which foods provide magnesium?

Magnesium is found in wholegrain products such as wheat and its derivatives. Other products rich in magnesium include spinach, quinoa, almonds, peanuts, dark chocolate, tuna and mackerel.
