Maintain normal muscle and nerve function: Magnesium works collectively with calcium to control muscle operation.
Calcium tenses (tightens) the muscles; and magnesium relaxes the muscles. Without enough magnesium the muscle stays rigid.
Regulates blood sugar levels: Magnesium has an important role in carbohydrate metabolism, it may release insulin, the hormone that helps control blood glucose (sugar) levels.
Keeps heart rhythm steady: Magnesium helps the blood flowing freely around body and works to fight blood clotting.
Promoting normal blood pressure: Magnesium protects the internal wall of arteries against the effects of unexpected blood pressure variations.
