Magnesium is a mineral that is sorely missing from the Irish diet. Not only are our soils depleted of this vital nutrient but the foods that are rich sources are not consumed often enough to provide an adequate dose.
On top of this, magnesium is depleted with stress, intense exercise, caffeine, certain medication and alcohol. Every single cell in the human body demands adequate magnesium to function, it's considered to be one of the body's most important nutrients.
Magnesium participates in over 300 vital processes in the human body. These processes include: the production and storage of energy, the formation of the nerve signal and the production of proteins. Magnesium is required for optimal bone health and plays a role in muscle function.
