Magnesium helps relax the spastic blood vessels that cause pain and numbness of the fingers. Pain, inflammation, muscle spasm, muscle tension, and scarring can all be treated with magnesium. Magnesium reduces lactic acid buildup that can result in post-exercise pain. Serotonin balance is magnesium-dependent. Deficiency of serotonin can result in migraine headaches and depression. Magnesium deficiency contributes to atherosclerotic kidney failure. Magnesium deficiency creates abnormal lipid levels and worsening blood sugar control in kidney transplant patients. It’s important for kidney patients to receive magnesium that is absorbed directly into cells. Magnesium prevents muscle tension that can prevent restful sleep. Also, sleep-regulating melatonin pathway production is disturbed without sufficient magnesium.
Most people who are ‘sick’ are not actually sick, but rather suffering from a lack of oxygen in their body. Scientists say that the air we breathe is supposed to contain about 21% oxygen for top performance, but recent EPA studies have shown that city air can contain as little as 10%! Even if you are in an area that gets enough oxygen, it can still have a hard time getting into the tissues of the body.
