The Next Healing Trend of Magnesium

Magnesium is one of the six vital macro-minerals that are essential for maintaining our health. There are numerous benefits associated with magnesium, which is why it is now being considered as a healing agent. Magnesium compounds are used to make medicines as it supports cellular life. Let’s explore the properties of magnesium, its health benefits, and the reasons why it is used to heal several conditions.

Major Properties of Magnesium
Magnesium is a white metal that is rarely available in its pure state. It is commonly available in the form of compounds and minerals. Inside the human body, this important mineral is necessary for the activation of biochemical and cellular reactions. Here are some of the major properties of magnesium:

Composition Properties
The metal magnesium has 12 as the atomic number. A single atom of magnesium is composed of 12 protons, 12 neutrons, and 12 electrons. The atomic weight is 24.3050. Since there are just two electrons in the valence shell, magnesium is highly reactive. This is why it is impossible to find magnesium independently.

Magnesium in the Body
It is one of the most abundant minerals in the body. It is an intracellular mineral, which means that its effects to the body occurs inside the cell. The blood contains 1 percent of the total magnesium in the body while the rest is inside the bones (including teeth) and as the building block of liver and heart. Magnesium is absorbed by the body in the small intestine. A healthy heart contains a tenfold of magnesium as compared to the blood.

How Healers Use Magnesium
Before moving on to understand how magnesium is used by the healers, it is imperative that we determine the daily requirements of this mineral. Typically, the suggested intake varies between 240 mg to 420 mg for different age groups. Magnesium is lost from the body through the intake of alcohol, coffee, black tea, and pharmaceutical drugs. Only 20 to 50 percent of the magnesium intake is absorbed by our bodies. Low intakes of magnesium are often related to heart diseases, metabolic conditions, osteoporosis, and diabetes. Since magnesium is essential for bone and muscle health, cardiovascular systems, and sleep, healers often suggest increasing the intake of magnesium for the following reasons:

Reducing Stress
Magnesium is a calming agent. It helps in regulating serotonin and melatonin, which improves the sleep quality and mood of the individual.

Treating Acute Eclampsia
Eclampsia is a condition faced by pregnant women where the increased blood pressure poses a threat to the mother and the child. Magnesium is used to treat the acute conditions of eclampsia and myocardial infarction.

Developing Muscle and Bone Strength
People who workout often can take magnesium to cure the soreness of muscles as magnesium help in the growth of the muscles. Additionally, it also helps in regulating calcium inside the bones.

Treating Hypertension and Type 2 Diabetes
Magnesium increases the insulin secretion, which augments the sugar metabolism. It also helps in lowering the blood pressure and reduces the risk of a stroke.
