The brain and the heart under normal circumstances have higher levels of magnesium than other parts of the body, relative to their size. So it makes sense that some of the early manifestations of low magnesium would be manifested in these areas first. The bodily systems impacted the most by magnesium deficiency include: the...

Magnesium and Muscle

Magnesium is incredibly important for muscles. Of the total magnesium found in the human body, about 60% is located in the skeletal structure.
