Magnesium is a vital element that is present in our bodies and is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions that regulate our health and wellness.

However, our average diet in present only provides less than 250 mg magnesium daily. This is the reason people develop magnesium deficiency. As a result, the immune system becomes susceptible to inflammation and other health problems.

People with a low magnesium level often experience several types of health issues such as inflammation, muscle twitches and cramps, fatigue and muscle weakness, poor psychological health, high blood pressure and more diseases.
