Our body works thanks to a synergy of many precious elements, but there are some that are more fundamental than others: magnesium is one of these. Its activity covers so many functions that it is impossible in this context to explain them all, so we will limit ourselves to describing the most important ones.
This mineral is found mainly in the bones, but also in the muscles and to a minimum part in the blood; we consume it mainly with food, in particular through leafy vegetables such as spinach, chard and artichokes, but also dried fruit (walnuts, mandarins, hazelnuts and pistachios), cocoa, legumes, basil, wheat bran, pumpkin seeds, soy flour.
The average daily requirement ranges from 250 to 400 mg per day
Magnesium properties and benefits
Magnesium is essential for a good functioning of the nervous system on which it has a calming effect; this relaxing function is also found at the muscular level, useful in case of cramps, spasms and often also cervical and head pains;
it also regulates the contractility of the heart and promotes the release of oxygen inside it preserving the elasticity of the arteries and helping to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. It also helps keep blood pressure within the right limits.
In fact, it has been found that low levels of magnesium are related to an increase in the risk of hypertension, atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke.
A good level of magnesium in our body also means helping to keep total cholesterol under control, increasing the “good” HDL that has the task of cleaning up blood vessels from deposits that can obstruct them.
It helps to fix calcium in bones and teeth so it can also be considered a good estimate of osteoporosis and caries
