Magnesium is an essential mineral that is used throughout the body, affecting blood vessels,
blood clotting, the transmission of impulses between nerve cells, and normal muscle activity.
It plays a very important role in heart health and energy metabolism. In fact, a
magnesium deficiency can lead to muscle weakness and chronic fatigue and may promote
atherosclerosis (blocked arteries), cause hypertension (high blood pressure), trigger
arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat), and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
