General conclusions

Magnesium ions are essential to all cells in living organisms. For example the plants take needed magnesium by chlorophyll. Many enzymes realize on magnesium ions for their catalytic action especially enzymes join in ATP, DNA and RNA. We use magnesium in our everyday live now but for the first time it is described in the medical literature in 1934. Then we are talking about the magnesium deficiency in human body. Today the daily requirement quantity for the adult person is nearly 300-400 mg. Inadequate magnesium can make different causes of muscle spasms which can provoke many diseases. Acute deficiency is rare, and is more common as a drug side effect (such as chronic alcohol or diuretic use) than from low food intake per se, but it can also occur within people fed intervention for extended periods of time.
The tolerated limit for supplemental magnesium a day is 350 mg (calculated as mg of Mg elemental in the salt). The most common symptom of surplus oral magnesium intake is diarrhea. It's a rare case when adults excrete excess magnesium. But babies aren't able to excrete excess magnesium and that is the reason not to be given much magnesium supplements, except it is necessary.
Magnesium is a mineral that serves many vital purposes in the body. There are more than 300 biochemical processes in the human body that require magnesium. From the heart to the bones, some of the body's most fundamental systems and structures depend on this important mineral. Both day-to-day and long-term health and well being require sufficient intake of magnesium.
Magnesium salts (usually in the form of magnesium sulfate or chloride when given parenterally) are used therapeutically for a number of medical conditions. For example Epsom salts is treated with supplemental magnesium ion. Magnesium is absorbed by human body very well by magnesium salt like chloride or citrate, too. Magnesium absorption from the insoluble oxide and hydroxide salts is erratic and of poorer efficiency, since it depends on the neutralization and solution of the salt by the acid of the stomach.

Why using magnesium in health?

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human's body and is essential to good health. In our bone we have around 50% of total body magnesium but in our blood we have only 1% of magnesium. It's a small part but very important for people's health. Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body.

Magnesium in medicine

In general magnesium is used in engineering and in health, especially in medicine. Magnesium found an exceptional place in curing various diseases and is thus included into many medicines for its exceptional properties. It's the fourth most abundant part from human's body. Nearly 50 percent of the body's magnesium is contained within its cells.
