Magnesium

Nutrition, Mineral

Magnesium is a mineral that is needed for energy production in the body and the transfer of nerve impulses. Furthermore, magnesium provides strength to the skeleton and ensures a proper functioning of muscles. It also has a relaxing effect on the head.


Source

Magnesium is found in bread, cereals, vegetables, nuts, milk, milk products and meat.


Effect


Shortage

Magnesium is found in almost all foods. Therefore, chances are very small that a shortage will occur. In case of a prolonged magnesium shortage, symptoms such as irritation of the nerves in muscles, heart rhythm disorders, stomach cramps, fatigue, irritability and depression occur.


Overdose

An excess of magnesium occurs only when using tablets containing magnesium, magnesium salts or mineral water containing a lot of magnesium. A surplus of magnesium causes mild diarrhea.
