Magnesium plays an essential role in a range of biochemical and physiological processes.

The human body contains about 25 grams of Magnesium from which 50-60% is in the skeleton and 25-30% in muscle. One third of skeletal magnesium is exchangeable and it is this fraction that may serve as a reservoir for maintaining a normal extracellular Magnesium concentration.

  • ATP and ADP complexes of Magnesium participate as the substrate for the phosphate transfer reaction
  • Magnesium is essential for protein synthesis in replicating cells
  • A Principal mineral of bones
  • Is required as cofactor for over 300 enzyme systems
  • Magnesium deficiency has been linked to : -
