If other healing methods aren’t working that should be working, it means you are low in magnesium, because without it your body can’t be healthy. It’s so important. Magnesium stops cell calcification and increases cell flexibility, dramatically increases life span, athletic performance and helps prevent heart attacks, cancer, diabetes or stroke, dilates blood vessels throughout the body, lowers blood pressure (a natural calcium channel blocker), increases cellular ATP production (Adenosine triphosphate-natures universal energy store) using phosphates for glucose as energy, helps relieve cramps, helps reverse insulin resistance, Magnesium is critical mineral for osteoporosis, skeletal structure and teeth, necessary for good nerve and muscle function, kidney health and restful sleep. Counteracts stress, irregular heartbeat, emotional instability and depression. Calms hyperactive children. Helps alcoholism, diabetes and asthma. Deficiency means muscle spasms, cramps, stomach upsets, sometimes fibromyalgia. Magnesium stimulates over 325 enzyme reactions and processes.
In hospitals when someone has a heart attack or stroke, the first thing they do is shoot them up with a form of magnesium. As a matter of fact, it’s hard to get heart attacks, cancer, diabetes or stroke if your magnesium levels are topped off. But almost everyone’s is too low. There just isn’t enough magnesium in our foods or soil anymore, even organic foods. As we age, magnesium levels drop so aging sets in, so we have to supplement. The more we take regularly, the more problems go away. It has a lot to do with the blood/brain barrier too, so Parkinsons, neurosis, irritability, inability to sleep are all signs. It’s great for sports, helps get rid of muscle soreness fast.
Magnesium naturally increases DHEA levels, which is the true “get younger” hormone, the master hormone in the body which can be broken down into other hormones.

Where there is a lack of magnesium, there is also a higher potential for tooth decay, so as a means of controlling dental problems, magnesium is essential. Alcohol lowers magnesium levels. Magnesium also improves the pumping of the heart by increasing coronary blood flow. By displacing calcium in the arterial plaque magnesium softens the plaque making it easier for removal by the body.You need magnesium! Magnesium malate is the most absorbable form available.
