I read the newspaper that the body needs to supplement micronutrients such as calcium, magnesium in which calcium is needed for bones, so what role does magnesium play in the body, doctor?
Many studies have proven magnesium (Mg) has important roles in the body as follows:
– Join cell structure: Mg binds to nucleic acid, participates in structure of membranes, regulates membrane permeability, helps cell respiration, protein synthesis, participates in energy generation synthesis ATP …
– Activating enzymes: Mg involved in activating about 300 enzymes involved in metabolism of proteins, lipids and carbohydrates.
– Operating physiological activities: Mg calms nerves by fixing them on nerve cells; in the absence of easily stimulated nerve Mg causes seizures; Mg reduces conduction and reduces myocardial stimulation should be used to treat some cardiac neurological disorders; Mg against hypoxia,
protects blood vessel walls, is a platelet stabilizer. Like calcium, magnesium is essential for bone growth, protecting bones against aging. Mg also has the effect of stimulating kidney function, anti-stress … This mineral is added daily through foods and drinks (rice, corn, potatoes, cassava, beans, dried fruits, meat, fish, eggs, milk …)
