Magnesium is an essential element that the human body needs to function properly. It plays a crucial part in relaxing muscles and helping them to function. 

While magnesium is a highly popular supplement favored especially by athletes, most people know surprisingly little about it. 

In this blog post we want to introduce some surprising facts and benefits of magnesium that you've probably not heard of yet. 

1. Magnesium is involved in 300+ chemical reactions in the body 

Most people think of magnesium only in the context of muscle and nerve function. The truth ist that magnesium is involved in over 300 chemical reactions in the body. In fact, every cell of the body contains it. 

Magnesium is involved in: 

  • Energy creation 
  • Gene maintenance 
  • Muscle movements 
  • Protein formation 
  • Maintaining normal nerve function 

Magnesium also supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heartbeat steady, and helps adjust blood glucose levels. Quite an impressive list, isn't it?

2. Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body

Oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus...Sounds like a chemical cocktail but is actually a list of the elements our body is made of. 

The five major minerals in the human body are calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, and magnesium, magnesium being the fourth most abundant mineral. 

3. Magnesium forms in large stars as a result of the fusion of helium with neon

Magnesium is produced in the interior of massive stars. As it turns out the claim that our body is made out of stardust is not far fetched at all! 

Planetary scientist and stardust expert Dr Ashley King once said in an interview: “It is totally 100% true: nearly all the elements in the human body were made in a star and many have come through several supernovas.”

4. Magnesium makes up 2% of the Earth's crust

Magnesium is a solid grey metal.While it makes up 2% of the Earth's crust you will probably never find magnesium in its raw form in nature. Magnesium occurs naturally only in combination with other elements, such as carbon, calcium and oxygen. 

The first person to isolate the element was Cornish chemist Sir Humphry Davy using a mixture of magnesia and mercuric oxide via electrolysis in 1808. 

5. Different forms of Magnesium have different properties 

So what is the difference between different types of magnesium? 

Let's take a look at our products. 

Our Magnesium uses a bioavailable form of magnesium - Magnesium Citrate , with more superior absorption in the body than other forms of magnesium. 

Whether you hope to support normal muscle function , nervous function or reduce general tiredness and fatigue - our Magnesium Citrate is a great choice! 

Some people also believe that magnesium citrate is the best option if you want to support your digestion. 

Our Premium Fullnesium Complex contains five different types of Magnesium, each with its own unique properties and functions. 

These include Magnesium Bisglycinate, Magnesium Oxide, Magnesium Citrate, Magnesium Taurate, and Magnesium Malate.

  • The first form of magnesium in this blend is magnesium citrate. Magnesium citrate has the highest bioavailability of all magnesium salts. 
  • Magnesium Bisglycinate has a calming effect. It can be used for relaxation, increased sleep quality, and stress relief. 
  • Magnesium Oxide is generally used to alleviate heartburn and constipation. 
  • Research suggests that Magnesium malate is very well absorbed in your digestive tract, making it a great option for replenishing your magnesium level. 
  • Then last but not least we have Magnesium Taurate which promotes a relaxed state of mind and supports healthy stress levels.

6. Magnesium produces a bright white light when burned

Fireworks are made with a number of metals. Each element has unique properties and produces different types of colours and flames. When magnesium is burned it produces a very bright light, making it ideal for adding brilliance of a firework.

7. Food sources rich in magnesium include cocoa, cereals and vegetables

Magnesium can be found in a number of foods. Here are some magnesium-rich foods that are tasty and healthy. Here is a list of foods that are rich in magnesium.

provides 16% of the RDI for magnesium
