Magnesium is the second most abundant element inside our cells and it is crucial to more than 300 enzyme-driven biochemical reactions occurring in the body. It is considered an enzyme co-factors. Enzyme Cofactors are responsible for regulating the functions of enzymes in order to control the rate of reactions within the body. Magnesium is one of the most common co-factors in the body and is crucial for: • Cellular energy • Muscle relaxation • Hormones • Regulation of cholesterol production • Glucose breakdown Cellular energy Magnesium is a required ingredient of the energy-production process that occurs inside our cells. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a coenzyme that is responsible…
