Tuesday Tip of the Week!

Did you know that Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body? It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong.

Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis [2-3]. There is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.

Since Magnesium is such an essential mineral, it is important to make sure your body is getting the recommended daily value.
