“Dr Libby: Magnesium, the magic mineral” – Stuff
As you know here at Oamaru Pharmacy we are huge fans of magnesium for supporting the body.

Libby says

“Magnesium is required 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. It also contributes to the makeup of teeth and bones. Most importantly, it activates enzymes, contributes to energy production and helps regulate calcium levels, as well as copper, zinc, potassium, vitamin D and other important nutrients in the body. It’s also a wonderful mineral for helping us to relax. It can be particularly beneficial at night to assist with muscle relaxation and a good night’s sleep. “

It is a really good read. I suggest you check it out on stuff here..
