Magnesium affects more than 300 enzymes in the body. It is involved in glucose control, regulating blood pressure, nervous system processes, and muscle function, and is required for energy production. It is also an important structural component of our bones. In fact, 60% of the magnesium in our body is stored in the skeletal system. Magnesium can be found in numerous foods, in especially high quantities in spinach, nuts, and beans. Excessive alcohol intake, diabetes, the use of PPI-drugs and certain stomach disorders can affect absorption of magnesium.
