Magnesium deficiency does not only make you ill, but fatter too, because the mineral plays a key role in the metabolism of fat, in addition to other metabolic reactions. The mineral is not only responsible for strong bones and firm muscles, but is a real fat burner as well. Additionally, it prevents water retention and aids digestion. Since only a sufficient supply of magnesium ensures optimal metabolism of fats, and the body cannot produce the mineral itself, it must be absorbed through the diet, about 400 mg daily. In addition to the significant contribution to metabolic processes and the stabilization of cell walls and proteins, magnesium is also needed for the conversion of high-energy substances such as glucose magnesium. Without magnesium, no energy can be provided in the body. Also in the transmission of stimuli between nerves and muscles, a smooth interaction is ensured only by magnesium. Magnesium is also essential for strength in teeth and bones. Even in old age, a sufficient supply of magnesium protects both the bones and the cardiovascular system.
