Magnesium is involved in 300 enzymatic steps in which components of food are metabolized and new products are formed.
Magnesium deficiency reportedly produces hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia, and dyslipoproteinemia by increasing VLDL and low density lipoprotein, and decreasing high density lipoprotein cholesterol. Furthermore, clinical deficiency of magnesium can result in “depressed tendon reflexes, muscle fasciculations, tremor, muscle spasm, personality changes, anorexia, nausea, and vomiting”.
It has been claimed that, “The alarming increase in sudden death from ischemic heart disease, and the increasing number of young men who develop myocardial infarctions and cardiac arrhythmias or arrests in the past half century may be related in part to magnesium insufficiency”.
