Maintains Healthy Brain Function Magnesium is a key component in transmitting signals between the body and brain. It is the gatekeeper of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. They are found on nerve cells. They aid in brain development learning, memory and development. For healthy adult, magnesium is found in the NMDA receptors, which prevent them from being activated by weak signals which could trigger nerve cells in a way that is not necessary. If the magnesium level is low less NMDA receptors can be blocked. This means that they are more susceptible to being stimulated more frequently than is necessary. The overstimulation process can cause nerve cell death and cause brain damage if severe deficiency. Keep your brain healthy and use Elemental Relief products.
Maintains a Healthy Heartbeat Magnesium is essential to maintain the heartbeat of a healthy person. It naturally battles calcium, which is vital for the production of heart contractions. When calcium is absorbed by the heart muscle cells it causes the muscles to contract. Magnesium counteracts this, aiding the cells to relax and required for proper heart health. This flow of magnesium and calcium across the heart cells ensures an optimal heartbeat. If the levels of magnesium are lower, it could stimulate your heart muscle cells too much. A common sign of this is an abnormal and/or fast heartbeat that could be life-threatening. In addition The sodium-potassium pump an enzyme responsible for generating electrical impulses, needs magnesium to function properly. Certain electrical impulses can affect your heartbeat Topical Magnesium offers the benefits of oral supplements without the associated GI distress.
Helps Regulate Muscle Contractions Magnesium can also play a part in the regulation of muscles contractions. Like the heart area, magnesium functions as a calcium blocker that helps muscles relax. In the muscles in your muscles, calcium binds with proteins like troponin C and myosin. This alters the form of these proteins and results in the contraction Magnesium and calcium compete for the same binding points to ease your muscles. If your body does not have enough magnesium to match calcium in your body, the muscles might over contract, causing spasms or cramps. Because of this, magnesium is frequently suggested to treat cramps in the muscles.
Elemental Relief products are high in Magnesium and offer exceptional muscle cramp relief and prevention if used prior to bed or activities that normally cause cramping.

In one study who took 450 mg magnesium daily noticed a decrease in blood pressures of systolic (upper) as well as diastolic (lower) blood pressure levels to 20.4 and 8.7 respectively. A review of 34 studies discovered that a median dosage that was 368 mg magnesium decreased both diastolic as well as systolic blood pressure in healthy adults as well as those suffering from high blood pressure.
