Magnesium – Ultimate Energy Mineral (Research)

Magnesium - ultimate energy mineralMagnesium is the ultimate energy mineral which keeps us alive. It is needed in the energy production by ATP – the energy molecule of every cell. It takes part in the production of energy-rich bonds and a release of energy within the cell, from ATP – the “energy” molecule of each cell. If ATP is not bound by magnesium, then the cell dies.

Researchers with the USDA Agricultural Research Service recruited 10 postmenopausal women to participate in a three-phase diet and exercise study. During phase one (35 days), the women followed a controlled diet that delivered an adequate amount of magnesium. (The current Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for women is 320 mg daily. For men; 420 mg daily.)

In the second phase (93 days), each subject consumed a diet that contained less than half the RDA for magnesium. In the final phase (49 days) the subjects returned to a diet with adequate magnesium. At the end of each phase, subjects took exercise tests, as well as physiological and biochemical tests.

Results showed that when magnesium intake was low, exercise increased heart rate and required more oxygen compared to exercising when magnesium intake was adequate. Also, when magnesium levels in muscles were low, more energy was required and subjects tired more easily compared to subjects with adequate magnesium levels.

Transdermal magnesium therapy is the quickest and most efficient way to raise magnesium levels in the body to an optimal level. It is also most practical, since it can be administered as a magnesium oil spray, massage, bath, foot bath, compress, body wrap.
