Importance of Magnesium.

A lot of ppl don't know that magnesium is actually a really important nutrient that our body needs a lot of. Magnesium is needed for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body.

A lack of magnesium has actually been related with serious migraines, osteoporosis, arthritis, diabetes, constipation and a lot more!

While it is commonly understood that the body needs calcium to build bones, but bones are a complex matrix of many different minerals and if all the required minerals are not present then strong bones cannot be built. As farm soil contains less and less of the required nutrient, dairy products now may contain calcium, but so little magnesium or other nutrients, this is one of the reason why osteoporosis is more evident in cow's milk drinking countries. 2ndly, dairy protein is very acidic and it necessitates the body to continually pulling more calcium from the bones to buffer this acidity, causing the bone to have even less nutrients to re-built or built new.

Magnesium is a precursor to an important substance in the body called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is necessary for connective tissue formation and helps maintain healthy joints, prevent skin wrinkles, prevent hernias and promote the healing of wounds and surgical incisions.

I've found this site that has liquid magnesium supplement, simply becoz liquid is simple to take and it is absorbed more quickly. :)
