It’s no secret that magnesium is an essential part to our bodily functions. It’s a co-factor for over 300 enzymes that regulate various biochemical reactions.

Without sufficient magnesium in our body, we would not be able to function. Nearly every muscle and every nerve in our body relies on it, so without it, we would have no power over controlling any of our muscles, which includes the most important muscle, our heart.

You can see now how essential magnesium is to our everyday living, but more importantly it’s key to detect whether or not you have magnesium deficiency. Read on to learn about the 12 signs that you’re body is lacking magnesium.
