Magnesium is essential for maintaining good consistent health and plays a key role in everything from exercise performance to heart health and brain function.
Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate diverse biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation.
It is required for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation, and glycolysis, contributes to the structural development of bone and is required for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and the antioxidant glutathione.
Magnesium also plays a role in the active transport of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes, a process that is important to nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction, and normal heart rhythm.
This unassuming compound is truly essential for maintaining our inner health, and well-being and assisting our bodies to work well for us every day.

Before we cover the more physical level of beauty, lets talk about a scientific phenomena that explains the type of radiance that comes from the inside-out. Biophotons.
