The Importance of Magnesium

Vitamins and minerals are important to our nutrition and overall health. Most of us take dietary supplements each day, and provide daily supplements to our children, in order to ensure our bodies are being provided the nutrients we require. Since pets are members of the family for so many of us, why wouldn’t we take steps to ensure that they get the nutrition they need to be happy and healthy too?

One of the most important minerals – for both people and animals – is magnesium. Nutritional magnesium plays a significant part in over 300 enzymatic reactions within the body. It is deeply involved in the creation and maintenance of bones, cells, tissues, and physiological processes, and is vital to:

  • Energy production
  • Oxygen uptake
  • Electrolyte balance
  • Metabolism of food & glucose
  • Central nervous system function
  • Regulation of hormones
  • Muscular function and activity
  • Synthesis of proteins & fatty acids

Unfortunately, today’s agricultural practices have drained our soils of many nutrients our pets require. Further nutrient loss is an unintended side effect of processing pet food from its natural form.

Common signs of magnesium deficiency include:

  • Anxiety and nervousness
  • Irritability & aggression
  • Lack of stamina
  • Insulin resistance
  • Metabolic disorders & hormone imbalance
  • Immune suppression
  • Inflammation & swelling
  • Muscle cramps, spasms, & twitching
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Impaired concentration
  • Loss of appetite
  • Abnormal adrenaline secretion
  • Skin disorders
  • Arthritis
  • Heart arrhythmia
