Dr Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., Neurosurgeon, says “that every known illness is associated with Magnesium deficiency.” And further mentions “Magnesium deficiency is the most critical mineral required for the electrical stability of every cell in the body. A magnesium deficiency may be responsible for more diseases than any other nutrient.”
It is widely understood that magnesium plays a vital role in maintaining good health. Additional magnesium would be required by persons with conditions that cause urinary loss of magnesium, for example, poorly managed diabetes, alcohol abuse and excessive caffeine consumption. In addition, active people are at risk of developing a magnesium deficiency through excessive loss of fluid by perspiration.
