Element #12 on the Periodic Table, Magnesium (Mg) is an alkaline, silvery-white metal with a hexagonal closely-packed crystalline structure. In its pure elemental state, Magnesium is easily ignited and burns with an intense, quick heat and brilliant white flame. An extremely essential element for all plant and animal life, Magnesium ions combine with Phosphates and Calcium ions on the cellular level to produce light, heat and energy in the form of ATP (Adenisone Triphospate), and ADP (Adenisone Diphospate) molecules. It is an essential nutrient in the cellular synthesis of proteins and carbohydrates and the subsequent production of lean muscle tissue. Deficiencies of Magnesium produce symptoms of frequent migraine headaches, muscle cramping and constipation.Magnesium helps in the formation and function of muscle tissue. Each molecule of muscle protein (myosin) has an atom of magnesium in its chemical structure. This protein called myosin is critical in the healthy functioning of the most vital muscle in the human body - the heart - thus magnesium may well be called the Heart Mineral. Readily bio-available magnesium as provided by Mother Earth Minerals is essential in keeping the heart muscle healthy and happy. Magnesium deficiency has been linked to potentially life-threatening heart arrhythmias and palpitations. Heart disease is still the #1 killer in America, and is possibly linked to magnesium-deficient diets and lifestyle.About Angstrom Minerals
In order for a mineral to be assimilated correctly on the cellular level, it must be in a form no larger than an angstrom in size. These angstrom-sized particles should also be completely water soluble, which allows the mineral to be quickly 100% absorbed in either the mouth (sublingually) or in the upper stomach where lower stomach acids will not destroy them. It takes 10,000 angstrom-sized particles lined up on a horizontal plane to cross the distance equal to one micron. Please note that these are not colloidal minerals. Colloidal may help to a certain degree, but may accumulate in the various tissues of the body causing toxicity. Angstrom sized particles of minerals are the size in which plants, fruits and vegetables deliver minerals to humans.
Most minerals should be taken early in the day except for Gold, Calcium, Copper, and at times, Chromium. Gold will promote a restful sleep. Platinum, Potassium, Selenium, and Mineral of Life should be taken in the morning as they have a tendency to stimulate the system.
