What is magnesium?
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for the body.
It is mainly stored in the bones, teeth and muscles.
This trace element plays a role in over 400 metabolic reactions.
It is not synthesized by the body: we need to obtain it from our diet.
Both adults and children need some magnesium.
It is required for :
- The nervous system.
