Your body stores magnesium in your bones, tissues and organs. Only 1 percent is found in your blood, but it is critical that the blood level remains constant. Magnesium plays a role in over 300 biochemical processes including blood pressure control, heart rhythm, muscle and nerve function, energy metabolism, protein synthesis, blood sugar regulation and cell growth and repair.
Clearly, magnesium is a vital mineral that must be consumed regularly. Punta Gorda XO healthy chocolate products, made from cold-processed magnesium-rich cacao, can help Port Charlotte people make sure they get enough of this miracle mineral.
Some Punta Gorda people may require extra magnesium.
Many common medicines prescribed by SW Florida doctors can cause a magnesium deficiency because they either limit absorption or trigger magnesium loss. Diuretics, antibiotics, and cancer medications (anti-neoplastic) can necessitate magnesium supplementation. North Port diabetics with hyperglycemia may be at risk for magnesium deficiency. Crohn’s disease, gluten sensitivity, and other intestinal disorders can cause deficiencies. As with many other nutritional deficiencies, Punta Gorda seniors are at a greater risk.
