Hypomagnesemia means the level of magnesium in the bloodstream is too low to meet metabolic needs of the body for this mineral.
Q: What are the metabolic needs of the body for magnesium?
A: The metabolic needs of the body for magnesium are numerous which gives rise to very many distressing symptoms when this mineral is deficient.
A major function of magnesium is to stabilize the structure of an enzyme called adenosine triphosphate (ATP) within cells for the production of energy. In the brain, magnesium plays important roles in all the major metabolisms such as oxidation-reduction and regulation of ions (charged minerals).1
