Magnesium is... essential for digestion

Updated: Feb 9


From the moment food enters and leaves your body, hundreds of chemical reactions take place to ensure vital nutrients are retained and the digestion process takes place smoothly. ⁠

Magnesium plays a huge role in this process- from helping produce the enzymes in your saliva and intestines, to ensuring the actual mechanics (muscle contractions pushing the food through your digestive system) are working properly.⁠

Magnesium is further required to make the hormone that triggers stomach acid production, a lack of which can lead to growth of bad bacteria in the gut and as a knock on effect acid reflux - also known as heart burn. ⁠
