Magnesium is... vital in the digestion process
Between the moment food enters your body and the moment it leaves your body, hundreds of chemical reactions take place to ensure vital nutrients are retained and the digestion process takes place smoothly - and magnesium has a huge relevance in this.
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 plays a role.
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.
