Magnesium deficiencies are common among Americans and the effects are far-reaching.

Magnesium benefits your health in ways you may not expect, so if you are deficient, it may be worth supplementing.

According to Organic Facts, magnesium is responsible for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, and most magnesium in the body is stored in the bones. This can make it difficult to test for magnesium deficiency.
