The incredible benefits of magnesium affect every organ of the body, from the heart and muscles to the bones and teeth. The mineral also regulates levels of other minerals and nutrients in the body, activating enzymes and contributing to energy production.

Rich sources of magnesium are found in such foods as green leafy vegetables, whole grains and nuts. Magnesium supplements are also available.

Here are eight benefits of magnesium throughout your body:

1. Bone formation and health can benefit greatly from magnesium, which works with calcium in the bones and vitamin D to strengthen bone density. This is particularly effective in preventing osteoporosis, Healthline reports. The bone-degenerating disease often affects postmenopausal women and increases the risks of fractures to the bones in the elderly.

2. Migraines may be a result of magnesium deficiencies. Research suggests that people who experience these intense headaches have lower levels of the mineral compared to those who don’t suffer from migraines. Migraine patients can check with their doctor about their magnesium levels and any necessary supplements.

3. Good heart health is another benefit of magnesium. Adequate amounts help reduce the risk of atherosclerosis and high blood pressure, according to Medical News Today. People taking high amounts of calcium need sufficient magnesium to avoid heart disease. The Framingham Heart Study found a lower incidence of coronary artery calcification in people with high intakes of magnesium than in others.

4. The risk of diabetes is lowered through magnesium intake. Research suggests magnesium improves insulin sensitivity. The mineral is also involved in carbohydrate and glucose metabolism.

5. Premenstrual syndrome effects are relieved
with adequate amounts of magnesium. It may alleviate bloating, weight gain, leg swelling, breast tenderness, and insomnia.

6. The risk of developing asthma may be associated with low levels of magnesium, says the University of Maryland Medical Center. Studies of children and adults indicate low dietary magnesium intake increases the risk of asthma.

7. Insomnia related to restless leg syndrome could be alleviated from magnesium. The syndrome causes the legs to move because of uncomfortable sensations during rest, lying down, or sleep.

8. Cancer prevention and magnesium-rich foods are being researched. The benefits of magnesium might include lower risks of colorectal cancer, preliminary studies indicate, according to the UMMC.
