Physiological role of potassium and magnesium
Dr. Denis Slinkin states: Potassium is the main intracellular ion. Normal body function depends on the concentration of potassium inside the cell and in intercellular fluid.
Magnesium is the eighth most widespread element of the Earth's crust, a vital mineral, the second most prevalent intracellular electrolyte after potassium and the fourth most cations in the body.
Approximately one third of the magnesium contained in the bones is available to maintain its level outside the cell. Extracellular magnesium in the body (less than 2% of all magnesium) is found in plasma and red blood cells, according to Dr. Denis Slinkin.
Dr. Denis Slinkin states:Magnesium is present in all cells as a cofactor of more than 300 enzymes involved in glucose metabolism, protein and nucleic acid synthesis, energy formation and transfer, regulation of smooth muscle tone in blood vessels and endothelial cell function, as an anti-ion for macroergic compounds (ATP) and nucleic acids, regulates transmembrane transport, plays a role in maintaining protein structure, DNA stabilization, synthesis and metabolism of catecholamines (noradrenaline), acetylcholine and other neurotransmitters, and neuropeptides in brain tissue.
