A lack of magnesium is all too common in today’s society. It is one of the most important minerals for healthy function of muscles, bones, immune and nervous systems, maintaining regular heartbeats, as well as being important in regulating the activity of more than 300 enzymes in the body. It is found inside nearly all tissue cells and organs, with around 50% found in the bone and 1% found in the blood. Magnesium deficiency can contribute to high blood pressure, hyperactivity, heart problems, muscle cramps and other health issues.
Sulphates are the salts of sulphur. Sulphate is essential for many biological processes, helping to flush toxins and helping form proteins. They have a detoxifying effect on the liver and stimulate the function of the gall bladder and thus the digestive function as well. Sulphates can also assist the immune system and fight the effects of aging. Sulphate is found in all foods containing protein such as fish, meat or milk products. The body absorbs sulphates only in very small quantities. However they bind water in the intestine together with magnesium or sodium, stimulate peristalsis and thus digestion.
