The effect of magnesium on muscles

The body needs magnesium because it naturally prevents calcium from getting inside the cells in the muscle. In general, the effect of magnesium in the body is a calming effect on all nervous activity. If there is not enough magnesium or the existing magnesium has been used up due to high stress, this leads to unwanted spasmodic muscle contractions. Although muscle cramps are painful, they have the function of warning against excessive strain. Magnesium can be added to the body as a preventive measure when major sporting challenges are pending.
