BIO-CMPO Basic concepts and physiologic function
Recent studies have shown that magnesium intake is generally below the US RDA/RDI for most adults, and magnesium deficiency is very common among certain subgroups in America. Magnesium is necessary for cardiovascular health, proper neurologic function, and for the function of many enzyme systems, including those which are involved in fatty acid metabolism and liver detoxification.
Calcium is also necessary for proper neurologic function, cardiovascular health, and of course for promotion and maintenance of bone strength. Additionally, calcium and magnesium intake are inversely proportional to the severity of premenstrual syptoms.
Beyond their basic nutritional functions, many vitamins and minerals are being shown to help reduce the risk of chronic illnesses. A recent review article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association recommends that all adults supplement their diet with additional vitamins and minerals--Fairfield KM, Fletcher RH. Vitamins for chronic disease prevention in adults: scientific review. JAMA. 2002 Jun 19;287(23):3116-26 Contents
