Magnesium and Your Digestive Health
The mineral magnesium goes together with potassium because when trying to correct a potassium deficiency you need magnesium for that to happen effectively. These two work together to regulate muscle contraction and regulates nerve impulses.
Magnesium is essential for good digestive health and it’s often recommended for these types of problems and also used in antacid products. Digestive disorders can cause the body to not absorb enough magnesium, and since it’s needed to absorb vitamin C and calcium it’s imperative you make sure you are getting enough.
