Magnesium and Potassium:never without!

Diet tips
Magnesio e Potassio: mai senza!
The importance of vitamins and mineral salts has been examined not only on this site but in general by studies and researches all over the world. Today we face the body's need to obtain the right dose of two essential minerals for survival every day:l magnesium chemical symbol Mg and potassium chemical symbol K.o K).

Properties and benefits

We often hear them mentioned in advertisements in the face of the great summer heat, but perhaps not everyone knows that even with the cold our body needs a high amount of these substances. They are the two minerals that are most abundant within our cells, and they go hand in hand in importance and function. In fact, potassium can only pass through the cells via the ION PUMP, which is a delicate mechanism that is supported by magnesium. The latter regulates the production of cellular energy, as well as the metabolism of potassium, calcium, zinc, vitamin C and other substances within the body. Specifically, here are the activities that theil magnesium carries out within our body:
  • It reduces blood pressure by dilating blood vessels
  • It reduces sleep disturbances and fatigue in general
  • It stimulates circulation by providing valuable support to the heart
  • Relieve stress
  • It acts on muscle contractility
  • Being a coenzyme of at least 300 enzymes, it plays a fundamental role in regulating the internal pH acidity basicitytà)
For its part, thepotassium is not far behind. In fact it is also called the heart mineral, because it protects the heart system. Here are some of the known benefits of this mineral:
  • Reduces blood pressure
  • Regulate your heart rate
  • Enhance moode
  • Reduces the formation of thrombus and plaques
  • Regulate energy production
  • According to some studies, the chance of developing kidney stones decreases

Therapeutic indications, contraindications and overdose

A healthy and balanced diet should in itself contribute with the necessary dose of magnesium and potassium for the proper functioning of all vital and non-vital organs. But excessive sweating, a restrictive diet, a particularly intense sporting activity are all situations that may require an integration of these minerals, in the form of both regenerating drinks and herbal teas or pills. However, it is also necessary to know the side effects. Magnesium, for example, is not recommended in the case of kidney failure, while potassium in cases of mineral retention, liver failure and constipation. An overdose of magnesium can cause nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain and mental confusion. A supplement consisting solely of magnesium could reduce the concentration of potassium and sodium within the body. An excess of potassium could lead to even dangerous arrhythmias and muscle weakness.olare. For those who want to know more about the ION PUMP: It is a transport system of ions through channels formed by membranes that allow elements such as potassium to enter and exit the cells. Each membrane, in fact, has a specific permeability and the difference in concentration between cations and anions of the intra and extra cellular environments form what is called membrane potential, or action potential.   Source: http://www.treccani.it/encyclopedia/pompa-ionica_Dtionary-di-Medicina/)/
