In this video, Dr. Berg talks about magnesium. It is a co-factor or a helper element involved in the activation of a certain enzymes, like the mitochondria that has to do with producing energy and it is the combination of fuel and oxygen. The sparkplug that activates the enzyme that ignites the combination of fuel and oxygen is magnesium and vitamin B1(thiamine). Not enough magnesium could cause low energy, fatigue and a lot of problems. He also talks about insulin resistance and how this condition could also cause magnesium deficiency.
Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency
• Inability to Relax (Muscle, Nerve, Heart)
• Cramps in Calves/Spasm/Tight
• Atrial fibrillation – Part of the heart is not in rhythm and is quivering
• Constipation – the whole colon becomes very tight that could cause bloating and constipation
• High Blood Pressure
• Heart Rhythm problems and Palpitations
• Chronic Back Pain
• Improve and help insulin resistance – by increasing the sensitivity of insulin and make insulin work better.
• Helps potassium absorption
Source of Magnesium:
• Foods that are high in chlorophyll – Leafy greens, Nuts, Seeds
Hey guys! Today we’re gonna talk about magnesium. A very interesting mineral, there’s a lot to know about it. I’m just gonna take from the top. Magnesium is a co-factor. What’s a co-factor? It’s a helper element involve in the activation of certain enzymes. There’s actually 300 enzymes that magnesium is involved with and the one that i’m going to talk about is involved in the mitochondria and it has to do with producing energy without getting to technical, that’s called the Krebs cycle. Maybe you took biology in high school and you learn about the Krebs cycle, very very simple it’s a combination of fuel or glucose. If you’re gonna use glucose or there’s other fuels too plus oxygen. So the biochemistry might appear to be very complex but if you think about a carburetor. What is a carburetor? it’s basically a device in your car or your lawnmower that is mixing a drop of fuel with oxygen in the right ratios to then ignite through a little spark plug to produce energy. Well you have the same thing happening in the mitochondria but the spark plug that activates the enzyme that ignites this combination of fuel and oxygen is magnesium and vitamin B1. I mean there is other nutrients as well but those two are the big ones. If you don’t have enough magnesium in your body, you’re gonna suffer from low energy, you’re gonna have fatigue, there’s other things too that you might experience, inability to relax. So magnesium helps muscles relax, calms down nerves, slows the rate of nerve impulses and it’s really important in heart physiology. If you don’t have enough magnesium, you get cramps in the calves, you get spasms, your muscles become very very tight, you might even develop something called atrial fibrillation. Now that could also be a potassium mineral another similar mineral that has similar function. But atrial fibrillation is part of the heart fibrillating.
