Magnesium deficiency is often misdiagnosed because it does not show upin blood tests – only 1% of the body’s magnesium is stored in the blood.
The body cannot use vitamin D in a magnesium deficient body. Magnesium facilitates the release of calcium from the bones in the presence of adequate amounts of vitamin D and parathormone. Standard textbooks state that the principal function of vitamin D is to promote calcium absorption in the gut and calcium transfer across cell membranes, thus contributing to strong bones and a calm, contented nervous system. It is also well recognized that vitamin D aids in the absorption of magnesium, iron and zinc, as well as calcium.
Magnesium is at the center of life’s ability to absorb light and change its electromagnetic energy into organic chemical energy. Cancer patients need light and they need magnesium.
