Dr. Uzzi Reiss – Natural Hormone Balance
The following is quoted from the book, Natural Hormone Balance by Uzzi Reiss, M.D./O.B. GYN, published by Pocket Books Copyright 2001 regarding MAGNESIUM deficiencies. Dr. Reiss has a highly successful Beverly Hills practice and prescribes a private label Liquid Ionic Magnesium Concentrate for his patients.
“Yes, we all need calcium for healthy bones, but you won’t achieve good bone health without adequate magnesium. Magnesium increases bone elasticity. A deficiency can contribute to osteoporosis. Moreover, magnesium is often the nutritional missing link to menstrual wellness. Some studies have linked PMS to magnesium deficiency alone, on in combination with excess calcium.
The mineral is a partner in more than three hundred enzymatic reactions in the body, including the generation of cellular energy and muscle relaxation, and the synthesis of fat, protein, and nucleic acids. The obsession with calcium in our society appears to be a major contributor to magnesium depletion. High intake of calcium interferes with magnesium absorption. In other words it makes an already existing deficiency worse. So we need to hear more than just the calcium message. We need to start hearing the magnesium message.”
Magnesium and Loose Stools
Why do people suffer from loose stools and even diarrhoea when taking high quantities of magnesium? This occurs as non digested magnesium acts as a laxative because it has not been converted to ionic form before it enters the digestive system.
Diabetes: Insulin is a hormone, which helps regulate glucose metabolism. Magnesium has been found to improve insulin’s response to dietary sugar and improve the action of insulin in regulating blood sugar.
Low Energy and Fatigue: Source: USDA / Agricultural Research Service Date: 2004. Most people think of calcium and phosphorus as the most important dietary components for bone health. But magnesium also plays an important role. It is involved in hundreds of biochemical reactions, many of which help keep not only bones strong, but the heart rhythm healthy and the nervous system functioning smoothly.
Heavy Metal Poisoning
Magnesium protects the cell from aluminium, mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium and nickel. Evidence is mounting that low levels of magnesium contribute to the heavy metal deposition in the brain that precedes Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s. It is probable that low total body magnesium contributes to heavy metal toxicity in children and is a participant in the etiology of learning disorders.
