Magnesium is needed to produce energy, for glycolysis and for oxidative phosphorylation. It contributes to the structural development of bones and it is necessary for the construction of DNA, RNA and the antioxidant glutathione. It also plays an important role on the active transportation of calcium and potassium ions along the cell membranes, a procedure that is very important for nervous impulse, muscle contraction and normal heart functioning.

The body uses magnesium for more than 300 biochemical reactions, including the function of muscles and nerves, the stability of the cardiac function and bone health. Wheat bran has high quantity of magnesium per portion (89mg), but you must consume unprocessed granules in order to have its positive effects. Other magnesium sources are almonds, cashews and green vegetables, like spinach.
