Did you Know? Surprising, Little-Known Facts About Magnesium

Magnesium in food

Magnesium is an essential nutrient for life. It’s the ninth-most abundant element in the universe, the eighth-most abundant element in Earth’s crust and the third-most prevalent dissolved mineral in seawater. It was discovered in 1755 outside of a Greek city named Magnesia, but for years before it was thought to be the same element as calcium.

Magnesium has an extreme boiling point of 1,202°F and a melting point of 1,994°F. When set on fire, it can burn in oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and water, making it a difficult fire to put out. A common wood-burning fire could be put out by smothering (producing a CO2 environment) or dousing with water, but not with magnesium.

More than 600 biochemical pathways in the human body require magnesium for proper function. Without it our bodies wouldn’t produce sufficient energy, our muscles couldn’t contract and work properly, and vital hormones would be reduced. While about half of the magnesium in your body is stored in bones and teeth, the cells of a healthy heart can have about 10 times the magnesium compared to your blood. It’s no surprise that more than 50% of Intensive Care Unit patients have a magnesium deficiency.

Certified Prevegenics Label

Chlorophyll, the molecule in plants that allows them to photosynthesize, contains magnesium at its center, making it necessary for plant life. When plants are deficient, they grow poorly, are stunted, and produce a low yield that is no doubt also low in nutrients. But with the help of application of fertilizer at plant, Prevegenics Elite Magnesium foliar fertilizer allows farmers to easily control the magnesium levels in their plants during the varying growth stages. When plants have the exact nutrients they need, the plant can grow strong, produce a large yield, and provide the proper nutrients to its fruits or vegetables. Certified Prevegenics produce the best fertilizer for plant growth and has the optimal nutrition you are looking for.
