Magnesium is a mineral that plays a pivotal role by assisting in energy production, muscle contraction, nerve function, and the maintenance of strong bones. It comes into the body through the diet and is absorbed by the small intestine and colon, after which it gets stored in the bones, cells, and tissues. Normally, only about 1% of total body magnesium is present in the blood and this makes it difficult to gauge an estimate of magnesium based on blood levels alone. However, it still holds value in evaluating a person's magnesium status.
