Welcome to part six of our blog series and your journey to a healthier metabolism, better energy levels, and a healthier body weight.

Today we look at the single most powerful and important fact about magnesium, especially as it relates to your metabolism and energy levels.  (You can find all the scientific literature for this post at iMag library’s metabolism section.)

So Far…ATP

For the entire span of this blog series, we’ve looked at how magnesium is crucial for every stage of making energy from the food you eat (or from your body fat).

Basically, from the time glucose or fatty acids enter your blood stream and then into your cells, to the end-point where your cells’ mitochondria convert them into energy molecules… All the major stages of this process are impossible without magnesium. You need magnesium to make your energy. 

In the last post we learned that ATP molecules are the end products of this energy produciton process. In other words, human energy metabolism generates energy in the form of ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) molecules. 

Magnesium IS Adenosine Triphosphate?

In other words, the entire PROCESS of making energy is magnesium-dependent. But there is something else that’s equally as critical about magnesium as it relates to your energy levels:

Magnesium is also an actual physical part of every single ATP energy molecule your body makes.

That’s right: out of the trillions of ATP molecules your body makes every single second you’re alive, none of them can provide energy unless they are attached to a magnesium atom. 

In fact, in science the true term for a biologically active ATP molecule is actually Mg-ATP. The Mg is the atomic symbol for magnesium. Below is a diagram of the Mg-ATP molecule:

ATP Adenosine Triphosphate needs magnesium in order to give us energy.

In other words, not only do you need magnesium to make energy, MAGNESIUM IS ENERGY. Let’s think about the implications of this: 

Your body makes many trillions of ATP molecules each second you’re alive. If the human body stops making ATP for just 2 seconds, the body dies. EVERY SINGLE ATP MOLECULE NEEDS MAGNESIUM TO BE MADE.


Are you making the effort to live in a healthy way? A more vibrant way? Do you invest in supplements and rituals to give you more energy and youth and increase your well-being? If you are, and you’re not supplementing with magnesium, then your efforts are not making you feel as good as they can be:

Every bodily system you look to improve with supplements, exercise and various daily rituals have one thing in common; they all need energy, and therefore they all need magnesium. As we learned in the first post of this series (as well as in our magnesium basics series), more than 90% of people are deficient in magnesium.

Safe and natural magnesium supplementation is the most powerful way to enhance the benefits of the activities and nutrition you’re applying to improve your energy and overall quality of life.

See why so many people are using iMag natural magnesium to improve their energy levels and increase the benefits of their other supplements and health practices.

We’ll see you in the next post where we look at how magnesium also protects your body’s energy factories – your mitochondria.
