An adult's body contains around 25g magnesium. It is one of the most important minerals in the body and it plays a central role in various metabolic processes. In large doses, magnesium in the form of magnesium sulphate has a mild diuretic effect. It increases the release of an enzyme, Cholecystokinin, which causes the pancreas to secrete digestive enzymes. This stimulates the bowel. With excessive consumption, magnesium can cause diarrhoea.
A lack of magnesium can often lead to constipation. The causes of magnesium deficiency can be very diverse. They can include, for example, some types of medication, increased demand (stress, age, growth, pregnancy), diet-related factors (fast food, weight-loss diets), increased loss (kidney disease, anorexia) or intestinal conditions (malabsorption). Magnesium deficiency not only leads to constipation, but can also often result in headaches, muscle cramps, sleep problems, heart arrhythmia, raised cholesterol levels and impaired vitamin D metabolism.
