Some researchers believe magnesium holds the key to resolving many types of chronic pain. In the body, magnesium converts vitamin D, which the body needs to take advantage of bone-strengthening calcium, into a form that it can use efficiently. By contributing to increased bone density, the mineral may help stall the onset of osteoporosis. Magnesium may also help to ease tension headaches, muscle cramps, muscle strains, and muscle tension. If you have a magnesium deficiency, you may experience excessive muscle tension, which may trigger muscle spasms, restlessness, tics, and twitches.
