Carolyn Dean has played a major role in bringing attention to the importance of magnesium, and this throughout her career as a medical practitioner, teaching patients, colleagues and the general public about the consequences of magnesium deficiency and the amazing---indeed miraculous---benefits of magnesium supplementation.

In this book, the author presents a summary of what makes magnesium unique and important, its physiological role in humans, (in fact, in all higher animals), and then engages in a thorough overview of the relationship between magnesium and various diseases and health conditions. It is well written, the presentation is clear, and the contents are truly very enlightening, even if somewhat repetitive at times. But this is likely because of magnesium's fundamental role in so many interrelated biochemical reactions, and physiological functions, response mechanisms and metabolic processes.

The detail with which Dean explains the implications of magnesium deficiency on a huge array of totally different conditions is in itself worth reading this book because we learn a tremendous amount about just how various systems of the body function and respond to conditions that usually are far from optimal, and how the addition of supplemental magnesium can so effectively affect positive change. If there is a single conclusion to be drawn from this book it is this: Start magnesium supplementation today; it is inexpensive, safe and could literally save your life.

This book was the source of inspiration for the article Why you should start taking magnesium today:
