This article from Remarkable-Recovery.com on Magnesium and Glutathione is a must read. It covers free radicals in tissue injury induced by Mg deficiency, elimination of waste products, re-mineralization is so essential for heavy metal detoxification and chelation, heavy metal toxicity in children, mercury poisoning from vaccines, glutathione requires magnesium for its synthesis, neurological disorders, and more. It is a great read and a look into why magnesium is so important for so many functions in the body.
"Magnesium protects cells from aluminum, mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium and nickel, which explains why re-mineralization is so essential for heavy metal detoxification and chelation. Magnesium protects the brain from toxic effects of chemicals thus it is highly likely that low total body magnesium contributes to heavy metal toxicity in children and is a strong participant in the etiology of learning disorders.
Without sufficient magnesium, the body accumulates toxins and acid residues, degenerates rapidly, and ages prematurely. Recent research has pointed to low glutathione levels being responsible for childrens vulnerability to mercury poisoning from vaccines.[iv] It seems more than reasonable to assume that low levels of magnesium would also render a child vulnerable. And in fact we find out that glutathione requires magnesium for its synthesis.[v] Glutathione synthetase requires ?-glutamyl cysteine, glycine, ATP, and magnesium ions to form glutathione."
