Magnesium and its diverse effects

It all started with photosynthesis. It is interesting to note that to evaluate the importance of magnesium for our body and consequences of its deficit began when have discovered the secrets of photosynthesis of plants,but a few decades ago.
The process of continuous education of organic matter began billions of years ago, when the Earth came the pigments, causing a chemical reaction by means of absorption of the sun's rays. A decisive role was played by "CCD" substances from the group of porphyrins, formed from simple compounds - acetic acid and glycerine. But only the appearance magnesium porphyrin derivative in the form of chlorophyll began the natural history of higher forms of organic life. Chlorophyll has the ability to conduct irreversible photochemical reaction, energy is koumouliruet in sustainable biochemical compounds.
The process of photosynthesis took shape, probably in the late pre-Cambrian period (about 1000 million years ago). Structure of chlorophyll very close to the structure of heme - the main constituent of pigment in the blood. The difference is that in the structure of chlorophyll is magnesium (magnesium ion), as part of heme and hemoglobin, iron (iron ion). This discovery Professor of chemistry of the Jagiellonian University, Leon Marchlewskiego confirmed the link of the evolution of flora and fauna.
Plants withering away, when the soil is little magnesium, they grow slower, the leaves become pale and premature yellowing. The addition of magnesium salts in the soil completely returns plants "health".
We can say that a person is the same thing, though... everything is much more complicated. Man cannot be healthy if food is not enough magnesium. To this conclusion came the members of the first Congress on diseases caused by deficiency of magnesium. The Congress was held in may 1971 in Vittel. Jonah magnesium plays a special role in almost all occurring in the body processes. So, in immune processes it acts as a factor antistress, protivomoskitnye, antiallergic, anaphylactic (kind of sensitivity), anti-inflammatory, protection from ionizing radiation, regulating the temperature, stimulating phagocytosis and participating in the creation of antibodies. Magnesium has a relaxing effect and reduces the sensitivity of the organism. It was then, at the Congress in Vittel Professor Durlach said, "the Sign of the civilized world is constantly declining level of the magnesium ion".
It seems that civilization diseases largely caused by magnesium deficiency in the body. So what should you look to the magnesium more closely.
We receive magnesium from the soil through foods of plant origin and products obtained from animals that feed on plants. So that our body gets so much magnesium, how much is it in the soil.
Meanwhile in the soil magnesium little. In 40 % of the Polish lands marked magnesium deficiency, 34 % of the land - average content, and less than 26 % - sufficient or high. Artificial fertilizers or not enrich the soil with magnesium or she receives too little. For example, over 1971-1975 average number added in Polish lands magnesium amounted to 10-12 kg of magnesium oxide (MgO) on 1 hectare of cropland. Is it much or little? Wheat at harvest 40 C/ha should receive from the soil around 17 kg from 1 ha MgO, and sugar beet in the harvesting of only 350 C/ha - about 66 kg.
Of course, the amount of magnesium fertilizers depends on the content of magnesium in soil and species of cultivated plants. This is usually from 130 to 260 kg/ha of such quantity of kieserite (magnesium fertilizers in the soil goes 30-60 kg of magnesium oxide and, in addition, 15-31 kg of potassium oxide. Manure contains 0.18 % of magnesium, which means that if we make on 1 hectare of 300 kg of manure, soil receives approximately 54 kg Mg. This is definitely not enough.
In the structure of chlorophyll is 2,7 % magnesium. Magnesium ions regulate the degree of hydration of cells. With a lack of magnesium in plants is limited to the process of evaporation of water, and in abundance - plant intensively soaks up water, so that the soil dries up within the root system.
Different authors give conflicting data on the content of magnesium in plants. Usually leaves more calcium than magnesium, but when ripe fruit and seeds, plant gives them the whole magnesium.
