This Is The Importance Of Magnesium and Potassium For Our Body

This Is The Importance Of Magnesium and Potassium For Our Body

During this time we generally only know that the body needs vitamins, proteins and minerals. As it turns out, specifically about minerals, if it is parsed further it will be known that the body does not only need one mineral element. For example, the benefits of magnesium and potassium for health.


Dr. Fatemeh Aghanasiri, General Practitioner at Aster Clinic, Dubai, explained that balancing magnesium and potassium levels is very important to maintain the body's energy.

"Magnesium  plays an important role in alots biochemical reactions in the body including food metabolism, fatty acid synthesis and protein, and transmission of nerve impulses," Aghanasiri was quoted as saying by TEMPO.CO from the Gulf News page.

The content of magnesium also plays an important role in reactions that produce energy in the body. Consumption of magnesium-rich foods is a must to keep energy levels up during Ramadan. Such foods include nuts such as almonds and cashews, dates, flaxseeds and green leafy vegetables.

Selan magnesium, don't forget the benefits of potassium.

"Potassium is also the main mineral that the body is very relied upon to function properly. "Salmon, green leafy vegetables, pumpkin, lentils, and sweet potatoes are good sources of potassium," added Aghanasiri.

Meanwhile, Dr. Eman Abisourour, Internal Medicine Consultant at the Valiant Clinic, Dubai said that if food intake is very bad at fasting, it can cause thinning of vitamins and important nutrients in the body, which can increase fatigue and lethargy.

Dehydration is also very common during Ramadan because many people are accustomed to reducing water intake and eating more caffeinated drinks.

Lebaran, which is only a few days away, is very important to regulate sleep hours, food intake and energy levels during the last few days of Ramadan.

"It's important to ease the body back into its normal routine. Make sure you eat balanced foods, usually mild ones, to make sure you don't interfere with your stomach and digestion, "Abisourour said.

Abisourour also recommends increasing sports sessions and hours of sleep per night closer to the Eid holidays.

"People have to try to sleep relatively early so that they can get enough rest and the body can enter the deep stage of sleep needed to replenish itself with enough energy," Abisourour added.
