Summary

  • Magnesium and phosphate are both essential for the production and storage of energy in the body
  • Phosphate is incorporated into compounds such as ATP and cyclic AMP
  • Magnesium combines with and stabilises the ATP molecule, and the resultant Mg-ATP complex (rather than ATP alone) is the substrate for most ATP-requiring enzymes
  • Magnesium has inhibitory and stabilising effects on neurons at the neuromuscular junction, and plays an influencing role in the release of neurotransmitters
  • Sulfur compounds are involved in phase II detoxification (conjugation), where they render metabolites more water-soluble, thereby inactivating them and facilitating their excretion in the bile, faeces or urine
  • Sodium is required for bile production, and is incorporated into the conjugation products of several bile salts
  • Sulfate is a structural component of many glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans, glycolipids and glycoproteins and as such, is a stabiliser of connective tissue and contributes to its strength, elasticity and hydration
  • Sulfated glycosaminoglycan production is important in injury and wound repair
