Endometriosis and Magnesium

Women with endometriosis were found to have low levels of magnesium during the menstrual cycle, causing symptoms of endometriosis and menstrual cramps.

How magnesium effects women with endometriosis.
1. Abnormal cell development

Deficiency of magnesium decreases the ability of DNA and RNA synthesis in the body leading to cell abnormality, such as peritoneal cells growing into endometrial cells in the abdomen.

2. Protagslandins hormones

Magnesium is essential for the liver to balance the protagslandins hormones that control the uterine muscles during the menstrual cycle. Deficiency of magnesium causes the over-production of certain hormones in the prostaglandins family resulting in pre-menstrual syndrome and menstrual cramps for women with endometriosis.

3. Nervous system
Deficiency of magnesium decreases the carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism of the liver leading to nutrient deficiency of nerve cells. Without enough nutrients for the nervous system it causes symptoms of endometriosis such as anxiety, and depression as resulting of nervous system tensions.

4. Estrogen
Since magnesium helps in synthesis of protein and fat, it helps the liver to produce good estrogen which keeps the levels of bad estrogen in check resulting in lessening the levels of period pain and menstrual cramps.

5. Circulation system
Magnesium also plays an important role in lowering the levels of bad cholesterol in the arteries which helps to increase the blood circulation of oxygen and the carrying of nutrients to the body's brain cells. This helps to reduce tension of the nervous system and decreases the risk of heart diseases and stroke.
