Magnesium is an important naturally occurring mineral in our body that maintains the functions of many different systems especially the nerves and the muscles.  As a supplement, it is used to treat low magnesium levels.
Magnesium is noted to be particularly important in bone formation and a deficiency of this mineral may play a role in the development of osteoporosis.  Stress is a factor in depleting our levels of magnesium.  Sleep deprivation (which the GenF20 HGH Releaser supplement helps combat, as well as invigorate the body and mind), may also deplete our supply of this important mineral.
Since magnesium promotes muscle function, a deficiency of magnesium will lead to overt muscle tension which will manifest itself in muscle spasms, tics, twitches and generalized restlessness. 
These symptoms would be due to the imbalance of calcium to magnesium.  Calcium promotes the contraction of the muscles while magnesium promotes the relaxation.
Taking magnesium is often recommended together with calcium supplementation because these two minerals work together.  People with certain medical conditions should consult with their doctor or pharmacist before taking magnesium supplements.  These conditions include if you are pregnant or breast feeding, taking prescription drugs or herbal remedies, have allergies, have appendicitis, heart or kidney problems or have diarrhea. 
Magnesium chloride may interfere with certain medications such as anticoagulants, biphosphates, digoxin, penicillamine and other antibiotics.  Consult your physician before taking magnesium for a complete list of possible drug interactions.
Watch for side effects of magnesium supplementation such as diarrhea.  For severe side effects such as allergic reaction with rash, hives or itching, seek medical attention immediately.
