Thank you for joining us on this journey to understanding and protecting your DNA, reducing your cancer and disease risk, and passing on healthy genes to your children!

Today’s post will serve as a quick review of all the major roles that magnesium plays in your genetic health and function. Our goal is to empower you with the knowledge of your DNA’s most essential nutrient, that you may spread the word to your friends and loved ones.

This is critical because we are currently in times where scientists and health experts have concluded that magnesium deficiency affects over 90% of people to some degree or other.

First let’s quickly review what your DNA is:



Your DNA Makes You!

DNA is a large instruction manual (made of millions of genes). Each one of your trillions of cells (which make up your body parts) has it’s own complete set of DNA. Your cells use your DNA’s genes as instructions to make vital proteins out of the food you eat. These proteins serve the following two purposes:

  1. They literally are the physical part of your body.
  2. They allow your cells and body parts to function.

This helps explain why damage and malfunction of human DNA can lead to many minor and major forms of disease including diabetes, heart disease, neurodegenerative diseases, digestive disorders, skin diseases, various types of cancer and more.

Magnesium & Your DNA Health

In this journey we learned that magnesium is critical to all the main functions and protective measures of your DNA. A human being needs magnesium to:

  1. Convert their DNA into vital proteins (which is the very purpose of DNA).
  2. Copy and replicate DNA to facilitate the development of a fetus, baby and child into an adult.  
  3. Protect DNA from calcification, inflammation and oxidative stress.
  4. Repair DNA daily with 3 special DNA repair enzymes called DNA Ligases.

Simply put, magnesium is indispensable when it comes to your DNA. It’s simply essential. Perhaps a better way to put it is that magnesium IS a part of the concept that we call DNA. It’s engrained in the very nature of your DNA.

If you’re deficient in magnesium – which most people are – then your DNA is suffering and deteriorating to some degree. This is a fact.


Your DNA is the instruction manual that keeps your body alive and working properly. Period. The worse your DNA’s health, the worse your health and the faster you age and develop disease.

DNA health is magnesium-dependent. Magnesium deficiency = poor DNA health. There is no way around this.

This is why the healthiest and most pro-active people are using iMag natural magnesium to keep their DNA healthy, to reduce their risk of disease and to increase the likelihood of passing on healthy genes to their offspring.

Thanks again for joining us on this journey of DNA discovery. We hope this information is valuable enough for you to share with your friends and loved ones, and help change their lives for the better.
