Cell salts work to rectify mineral imbalances in the body, encouraging its innate healing processes. In the absence of these essential cell salts, the body becomes more susceptible to common health issues. By replenishing them, the body is better equipped to combat illnesses and promote overall well-being. Mag. Phos., renowned as the main player in every cramp and muscle remedy, is the essential cell salt derived from magnesium phosphate—a crucial mineral compound essential for maintaining the synchronization between muscles, the brain, and the nervous system.
