Magnesium is necessary for the development of immunity of the child, increases its resistance to gastrointestinal diseases. Magnesium also promotes rapid healing of wounds.
Trace elements potassium and sodium play an important role in the human body. So, for example, potassium takes part in the functioning of soft tissues, in water-salt metabolism, maintains the balance of fluid inside the cell. It is especially important for the work of the heart muscle. When potassium is not enough, sodium takes its place in the cell.
