Magnesium sulfate or MgSO4 is a chemical compound which contains sulfur, magnesium, and oxygen. It occurs naturally in seawater, mineral springs as well as in minerals for instance kieserite and epsomite. It is commercially available in numerous types, including monohydrate, heptahydrate, anhydrous, or dried. It works by replacing magnesium in the body and growing water in the intestines. It is used orally as a laxative to relieve infrequent constipation, and to treat low levels of magnesium, also known as Epsom salt.
Magnesium sulfate is a vital nutrient for plant growth thus it improves food quality. Magnesium (Mg) plays an essential role in chlorophyll formation & photosynthesis. It influences many metallic processes & reactions for instance photophosphorylation, protein synthesis, photosynthetic carbon dioxide (CO2) fixation, generation of reactive oxygen species, partitioning & utilization of photo-assimilates, and photooxidation in leaf tissues. These processes & reactions are important in the growth stage of the plants and to gain high yields. With the rising food demand globally owing to increase in population, the need for increasing the yield is expected to drive the demand for magnesium sulfate in the production of fertilizers.
The key benefits are included relieves pain & muscle cramps, eases stress & relaxes the body, helps prevent hardening of arteries & blood clots, helps muscles & nerves function properly, relieves constipation and makes insulin more effective. Apart from benefits, some of the side effects are included facial flushing, feeling of warmth, hypotension, confusion, sweating, intense thirst and diminished reflexes.
