Yes, circadian rhythms actually do affect almost everything

Cell Res. 2016 Jul;26(7):759-60. doi: 10.1038/cr.2016.65. Epub 2016 May 31.


Circadian rhythms in the level of intracellular Mg appear to be widely conserved phylogenetically, and have the potential to impact nearly all aspects of metabolism. Moreover, the clock regulates the ion channels that generate the rhythm, demonstrating that the whole cell operates as a circadian system.
