Magnesium serves many crucial roles and is involved with water soluble calcium, sodium and potassium in the processes of helping to transmit electrical impluses across nerves and muscles, regulation of blood pressure, bone building and more. The electrical impulses generate neuromuscular contraction.
Magnesium is required for the production and transfer of energy from protein synthesis for contractility of muscle and excitability of nerves. It is a co-factor in a myriad of enzyme systems and there are over 300 enzymes that require magnesium as a cofactor including in glutathione synthesis which is involved in liver detoxification, protein synthesis, neurotransmitter and hormone synthesis and B6 metabolism.
Delivers magnesium in a form that passes more directly to where it can be absorbed by the intestine. The magnesium does not need to be broken down in the stomach so is more readily available. This Ionic Magnesium supplement provides a low dose of magnesium so it is suitable for gradual addition of the mineral in the diet.
Magnesium is an essential nutrient with many functions in the human body:
- it helps maintain energy and combat fatigue
- it helps build and maintain bones and teeth
- it contributes to the health of nerve, muscle and cell membranes
- it contributes to normal muscle function, including the heart
- it helps with protein manufacture
- it can help to keep some of the body’s other mineral and hormone systems in balance
One dose provides 10.6 mg active magnesium. This is about 3% of the recommended daily intake.
Magnesium is readily available in a normal balanced diet. But for some people it may not be possible to source or absorb all the magnesium they need. Correcting a magnesium deficiency could reduce tiredness and fatigue, help to restore nerve and muscle function, and support the health of bones and teeth.
High doses of magnesium can have a laxative effect. It is recommended to keep below 400mg per day unless prescribed by a practitioner.
