  • Helps carbohydrate metabolism: supports healthy insulin levels.
  • Relaxes all types of muscles.
  • Supports healthy pre-menstrual cycles.

Product Information

Magnesium is an essential element for normal body function. There are over 300 different enzymatic reactions that involve magnesium. This mineral is necessary for every step of a cell’s energy-creating process, nerve activities, vascular function, and bone formation (to name a few).

Perhaps surprisingly, magnesium is found in your bones (55%), in muscles (26%), in tissues (18%) and in your blood (a small 1%).

Meanwhile, there are decades of scientific information demonstrating that magnesium is safe and helpful in supporting cardiovascular, musculoskelatal health as well as helping to maintain healthy insulin levels.

One primary enzymatic activity of magnesium is its influence on the vascular system. Your vascular system consists of copious amounts of blood vessels (arteries and veins), which are continually pushing blood through your body. Each time your heart beats, it forces much of the blood into the arteries, and from there, arteries and veins are on their own. They are lined with smooth muscle. This muscle contracts and expands pushing blood through the vessels.

There are many factors that influence this smooth muscle’s activity, but at the forefront is magnesium. Magnesium is critical to expanding muscles and opening up the blood vessels. Conversely, another important mineral, calcium, constricts the blood vessel and therefore increases blood pressure.

With two important minerals at odds with each other when it comes to blood vessel contraction and expansion, it is important to keep magnesium and calcium in balance. What happens when they are not in balance? Hypertension.

If the concentration of magnesium decreases while calcium increases, vessels contract longer and your blood pressure goes up.

Other common problems can occur when these minerals are out of balance—such as migraine headaches.

Migraines occur when the blood vessels of the brain act erratically. The large brain blood vessels are dilated and the small vessels are constricted. Research has found that patients with migraines have low magnesium levels in the brain's blood vessels.

Magnesium in easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsules offers a wonderful source of bio-available magnesium and allows our members the ability to open the capsule and add it to a shake or other meal.

Warnings

  • For best absorption, take magnesium with a meal and ensure intake of vitamin B6 and vitamin D in your daily dietary supplement.
  • Magnesium can be taken throughout the day; however, a final dose at bedtime may increase absorption. Magnesium also helps to relax and calm the body, allowing better sleep.
  • The elderly are at increased risk of hypomagnesemia.
  • The elderly are more prone to decreased magnesium absorption, increased urinary loss, and disease states associated with abnormal magnesium status.
Factoids
  • An astounding 80 percent of the American population is deficient in magnesium!
  • Magnesium-rich foods, include leafy green veggies, beans, nuts, and soybeans.
  • High fat diets, salt, coffee, soft drinks (with large amounts of phosphate), and alcohol all reduce magnesium absorption.

Magnesium - Keeping the Electrolytes in Balance April 9, 2014
Reviewer: Chris H. from Ashland, OR United States  
It's easy to get dehydrated, even if we think we're drinking enough water -- Magnesium helps as one of the vital minerals we need to stay in good shape (and helps with eliminating cramping). Always ships on time -- great quality!
