Magnesium: Essential for Good Health
Magnesium is an important mineral in multiple aspects of human physiology. It is a cofactor in energy-producing reactions, including mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation. Magnesium regulates muscle and nerve function, and is an important component of bone and tooth structure. Supplementation may be of benefit in a variety of diseases including, cardiovascular disorders (i.e. hypertension, CHF, dysrhythmia), diabetes, migranes, asthma and muscle cramps. In addition, it can be used as a buffering agent to neutralize acids, and it may be necessary to replace depletions caused by medications.
Uses and Benefits
Magnesium has a clinical history of being used for*:
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Cardiovascular desease
- Congestive heart failure (CHF) / Heart disease
- Diabetes / Hypoglycemia
- Kidney stones
- Migraine headache
- Mitral valve prolapse (MVP)
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Muscle cramps
- Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
- Stress / Anxiety
Magnesium: Reported Activity
Magnesium is a cofactor in over 300 enzamatic reaction in human physiology. It participates in neuromuscular activity, including excitation-contraction coupling, temperature regulation, detoxification reactions, synthesis activity (including DNA and RNA synthesis), and energy prodcution through carbohydrate metabolism. It is also necessary for the formation of healthy bones and teeth. It may inhibit platelet aggregation and influence calcium metabolism.
Magnesium: Symptoms of Deficiency
Chronic stress and the acid-producing effects of caffeine, alcohol, processed foods, and sugar deplete magnesium stores in the body. When a deficiency occurs it can cause Muscle cramps and weakness, insomnia, anorexia, gastrointestinal disorders, kidney stones, osteoporosis, arrhythmias, personality changes, mervousness, restlessness, irritability, fear, anxiety, confusion or depression.
MAG Essentials includes three forms of highly absorbed magnesium for a variety of protocols.
- Provides Three Forms of Highly Absorbed Magnesium for a Variety of Protocols
- High-Concentration Magnesium for Cardiovascular Support
- Helps Maintain Healthy Blood Pressure and Glucose Levels
- Promotes Energy Production and Muscle Relaxation
MAG Essentials is an abundant mineral in the body and is found naturally in many foods, like green leafy vegetables. It is also found in over-the-counter medications, such as laxatives. The average American intake of magnesium, according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES Study) is critically low: Many Americans fail to consume the estimated average requirement (EAR) established by the Institute of Medicine. In addition, more than 57% of the population does not meet the United States Department of Agriculture requirements for magnesium in the diet. Intracellular magnesium levels are decreased by excessive intake of alcohol, salt, coffee, phosphoric acid found in sodas, diets high in calcium and high stress levels. Because of widespread nature of magnesium deficiencies, adequate daily intake of magnesium is critical for proper hydration, stress response, muscle relaxation, promoting healthy blood pressure levels, optimal bone mineral density, and blood sugar regulation.
MAG Essentials provides three unique forms of highly-absorbed magnesium to ensure maximum absorption of this important macromineral. Most magnesium supplements use only a single source of magnesium, which can easily overwhelm a single pathway of absorption and limit uptake. MAG Essentials takes advantage of three unique pathways of absorption by providing magnesium as di-magnesium malate, magnesium citrate and magnesium glycinate for enhanced absorption, improved utilization and gastrointestinal (GI) comfort. Some individuals, who take other forms of magnesium supplements, often experience GI side effects, including gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation or a combination of these symptoms. The forms of magnesium used in MAG Essentials preserve GI comfort while maximizing absorption and restoring magnesium levels in the body.
