Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body. The nutrient is essential for hundreds of metabolic processes and many other important bodily functions — from producing energy to building important proteins like your DNA. However, you may not be getting enough of it, even if you eat a healthy diet.

  • Origin: Plant Based, Synthetic, Nonessential, Animal Product
  • Type: Mineral
  • Age Range: Adults, Seniors
  • Toxicity: May be toxic in high doses
  • Outcomes: Bone and Joint Health, Specific Conditions, Bone Density, Blood Pressure

What are Magnesium benefits?

Magnesium is a dietary mineral essential for the development and overall healthy functioning of the human body and is the second most prevalent electrolyte in the body. As such, magnesium is required for hundreds of metabolic processes and other important bodily functions – from energy production to the building of important proteins such as DNA. Magnesium deficiency in the body can increase blood pressure, reduce glucose tolerance, and cause neural excitation. It is also worth noting that, according to studies, magnesium can provide several benefits, such as: helps combat depression and improves ADHD; can reduce blood pressure; has anti-inflammatory benefits, has benefits against type 2 diabetes; improves exercise performance; helps treat and prevent migraines, and can help with PMS symptoms.

Bone and Joint Health Magnesium and Bone and Joint Health

Bone and joint health are deeply affected by vitamins, hormones and minerals, such as calcium, vitamin D and thyroid hormones. Supplements that affect bone and joint health help their structure and strength, in addition to contributing to the healthy balance of involved nutraceuticals.
  • Bone Density

    Bone density or bone mineral density (BMD) is the amount of bone mineral in bone tissue. The measurement of bone mineral density is used in medicine as an indirect indicator of osteoporosis and risk of fractures.

Specific Conditions Magnesium and Specific Conditions

Specific body conditions categorize precise areas of our body, such as: Respiratory allergies; Liver; Eye health; Blood pressure; Cholesterol and triglycerides; and Blood glucose control. These areas require specific attention because they are delicate functions related to other parts of the body. Respiratory allergies, for example, are linked to the immune system, and to present an effective nutraceutical, we keep our scientific base up to date.
  • Blood Pressure

    Blood pressure is the pressure of circulating blood against the walls of blood vessels which results from the heart pumping blood through the circulatory system. Like most aspects of the organism, this too needs to stay at a healthy range, for the circulation of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
