How It Works:
Magnesium is an essential mineral. It is present in more than 300 enzymatic systems where it is crucial for energy production and other metabolic functions. The heart, brain and kidneys cannot function without adequate levels of this nutrient. Magnesium is used in reaction to form Tri Carboxylic Acid (TCA), which aids in the cells energy-producing cycle. It is also involved in smooth muscle contractions, affecting the heart, gastrointestinal, urinary and female reproductive tracts.
Magnesium citrate and magnesium malate.
Take 2 capsules twice daily with meals.
Magnesium was named for Magnesia, the region in Greece where this mineral compound was first found. Magnesium has gained real popularity for its soothing effect on the bowel. In fact, magnesium citrate is widely used as a bowel prep agent prior to a colonoscopy procedure. Several studies show that it is as effective as other regimens in that regard. However, magnesium is so much more. It is critical to bone development and health--and supports heart, brain and kidney function. A 2011 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reveals that magnesium supplementation even helps overweight people improve their metabolism. What a great benefit! Current studies show that magnesium also helps support a healthy pregnancy.
