In the perfect world, we would get all the magnesium we need from food. In reality, a gradual depletion of our soil through modern agricultural practices means that most of the food we eat contains very little magnesium.
More than 80% of North Americans do not even consume the minimum daily recommended amounts of magnesium, and our stressful lifestyles leave us severely deficient.
High consumption of coffee, tea, alcohol, sugar, processed foods and prescription drugs deplete our already low magnesium levels. Adding a magnesium supplement to our diet helps to ensure that our body has enough of this essential mineral to maintain optimal health.
Magnesium and glycine both have a calming effect on muscles and nerves and promotes good sleep. Magnesium Glycinate is one of the best absorbed forms of magnesium.
Magnesium malate helps muscles to produce energy, which may help to reduce muscle pain, improve recovery and increase overall energy levels.
Vitamin B6 in the active form of P5P addresses a common deficiency that can further deplete magnesium levels. There is evidence that P5P is 5x more absorbable than standard B6 and helps magnesium and zinc to be absorbed where it is needed most.
Zinc has been found to be critical for protein synthesis, which helps with muscle recovery and growth, while also aiding in the absorption of calcium into bones and teeth.
Helps support improvement in:
• Difficulty Sleeping & Restless Legs
• Headaches & Fatigue
• High Blood Pressure & Irregular Heartbeat
• Mental Performance
Magnesium is involved in over 325 biochemical processes in the body, making it vital in every organ system.
One of the most important roles that magnesium plays in the body is in the function of muscles. Muscle cells relax and contract through a mechanism of balancing calcium and magnesium.
This balance will fail when magnesium levels are depleted and calcium begins to dominate. When this happens, we experience tight muscles, pain and even spasms. Left untreated this can lead to chronic pain.
