Magnesium for a magnificent you

Magnesium is an extremely important mineral as it is a critical co-factor in more than 300 enzymatic (biochemical) reactions in the human body. It is also necessary for the assimilation of potassium and the functioning of enzymes such as those that transport, store & utilise energy, and for regulating cell growth, cell reproduction and cell metabolism. If your body is deficient in magnesium, it will be functioning well below its capacity. There are some tell-tale signs and symptoms of a magnesium deficiency.

Symptoms of magnesium deficiency;

  • Contraction of smooth muscles – constipation, urinary spasms, menstrual cramps etc
  • Muscle spasm & cramping
  • Numbness, tingling
  • Low energy, fatigue
  • Insomnia, anxiety, irritability (if affecting the central nervous system)

Obtaining magnesium from your diet is the ideal, however due to a drastic decline in food based nutrient sources over the last century (a result of insufficient magnesium levels in soils), magnesium content in vegetables are well below their levels of the past. Declines from 25-80% since pre-1950 figures have been documented with typical grain refining processes for bread and pasta removing 80-95% of total magnesium.

Some of the foods that contain magnesium are beans & nuts, whole grains & green leafy vegetables, however it should be noted that the majority of good magnesium sources contain only about 10% or less of recommended daily amounts.

To ensure your body is receiving the magnesium it requires, we recommend Bio Ceuticals Ultramuscleze Energy which combines high doses of magnesium and B vitamins to support you through stress and daily life.
