Out of all the supplements I’ve sold in the past 6 years, this giant among nutrients has been said to contribute to exceptional results. Magnesium is a macromineral and part of a group called electrolytes. Electrolytes form a solution in water and conduct electricity through ionization, which is crucial for the brain and central nervous system as well as heart health. Specifically, the diverse role of magnesium in biological functions includes some 300 enzymatic reactions! Converting amino acids (protein) and other food into energy requires a magnesium-based enzyme or kinase. Therefore magnesium is essential for cell growth, reproduction and repair as well as creation of new strands of DNA. Magnesium also assists in regulating blood flow, relaxing muscles, including the heart muscle, maintaining optimal blood pressure and helping the heart pump. Symptoms indicating a magnesium deficiency might include hyperkinetic behavior, neuromuscular convulsions like leg cramps, heart arrhythmia, depressed immune response, anxiety and inability to sleep. RDAs of magnesium depend on age & gender, but approximately 400mgs for adults is suggested. There’s a variety of ways to get magnesium; in the form of capsules, tablets and powders mostly bound to different compounds like citrate or glycinate (two absorbable forms). Also, the “ionic” powdered form that is mixed in water is very effective and quickly absorbed.
