Nutra-Life - Magnesium Chelate 750
Brand: Nutra-Life | Code: 590848 | Spec: 120.00 Caps
Nutra-Life Magnesium Chelate is a high-potency Magnesium supplement which provides superior absorption. Magnesium is necessary for growth and development, wound healing, immune system function, temperature regulation and many activities of the brain and nervous system.1 Magnesium also plays a role in muscle contraction (both heart and skeletal muscle), muscle relaxation (ie. reducing muscle spasm, shaking, leg and foot cramps) and in regulating blood clotting.
High Potency Formula
Nutra-Life Magnesium Chelate is a high-potency Magnesium supplement providing 150mg of Magnesium per tablet from Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate. Magnesium absorption from chelate is superior to other Magnesium salts, and is used in Nutra-Life Magnesium Chelate supplement for this reason.
Magnesium Deficiency - Wide Spread
Magnesium deficiency is one of the most common nutritional problems in the industrialised world.1 Modern food processing and refining techniques cause considerable loss of this mineral. In New Zealand, Magnesium is also very low in our geology and loss of Magnesium is aggravated by farming techniques that deplete soils of essential minerals.
Stress releases compounds which can cause Magnesium to be released from cells and excreted in the urine. Those people who are especially susceptible to stress are more likely to suffer from Magnesium deficiency.
Muscle Tension / Spasm
Magnesium plays an important role in muscle relaxation helping to reduce muscle spasm and tension. It also helps reduce the incidence of muscle tremor as well as leg and foot cramps.3 When Magnesium flows into muscle tissue cells and Calcium exits the muscle relaxes. Magnesium deficiency is therefore associated with muscle spasms, tremors and convulsions.4
Magnesium is important for heart health because it “simultaneously inhibits platelet clumping, enhances fibrinolytic activity, blocks calcium channels and promotes dilation of blood vessels. Magnesium also improves heart muscle function, thereby allowing an oxygen-deprived heart muscle to cope with less oxygen. That effect is particularly important, since optimising cellular metabolism in time of cardiac stress may mean the difference between cell recovery and cell death.”1
Magnesium also appears to play a crucial role in atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) prevention1. Research has shown the Magnesium somehow protects the blood vessel wall from damage or minimises the damage caused by cholesterol.1
Magnesium deficiency appears to be an important factor in some cases of hypertension (high blood pressure).1
According to Laborit, a French scientist, fatigue is sometimes caused by inefficient energy production within the cells.
By enriching the cells with the nutrients involved in energy production, including Magnesium and Potassium, fatigue might be relieved.1
Magnesium supplements may also enhance athletic performance, improving both muscle strength and endurance.1 Tests have indicated that Magnesium supplementation increased the efficiency of oxygen utilisation, suggesting that Magnesium may enhance aerobic fitness.
Magnesium plays a significant role in helping to prevent hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar) and the symptoms associated with it.1 Symptoms of hypoglycaemia include fatigue, anxiety, irritability, sweating, headaches, insomnia and intense hunger.
Since Magnesium promotes relaxation of bronchial muscles, deficiency increases the likelihood of bronchospasm and cause an asthma attack. Asthma is frequently associated with Magnesium deficiency. Some studies have shown that Magnesium supplementation has improved wheezing and shortness of breath, and may reduce the severity of asthma.
Studies suggest that Magnesium supplementation is an important component of the treatment of PMS.1 Magnesium is often beneficial in reducing menstrual cramps. For best results in the treatment of PMS a comprehensive program that includes diet, exercise, nutritional supplements should be followed.1
Magnesium with calcium is an important component of any osteoporosis prevention programme and is an important component in helping to build and maintain strong, healthy bones.
