Natroceutics Magnesium Complex
As an essential mineral for optimal health, magnesium is involved in most major metabolic processes, playing a a crucial role in over 300 enzyme reactions operating throughout the day. Magnesium deficiency – caused by inadequate amounts of nutritional content in our diets, could lead to a wide range of health conditions.
With a greater need for increased minerals, Natroceutics Magnesium Complex is developed to deliver optimal levels of magnesium and overcome the limitations of conventional supplementation through a complex which includes liposomal magnesium, magnesium citrate and the full spectrum of complete trace minerals.
Magnesium is directly involved in more than 300 enzyme systems in the human body, regulating a diverse range of functions.
A magnesium deficiency can result in a multitude of factors that cause minor and major health issues. Testing for magnesium deficiency is challenging as it’s mostly stored intracellularly and very little is circulated in the blood [plasma].
It is estimated that the majority of people do not consume enough magnesium daily for optimal health. While there are many symptoms that can be directly felt, these are in fact minor relative to the major consequences of chronic magnesium deficiency that are not directly felt.
Magnesium deficiency will affect the following:
Blood glucose control and insulin sensitivity, affecting weight, body composition and food cravings.
The production of glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant, directly linked to the immune system and ageing. Meaning you are more likely to fall ill and age prematurely.
Blood pressure regulation and cardiovascular health.
Common Symptoms Experienced As Result Of Deficiency:
- Chronic fatigue.
- Body weakness.
- Anxiety and depression.
- Poor concentration.
- Muscle cramps.
- Digestive disorders.
- Muscle cramping and twitching.
- Numbness and tingling in the body.
Additional Risk Factors For The Development Of Magnesium Deficiency:
- High intake of caffeine or stimulants.
- Various medications.
- Gastrointestinal disorders.
- Chronic stress.
- Over consumption of refined foods.
Considerations when selecting a Magnesium supplement.
There are varying levels of magnesium absorption into the body depending on the source of the magnesium being consumed. It does not matter how much magnesium you consume, what really matters is what is absorbed by the body. Therefore, it’s important to consider your source.
Magnesium oxide is often used as a source [of magnesium] in supplements as it is inexpensive, however, it is very poorly absorbed. Magnesium citrate, magnesium glycinate and magnesium chloride are far more favourable as they are absorbed and tolerated well. Ensure you are making accurate comparisons, as simply comparing total magnesium content might be misleading. There are other forms of magnesium that are less common but also provide benefit.
Magnesium is absorbed through foods we consume; this digestive process provides a natural and sustained release process. Often supplements provide a large once-off dose which is taken rapidly. This may not offer optimal results. A more sustained release would mimic the natural up-take of magnesium by the body. If your product does not offer this, taking smaller doses more frequently with meals may provide better results.
