Pharma Nord Bio-Magnesium 150 Tablets
What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral; although the human body contains a relatively small amount (approximately 25g, 60% of which is in the skeleton), magnesium plays a vital role in the normal functioning of the body.
Magnesium used in supplements may occur in several chemical forms; magnesium oxide is the least expensive but is poorly absorbed, magnesium hydroxide is the form most readily absorbed, whilst magnesium acetate and magnesium carbonate are least likely to cause digestive system upset.
Magnesium deficiency is very common. Magnesium can be excreted when we are stressed and eating a high caffeine, high sugar diet.
Magnesium levels in the body deplete following intense physical activity, or by drinking alcohol. Many individuals may not have an adequate intake of magnesium, because of their reliance on processed foods, which contain little magnesium.
If you fidget, have restless legs, suffer from anxiety, have hypertension or palpitations, you could need more magnesium in your diet. Magnesium is believed to have an anti-hypertensive effect and may help with sleep patterns.
What is Bio-Magnesium?
Magnesium supplements from Pharma Nord contain a complex of three different Magnesium compounds: acetate, hydroxide and carbonate. This ensures good bioavailability.
Magnesium controls more than 600 different enzyme processes in the body, many of which contribute to normal muscle function, nervous system function, and psychological functions. Magnesium is also important for bones and teeth.
