Pure Encapsulations Magnesium (citrate/malate), 180 count
Magnesium is a vital mineral that helps the body utilize B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, and vitamin E, as well as activating the enzymes for a number of physiological functions, including neuromuscular contractions, cardiac function, and the regulation of the body's acid-alkaline balance. It helps the body metabolize carbohydrates, amino acids, and fats, as well as utilizing other minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, sodium, and potassium.
In addition, magnesium provides broad-spectrum cardiovascular support, including arterial function, endothelial function, c-reactive protein metabolism and lipid metabolism. A meta-analysis of 20 randomized trials suggests that it also promotes healthy systolic and diastolic function, as well as promoting healthy glucose metabolism. Magnesium also plays important roles in muscle function, mood and calming, and cranial vessel comfort.
Adverse effects from magnesium supplementation are rare when taken as directed, but can include gastrointestinal upset and diarrhea. Individuals with kidney disease should not take magnesium supplements without consulting a doctor.
