Magnesium (elemental) - 60 mg
In the form of Magnesium citrate 16% powder - 375 mg
Magnesium is an essential mineral and electrolyte that plays an important role for bones and muscles. Magnesium deficiency prevents the effect of vitamin D and ensures sodium retention.
Magnesium comes in different forms in the body and is used for more than half in the bones, muscles and soft tissues. The body does not save reserves. It plays an important role in gene regulation, transmission of nerve impulses and muscle contraction.
Magnesium participates in more than 300 body processes, the most important of which relate to energy production, DNA production, antioxidant effect, body structure, bones, muscles, nerves and blood vessels. In these processes, magnesium acts as a co-factor that ensures that enzymes and proteins can perform their function in the body.
There are no scientifically attributable claims to magnesium, although it can contribute to reducing fatigue and fatigue and optimize the psychological function according to EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) in 2010.
Although extra intake is not necessary with a balanced diet, the standard Western diet with lots of fats and added sugars is very low in magnesium. Moreover, the need increases when you exercise regularly, which is part of a healthy lifestyle.
Magnesium is available in three forms: salt forms, acid forms and amino acid chelates. The acids and chelates are best absorbed.
Considering the broad-spectrum importance of magnesium, the formula contains an amino acid chelate, namely magnesium citrate.
