Magnesium Citrate 120mg - 90 Capsules
MAGNESIUM CITRATE offers very well absorbed magnesium in a high potency, 120 mg capsule.
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals required for human health. It serves as a cofactor in at least 300 enzymatic reactions within the body, including those related to energy production. Magnesium helps to maintain healthy blood vessel tone and is often used to help support the maintenance of a healthy cardiovascular system. Magnesium ions are required for muscle relaxation to occur, including the cardiac muscle and other large muscles in the body. Magnesium may help to relax the bowel, promoting regularity, and help support emotional wellbeing and balance during the premenstrual cycle.
In its role as a coenzyme, magnesium assists in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates and participate in healthy nerve cell transmission and conduction. As a structural mineral, magnesium works together with calcium to help promote healthy teeth formation and bone mineral density. Many people do not obtain enough magnesium from dietary sources and magnesium deficiency is common.
The citrate form of magnesium is made by reacting a naturally occurring form of magnesium (typically oxide) with pharmaceutical grade, pure citric acid. The resulting magnesium citrate is far more readily soluble than magnesium oxide alone. Oxides and carbonates depend on high levels of stomach acid for absorption, but citrates and other Krebs cycle intermediates do not. Individuals with hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid) may particularly benefit from taking magnesium citrate and other chelated forms of magnesium that do not require high stomach acid for absorption.
