About Magnesium & Mag Deficiencies
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and is
essential for energy production within our cells. Sixty percent (60%) of the
body's magnesium is found in our bones and the remainder is found in our
major organs and tissues. Magnesium is critical for maintaining normal
muscle and nerve function, keeping the heart rhythm steady, supporting a
healthy immune system and keeping our bones strong. The processing and
refining of our foods removes much of the food's natural magnesium, hence
magnesium deficiency is extremely common in North America.
Symptoms of magnesium deficiency can include anxiety, fatigue, and
irritability, loss of appetite, migraines, muscle weakness and spasms,
insomnia, mental confusion, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, numbness and
tingling. Certain prescription medications can cause a loss of magnesium
such as diuretics, antibiotics and oral contraceptives. Seniors in general
can greatly improve their health by increasing their magnesium intake.
Why Should You Go Bis-Glycinate?
CanPrev's Magnesium Bis-Glycinate 200 provides the most preferred form of
magnesium for the maintenance of good health. Magnesium Bis-Glycinate 200
supplementation was formulated knowing that the human body is an organic
living being. In order to be properly absorbed, nutrients like magnesium
need to be either in pure organic form; or like magnesium bisglycinate,
attached to an organic molecule (like glycine) that can help it be more
easily transported and absorbed in the intestines.
When we compare its bioavailability to magnesium oxide, magnesium
bisglycinate is found to be 50% more absorbable. High doses of magnesium
oxide and other inorganic forms of magnesium can cause intestinal discomfort
Without magnesium the transmission of nerve and muscle impulses is
compromised. This can lead to nervous disorders, depression and muscle
weakness or twitches. Magnesium is a useful supplement for PMS symptoms that
involves irritability and mood swings. Magnesium also decreases menstrual
pain by relaxing the uterine muscles. In pregnancy magnesium acts as a
uterine relaxant and can prevent premature labour.
Studies show supplemental magnesium in pregnancy also decreases the risk of
birth defects such as cerebral palsy. Magnesium is an important mineral for
cardiovascular health. It regulates the heartbeat, prevents the
calcification of arteries and relaxes arterial vessels to prevent
hypertension. Magnesium has also been researched for its ability to reduce
cholesterol, protect against osteoporosis and prevent cancer.
