Magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals found in the body. It is predominantly found within our body’s cells and bones playing an important role in health and nutrition. Magnesium is essential for more than 700 biochemical reactions in the body. These include the structural development of bone, protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood pressure regulation and blood glucose control. Magnesium is a vital component in nerve impulse conduction, muscle contraction, and normal heart rhythm.
Magnesium plays an important role in lifelong health and vitality. Low levels of magnesium have been associated with a number of chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, osteoporosis, and type 2 diabetes.
Additionally, magnesium plays a critical part in physical performance. Adequate magnesium status is of the utmost importance for both competitive and recreational athletes given the role magnesium plays in cellular reactions, releasing energy from carbohydrates and fats, and its important role in muscle contraction during strength training and endurance activity.
There are many reasons why magnesium deficiencies exist including: consuming foods which are low in magnesium, changes in farming practices, food processing techniques, along with the consumption of over-the-counter and prescription drugs. That is why NeoLife’s Scientific Advisory Board formulated NeoLife’s Magnesium Complex. Magnesium Complex combines three well known forms of magnesium in Tri-Mag Blend and whole food phytonutrients (PhytoMag Blend) to help supplement the diet.
