Advanced bioavailable complex of minerals and herbs for the relief of cramps, nervous tension, and the symptoms of PMS.
Magnesium is a master mineral that coordinates the proper function of nerves, muscle, blood vessels and bone.
Seventy per cent of the body s Magnesium is stored in bones and teeth.
As Magnesium helps to hold Calcium in our bones it may protect against Calcium build-up in arteries.
Magnesium is vital to the functioning of muscles (including the heart), as well as to the transmission of nerve impulses and to brain function.
Magnesium is also involved in many enzyme systems responsible for the metabolism of foods and the release of energy.
A diet high in dairy products and simple sugar increases Magnesium requirements in the body and an increased consumption of processed foods, which are often depleted in Magnesium, leads to symptoms of Magnesium deficiency.
Magnesium deficiency may also arise as a result of other factors that reduce absorption or increase excretion of Magnesium, such as regular alcohol comsumption, the use of diuretics, liver or kidney disease and the use of oral contraceptives.
Because Magnesium is best absorbed in a bound form, Organic Magnesium Complete has been formulated to include Magnesium aspartate, Magnesium orotate and Magnesium amino acid chelate. Organic forms are better absorbed and are better utilised than inorganic forms because they are presented to the body in a form which can be more readily and rapidly absorbed. Thompson s Organic Magnesium Complete is, thus, a highly bioavailable form of Magnesium, in a base of the Magnesium-rich wholefoods, Kelp, Wheat Germ and Millet. It also contains Vitamin B6 and Vitamin D as cofactors involved in the absorption and utilisation of Magnesium.
Magnesium supplementation is advisable for anyone suffering from kidney stones or gallstones, or at risk of osteoporosis, as it can help to keep calcium within bones, rather than in soft tissues. Muscle cramping in different parts of the body is commonly caused by Magnesium deficiency.
Magnesium supplementation is advisable for anyone suffering from kidney stones or gallstones, or at risk of brittle or porous bones, as it can help to keep calcium within bones, rather than in soft tissues. Muscle cramping in different parts of the body is commonly caused by a Calcium and Magnesium imbalance.
Because Magnesium has an overall relaxing effect on the nervous system it can also be helpful in anxiety, depression and irritability.
Magnesium deficiency has been implicated in cases of severe Pre-Menstrual Syndrome. Magnesium along with Vitamin B6 may help to ease breast tenderness, weight gain and cravings associated with PMS. Magnesium supplementation is recommended for those suffering from fatigue, including Chronic Fatigue.
