Magnesium is an essential nutrient that takes part in a number of physiological processes. It aids in muscle relaxation, blood clotting, and synthesis of ATP, which supplies the body's energy. It takes part in more than three hundred metabolic and enzyme reactions. Magnesium helps to ensure the electrical stability of cells, the maintenance of cell membranes, and the regulation of vascular health.
Magnesium is interlocked with calcium, where one of these minerals helps to control the activity of the other. Because of its ability to temper calcium's activity, magnesium has been called nature's calcium channel blocker. After potassium, magnesium is the second most abundant electrolyte within the cell.
What is magnesium? Magnesium is an essential mineral in human nutrition with a wide range of functions. It is involved in more than three hundred metabolic activities, where it is necessary for every major biological process, including the production of cellular energy and the synthesis of nucleic acids and proteins. It is also important for the electrical stability of cells, where it takes part in muscle contraction and the regulation of vascular health.
What is magnesium used for? Magnesium supplementation is used to bridge the gap between dietary intake and physiological requirements for this mineral. It is biologically locked to calcium and helps regulate the intracellular flow of calcium ions.
What is the recommended dose? Take one or more tablets a day with or without food, or as directed by your healthcare provider.
What are the side effects of magnesium? Magnesium is contraindicated for those with renal failure or myasthenia gravis. Laxation is the most common side effect in doses higher than those recommended.
What are Liquid Minerals used for? Minerals are essential, but are depleted in most people, probably because of today's over-fertilized, over-pesticized farming. Since heavy metals (“bad minerals”), such as Mercury, lead, cadmium, etc., are more prevalent in our society than ever before, it is believed that the intake of “good minerals” will help remove those toxins (“bad minerals”).
One mineral can, and will, displace another with the same ionic value. By taking good minerals, we help displace bad minerals & mobilize them out of the body. It's a double nutritional hit: adding needed minerals and detoxing at the same time.
Why are your Liquid Minerals in liquid form? Minerals taken in liquid form are more readily absorbed in the body. Using the BodyBio® Mineral Taste Test Kit gives you the ability to taste them and then take only the ones you need.
Is the dosage listed on each bottle suitable for a child? Yes, however if the child is taking other supplements or medications, we recommend speaking with a health care practitioner. Since the dosage is measured in drops, the dosage is easily adjustable.
Why do your Liquid Minerals need to be taken with Vitamin C? How much Vitamin C is needed? A pinch of Vitamin C is added to our Liquid Minerals because it helps to make the minerals more bio-available to the body.
Are your liquid minerals Ionic or Colloidal? Why-what is the difference? E-Lyte Liquid minerals are ionic. Ionic minerals dissolve in aqueous solution (water), while colloidal minerals are suspended in aqueous solution.
Are there any side effects from taking Liquid Minerals? None have ever been reported to us.
Can your Liquid Minerals be taken on an empty stomach? They can be taken on an empty stomach.
Magnesium Citrate supplements the average diet with this vital nutrient. While this macro-mineral is easily obtained from many foods, magnesium deficiencies are extremely common for many Americans. Alcohol consumption, the presence of fluoride, and the consumption of certain foods either increase our need for magnesium, or decrease its absorption. Magnesium is not only one of the key nutrients required in both calcium utilization and protein synthesis, but it also plays a tremendous role in virtually every enzymatic reaction in our body.
Magnesium Glycinate helps convert carbohydrates, protein, and fats to energy, acts as a catalyst in thousands of enzymatic processes, regulates and maintains vascular tone, helps prevent calcification of soft tissue, and is critical to proper bone formation. It regulates calcium and potassium metabolism, facilitates muscle constriction and relaxation, and assists in nerve transmission and conduction. For optimal absorption, this formulation uses magnesium reacted with amino acid glycine to create a compound that is highly bioavailable and well tolerated by even the most sensitive individuals
