Electrically charged atoms or particles called ions (from the Greek word “to go”) are vital for maintaining the physiological processes that keep the body going. Because ions carry either a positive charge (cations) or a negative charge (anions) ionic minerals are efficiently absorbed because the attraction of opposites helps bring minerals across the gut lining into the bloodstream using less energy.
Sixty-six percent of our magnesium is stored in our bones and it is necessary for proper metabolism of calcium and Vitamin D both of which help build strong bones and healthy teeth. But magnesium has many more functions in our bodies. Magnesium is also necessary for heart, nerve and muscle function as well as the function of ATP and cellular energy. In addition, this important mineral is the catalyst for hundreds of enzyme reactions. But almost half of the people in the U.S. do not get adequate magnesium making them susceptible to muscle cramps, lethargy, migraines and sleep disturbances as well as more serious conditions like osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.
Magnesium Plus™ contains 300 mg of ionized magnesium per serving as well as other nutrients that promote healthy bones, teeth and more. Zinc and copper stimulate bone growth and healing of fractures. Zinc also reduces tooth decay and is important for immune function. Copper and silica help to maintain connective tissue including collagen. Potassium helps to balance sodium levels reducing the risk of osteoporosis. Boron is concentrated in bones and tooth enamel and it enhances absorption of calcium and Vitamin D. And finally, ionic trace minerals from seawater are included in Magnesium Plus. Although we don’t need them in large quantities, trace minerals are still essential.
Magnesium Plus also contains antioxidant Vitamin C, which is essential for collagen formation, adrenal, cardiovascular and immune function and absorption of folic acid, iron and other nutrients. Vitamin D is necessary for metabolizing minerals, for growth and immune function. Another antioxidant, beta-carotene, is necessary for bone, skin and eye health. Vitamins B-12, B-6 and folate are important B-complex nutrients that act as cofactors in many physiological processes including immune and nervous system function. They also work synergistically to control homocysteine, which has been linked to increased risk of cardiovascular disease as well as bone fractures in postmenopausal women.
Magnesium Plus is naturally sweetened with lo han and stevia and is an easy and delicious (raspberry lemonade flavor) way to get your minerals.
