Benefits

As mentioned above, magnesium plays a critical role in many of the body’s functions. From regulating our heart beat to promoting proper function of our muscles, cells, and nerves.

Key Benefits

  • Helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function
  • Supports energy production
  • Supports enzyme function
  • Helps ensure proper sleep
  • Helps strengthen bone structure
  • Plays a role in calcification

Supports the Muscular System

Muscles need magnesium to function smoothly. Magnesium plays an integral role in neuromuscular signals and muscle contractions. If the body does not have enough magnesium, this can result in muscles going into spasms. With the support of magnesium, muscles can relax and contract at ease and enable the body to move around.

Helps Increase Energy

Magnesium assists the body in converting food into energy. ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is a vital energy storage molecule in the body, is activated by magnesium. This translates to suffering from fatigue more easily. Individuals with low levels of magnesium also result in athletes needing more oxygen to complete activities and higher heart rates.

Supports Enzyme Function for Digestion

Magnesium’s role is primarily regulatory. Magnesium ions regulate over 300 biochemical reactions in the body through their role as enzyme co-factors. It allows enzymes to function properly. Enzymes are the basis of the body’s ability to function while supporting life. Many of the necessary chemical reactions that the body carries out, such as the breakdown of sugars in the digestive system, can only be performed under extreme heat or acidity. Enzymes, however, neutralize stomach acid without damaging the body’s fragile tissues and organs and helps move stool through the intestines.

Heart Health Support

The heart is the most important organ in our body. It is what keeps us alive. It is also the place where the highest concentration of magnesium is located, specifically in the heart’s left ventricle. Working closely with calcium, magnesium helps regulate blood pressure. Magnesium plays a role in balancing electrolytes like sodium, potassium, and calcium necessary to maintain normal blood pressure and prevent hypertension.

Helps Ensure Proper Sleep

To fall asleep, there are certain internal requirements our body must meet. The most obvious is the relaxed state of our neuromuscular system. Magnesium is essential in relaxing our muscles, and preventing over-excitation of our nerves. By regulating our chemical messengers called neurotransmitters, magnesium prepares our brain and nerves for sleep, making it easier to get a good night sleep.

Aids Strengthening of Bones

Magnesium is an essential bone matrix mineral that promotes healthy bone metabolism. It influences activities of osteoblasts and osteoclasts. A trial also indicated that higher intakes of magnesium were positively associated with bone mineralization.

Regulates Calcium

Magnesium is crucial for regulating the amount of calcium in the blood and cells for electrical transmissions. Once calcium does its job, magnesium immediately intervenes and stops excess calcium from causing damage to the cells by way of calcification and hyper-excitability. Calcification in cells can cause diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, asthma and headache. Therefore, magnesium is a natural calcium channel blocker.

Magnesium for Athletes : Performance & Recovery

Magnesium is the fourth-most abundant mineral in the body, and is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions, making it crucial for  energy production, muscle function, heart health, protein synthesis and insulin metabolism. Optimal magnesium levels are critical in both the performance and recovery phase.

For Performance: Magnesium affects the conversion of glycogen to glucose. Without sufficient glucose, the body switches to an anaerobic metabolism resulting in a build up of lactic acid and associated muscle spasms and soreness. If you are low in Magnesium, you are more likely to feel fatigued and this will negatively impact your performance.

For Recovery: Magnesium helps muscle and nerve function, and a deficiency in Magnesium can result in muscle and nerve twitches, spasms, and cramping. Magnesium is naturally calming and allows your muscles to go from an contracted into a relaxed state, it reduces cortisol and promotes quality of sleep, further aiding and enhancing the recovery process.
