Magnesium, Magnesium glycine
Magnesium is an essential mineral and nutrient required by the human body for proper functioning. It is essential in that it must be derived from food, and cannot be synthesized by the body. Magnesium has hundreds of documented uses, and is commonly used to relax muscles, clear the intestines, reduce anxiety, relax spasms, lower blood pressure, and to correct mineral deficiencies, which is somewhat common, as studies show magnesium is commonly found at below average levels, even in developed nations.
Recommended amount per dose is 250-500 mg per day, or 1/2 to a full size '00' capsule. Magnesium has a laxative effect in higher doses. Do not consume without an accurate mg scale.
Magnesium is the second most prevalent electrolyte in the human body and is essential for over 300 biological processes. The important interaction between phosphate and magnesium ions makes magnesium essential to the basic nucleic acid chemistry of all cells of all known living organisms. More than 300 enzymes require magnesium ions for their catalytic action, including all enzymes using or synthesizing ATP and those that use other nucleotides to synthesize DNA and RNA. The ATP molecule is normally found in a chelate with a magnesium ion. Spices, nuts, cereals, cocoa and vegetables are rich sources of magnesium. Green leafy vegetables such as spinach are also rich in magnesium.
Overdoses of magnesium can cause a laxative effect due to the relaxing of muscles in the intestinal tract. Do not consume without knowing an accurate dosage. A milligram scale is highly recommended.
