Magnesium helps reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Magnesium has numerous vital metabolic and structural roles in the body.
It is a component of bones and teeth, contributes to healthy muscle and nervous system function, promotes physical strength and endurance, is a critical mineral required for several hundred enzymatic reactions, assists calcium and potassium uptake, assists glycolysis and aids many biosynthetic processes.
The energy produced in the mitochondria (energy centres) of cells (ATP) must be bound to a magnesium ion in order to be biologically active. Sufficient magnesium is, therefore, essential for youthful energy levels. Magnesium is essential also to the permeability of the mitochondrial membrane and to the transfer and utilisation of energy.
Stress, alcohol, caffeine and sugar all contribute to magnesium loss. It is possible that some of the symptoms related to an alcoholic hangover are in part due to magnesium depletion.
Magnesium is considered the anti-stress mineral. It is a natural tranquiliser, as it functions to relax skeletal muscles as well as smooth muscles of blood vessels and the gastrointestinal tract. It is considered important in preventing coronary artery spasm, a significant cause of heart attacks.
Magnesium activates enzymes that are important for protein and carbohydrate metabolism. It is also needed in DNA production and function. Magnesium modulates the electrical potential across cell membranes, which allows nutrients to pass back and forth. Without the relaxing effects of magnesium, the muscles of blood vessels would contract and peripheral vascular circulation would be compromised, leading to hypertension and further reduction of nutrient delivery to the cell.
By increasing calcium solubility, especially in the urine, magnesium can help prevent kidney stones. Magnesium is also helpful in preventing other tissue and blood vessel calcification (and thereby atherosclerosis), as well as some problems of the teeth, including cavities.
Magnesium has been used successfully to treat the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. Menstrual cramps, irritability, fatigue, depression and water retention have been lessened with magnesium.
The many enzyme systems that require magnesium help restore energy levels and eliminate tiredness and fatigue. Thanks to this function and its nerve and muscle support, magnesium may also be helpful for nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, depression and muscle cramps.Buy Lumity
