Magnesium is an essential mineral that demands attention when it comes to health assessment, athletic performance and optimal functioning. It is required by virtually every cell in the body and it's vital in more than 300 metabolic processes that sustain basic human health and function including muscle contraction and relaxation, protein synthesis, nerve function, cardiac activity, blood pressure regulation, hormonal interactions, immunity, bone health and synthesis of proteins, fats and nucleic acids. Magnesium is also crucial for energy metabolism, to calm pain and inflammation, and to support healthy joint, bone, and muscle function. Disease states that have been associated with magnesium imbalances and deficiencies include migraines, diabetes, coronary heart disease, neuromuscular disorders, kidney diseases, asthma, premenstrual syndrome, and even obesity. There is emerging evidence that magnesium requirements are significantly elevated in athletes, and that performance might benefit from higher intakes. Aside from being used up in the production of energy, magnesium might also assist performance by reducing accumulation of lactic acid and reducing the perception of fatigue during strenuous exercise through its action on the nervous system. Magnesium plays an important role in protein biosynthesis, which is certainly applicable to athletes. It is necessary for the activation of amino acids which helps to create proteins. In other words, protein synthesis depends on optimal magnesium concentrations. It is hypothesized that low magnesium levels may negatively affect protein metabolism, and may result in diminished strength gains. Magnesium is also lost through sweat, so athletes training hard in hot and humid environments might further increase demands. No serious athlete can afford to overlook the benefits that magnesium brings to athletic performance and the recovery process. Research suggests that even a small shortfall in magnesium can lead to greatly reduced performance and stamina. Key Features Contains 400 mg of magnesium per serving (3 capsules per serving) Contains a combination of magnesium from amino acid chelate (64%), malate (26%), and citrate (10%) for easy digestibility Provides 222mg malic acid which is utilized to produce energy in the muscle cells to increase muscle stamina and endurance Vegetarian No Artificial Colors, No Artificial Flavors, No Preservatives, No Chemical Solvents, Yeast, Starch, or Gluten Function Supports / promotes muscle health and is vital for muscle contractions Essential for energy production and protein synthesis Supports nerve and heart function Essential in the formation of bones Helps to convert blood sugar into energy. Side-Effects/Contraindications Loose stools can be a side effect when too much magnesium is taken. This amount varies from individual to individual; most are able to tolerate 1000mg or more per day.
