Magnesium - 100 mg (magnesiumcitrate)
Good quality vitamins are of great importance, even more so in the time of a pandemic. Vitals has been a supplier of vitamins to Sri Sri Ayurveda for several years now.
Vitals vitamins are of high quality and consist of the best absorbable forms available. Where possible the biologically active bodily forms. Sri Sri Ayurveda has chosen for Vitals vitamins because they meet the highest quality requirements. Vitals focuses on high and safe dosages as used in many studies, and on combinations where the dosages of the individual ingredients are well matched. The capsules are of vegetable origin, sometimes supplemented with natural additives from rice.
Magnesium (citrate) 100 mg
- easily absorbable, organic mineral compound
- in a vegetable capsule supplemented with additives from a natural source
- easy to swallow
- suitable for vegetarians and vegans
This product contains 100 mg of magnesium in the easily absorbable, organic form of magnesium citrate. Many products with magnesium are in tablet form because more fits. And those tablets are often large because magnesium takes up a lot of space. Not everyone likes to use such large tablets. Vitals therefore supplies this product in the form of a capsule which is easier to swallow. If desired, the capsule can also be opened to mix the contents.
The capsule shell consists of pullulan, which is made from cassava (an edible root tuber, also called manioc). Also used in the capsule are additives from rice, necessary to fill the capsule properly.
How magnesium works in the body
The body contains about 21 to 28 grams of magnesium. Less than 1% circulates in the blood, about 20% is in the muscles, 20% in other soft tissues and the liver, and about 60% is built into the bones and teeth. Magnesium is therefore good for the muscles and important for the maintenance of strong bones and teeth. Furthermore, it is involved in more than 300 enzymatic processes. For example, magnesium is an important co-factor for enzymes involved in protein synthesis (the process by which proteins are made from DNA). And it contributes to a good electrolyte balance because it is a co-factor for many enzymes that are involved in maintaining an electrical potential across the cell membrane. (Cells - especially nerve and muscle cells - use the electrical charge of electrolytes to conduct electrical impulses to and from other cells, such as nerve impulses or muscle contractions.) In this way, magnesium is involved in nerve conduction and muscle contraction, so it is important for muscle function, including the heart muscle. In addition, an inadequate magnesium intake can lead to fatigue. In this case, magnesium can help to get fit again. It helps release energy from fats, carbohydrates and proteins and thus supports energy levels. It is also important for brain and nerve functions that determine aspects such as concentration, memory and mood. And it contributes to normal cell division and the production of cells and tissues.
