Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for good health; it’s needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, things like:
• maintaining normal muscle and nerve functions
• supporting healthy immune system
• keeping bones strong
• Helps regulate blood sugar levels
• promotes normal blood pressure
• Helps manage disorders (i.e hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes)
6 BENEFITS OF TAKING THE RIGHT MAGNESIUM
Maintain your healthy magnesium levels daily with a magnesium bisglycinate, as most food sources have become drastically reduced in bioavailable magnesium over the past few decades due to our modern farming methods. A magnesium bound to glycine is best, which doesn’t depend on stomach acid for proper absorption.
WORKS WITH CALCIUM
I call it the gatekeeper for calcium. It’s very important to take magnesium in the morning and calcium in the evening, as it goes into the bones while we’re sleeping. The mistake many people make is taking the two together in one supplement, where the magnesium and calcium actually compete for cellular absorption.
THE ANTI-AGE MINERAL
I call Magnesium the anti-aging mineral because, as the gatekeeper for calcium, it prevents too much calcium from absorbing into the cells. Too much calcium can make the cells rigid and can stop the detoxification process.
It’s a natural builder for collagen. Collagen is important to keep the skin looking healthy. With age, collagen production slows, the skin gets thinner and begins to sag and wrinkle. Hair becomes lifeless and joints become less elastic.
VITAMIN D ABSORPTION
Magnesium also helps with our vitamin D absorption which is a cornerstone of good health.
