Uses For Magnesium (powder)
Nutrient Utilization: Magnesium activates the enzymes necessary for a number of physiological functions, including the metabolism of macronutrients, energy production and the utilization of most vitamins and minerals.*
Bone Health: Magnesium is an essential bone matrix mineral that promotes healthy bone metabolism. A trial involving 2,038 older adults indicated that higher intakes of magnesium were positively associated with bone mineralization for certain individuals.*
Cardiovascular Support: Magnesium provides broad-spectrum cardiovascular support, including arterial function, endothelial function, C-reactive protein metabolism and lipid metabolism. A meta-analysis of 20 randomized trials suggests that it also promotes healthy systolic and diastolic function. In addition, magnesium supports healthy glucose metabolism. In one 15-year study involving 4,637 young adults, higher intakes of magnesium were associated with healthy cardiovascular function and glucose utilization. Magnesium also plays important roles in muscle function, mood and calming, and cranial vessel comfort.*
