Bio-Magnesium Pharma Nord – 60 Tablets
The average human body contains just one ounce of magnesium, but this small amount is vital to a number of important bodily functions. Many people do not have adequate stores of magnesium, often because they rely heavily on processed food, which contains very little of this mineral. The mechanisms of how magnesium works are complex and varied depending on what it is being used for.
However, it plays a vital part in over 600 biochemical pathways in the body. Research has indicated that Magnesium is beneficial for the prevention of heart disease. The mineral appears to lower blood pressure and has been found to aid recovery after a heart attack by inhibiting blood clots, widening arteries, and normalizing dangerous arrhythmias. Magnesium has also been shown to be involved in energy production, nerve function, and bone and teeth formation.
Magnesium relaxes muscles and so is used for sports injuries and fibromyalgia, and to ease PMS and menstrual cramps. In addition, magnesium expands airways, which aids in conditions of asthma or bronchitis.
Studies have found that migraine sufferers tend to have lower magnesium levels than healthy people. Magnesium is frequently used as the first line of attack, or in combination with other migraine treatments. Taking one tablet of Bio-Magnesium (equivalent to 200 mg) per day is recommended for general well-being. Taking two tablets per day has been shown to give a therapeutic benefit.
Magnesium is available in many different forms, often presented singly. Bio-Magnesium contains three forms, the oxide, hydroxide and carbonate forms of magnesium, which give greater bioavailability and therefore, benefit to the body. There are many scientific papers that show the beneficial effects of Bio-Magnesium. There are no known contra-indications for Bio-Magnesium.
