Health benefits of Magnesium

The busy lifestyles - i.e. working longer hours, pressures at home/work, studying for long hours - that many of us lead invariably leads to increases in stress levels which can have many affects on our bodies including sleeplessness, loss of appetite etc.

One vital mineral that is essential to our well-being is magnesium.

Magnesium is a shock-absorber thus helping to prevent the body from experiencing excessive stress. Besides this benefit, it is also vital to hundreds of enzyme reactions and has more health benefits attributed to it than any other mineral!

Other health benefits of magnesium include:

  • Helping the body absorb calcium and also plays an important role in the strength and formation of teeth and bones
  • Helping stabilise the rhythm and prevention of abnormal blood clotting of the heart
  • Maintaining healthy blood pressure levels
  • Relieving stiff muscles.

Despite all these beneficial properties, many people do not maintain adequate levels of magnesium. For this reason, taking magnesium supplements in one's diet is very important.

There are many over the counter magnesium supplements that you can buy and one of them is in the form of magnesium citramate capsules. Studies show that mineral citrates have superior absorption thus magnesium is better absorbed in citrate form. Available as vegetarian capsules, magnesium citramate typically contains 150mg of magnesium per capsule and the recommended dosage is between one to two tablets before bedtime.

For best results and/or to see what works best for you, please consult your health care professional before adding any supplements to your existing diet.
