What is Magnesium Citrate?
Magnesium is an essential mineral that the body requires in order for it to perform over 300 natural biological and physiological processes internally. It helps to maintain muscle tissue, it promotes nerve health and function, it provides cardiovascular benefits, it boosts immunity, and much more besides. The mineral is essential, meaning that the body cannot produce it naturally, so it has to come in dietary and/or supplement form. Commonly, magnesium is found in whole foods including nuts, legumes, and especially in green leafy vegetables such as Kale and Spinach.
How does it work?
Magnesium Citrate works in a number of different ways in the body, because as mentioned, it plays a vital role in more than 300 natural processes. One way in which it works however, is that it assists with the uptake of other important minerals, including calcium, which is vital for bone health and density. Studies have found that magnesium, once consumed, can allow the body to absorb more calcium and other important minerals than it would have ordinarily have been able to absorb. This in turn can help to strengthen the bones and to prevent conditions such as osteoporosis. Basically however, each and every single major internal organ within the human body, requires magnesium in order for it to function as it should. The heart for example, can benefit hugely as the mineral has been found to slow and stabilize the heart rate, helping to prevent potential health complications such as cardiac arrhythmia. This is why people who are suffering with cardiovascular conditions often supplement daily with magnesium. From a different perspective however, magnesium also helps the body to make use of carbohydrates more efficiently, so it can also help to stabilize blood glucose levels as it controls and regulates glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity.
What are the benefits of using Magnesium supplements?
Some of the primary benefits of magnesium supplements include the following:
Improved overall health
The main reason why people take magnesium supplements is simply the fact that they promote overall general health and well-being. As mentioned, as the mineral plays a vital role in more than 300 natural internal processes, it obviously helps to ensure that the body functions healthily and effectively as it should.
Another very good reason to supplement with magnesium however, is the fact that it can help to ensure that blood sugar levels remain stable. Magnesium Citrate assists with the metabolism of carbohydrates, allowing the body to utilize them more effectively, meaning that blood sugar levels remain stable, reducing the amounts of insulin required. This can not only be beneficial for people trying to avoid getting diabetes, but it can also help diabetics to better manage their condition.
Magnesium is also essential for the proper functioning of muscle tissue, as it helps to ensure that the muscles contract and function as they should. If a person often experiences muscle spasms, even minor, this is actually a tell-tale sign of a magnesium deficiency. The magnesium also better allows protein to be utilized by the muscles, and as protein is vital for muscle growth and repair, a magnesium deficiency could actually make it much tougher for a person to build muscle.
Other benefits include:
- Improved immunity
