Magnesium is a key mineral in human metabolism, and found in small to medium amounts in many of the World's Healthiest Foods. Vegetables (especially green leafy ones), nuts and seeds, and legumes are your best sources for magnesium.
Magnesium aspartate isthe magnesiumsalt of aspartic acid. It is a chelated mineral supplement. Safety studies in England concluded that magnesium aspartates demonstrate greater oral absorption and bioavailability compared to less soluble magnesium preparations such as magnesium oxide, magnesium hydroxide, magnesium carbonate and magnesium sulphate.
Role of Magnesium in Health Support
- Create and Maintain Bone Integrity About 50 to 60% of a person's magnesium is stored in the bone, and as such, it plays a key role in bone metabolism. Researchers have found that even a mild ongoing magnesium deficiency can lead to a significant amount of bone loss.
- Enable Energy Production
One critical task performed by our cells is energy production. This task is a complicated one and involves dozens of chemical reactions, all intimately related and flowing in a very special sequence. Unless these chemical reactions can take place in the exact needed order, we don't get the energy production that we need from our cells. Within this energy production sequence, magnesium plays an important role. Many of the chemical reactions cannot take place unless magnesium is present as "co-factor" for the enzymes that allow energy production to occur.
- Better Control of Inflammation
A diet low in magnesium has been linked to unwanted increases in the inflammatory process.
- Better Control of Blood Sugar
Magnesium is a co-factor for over 100 enzymes involved in the control of blood sugar and glucose metabolism. As such, low magnesium status would be expected to have wide-ranging adverse effects on blood sugar control.
