Magnesium Potassium Aspartate
Relaxes the skeletal muscles, normalizes the heartbeat and blood pressure, alleviates symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and is essential to good health. Approximately 50% of total body magnesium is found in bone. The other half is found predominantly inside cells of body tissues and organs. Decreased levels of magnesium have been shown to be related to high blood pressure, kidney stones, heart disease (especially heart attacks due to coronary artery spasm), fatigue and PMS.
Magnesium and Potassium facilitate energy production and are integral to the development and regeneration of ATP, the biochemical “battery” molecule that stores and releases the body’s energy supply. This leads to the importance of magnesium and potassium in patients with chronic fatigue symptoms. Note that it is important to use highly absorbable forms of these minerals like those found in Magnesium Potassium Vascular. Magnesium supplementation may also significantly increase energy levels, improve emotional state and reduce pain. It also has been shown to help decrease incidence and severity of “tender points” in patients with fibromyalgia.
Magnesium deficiency may also be a risk factor for osteoporosis because magnesium deficiency alters calcium metabolism and the hormones that regulate calcium. Magnesium and potassium are important for proper bone formation and maintenance.
Magnesium is also known to play a crucial role in the secretion and action of insulin. Researchers at Soochow University in China and the University of North Carolina reviewed 13 prospective studies that included a total of 536,318 participants. Study follow-up periods ranged from four to twenty years, during which 24,516 cases of diabetes were diagnosed. A 22% lower risk of diabetes was found for those whose intake of magnesium was highest compared to those whose consumption of the mineral was lowest. Each 100 milligram-per-day increase in magnesium was associated with a 14% lower risk of developing the disease. Further analysis revealed a more pronounced effect for the mineral among those whose body mass index was more than 25 kg/m.
Aspartate: A nonessential amino acid that may play a critical part of the enzyme in the liver that transfers nitrogen-containing amino acid groups, either in building new proteins and amino acids or in breaking down proteins and amino acids for energy and detoxifying the nitrogen in the form of urea.
