TwinLab Magnesium Caps - 200ea
The average adult human body contains approximately 24 grams of magnesium; this mineral is crucial to the proper function of many systems in the body, particularly the skeletal system where over 60% of the body’s magnesium is stored. The Center for Disease Control estimates that only a little over 30% of Americans get the daily recommended dose of magnesium from dietary sources. Twinlab’s Magnesium capsules dietary supplements can supply the missing magnesium, helping support the bone health as well as skeletal muscle, and contributing to the prevention of osteoporosis, asthma and diabetes, among others. Dietary sources of magnesium include green leafy vegetables such as spinach and other chlorophyll rich plants, as well as spices, coffee, cocoa, nuts and tea; since such a small proportion of people actually get their recommended daily dose of magnesium, supplementation may be recommended in most cases.
How do Magnesium Caps work?
Magnesium is know to play a role in over 300 biochemical reactions in the human body, and is of particular importance to bone health, as it is used to activate calcium and Vitamin D, essential components of a healthy skeletal system. Moreover, magnesium, like that contained in Twinlab’s Magnesium Caps supports both the muscular system and the central nervous system by promoting the efficient transmission of nerve impulses to muscles. Magnesium also supports intra-cellular energy creation by enhancing carbohydrate metabolism (the breakdown of sugars into usable energy).
Twinlab’s Magnesium capsules dietary supplements are also surmised to support protein synthesis, and are considered as a potential treatment for Restless Leg Syndrome. Magnesium deficiency is known to cause premature muscle weakness and fatigue as well as an irregular heartbeat, and because of its role in carbohydrate metabolism, may contribute to insulin resistance, a precursor to diabetes.
Each serving of Twinlab’s Magnesium capsules contain 400 milligrams of Magnesium, derived from magnesium oxide, or 100% of the daily recommended dose; the quick-dissolving capsule format increases the magnesium’s bioavailability. Take one capsule per day, or as recommended by a health care professional. Excess magnesium is easily filtered and eliminated through the kidneys. Twinlab’s Magnesium caps contain no artificial flavors, sweeteners or colors.
