Magnesium is a crucial element in your body that helps keep your body functioning optimally. A major mineral that's found in your bones and muscles, it plays a role in more than 300 biochemical reactions, including muscle and nerve function, and glucose metabolism.*
As we get older, we may become more mindful about keeping our bones strong and healthy. Magnesium plays a role in optimal bone support.* At least half of the magnesium in your body lives in your bones, where it helps regulate calcium and is essential to mineralization.*
But beyond promoting healthy bones, Magnesium supports healthy muscles as well.* It is needed for many reactions in the muscle, and plays a role in muscle contractions and nerve impulses.*
Findings in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey suggests that the diets of many Americans do not provide the recommended amounts of Magnesium. While foods such as spinach, black beans and potatoes are rich in Magnesium, older adults tend to take in less, and its absorption also decreases. A Magnesium supplement may help support your healthy lifestyle.*
Adequate magnesium intake is needed to support the contraction and relaxation of muscles and helps with leg cramps. * Leg cramps can occur occasionally among adults with inadequate intake.*ⱡ
Recommended dosage of Magnesium 500 mg Tablet, take one tablet daily, preferably with a meal.
ⱡAccording to the National Institutes of Health, magnesium intake by most American adults is lower than recommended.
