With a price as low as NOW is able to offer, you really don't have any reason to do without this crucial mineral. Magnesium is well-known for its importance to heart health, but it's indispensable for the health of most body structures (bones, hair, skin) and functions (enzyme, nerve and muscle function). Like many minerals, most people don't get enough magnesium in their diet, even if they have a goo diet, and even if they use a multivitamin. Your nutritional need for magnesium is substantial, from 75-1500 mg per day or more in some circumstances, so if you haven't been using a magnesium supplement at all, NOW Magnesium Caps are a very small investment that can make a very large nutritional impact on your health.
Magnesium is a mineral that is critical for energy production and metabolism, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and bone mineralization. It is a required cofactor for an estimated 300 enzymes. Among the reactions catalyzed by these enzymes are fatty acid synthesis, protein synthesis, and glucose metabolism. Magnesium status is also important for regulation of calcium balance through its effects on the parathyroid gland.
