Magnesium Citrate Overview
Magnesium is an extremely important mineral to our bodies, with benefits ranging from energy production to bone strength. A single serving of NOW Magnesium Citrate gives you vital magnesium in a form that's very easy for your body to use. The mineral magnesium is actually very common in normal diets, but many people still suffer from magnesium deficiency. This happens because of other nutrients, like fluoride, certain foods, and alcohol use can increase how much magnesium we need.
Magnesium Citrate is easier for our bodies to use than forms found in other supplements. Getting enough magnesium helps your body make and use energy, utilize calcium to build bones, build proteins, and is essential in enzyme reactions throughout our bodies. Make sure nothing is keeping you from getting all the magnesium you need by supplementing your diet with NOW Magnesium Citrate.
Magnesium Citrate Description from Now
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.
