Herbs of Gold Magnesium Forte is a potent blend of high bioavailability forms of magnesium, including glycinate, orotate, citrate and amino acid chelate. Each tablet provides an elemental dosage of 220 mg of magnesium. Magnesium is one of the most important micronutrients for the human body, and is involved in more biological functions than any other micronutrient.
Though research papers are few and far between with regards to the magnesium status of Australians, a study in 1991 showed that 50% of men and 39% of women consume less than the RDI for this nutrient each day 1. It would therefore be safe to assume that Magnesium status some 25-30 years later would be no better, given that the general quality of the western diet has not improved. The RDI is the most basic amount of a nutrient needed to prevent a deficiency disease. Measuring more optimal levels would no doubt indicate that many more people have suboptimal levels.
Magnesium Key Features
- Potent Bioavailable Supplement
- Assists with Muscular Relaxation
- Reduce Premenstrual Cramps and PMS
- Supports Heart Rhythm and Blood Pressure
- Maintain Energy Metabolism
Magnesium, like that found in this Herbs of Gold Magnesium product, is used for the prevention and management of a number of health conditions, as well as to supplement a low dietary intake. Magnesium supports energy metabolism, where it is involved in the generation of the universal energy source, ATP.
Furthermore, low magnesium status has been linked to increased subjective anxiety. This makes sense, given that magnesium supports the synthesis of a calming neurotransmitter called GABA 2. A recent clinical trial indicates that magnesium treatment for anxiety-prone individuals may be helpful in managing this condition 3.
Herbs of Gold Magnesium Forte has also been used to support a healthy cardiovascular system and to reduce the frequency of migraines. Yet one of the most common uses is to relieve muscular aches, cramps and spasms, as magnesium is essential for muscular relaxation.
This Herbs of Gold Magnesium product is a fantastic to assist with the maintenance of general wellbeing, particularly when the diet is low in magnesium rich foods.
