This is an advanced broad-spectrum total magnesium formula providing 300mg of elemental magnesium per capsule. Nutra-Life Magnesium contains Chelate, as well as Orotate, Phosphate and Oxide forms of magnesium to maximise absorption and help maintain levels of this important mineral in the body.
Magnesium is one of the four minerals (Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium and Potassium) needed for muscular and nerve response functions within the body. Calcium is required for muscular contraction, while magnesium is needed for relaxing muscle fibres. Low levels of magnesium may be associated with muscle tremors, cramps and other problems and it is an essential cofactor in the functions of the Vitamin B complex, growth, energy and protein metabolism.
What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is the 4th most abundant mineral in the body, where it exists primarily in bone. It forms a bridge with Calcium and proteins to stiffen the structure, and the remainder lies in tissues in the muscle and soft tissues. Magnesium is an essential component of over 300 essential enzymatic reactions and plays an integral part in every major biological process in the body. In addition, Magnesium aids the processes of nerve conduction, regulating blood vessel wall tone, and nerve and muscle function. Demand for Magnesium increases during stress, nervous tension and anxiety, is important for maintaining bone density and healthy heart function.
Magnesium supplements, like Nutra-Life Magnesium Complete, are beneficial in assisting the management of PMT and cramps, hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar), and other conditions assoiciated with magnesium deficiency or loss including some heart problems, sleeplessness and digestive problems and diarrhoea.
Magnesium is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies. Common signs and symptoms relating to the musculoskeletal system include tense muscles, twitches, muscle soreness/weakness, cramps, spasms and tension headaches. Symptoms involving impaired smooth muscle contraction can include constipation and menstrual cramps, and cardiovascular symptoms may involve high blood pressure and palpitations. Anxiety, restless sleep and depression are common signs affecting the nervous system, and other general symptoms include breast tenderness and carbohydrate/sweet cravings, especially for chocolate. This mineral is great for use during times of stress, nervous tension and allows you to relax your body.
Consuming high levels of caffeine, alcohol, sugar, sodium or soft drinks increases the risk of Magnesium deficiency. Those suffering from PMS or prolonged stress, and individuals taking certain medications including diuretics, corticosteroids, antibiotics and oral contraceptives can be low in Magnesium. Pregnancy and lactation increase the need for Magnesium.

Magnesium and Sleep
Magnesium is a mineral that offers many benefits, including relaxation and a deeper sleep. This mineral has a mild tranquilising effect, due to its effect as a GABA agonist and its role in supporting the natural synthesis of melatonin in the pineal gland in the brain. Magnesium supplements have demonstrated sleep-quality enhancing effects in clinical trials, as reported in the Journal of Research in Medical Sciences in 2012.
