Magnesium Hi-Zorb contains both chelate and glycinate forms of this mineral, both of which absorb with a high efficiency. Magnesium helps to prevent deficiencies and supports muscular and nervous system functions and a healthy insulin signal.
Research has shown in the past that even though most Australian's have an abundance of food available to them, 50% of men and 39% of women still eat less than the Recommended Daily Intake for this nutrient 1. This is due to reduced levels of this mineral in plants, poor food choices (refined and processed food) and a high need for this nutrient due to a prevalence of chronic disease 2.
Magnesium is a crucial mineral the performs literally hundreds of activities in the human body. It even plays a role in keeping insulin functioning properly. Evidence has shown that low magnesium levels negatively impact insulin resistance, which is a precursor to type II diabetes and some cases of obesity 3.
Magnesium Hi-Zorb may therefore be helpful for managing obesity when there is poor blood sugar control. Magnesium is often referred to as an anti-stress mineral due to the fact that it can help keep us cool, calm and collected. In fact, in anxiety-prone individuals, magnesium supplementation has been shown to offer a protective effect 4. This is likely due to it's ability to improve GABA signalling in the brain 5.
GABA is the most powerful calming neurotransmitter in the brain. Magnesium may also assist with quality sleep and help to keep muscles more relaxed, thus preventing cramps and spasms. Nutra-Life Magnesium Hi-Zorb is a versatile product delivering a mineral with broad-reaching biochemical effects and a long list of potential benefits, particularly in cases of inadequate intake.
