Vitus Magnesium Powder contains Magnesium Hydroxide, providing plenty of elemental magnesium at 40.4% by weight. Unlike most magnesium supplements, Vitus Magnesium Powder is sourced naturally from the pure ocean waters of Iceland. Magnesium is one of he most important micronutrients for the human body, 99% of which is found in bone tissue, muscle and other soft tissues1. This essential mineral is involved in over three-hundred enymatic reation. When we talk about enzymatic reactions, we are not necessarily talkng about the digestion of food. Enzymes are manufactured and used throughout the entire body for thousands of chemical reactions that keep us alive. For instance, enzymes are involved in ATP or energy production, and they are also involved in synthesizing the neurotransmitters in our brains that help to keep us focused. Without enzymes, we would not last very long at all! The fact that Magnesium is involved in literally hundreds of these reactions, gives some indication as to its importance. 

 

Magnesium deficiency, and insuffiency (mild deficency), is quite common in Australia. Interestingly, the magnesium and general mineral content of food has declined over the past century due to depletion in soils. In addition, our magnesium needs have most likely increased, given that our lifestyles have become increasingly "busy". Important to note also is that to properly assess the level of magnesium in our bodies, we actually need to check the level inside of the cell, as this is where 99% or more is located. 

 

So, you might be thinking at this point, "What are some of the uses of Magnesium in the body?" Well, we don't have time to go through the 300+ uses, and your interest may wane once we hit the twenty or thirty mark! However, let's run through a few of the basics. Magnesium is helpful for regulating muscle contractility. This means, it can induce relaxation of muscle fibers, and is helpful for muscle spasms, twitches and cramps (including menstrual cramping). If you have ever had an eyelid twitch or muscle cramp, say in the leg, you will know exactly what this is like. In addition to this, Magnesium is also helpful for ATP (energy) production, helping to regulate normal levles of this important compound. Magnesium is also essential for insulin sensitivity, and helps glucose to find its way into the cell. Iin addition, this important mineral is also required for mental health as well, as it is required for the synthesis of multiple neurotransmitter in the brain. 

 

All in all, Vitus Magnesium Powder provides a natural alternative to other magnesium products, and is great for restoring your levels of this crucial nutrient.
