Magnesium citrate Fitosofia
Our Magnesium citrate is available in the format in bipartite tablets. Magnesium citrate tastes good and is easily absorbed by the body. Since citric acid is a laxative, magnesium citrate is useful in cases of constipation and intestinal purification because it gently stimulates the slow intestine. It is a great choice for individuals with rectal or colon problems, but not suitable for those with diarrhea. Magnesium citrate has also been studied to prevent kidney stones from forming.
Magnesium citrate is indicated for people undergoing periods of prolonged stress, nervousness and anxiety; for athletes and the elderly. It can be taken to combat fatigue, to assist night rest by promoting relaxation, to combat muscle cramps, premenstrual syndrome and during menopause, to oppose osteoporosis and in the case of excessive sweating.
Magnesium is also suitable for those who suffer from palpitations, tremors, irritability, especially in the case of alcohol abuse; it is also suitable for preventing uterine contractions in pregnancy, but also as a preventive treatment against kidney stones and atherosclerosis. It can also be used to combat hair loss, especially when associated with stress and to prevent tooth decay.
Properties of Magnesium in the body
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in our body, essential for a proper functioning of the central and peripheral nervous system, muscles and the enzymatic system responsible for energy production (phosphorylation reactions in which ATP is involved). In nature it is present in hazelnuts, legumes, whole grains, green vegetables and bananas.
The greatest amount of Magnesium is found in the cells, where activates the enzymes necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates and amino acids. By counteracting the stimulating effect of calcium, Magnesium plays an important role in neuromuscular contractions. It also helps to regulate theacid-alkaline balance body.
Magnesium enters the body's constitution, and it is essential for the strength of bones and teeth. Magnesium is well absorbed in the intestine and is eliminated mainly in the urine, but also in the faeces and sweat. The latter path can become relevant during intense and prolonged sporting activity or in the case of abuse of saunas.
The most interesting characteristic of Magnesium is certainly that of regulate the fluidity of the cell wall and their permeability to minerals especially to calcium, sodium, potassium with important consequences for nerve conduction and muscle contraction.
Causes of magnesium deficiency
A magnesium deficiency can occur for several reasons, in all these cases it is advisable to improve your diet and supplement it with 1 tablet a day of magnesium citrate:
- Excess physical or mental stress causes a greater consumption of Magnesium.
- Alcohol causes a greater elimination of Magnesium in the urine and reduces its absorption, favoring the alteration of the intestinal bacterial flora.
- A diet rich in sweets can reduce the absorption of the mineral.
- A diet rich in protein but low in green vegetables, legumes, nuts and whole grains is low in Magnesium.
- High intake of isolated minerals, such as calcium, can cause magnesium deficiency.
Symptoms of Magnesium Deficiency
Given its biological importance, it is understandable that its deficiency can cause a wide range of symptoms.
Magnesium deficiency causes a tetany caused by aimpaired neuromuscular transmission. Magnesium ions are antagonists to those of calcium, favoring the depression of the central and peripheral nervous system: a lowering of Magnesium values (with normal calcium) would increase the production of acetylcholine, also decreasing the speed of hydrolysis with an increase in neuromuscular irritability and nervous disorders (irritability, difficulty in correlating information, changes in the wake / sleep rhythm).
Other frequent manifestations in case of deficiencies can be cardiac (palpitations, extrasystoles, precordialgia), vascular (hot flashes); neurological (mainly nuchal tension headache, vertigo) and gastrointestinal (gastric cramps, spastic colitis, impaired motility of the biliary tract).
