Magnesium (Citrate) Benefits

Magnesium is required as a co-factor in hundreds of enzymatic processes within cells.1 It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, encourages healthy heart rhythm, promotes healthy cardiovascular function, supports a healthy immune system and supports strong bones.
Magnesium also helps maintain blood sugar and blood pressure levels already within normal range, and it’s known to be involved in promoting energy metabolism and protein synthesis.2-4
For a healthy cardiovascular system
Magnesium is a major factor in helping relax the smooth muscles within the blood vessels, thereby maintaining healthy peripheral vascular resistance and promoting a healthy cardiovascular system.5,6 Magnesium also supports circulating levels of norepinephrine, serotonin signaling and blood vessel dilation.7-9
For healthy bones
Magnesium positively influences the bone mineral matrix and bone repair and rebuilding.10,11 Scientific literature documents the need for a wide range of minerals, including calcium and magnesium, that are vital to maintaining strong, healthy bones.
Additional magnesium benefits
Moreover, there is strong evidence that dietary magnesium intake and supplementation supports the metabolic profile.12,13 Magnesium has been shown to beneficially support insulin resistance, serum lipid profiles, a healthy inflammatory response, endothelial function, oxidative stress and platelet aggregability.14,15,16
The typical dose of elemental magnesium is 100 to 300 mg a day. Supplemental doses in the range of 300 mg daily have been shown to help maintain already healthy blood pressure.17
