  • Magnesium is essential in the absorption of calcium, the primary mineral needed for bone strength. Low magnesium levels can increase the risk for osteoporosis characterised by fractures and stoop posture.
  • This formula can prevent magnesium deficiency (hypomagnesemia) when the diet does not contain the body’s daily magnesium requirement. Low levels of magnesium in the blood can cause muscle cramps, weakness, irritability, insomnia, and arrhythmias.
  • Magnesium can help women in effectively dealing with menstrual cramps and other symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome. Women with adequate magnesium from the diet or from supplements reported improvement in their menstrual symptoms such as headaches, bloating, dysmenorrhea, and mood swings.
  • In emerging studies, magnesium demonstrated potential in maintaining brain functions such as memory and learning. It can also potentially be used as a brain-boosting supplement in people with short term and long term memory loss due to ageing and medical conditions.
  • Magnesium is also critical in maintaining muscle tone especially for the most important muscle of the body – the heart. Cardiac arrhythmias or irregular heartbeats can occur in people who are calcium deficient.
  • Women who are diagnosed with pre-eclampsia during pregnancy can use Magnesium to help in stabilising blood pressure levels and prevention of eclampsia. 
  • The glycine component of this formula  can be good for the skin and brain while lysine can offer the immune support through increased antibodies production.

Magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals in the body involved in biochemical processes taking place in and outside the cells. It is essential to the manufacturing of enzymes and hormones, production of energy from cells, normal functioning of muscles and nerves, regularisation of heartbeat, and support of bone density. Because of these, adequate supply of magnesium is required for optimum functioning of the cardiovascular system, nervous system, muscular and skeletal system, reproductive system, and nervous system. The diet is the best source of magnesium, including dairy products and green leafy vegetables. However, there are certain medications and conditions where when in the body loses magnesium causing magnesium deficiency. Magnesium can be depleted if there is prolonged use of anti-asthma drugs, diuretics, cardiovascular medications, and digitalis preparations. Diabetics can also lose significant amount of magnesium in the urine. Women taking contraceptive pills and calcium supplements are also at risk for reduced magnesium levels. Stress is another factor to lowered serum magnesium levels. During these situations, the diet sometimes cannot replenish the lost magnesium which then leads to magnesium deficiency symptoms. Magnesium can also be supplied by supplements like Doctor's Best High Absorption Magnesium to correct potential deficiencies. This magnesium preparation offers a highly absorbable form of magnesium with the added benefits from the amino acids glycine and lysine.
