Magnesium is one of the body’s most important minerals. In fact, it’s essential for over 300 different biochemical reactions1 in the body.2

Magnesium is a major factor in relaxing the smooth muscles within the blood vessels, thereby reducing peripheral vascular resistance and promoting a healthy cardiovascular system.3-6 Magnesium also affects circulating levels of norepinephrine and the synthesis of serotonin and nitric oxide.7-9

Magnesium positively influences the bone mineral matrix and its ability to metabolize minerals needed for repair and rebuilding.10,11 Scientific literature documents the need for a number of minerals, including calcium and magnesium, to help maintain strong, healthy bones.

Moreover, there is evidence that dietary magnesium intake and supplementation improves the metabolic profile.12-14 Magnesium has been shown to beneficially impact insulin resistance, serum lipid profiles, promote a healthy inflammatory response, support healthy endothelial function, protect against oxidative stress, and more.15-16
