Magnesium, the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, participates in about 300-350 enzymatic reactions in nearly all tissues. It is essential to the optimization of cardiovascular health, muscular and nerve function, bone health, energy and adrenal function, and health glucose metabolism.
Deficiency is common and can result from poor dietary intake, poor absorption, excessive losses through urine, stool, perspiration, or lactation, taking certain drugs, certain herbs, poor kidney function, excessive alcohol intake, and drinking mostly “soft” water can contribute to magnesium depletion as well. Albion’s TRAACS® magnesium lysinate glycinate is an excellent delivery system for magnesium, is resistant to competitive minerals, and does not weaken the action of vitamins.
