Magnesium Citrate 60's
This product is highly recommended.
Magnesium helps to regulate calcium transport and absorption. By stimulating the secretion of calcitonin, it aids the influx of calcium into bone and promotes optimal bone mineralization. Along with ATP, magnesium supports cellular energy production. It also promotes nerve and muscle function. This formulation offers Vitamin B6 to support the assimilation and activity of magnesium in the body.
Magnesium itself has a positive influence on insulin signalling and may help in reversing insulin resistance. Given that up to 50% of the US population has either pre diabetes or diabetes (both conditions of insulin resistance), there is a good chance you fall into this category. That means taking magnesium may help improve your insulin levels and ultimately lead to a state where weight loss is more easily achieved.
Magnesium citrate may help to increase cellular energy levels and ATP production via mitochondrial pathways. Studies have shown that adding magnesium may improve energy production during exercise resulting in longer and more sustained caloric burn. This change in energy production may be responsible for a reduction in symptoms of fatigue and indirectly lead to increased activity levels. Higher energy production = higher resting energy expenditure = more calories burned at rest. This benefit assumes that the person supplementing is deficient in magnesium, however. So taking magnesium if you have sufficient cellular and serum levels may not help with weight loss in this population.
Magnesium citrate helps to reduce total body water and stool through its laxative like effects on the GI tract. This improvement in regularity may also bring upon changes in your microbiome and microbiota which may have a positive effect on energy balance as well. Remember though that this benefit does not necessarily provide a reduction in total fat mass, which is what people want when they are looking for weight loss. The temporary loss in water weight may move the scale, but may not do much for the reduction in fat in your body. The combination of these benefits probably all contribute to weight loss that is seen in some patients who supplement with Magnesium citrate. Remember, for the best results it's necessary to combine magnesium supplementation with other lifestyle changes including diet, exercise and stress reduction.
Magnesium supplementation has been shown in many studies to help improve both the depth and quality of sleep.
This is important for several reasons:
A general lack of sleep has been associated with multiple medical conditions including an increased risk of developing diabetes, a reduction in immune system function and an increased levels of inflammatory markers. What's important is that
