Magnesium Caps

Many Americans do not obtain adequate amounts of magnesium in their diets.83

Magnesium is one of the body’s most important minerals. It is required as a cofactor in hundreds of enzymatic processes within cells.16 It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, promotes healthy cardiovascular function, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps maintain blood sugar and blood pressure levels already within normal range, and it is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.17,18

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.19-21 Magnesium also affects circulating levels of norepinephrine and the synthesis of serotonin and nitric oxide.22-24

Magnesium positively influences the bone mineral matrix and its ability to metabolize minerals needed for repair and rebuilding.25,26 Scientific literature documents the need for a wide range of minerals, including calcium and magnesium, that are vital to maintaining strong, healthy bones.

Moreover, there is strong evidence that dietary magnesium intake and supplementation improves the metabolic profile.86-88 Magnesium has been shown to beneficially impact insulin resistance, serum lipid profiles, inflammation, endothelial function, oxidative stress and platelet aggregability.89

Since magnesium is so inexpensive, everyone should consider supplementing with at least 500 mg of magnesium daily.

Magnesium Caps provides one of the highest concentrations of elemental magnesium per capsule available on the market.

      Comments about Life Extension Magnesium Caps, 500 mg 100 vegetarian capsules:

      All things considered, this is the best magnesium product for non-specific use. After all, with 12 neutritional mg compounds to deal with, this product provides 5. What can be said? An excellent choice for general nutritional enhancement; however, those who have specific health issues will have to dig much deeper into this complex subject. I've been using it for many years.

        Comments about Life Extension Magnesium Caps, 500 mg 100 vegetarian capsules:

        I think this is a great supplement. Used to take oxide forms from the drug store and they were so harsh. Never knew from one bottle to the next, if I would experience bathroom effects. This product is consistent and does not cause bathroom effects. I realize this product includes the oxide form but it's a combination of forms. I feel that I must be absorbing it since it doesn't flush right through. I pop an extra one when I have a head ache or have an "irregular" occurrence, but the real benefits are the best reason to take magnesium. The price is good and I think the quality is much better. I keep extra on hand to share the news. LOL, not allowed to use the word for "bathroom effects".

          Why put MgO in it?

            Cons

            • Ineffective
            • It's Got Mgo In It

              Comments about Life Extension Magnesium Caps, 500 mg 100 vegetarian capsules:

              My understanding is that MgO is cheap and poorly absorbed, so I don't use or recommend this product. If I'm mistaken, I'd like to know that.
