Magnesium is a mineral essential for the overall functioning of the body as it is involved in many biological processes. The first signs of low magnesium levels are muscle twitches (such as the classical eyelid twitch) or general muscle tightness, and fatigue.
Magnesium aspartate is a form of magnesium bound or “chelated” to an amino acid for rapid absorption and utilization in the body. Magnesium aspartate has the advantage that both parts (magnesium and aspartic acid) are involved in the Krebs’s cycle a key process in the production of cellular energy in the body. Energy is essential for every biological process that occurs in the body. Without sufficient energy cellular function slows down and waste products can build up inside the cells further contributing to muscle tightness, and fatigue.
Magnesium supplementation has been shown to improve cellular energy production and support muscle relaxation. Magnesium may be supportive in conditions associated with fatigue syndromes and muscle tension, tension in the head, the pre-menstrual period, and tiredness.
Magnesium needs to be balanced with calcium as they are both minerals essential for many biological processes in the body, calcium for muscle contraction and magnesium for muscle relaxation. They are known as the body’s relaxant minerals, calcium is needed for sleep onset and magnesium for sleep maintenance, together they help to calm and relax the mind, body and nerves.
If you are on cardiovascular, diuretic and blood pressure medication you may benefit from magnesium supplementation to support cellular energy production and to help relax blood vessels.
