Gadomag+

$3.90

GadoMag+ is highly bioavailable form of magnesium, a mineral essential nutrient responsible for over 300 chemical reactions in the body. One of its important roles is energy production,  generating ATP, the body’s energy “currency: molecule, as well as messaging between nerves, muscle relaxation. It is also critical in the process that allows the brain to relax and sleep. With a good night’s sleep and a full tank of ATP, GadoMag+ can help to keep you energized. Magnesium supports calcium absorption, and vitamin D metabolism for improved bone density.

Gadomag+ is an organic, chelated magnesium citrate compound, which contains a highly bioavailable form of magnesium.  Magnesium is the fourth most common mineral in the body and involved most biological processes.  For instance, magnesium helps maintain proper muscle and nerve function.  It is a positively charged ion, so when it comes in contact with the negatively charged fatty acids comprising nerve tissue, an electrical current is established, allowing messages to transmitted from the brain to the muscles.  Although calcium is primarily responsible for initiating contractions in the muscle, magnesium is responsible for relaxing the muscle.  When there is low magnesium, muscles tend to stay tight and cramp or twitch. (1)

Magnesium is involved in the formation of bone, regulating the concentrations of parathyroid hormone and vitamin D, which are themselves major regulators of bone remodeling, a constant process of releasing and storing calcium.  Several population-based studies have found positive associations between magnesium intake and bone mineral density in both men and women.(2)  Additional studies have shown that blood magnesium levels are lower in women with osteoporosis than those with osteopenia whose levels are in turn, lower than women with normal bone density.(3)  These results suggest that a magnesium deficiency may be a risk factor for the development of osteoporosis.  Thus, taking Gadomag+ as a magnesium supplement may help support the integrity of your skeletal system.

Gadomag+ is an organic, chelated magnesium citrate compound, which contains a highly bioavailable form of magnesium. Magnesium is the fourth most common mineral in the body and involved most biological processes. For instance, magnesium helps maintain proper muscle and nerve function. It is a positively charged ion, so when it comes in contact with the negatively charged fatty acids comprising nerve tissue, an electrical current is established, allowing messages to transmitted from the brain to the muscles. Although calcium is primarily responsible for initiating contractions in the muscle, magnesium is responsible for relaxing the muscle. When there is low magnesium, muscles tend to stay tight and cramp or twitch. (1)

Magnesium plays an important role in the synthesis of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), the energy “currency” of cells. Creating ATP requires magnesium dependent enzymes called ATPases. Therefore, a deficiency in magnesium reduces metabolic efficiency, increasing the oxygen consumption and heart rate required to perform work. In two studies, this effect was observed in postmenopausal women who participated in moderate exercise. However, the author of the first study concluded that these effects are likely to occur in individuals with low magnesium, regardless of whether the person is athletic or sedentary.(4)

If your sleep quality and duration are poor, chances are you’re not feeling fully energized during your waking hours. Magnesium is involved in the regulation of central nervous system excitability, and is vital to the receptors for GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid), the calming neurotransmitter, responsible for “turning off” your brain at night.

Studies have shown that supplementation with magnesium appears to improve subjective measures of insomnia such as ISI (Insomnia Severity Index) score, sleep efficiency, sleep time, sleep onset latency (the time it takes to fall asleep), and early morning awakening.(5) Likewise, insomnia objective measures have also improved such as concentration of melatonin (a hormone naturally high at night and involved in the sleep/wake cycle), and serum cortisol (the “stress” hormone), in elderly people.(6) This indicates that magnesium could be a useful tool in managing sleep disorders when extended to the general population.
