Life Extension's vegetarian Magnesium Caps supplies one of the body's most important minerals. It is required as a co-factor in hundreds of enzymatic processes. It helps maintain bone strength, muscle, heart, and nerve function, and also supports a healthy immune system.

The body needs few minerals to the extent that it depends on magnesium. It is needed as a co-factor in copious enzymatic operations within cells.16 Magnesium lends a hand to a vast array of processes and functions throughout the body.

A myriad of Americans refrain from including optimal amounts of magnesium in their diets.75 When a diet is supported by magnesium, it has long-term benefits that include controlling healthy blood pressure levels already within healthy range.76,77

Magnesium plays a significant role in calming the gentle muscles within the blood vessels, resulting in decreased external vascular opposition and supporting a healthy cardiovascular system.19-21 Magnesium also influences distributing levels of norepinephrine and the fusion of serotonin and nitric oxide.22-24

Magnesium favorably affects the bone mineral matrix and its capacity to metabolize minerals essential for mending and reconstruction.25,26 Experimental research lists the need for a vast array of minerals, including calcium and magnesium, that are essential to supporting strong, healthy bones.

Additionally, compelling  data shows that dietary magnesium consumption and supplementation enhances the metabolic profile.78 Magnesium has been demonstrated to favorably influence insulin opposition, serum lipid profiles, inflammation, endothelial dysfunction, oxidative stress and platelet aggregability.79 Because magnesium is cost effective, people everywhere would benefit if we chose to supplement with at least 500 mg of magnesium on a daily basis.
