This product contains the mineral magnesium with Vitamin B6 as a synergist.
Magnesium is essential for energy production, and protein synthesis. It plays the following roles in the regulation of cell membranes: permeability, muscular contraction, nerve impulse conduction and antagonism to calcium. Its role in the body is the following: Sixty percent of tissue magnesium is located in the skeleton. The rest is within the cells, where it performs very essential functions.
The nutrients that work with Magnesium areVitamin D, lactic acid, lactose, high protein diet and also Potassium is a magnesium synergist in many enzyme systems.
The major reasons for supplementation of Magnesium are to prevent calcium build-up in body tissues and to enhance energy production and raise low sodium levels.
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride) functions as coenzyme in amino acid, carbohydrate, and lipid metabolism. It is absorbed by passive diffusion in the jejunum and to a lesser extent in the ileum. It is primarily stored in the liver, lesser amount in the muscle and brain. Not protein bound. It is used to treat low levels of Vitamin B6 in the body and in the treatment of a condition called idiopathic sideroblastic anaemia where the red cells in the blood do not form properly. It can also be used to treat damage to the nerves (peripheral neuritis) caused by isoniazid, a drug used to treat tuberculosis. It can be also used for Alzheimer’s disease, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Down syndrome, autism, diabetes and related nerve pain, sickle cell anemia, migraine headaches, asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, night leg cramps, muscle cramps, arthritis, allergies, acne and various other skin conditions, and infertility. It is also used for dizziness, motion sickness, preventing the eye disease age-related macular degeneration (AMD), seizures, convulsions due to fever, and movement disorders (tardive dyskinesia, hyperkinesis, chorea), as well as for increasing appetite and helping people remember dreams.
