from Sanutrition contains magnesium in a particularly stomach-friendly form and can be absorbed very well by the body as organically bound magnesium. Even with a vegan lifestyle, the dietary supplement is thus a real alternative that is particularly effectively utilized.
Magnesium – indispensable for the body
Magnesium is a real all-rounder. This mineral is particularly important for muscle function, the nerves and nervous system, the maintenance of normal teeth and bones, and for the electrolyte balance in the body.

Occurrence in food Magnesium is found in varying amounts in foods due to its wide distribution in the animal and plant kingdoms. However, in the usual mixed diet, more than 2/3 of the magnesium ingested comes from vegetables and cereals. Magnesium is abundant in all green vegetables as an essential component of chlorophyll. In addition, whole grain products, oatmeal, nuts and legumes contain appreciable amounts of the mineral. Magnesium-rich fruits are berries and bananas. Of the animal foods, meat, fish, milk and dairy products contribute to meeting demand. Various mineral and drinking waters are also good sources of magnesium.
In the diet, various components decrease or increase the bioavailability of the mineral. Inhibitory can be a high fiber content, because it comes to complex formations, lactose and probably other carbohydrates can improve magnesium absorption through bacterial fermentation of the intestinal flora.
The magnesium content of foods can also be reduced by various preparation and processing procedures. Notable losses occur during vegetable preparation by soaking, blanching, and boiling in a lot of water (when the cooking water is discarded). Significantly higher losses than for other minerals are also recorded through the milling of grain.
Physiological effects Enzyme activity: Involved as a coenzyme in over 300 enzymatic reactions, such as protein and nucleic acid synthesis. Energy metabolism: activator of enzymes in the citrate cycle Oxidative phosphorylation of ATP Activation of cholesterol esterase in lipid metabolism Nervous system and musculature: maintenance of membrane permeability. Responsible for membrane stabilization as cofactor of the sodium-potassium pump Regulation of excitation conduction as an antagonist of calcium Hormone balance : release of hormones (e.g. insulin) and neurotransmitters (e.g. dopamine, glutamate). Regulation of cellular signal transduction (second messenger) Cardiovascular : regulation of cardiac pumping function and rhythmicity Antithrombotic function by reducing platelet aggregation. Regulation of vascular muscle tone, vasodilation

The physiological functions of magnesium The total body stock of a healthy adult is 20 – 30 g of magnesium. Magnesium, like potassium, is a typical intracellular ion, found 60% in bone cells and 35% in skeletal and cardiac muscle cells. In addition to its structure-forming properties, magnesium is a cofactor of 300 different enzymes and thus involved in a wide variety of functions in the organism. Among other things, magnesium regulates membrane permeability and ion transport of sodium and potassium between the intracellular and extracellular space, thereby playing a central role in excitation conduction and muscle contraction (3). The symptomatology of magnesium deficiency includes four areas: CNS, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal tract and muscular system. A marginal deficiency of magnesium leads to non-specific symptoms such as fatigue, nervousness or loss of appetite. Manifest deficiency may manifest as muscle spasms, neuromuscular hyperexcitation, cardiac arrhythmias, vasospasm, dizziness, numbness and tingling in the hands, and diarrhea alternating with constipation (3).
Bioavailability of various magnesium compounds The highly soluble organic magnesium compounds (e.g., citrate, gluconate, malate, lactate) are generally more bioavailable than the inorganic compounds (e.g., carbonate, oxide, sulfate)
