We advice Magnesium Plus
Magnesium (Mg) is a common mineral that is necessary for the proper functioning of every cell, organ, and system in the entire body. Even though this mineral can be found naturally in the body and is available from a variety of food sources, there is a high risk of deficiency for this critical nutrient in the American diet.
This mineral helps to support nearly every process in the human body by working with other nutrients. It can help with metabolism, provide the body with the necessary energy, helps with nerve and muscle functions, enzyme processes, reduces inflammation, protects cell membranes, and helps to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar. This nutrient is also necessary for the production of healthy teeth and bone tissues.
