THE BREAKDOWN

  • Maker of genetic material
  • Breaks down protein and carbohydrates
  • Transportation agent for substances through cell membrane
  • Provides healthy heart, bones, blood vessels and muscles


IN THE BODY
The body absorbs only 50 percent of all ingested Magnesium.

Lack of Magnesium in the body can result in heart problems, tiredness, cardiovascular problems, hypertension, diabetes, migraines, kidney stones and mental disorders.


NATURAL FORMS
Natural forms of Magnesium can be found in vegetables, whole grains and nuts.
