About Vitamins.co.nz BioTrace Elemental Magnesium
Magnesium is an essential nutrient required for many biologic functions in the body, including over 300 enzyme reactions. It also functions in the activation of amino acids, syntheses and degradation of DNA and has an important role in neurotransmission and immune function. Magnesium promotes the absorption and assimilation of other minerals including calcium, phosphorous, sodium and potassium and enables utilisation of vitamin B complex and vitamins C and E.
Stress increases the need for magnesium. According to Mildred Seelig, M.D., M.P.H., Maser of the American College of Nutrition and MRI's consultant, physical stress including exercise, working in high temperatures, surgery, trauma and psychological stress increase the body's need for magnesium. "Stress causes secretion of epinephrine (adrenaline) and corticosteroids and results in Mg loss in animals and humans." Other factors such as dietary fat, protein sugar and alcohol intake affect magnesium status in the body. Pregnant women and elderly persons need to ensure they are receiving enough magnesium in their diet.
