Pharma Nord Bio-Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral; although the human body contains a relatively small amount of magnesium (approximately 25g, 60% of which is in the skeleton), it still plays a vital role in the normal functioning of the body.
Magnesium supplements from Pharma Nord contain a complex of three different Magnesium compounds: acetate, hydroxide and carbonate - this ensures good bio-availability.
Magnesium controls more than 300 different enzyme processes in the body, many of which play a natural role in maintaining vital components in the human body, including (but not limited to):
- Healthy muscle function
- Nervous system function
- Normal psychological functions
- Normal bones and teeth
- Regular energy production
Types of Absorbable Magnesium
Magnesium used in supplements may occur in several chemical forms; magnesium oxide is the least expensive but is poorly absorbed, magnesium hydroxide is the form most readily absorbed, whilst magnesium acetate and magnesium carbonate are least likely to cause digestive system upset.
