FAST FACTS

Fast Fact

Magnesium has the capacity to increase GABA receptors in the brain as well as improve brain function. Furthermore, it plays an important role in regulating neurotransmitters (these send messages throughout the brain and body). When we’re low in Magnesium these things are not happening and we can end up with these types of mood disorders

Fast Fact

Magnesium is a critical biological element for human health; it is the second most abundant electrolyte within the cells after potassium and the fourth most common mineral in the human body after calcium, potassium, and sodium.[1,2]

Fast Fact

Magnesium supplements are often used as a natural remedy for sleep issues such as insomnia. This is because magnesium regulates several neurotransmitters involved in sleep.

Fast Fact

Magnesium can improve blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity in people at risk of type 2 diabetes.  Insulin resistance is responsible for belly fat, and inflammation, and is a huge risk factor for Type 2 Diabetes.⁠

Fast Fact

Studies suggest that about 48% of people with type 2 diabetes have low blood levels of magnesium, which may impair the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar levels effectively. According to one review, magnesium supplements help enhance insulin sensitivity, a key factor involved in blood sugar control.

Fast Fact

For every molecule of sugar one consumes, it takes 54 molecules of Magnesium for your body to process it.

Fast Fact

MAGNESIUM BIS-GLYCINATE has great bioavailability and minimal laxative effects. Magnesium bis-glycinate contains 2 glycine molecules for 1 Magnesium molecule. Glycine is an amino acid known for its calming effect as well as supporting detoxification and cellular function. Clinically this form of Magnesium has been used successfully for chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, and muscle relaxation.

Fast Fact

Magnesium, especially in mag glycinate form, is an essential nutrient that supports healthy muscle and nerve function. This can help relieve muscle cramps and soothe tension for a greater sense of relaxation, calm, and restful sleep.*

Fast Fact

Magnesium helps in the manufacturing of steroid hormones which include progesterone, estrogen and testosterone. Magnesium also helps to normalize the action of progesterone on the central nervous system deeming it helpful in PMS and migraines.

Fast Fact

Magnesium is a vital micronutrient for your muscle’s ability to contract and relax. A lack of Magnesium causes stiffening of the muscle tissue and will often lead to cramps, pain, and spasms.

Fast Fact

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and is necessary for the proper functioning of 700-800 enzyme systems in the body. In fact, every cell in the body contains Magnesium and needs it to function. This is one of the reasons why a Magnesium deficiency is implicated in dozens of different health conditions.

Fast Fact

Magnesium helps with ADHD. 95% Of those with ADHD are deficient in magnesium and this mineral is essential for brain function. 

Fast Fact

A deficiency in magnesium can increase agitation, anxiety, irritability, hyperexcitability, attention, and aggression problems in children.[8] 

Fast Fact

With around 52% of the magnesium stores located in the bone and approximately 40% of peak bone mass accumulated by adolescence, the best time to influence bone mass is in the early years; therefore, optimal magnesium levels are especially important for children.[6]

Fast Fact

Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral and the second most prevalent intracellular cation in the body. It also serves as a cofactor for over 600 enzymes. Most notably, magnesium is required for energy production, carbohydrate metabolism, and DNA and protein synthesis.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Magnesium is one of those minerals that just seems to be able to do it all. Not only is it a cofactor for more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate many of your biological processes but it’s also needed for energy production and bone health (to name only a few). Not all teen’s get  enough magnesium from their diet, especially if they are picky eaters. Because magnesium is found in fibre rich foods like spinach (and other green leafy vegetables) as well as legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains, if your teen is not hitting the recommended intake for these foods, then they may be lacking.

 

At Bioteen, we encourage a food-first approach but when your teen falls short, we are there to help fill in the gaps. That’s why we created Bioteen’s Magboost. A combination of magnesium malate and magnesium glycinate that is easily absorbed and used by the body.

 

Let’s take a look at how meeting your magnesium requirements for the day can affect health.

 

Bone density

 

Magnesium is well known as a bone health mineral. Bone formation is a delicate balance of building up and breaking down and magnesium appears to influence the activity of both osteoblasts (which build up bone) as well as osteoclasts (which breaks bone down). In addition to this, magnesium also affects the concentrations of the parathyroid hormone and active vitamin D. Both of these have a role to play in calcium regulation, which is also a well-known bone mineral.

 

Several population based studies have shown that there is a positive association between magnesium intake and improved bone density in both men and women, cementing the proposed relationship with bone health (&).

 

Energy support

 

Magnesium is involved in energy production in several ways. For example, carbohydrates and fats are broken down by the body to yield energy through a number of magnesium dependent chemical reactions. In addition to this, ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the main energy source in the cell, needs to bind to magnesium in order to become biologically active (^). Without magnesium, we wouldn’t be able to derive energy from the foods we eat, and our cells wouldn’t be able to access energy in the form of ATP.

 

Supports metabolic health

 

Many metabolic derangements, like obesity and type 2 diabetes, cause low grade inflammation. This may not seem like a problem, but the basis of many diseases is inflammation. Having a magnesium deficiency promotes inflammation in two ways, directly and through directing the intestinal microbiota’s structure and composition (^). A deficiency can also impair insulin secretion and because magnesium plays an important role in glucose metabolism, a deficiency may play a role in increasing risk for type 2 diabetes (&).

 

Detoxification

 

Although the body is very good at detoxifying itself (using organs like the liver, kidneys, lungs and skin), having a magnesium deficiency may impair some of these well-oiled processes. Magnesium has been shown to have antioxidant properties, helping to reduce damage from unstable toxin intermediates that are formed in the detoxification process (#).

 

Magnesium and sleep

Sleep is one of those things that you just can’t go without. Not sleeping enough can have far reaching consequences and may increase inflammation and lead to immune system dysfunction. Magnesium may help to regulate sleep because it acts as an N-Methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) antagonist (meaning it reduces its action) and a γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) agonist (which means it enhances its action).

 

This is important because NMDA receptors are activated by excitatory neurotransmitters and GABA receptors are activated by inhibitory neurotransmitters. In addition to this, it has been suggested that magnesium helps to increase melatonin (sleep hormone) and reduce cortisol (stress hormone), both of which play an important role in a good night’s sleep.

 

Magnesium and mood (specifically PMS)

As magnesium is a GABA agonist, which is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, it helps to produce feelings of calm which may be helpful for those struggling to wind down. In addition to this, some research suggests that magnesium and calcium levels are often lower in women who suffer from PMS and it is hypothesised that correcting these deficiencies will have a knock on effect on mood (4).

 

The bottom line

Magnesium is a very important mineral that has multiple functions in the human body. Many people are not eating a diet rich in magnesium, and although this should be your first port of call, meeting these food targets may not be feasible for everyone. Magnesium supplementation has been shown to improve magnesium status and can be used to close the gap between what your teen is getting and what your teen needs.
