PharmaNord's Bio-Magnesium contain a complex of three different magnesium compounds, magnesium acetate, magnesium hydroxide and magnesium carbonate, which ensures good bio-availability.
Magnesium controls more than 300 different enzyme processes in the body, many of which play a natural role in normal muscle function, nervous system function, and psychological functions. Magnesium is also important for the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
Magnesium deficiency is very common. Magnesium can be excreted when we are stressed and eating a high caffeine and high sugar diet which is why magnesium supplements often need to be taken to replenish lost magnesium.
If you fidget, have restless legs, suffer from anxiety, have hypertension or palpitations, you could need more magnesium in your diet. Magnesium is believed to have an anti-hypertensive effect and may help with sleep patterns.
The best dietary sources of magnesium are green leafy vegetables and cereals. Magnesium levels in the body may be depleted following intense physical activity, or by drinking alcohol. Many individuals may not have an adequate intake of magnesium, because of their reliance on processed foods, which contain little magnesium.
Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral; although the human body contains a relatively small amount (approximately 25g, 60% of which is in the skeleton), magnesium plays a vital role in the normal functioning of the body.
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.

Hazards and Cautions
Magnesium is generally well tolerated when taken at the recommended intake, occasionally causing gastrointestinal disturbance in susceptible individuals. The risk of dietary/supplemental magnesium overdose is low, since the kidneys are normally very efficient at eliminating any excess. People with renal disease should exercise caution if taking magnesium supplements. Magnesium supplementation may make tetracycline antibiotics less effective.
