Magnesium Complex 500 helps to provide the body with this important mineral rapidly and reliably, even in times when your magnesium requirements are at their peak. It offers a blend of carefully selected components, which guarantee high bioavailability and excellent tolerability. Athletes, older people, and anyone who experiences high levels of stress can particularly benefit from the support of this product.
Magnesium is a mineral that plays an essential role in many of the human body’s important functions. As a cofactor of 600 enzymes, magnesium is involved in numerous metabolic processes. In conjunction with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the most important energy carrier for all cells, magnesium ensures the activation of ATP-dependent enzymes. These functionally important proteins control vital processes in glucose and fat metabolism, and are linked to many other biochemical reactions in the body.
Magnesium has a regulatory effect on bio-membranes and electrolytes, which means it can have an effect on muscle contractions, the transmission of stimuli to nerve cells, vascular tone, blood pressure, and heart rhythm.
Magnesium’s ability to form complexes with different biomolecules also makes this mineral an important stabilizer for the nucleic acids DNA and RNA, which are responsible for storing and converting genetic information.
Finally, magnesium also has a major impact on bone health: It is a building block of hydroxyapatite, a ceramic material, which is the main component of bone substance, and activates the growth and proliferation of bone-forming cells (osteoblasts).
Within the human body, magnesium is primarily stored in cellular form – around half in muscle and other soft tissue, with the remainder stored in bone tissue. Only about 1 percent of the body’s total magnesium is found in the blood. The magnesium concentration in the blood serum is kept physiologically constant. It can only be detected in blood serum if too little magnesium is supplied over a very long period of time. Even when the serum concentration is reported as normal, there could still be an intracellular magnesium deficiency.  
A magnesium deficiency is not easy to detect with conventional blood tests. But there are early warning signs that can point to such a defect:
For those at increased risk, a preventive intake of this important mineral can help to prevent a magnesium deficiency.
Magnesium Complex 500 contains elemental magnesium in seven different formulations that ensure rapid availability and a long-lasting, optimal supply.
Magnesium Complex 500 contains the following magnesium components:
Magnesium oxide provides long-lasting intracellular uptake when taken continuously for a few months.
Magnesium Complex 500 contains magnesium citrate in the form of trimagnesium dicentrate, which ensures it is readily available. Magnesium citrate is quickly absorbed and is, therefore, a good source of magnesium for athletes.
Magnesium ascorbate is a salt of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). In combination with vitamin C, it is well tolerated and supports the immune system.
Magnesium malate is a compound of magnesium with malate. It is well tolerated and has a high bioavailability. Magnesium malate’s small particle size ensures optimal absorption and effect in the human body. The compound supports the relaxation of muscle cells and helps to provide an optimal source of energy via ATP. It is therefore particularly suitable for
preventing physical fatigue and promoting the natural function of muscles and nerves.
Magnesium glycinate is bound to the amino acid L-glycine, which is mainly found in connective tissue and in the brain. Magnesium glycinate is a chelated form of magnesium that offers high bioavailability. It is very well tolerated and, in the recommended dosage, does not cause any gastrointestinal symptoms, even in those who are more sensitive. Some case studies show rapid positive effects on mood swings when magnesium chelate is taken with each meal and at bedtime.
Magnesium taurate is bound to the amino sulphonic acid taurine, which is found in high concentrations in muscle tissue and in the brain. This element helps to overcome tiredness and fatigue, and supports protein synthesis and normal muscle function. The compound has a
relaxing effect on the vascular system. It supports blood circulation and oxygen supply, and also helps to prevent muscle cramps.
Magnesium gluconate is an organic salt of gluconate. It has the highest oral bioavailability of all magnesium salts and is therefore particularly effective in supporting the tasks that magnesium completes within the human body.
Magnesium Complex 500 contains only natural ingredients, all of which have an excellent safety profile. However, the intake of very high amounts of magnesium can lead to mild gastrointestinal complaints and diarrhea – so the recommended daily dose should never be exceeded under any circumstances. In order to prevent this undesirable effect, it is advisable to spread your daily dose of magnesium across several intakes. Optimal times of day for taking Magnesium Complex 500 are, for example, in the morning and evening before meals and after physical activity.
Magnesium is not recommended for children under the age of four. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should discuss any planned magnesium supplement intake with their doctor.
If you are taking any other medication, you should also seek medical advice before planning to take magnesium in order to rule out possible interactions.
Taking Magnesium Complex 500 can help prevent any deficiency of this important mineral in times of increased need.
Magnesium Complex 500 is therefore particularly suitable for people who:
