biOptimizers - Magnesium Breakthrough
Why Magnesium Breakthrough
Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for all aspects of health. It participates in over 600 different biochemical reactions in your body. Yet, over 80% of the population don’t get the minimum amounts of the types of magnesium they need from diet alone because US soil is lacks it. Magnesium deficiency can increase all disease risks and keep you from performing optimally.
Even people who supplement tend to take types that are poorly absorbed, or they only take two types of magnesium at most. Each type benefits different tissues and organ systems. If you’re only taking one or two forms, you’re most likely still deficient.
BiOptimizers Magnesium Breakthrough is the only supplement on the market to offer a full spectrum of seven types of magnesium specially formulated to reach every tissue in your body to provide maximum health benefits and reverses low levels which could be causing health issues. Vitamin B6 is added to support mental health and promote a healthy stress response.
How to Take Magnesium
Recommended DosageThe recommended dosage for Magnesium Breakthrough is 2 capsules with your evening meal, although can be taken on an empty stomach. You can find the dosage on the label.
Promotes Heart HealthMagnesium is extremely important for heart health and blood vessel health. Magnesium deficiency seems to worsen the inflammation, blood vessel constriction, blood clotting, and stress responses that trigger heart conditions. Correcting deficiency appears to improve heart health and reduces risk of deaths, although it is unclear whether supplementation alone is sufficient to treat these conditions.*
Improves the Ability to Deal With Stress and Helps to RelaxA magnesium supplement significantly reduced stress in people who are deficient in magnesium. Also, combined with vitamin B6 was 40% more helpful than alone for severe stress. Findings support the need for magnesium supplementation for people living in conditions of chronic stress.*
Helps With Mood, Cognitive Function, and Mental HealthA magnesium supplement significantly improved mood after 2 weeks. Another trial found that magnesium supplements improved mood in seniors with type 2 diabetes.*
Promotes Healthy Blood Sugar Hormone Function And Promotes Healthy MetabolismMagnesium is important for hormones that regulate bloog sugar to function well. Therefore, many people with blood sugar issues, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes are deficient in magnesium. Even when diabetes is well-controlled, a supplement would still be necessary to achieve healthy levels. In a clinical trial involving 65 diabetes patients, magnesium supplementation promotes healthy function and metabolism.* A large-scale systematic and dose-response analysis found that magnesium supplementation correlated with reduced body weight and waist circumference among specific groups of people. Those with resistance, hypertension, obesity, magnesium deficiency, and women seem to weigh less and had smaller waist circumference if they took magnesium supplements.* In pregnant women with gestational diabetes, magnesium supplementation improved blood glucose control and pregnancy outcomes.*
Supports exercise performance and recoveryMagnesium supplementation improves speed and strength, possibly by making glucose metabolism more efficient. It also supports the necessary stress response to exercise, reduces muscle damage, and improves exercise recovery (400 mg/day, taken at breakfast).*
Improves Sleep QualityIn a small clinical trial involving 46 elderly subjects with insomnia, 500 mg of daily magnesium supplement reduced insomnia scores, sleep latency, and cortisol. Subjects also had more serum melatonin, slept deeper, and were less likely to wake up in the middle of the night.*
Builds Stronger BonesMagnesium is a key building blocks of your bones. Magnesium deficiency can contribute to osteoporosis by:
- preventing healthy bone formation, creating brittle bones*
- causing low-grade inflammation*
- increasing cortisol, which can contribute to bone loss*
- reducing parathyroid hormone*
Promotes Healthy Blood PressureA meta-analysis of 34 randomized control trials found that magnesium reduced blood pressure. However, the effect size is clinically small (<2 mmHg). Therefore, it may be good for supporting overall health and healthy blood pressure, but you may also need other interventions to achieve healthy blood pressure levels.*
Promotes Balanced and Healthy Immune SystemMagnesium deficiency increases inflammation. In a meta-analysis involving 32,198 people, those with more magnesium had less serum C-reactive protein (a marker of inflammation).* Overall, magnesium deficiencies tend to exacerbate or increase the risk of conditions that involve chronic inflammation.
Supports Vitamin D Activation and MetabolismBoth Vitamin D and magnesium have important roles in bone health, immune function, and metabolism. Magnesium is a cofactor in vitamin D conversion and activation. Some people cannot increase their blood 25-hydroxy vitamin D levels despite supplementing with vitamin D3 because they are deficient. In other words, magnesium deficiency can make vitamin D ineffective.* Also, in people deficient, high doses of vitamin D3 could worsen magnesium deficiency and increase the potential for side effects of vitamin D3, such as having calcium deposits in the arteries.*
