Biosphere Magnesium has been created to be the cleanest, most bioavailable magnesium supplement available.
We have combined three types of bioavailable forms of magnesium to create the ideal dose with optimal absorption. Each serving contains 400mg of elemental magnesium, a therapeutic dose to help people maintain optimal levels of magnesium.
Our magnesium comes as a great tasting, easy to mix powder that is free of binders, fillers and artificial ingredients. Flavoured with a natural lemon flavour, sweetened with stevia and monk fruit and coloured with a dash of turmeric.
Optimal magnesium levels have been shown to:
Normalise blood pressure
Regulate blood sugar
Support normal nerve and muscle function
Support healthy bones
Magnesium is an essential mineral for optimal health. Without magnesium, our body would not be able to do so many key functions that we rely on it doing such as producing energy, controlling our blood sugar and cholesterol levels and having muscles in a permanent state of contraction.
Magnesium is a macro-mineral which is required by our bodies in large amounts much like calcium, potassium, and sodium. It is needed in every cell of our body and plays a critical role in over 600 chemical reactions that keep us alive and functioning.1 It is so important that the average body holds around 25 grams of magnesium in bones and muscles, making it the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body. 2
Magnesium is commonly tied up within mineral deposits in rock formations near salt water. The most plentiful source is the sea however humans generally get most of their magnesium through fruit, vegetables and nuts that draw magnesium from the soil.
Benefits of Magnesium
As a key element in over 600 biochemical reactions in the body, adequate levels of magnesium can result in numerous health benefits. Primarily acting as a supporting mineral, the availability of magnesium is essential for optimal health.
One of the most important roles magnesium plays is that of helping to create energy for our cells. The mitochondria inside our cells need magnesium to create energy for in the form of ATP to keep us alive and functioning. Without magnesium, the nutrients we absorb could not be metabolised into usable forms of energy. Our cells then use ATP to as their fuel source or energy to carry out other function such as 3
Cell reproduction – create new cells and support cell division
Protein synthesis – create new proteins from amino acid
Muscle fibre contractions – contract and relax muscles properly
Gene maintenance – create and repair DNA and RNA
Nervous system regulation – regulate messages between the brain and nervous system
These cellular benefits that require magnesium translate to benefits you might notice on a day to day basis such as:
Improve Exercise performance
Optimal Blood Pressure
Fight Against Type 2 Diabetes
Improve PMS Symptoms
Reduce Inflammation and Pain
Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms
As magnesium is constantly being used by over 600 chemical reactions in the body, helping us functioning as we should, even a slight deficiency can significantly impact our health and day to day performance. Typical signs of a magnesium deficiency include:
High blood pressure
Low levels of magnesium have been associated with insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, asthma, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, migraines, ADHD and kidney disease. 4
