When we think of bone and joint health, the first thing that comes to mind is calcium, followed by vitamin D. These two nutrients are certainly essential, but magnesium is directly involved in maintaining the bone metabolism. In fact, magnesium is a fundamental mineral for the synthesis of Vitamin D and consequently for the absorption of calcium in the intestines.
Particularly during the menopause and later in life, many scientific studies have shown a positive correlation between magnesium intake and increased bone density. A correct magnesium intake through a varied, balanced diet and, when this is not enough, with the use of specific food supplements, helps to prevent osteoporosis.
It has been demonstrated that magnesium deficiency leads to a reduced cell activity for the synthesis of the bone matrix, and at the same time to an increase in the re-absorption of bone tissue. In the long run, these two factors lead to a progressive increase in bone and joint fragility.
This is why it is always recommended to ensure a correct diet rich in foods with high magnesium content, without forgetting the importance of hydration: drinking at least 2 litres of water a day is essential for maintaining stable levels of mineral salts in the body.
And when diet is not enough, or when our intake requirement increases, UltraMag® can help you to supplement the daily dose of magnesium.
A single sachet a day contains 100% of the DRV (Dietary Reference Value) of magnesium and, thanks to its Sucrosomial® composition, is it highly bioavailable for the body, thus becoming a precious resource for preventing magnesium deficiency and supporting bone health.
