Magnesium, protein synthesis and muscle function
Magnesium is a mineral with many properties which is fundamental for the health of the whole body. Especially at times in our lives when our body tends to consume larger quantities of magnesium, it is important to restore it to natural levels.
In particular, by supporting protein synthesis and muscle function, magnesium is especially useful for:
- facilitating muscular relaxation
- avoiding the onset of muscle pains, cramps and involuntary contractions
- reducing the symptoms of lumbosciatica
- easing cramps and pains linked to the menstrual cycle
- controlling and regulating uterine contractions
Furthermore, magnesium contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, as it acts directly on vitamin D synthesis, and it is an essential element for calcium absorption.
The role of magnesium in energy metabolism and muscle contraction
One of the main functions of magnesium in the human body is its involvement in the energy storage, transfer and usage processes.
In the human body, main energy source is ATP (adenosine triphosphate). However, ATP cannot remain freely in the cells, but must create a stable chemical bond: this function is performed precisely by magnesium which, with a positive charge, binds to ATP and allows it to interact with the enzymes involved in various cell reactions.
One of the most important of these is muscle contraction. Skeletal muscles convert the chemical energy supplied by ATP into mechanical energy, then used for contraction. In this case, as it bonds with ATP, magnesium has the fundamental function of supplying the muscles with the energy required to perform this process. In addition to being involved in the energy transformation cycle, magnesium also influences the muscle contraction and relaxation process, working with calcium in the muscle cells.
With UltraMag®, magnesium deficiency is no longer a problem
With UltraMag® a single sachet per day is enough to ensure 100% of the DRV (Dietary Reference Value) of magnesium.
With Sucrosomial® Technology, the magnesium becomes immediately bioavailable to the body as it is protected by sucrosoma®, a matrix of phospholipids and sucrose esters that coats the mineral and improves intestinal absorption, limiting the risk of problems and side effects.
In the event of nutritional deficiencies, the first advice is to ensure a balanced diet, rich in foods containing magnesium, such as nuts, cereals and green-leaf vegetables, and a correct water intake to maintain stable mineral levels in the body.
