Clinicians Magnesium Chloride (45%)
Magnesium Chloride may be of benefit in maintaining cell membrane function in smooth and skeletal muscle. Magnesium (Mg) is a mineral nutrient that is critical to many cellular functions. It is found predominantly in the bone, brain, heart, liver, muscle and kidney. Magnesium is important for the relaxation phase of muscles. Dietary magnesium is mostly absorbed in the small intestine and is best ionised for absorption in an acidic environment. This would require normal amounts of stomach acid to be present. Magnesium deficiency is often secondary to factors that reduce the absorption or increase the secretion of magnesium such as high calcium intake, alcohol, surgery, some medications, impaired liver and kidney function, and heavy metal toxicity. Low magnesium levels may go unnoticed. Most of the body's magnesium stores lie within the cells and not the serum. Testing the level of magnesium within the red blood cells (erythrocyte magnesium level) is more of an indicative test. Dietary sources of Mg include green leafy vegetables; unpolished grains, seeds and nuts; legumes (soy beans and dried peas); fruits (bananas, avocado and dried apricots). The Mg content of food is influenced by the Mg content of the soil it was grown in.
