Description

Magnesium is an essential mineral that is present in the human body, primarily in our bones and muscles, but also in small quantities in blood serum and red blood cells. Major dietary sources of magnesium include vegetables, fish, nuts and whole grains.

It plays a part in more than 300 reactions in the body. For example, it is involved in muscle contraction, protein synthesis, oxygen transport, energy metabolism, and immune functions. Magnesium contributes to normal muscle function. Some examples:

  • magnesium plays a major part in neuromuscular activity and initiating muscle contraction
  • magnesium is amongst other things a cofactor in ATP generation in mitochondria (energy production in the energy factories of the muscle)
  • magnesium is needed to extract energy when phosphocreatine is converted to creatine (PCR-Cr is one of the three energy systems in the human body and is primarily utilised during short intense exertions)
  • a large enough deficiency of magnesium causes structural damage to muscle cells

Part of the magnesium in the Etixx Magnesium Instant Stick comes in a chelated form meaning it is bound to amino acids. This means that it is more efficiently absorbed. It also contains added Vitamin C to protect against oxidative muscle stress.
