Magnesium & Calcium Magnesium & Calcium

NOW FOODS Magnesium & Calcium is a product which enriches your diet with a complex of key minerals, i.e. magnesium and calcium as well as extra zinc and vitamin D3. It provides cofactors for hundreds of biochemical reactions and thus improves significantly the functioning of the body by ensuring continuity of its numerous processes. The agent is targeted at supporting the locomotor system, both its osteoarticular and muscular part. What is more, it supports many other areas important for efficient functioning of the body, including: the nervous, cardiovascular, immune and digestive system as well as detoxifications processes, the antioxidant barrier, energy and hormonal balance, replication of genetic material and reproductive processes. The product’s efficacy is ensured by the combination of a few main minerals which features Aquamin® TG, a multimineral complex derived from marine algae covering unspoilt Icelandic coastline.

Magnesium – shortened as Mg, isolated in a pure form for the first time in 1808, a divalent chemical element, classified among alkaline earth metals. It is an essential dietary mineral which, when it is delivered with food, acts as a base-forming element, electrolyte and cofactor of more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. About 30 g of magnesium is stored in the human body, of which 50-60% is found in bone tissue as hydroxyapatites, 20% in skeletal muscles, 20% in other tissues, e.g nervous tissue and organs, and only 1% in erythrocytes and serum. It has many important functions in the human body and the most important ones refer to the nervous system. Daily requirements for this mineral are about 320 mg for women and 420 mg for men. A normal blood magnesium concentration varies from 0,65–1,25 mmol/l. Magnesium is not one the best absorbable elements and about 30-50% is estimated to be assimilated from diet. It is difficult to maintain adequate intake of this element especially because of its small amount in food, caused by high food processing, impoverished soil used for production of this food, as well as an unbalanced diet. This leads to hypomagnesemia (magnesium deficiency) which is more and more common in society. The diagnosis is delayed because magnesium deficit is not reflected early in blood tests.  The most abundant sources of magnesium are: chlorophyll-rich products, including greens, halibut, cocoa, pumpkin seeds, almonds and wheat bran. Because of high intake, a valuable product is also hard drinking water.

Properties of magnesium
Facilitates the formation of body structures

By supporting the production of testosterone and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and maintaining their adequate levels, it creates a convenient hormonal environment for growth of many body structures, especially proteins. It facilitates also tRNA synthesis, stabilises RNA and helps repair and package DNA. As a result, it enhances the effectiveness of replication of genetic material whose proper rate of synthesis ensures required effectiveness of body cell formation.

Supports energy balance and the management of energy substrates
It controls the transport of electrons in the respiratory chain, improves the activity of enzymes responsible for transferring phosphoryl groups and stabilises mitochondrial membranes, consequently improving viability of this organelle. Because of that, it is critical to efficient conversion of energy substrates into energy. By facilitating insulin production, reducing cell resistance to insulin and improving the function of beta pancreatic cells, it promotes insulin activity and optimises blood glucose levels.

Maintains healthy muscle function
By helping preserve genetic material, stabilising cell membranes and ribosomes, it extends the lifespan of myocytes and thus the whole muscle tissue. As an antagonist of calcium, magnesium decreases hyperexcitability in transmitting signals from the brain to muscles and thus normalises muscle contractility.

Helps maintain healthy bones
By decreasing elevated parathormone levels and enhancing the activity of specific phosphatases, osteoblasts and calcitonin, magnesium optimises processes of mineralisation of bones and is therefore vital to their formation and regeneration.

Supports cardiovascular function
By antagonising calcium and competing for a binding site in cell membrane, magnesium has a direct vasodilating effect on endothelium, consequently increasing the lumen of blood vessels and lowering blood pressure. It inhibits also the expression of proto-oncogenes, reduces inflammation in blood vessels and cardiac muscle, thereby reducing the progression of atherosclerosis. What is more, it slows down calcium ion influx through the L-type calcium channel, consequently decreasing cardiac hyperactivity, and prolongs an action potential by changing cell membrane depolarisation due to its impact on the activity of potassium channels. As a result, it regulates cardiac function and prevents arrythmia.  It stabilises thrombocytes and acts therefore as an anticoagulant. In addition, by forming insoluble salt complexes with fatty acids in the digestive tract, it reduces absorption of fats and their accumulation in the cardiovascular system.

Contributes to normal nervous system function
Since it is involved in building neurons, magnesium supports formation processes of the nervous system. By forming magnesium barrier inside the NMDA receptor ion channel, it prevents the uncontrolled, massive influx of calcium or sodium into the cell. Because of that, it regulates neuronal excitability in the body. Furthermore, magnesium affects the activity of NMDA receptors and thus supports memory processes.

Improves the quality of rest
By reducing a stimulating effect of calcium on the nervous system and inhibiting the synthesis and release of adrenaline, magnesium normalises neuronal excitability, thereby calming the body throughout the day, especially when we experience a high level of stress and need to manage it. It improves sleep quality and boosts regenerative processes during this state.

Helps maintain a good mood
Magnesium regulates the activity of NMDA and GABA receptors, which contributes significantly to hippocampal suppression and release of adrenocorticotropic hormone, and influences the limbic-hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis. As a result, it helps reduce chronic fatigue. In addition, by relaxing and improving sleep quality, it balances neuronal excitability in the circadian rhythm, consequently giving a sense of comfort.

Ensures normal immune function
By speeding up lymphocyte maturation, it facilitates a quick response from the body’s defense system.

Is involved in digestive function
By facilitating the activity of digestive enzymes and controlling the absorption of substances passing through the intestinal barrier, magnesium has an impact on digestive function.

Affects renal function
By stimulating processes of acid excretion and preventing the removal of amino acids, potassium and phosphorous through urine, it determines the quality of renal function.

Promotes the body’s detoxification
By competing with lead and cadmium for transport through the intestinal barrier, it decreases the absorption of toxic heavy metals.

Helps maintain normal body mass
Magnesium is necessary for maintaining normal insulin-carbohydrate balance – it decreases the absorption of fat from the digestive tract by forming insoluble complexes which are excreted from the body. In some cases, it reduces also water retention. As a result, it helps maintain a healthy body mass.

Maintains healthy reproductive abilities
By improving sperm viability and increasing its motility, magnesium boosts male reproductive abilities. It shows also a tocolytic effect on uterine muscle and thus helps carry a pregnancy to term.

Symptoms of magnesium deficiency
The most frequent symptoms of magnesium are in particular: heart arrythmia, high blood pressure, muscle cramps, eye twitches, chronic fatigue, depression and brittle nails.

Calcium – with symbol Ca, a divalent chemical element which belongs to alkaline earth metals, isolated for the first time in 1808. Its role in the human body is associated mainly with building bones as their significant structural component. It is partly justified on the grounds that 99% of calcium in the body is stored in bones which amounts to a total of 1 kg. The role of calcium as an electrolyte and activator of selected enzymes is also important for the functioning of the body. Normal blood concentration of this element varies from 2,15–2,6 mmol/l. The amount that must be provided with diet is about 1200 mg. Despite of great awareness of calcium content in particular food products, it is estimated that the intake of this mineral with food often does not meet essential requirements. More importantly, dietary calcium absorption is not high and amounts to 20-40%. The best calcium-rich products are dairy products, sprats, sardines, tofu, sesame seeds and almonds.

Properties of calcium
Necessary for maintaining strong bones

As the most important component of bones in the form of hydroxyapatite crystals, it is vital to existence of the skeleton. Proper calcium availability is necessary for building and repairing bones.

Affects cardiovascular function
Calcium is crucial to normal contractility of cardiac muscle, is involved in regulating blood pressure and prevents blood platelet aggregation. Because of that, it has an impact on cardiovascular function.

Is involved in nervous system function
By flowing into the neuron, it enhances neurotransmission. It takes part also in processes of memory formation.

Supports immune function
By affecting macrophage activation, it contributes to immune function.

Protects the body in the event of chronic inflammation
By taking part in the formation of calcium deposits in the parts of the body affected by long-term inflammation, it protects them from damage or degradation.

Supports energy balance
By controlling the activity of enzymes promoting reactions in the Krebs cycle, calcium participates in processes of energy production from energy substrates. Since it enhances the effectiveness of lipolysis and slows down the rate of lipogenesis, it manages energy substrates.

Takes part in thermoregulation processes
Calcium contributes to optimising the calcium-sodium balance controlled by hypothalamus and is therefore involved in thermoregulation of the body.

Helps control body mass
Calcium stimulates lipolysis and the related breakdown of storage fat, inhibits the formation of new fatty acids in lipogenesis and decreases intestinal absorption of fat due to binding sodium to fatty acids. Consequently, it helps maintain a healthy body mass.

Supports reproductive abilities
By ensuring normal sperm motility, calcium contributes to maintaining proper male reproductive capacity.

Properties of extra active substances
Zinc – shortened as Zn, a divalent chemical element from the group 12. Its total amount in the human body is 1.5-4 g, of which the greatest quantities are localised in muscles and bones. It is acknowledged that the daily requirements for this element can be met by an intake of 10-15 mg. The most valuable zinc-rich products include: seafood, especially oysters, red meat, liver, eggs and milk as well as pumpkin and sesame seeds. In the human body, it acts as a cofactor of many enzymes and is an element vital to normal function of numerous hormones. This is reflected by the multitude of its functions in the organism:

Vitamin D3 – known as cholecalciferol, a fat-soluble chemical compound with steroid structure, synthesised endogenously in the human body by epidermal cells exposed to sun rays. It is considered that requirements for vitamin D for an average adult is 4000 IU/day (100 µg/day) of which half should be provided with food. Since the amount of vitamin synthesised endogenously varies depending from daily skin exposure to sun rays, it is not easy to control dietary intake of this compound. It may prove helpful to test serum calcidiol levels for which normal concentrations are assumed to be from 80 nmol/l (200 ng/ml) and up to 250 nmol/l (100 ng/ml). Food products rich in vitamin D are fatty fish, cod-liver oil and dried mushrooms. It is important to maintain proper vitamin D levels due to its many functions in the body:

NOW FOODS Magnesium & Calcium is an agent with a blend of the most important minerals: magnesium, calcium as well as extra zinc and vitamin D3 which maximise effects of main active ingredients of the product. Since it provides cofactors necessary for function of an enormous number of enzymes, it supports many biochemical processes. The selection of ingredients for the complex supports the function of the locomotor system, both its osteoarticular and muscular part. It works however also in other body parts, such as the nervous, cardiovascular, digestive and immune system. It supports also detoxification processes, energy and hormonal balance, helps maintain redox balance, optimise replication processes of genetic material and reproductive abilities. The product’s efficacy is ensured by use of a few forms of main minerals, among which the most significant and unique one is Aquamin® TG, a multi-mineral complex from marine algae derived from unspoilt Icelandic coasts.

In the human body, it acts as a cofactor of many enzymes and is an element vital to normal function of numerous hormones. This is reflected by the multitude of its functions in the organism:

  • It promotes the production of metalloproteins responsible for eliminating free radicals, is a component of superoxide dismutase which reduces superoxide radical, protects sulfhydryl groups in proteins from uncontrolled oxidation, reduces excessive activity of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and NADPH oxidase, modulates the response to stress by the transcription factor NTF2 and acts as an antagonist of copper whose excessive levels create conditions for oxidative stress. As a result, it improves the functioning of the antioxidant barrier.
  • By facilitating the function of numerous enzymes, including RNA and DNA polymerases, and taking part in the binding of nucleic acids to proteins, it supports replication processes of genetic material and formation of new protein structures.
  • When it is delivered to the body in proper amounts, it reduces the likelihood of blood vessel calcification and helps maintain normal levels of cholesterol and low density lipoproteins (LDL). As a result, it supports a healthy cardiovascular system.
  • As a component of glutamate complexes, it modulates neuronal excitability by inhibiting NMDA and GABA receptors and activating AMPA. Consequently, it has an impact on the quality of neurotransmission and memory formation processes.
  • By promoting the activity of gustin responsible for development of taste buds, zinc promotes high efficiency of the sense of taste.
  • It also regulates leptin levels and thus contributes to signalling satiety after a meal.
  • Since it facilitates the production of retinoic acid, it is critical to vision.
  • It promotes well-being by boosting levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor, promoting the reuptake of serotonin and exhibiting antiglutamatergic properties which reduces the severity of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
  • Since it is a component of carboxypeptidases and optimises gastric secretion of hydrochloric acid, zinc takes part in digestive processes.
  • By regulating levels of hydrochloric acid whose adequate amount is necessary for reducing pathogens reaching the digestive tract, as well as promoting leaktightness of the intestinal epithelial barrier, zinc supports a healthy digestive system and helps fulfil its protective function.
  • Since it reduces NK cell overactivity, promotes the production of IL-1, IL-6 and TNF-alpha, primes T lymphocytes faster for action, boosts the activation of monocytes and controls the adhesion of neutrophils to vessel epithelial cells, it supports immune function.
  • By competing with lead and cadmium for access to transporters at the intestinal barrier, zinc prevents poisoning with heavy metals.
  • By controlling replication processes of genetic material and synthesis and development of specific structures as well as reducing oxidative stress which leads to their damage, it reduces the formation of cancer cells.
  • As a cofactor of carbonic anhydrase, it promotes the excretion of carbon dioxide through the lungs or its conversion to hydrogencarbonate and carbonic ion in the kidneys. As a result, it helps maintain the acid-base balance in the body.
  • It activates hormones responsible for the quality of energy balance, in particular thyroid hormones, insulin or glucagon, and ensures optimal function of organs vital to normal levels hormones, including in the pancreas. As a consequence, it contributes to maintaining energy balance.
  • It helps optimise sex hormones by taking part in the transformation of testosterone to these hormones, regulating testosterone synthesis and the amount of androgen receptors necessary for normal hormone function and reducing overactivity of 5α-reductase which converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
  • It maintains normal testosterone levels, helps stabilise the rate of spermatogenesis, speeds up sperm maturation while increasing their viability and vitality. As a result, it is critical to healthy male reproductive abilities.
  • By reducing overactivity of 5α-reductase located in the prostate, it inhibits the progression of male prostatic hyperplasia. Since zinc mitigates its negative action on the scalp, it prevents excessive hair loss.
  • It promotes wound healing, in particular in the skin, by inhibiting the development of harmful bacteria and showing anstringent properties.

Vitamin D3 – known as cholecalciferol, a fat-soluble chemical compound with steroid structure, synthesised endogenously in the human body by epidermal cells exposed to sun rays. It is considered that requirements for vitamin D for an average adult is 4000 IU/day (100 µg/day) of which half should be provided with food. Since the amount of vitamin synthesised endogenously varies depending from daily skin exposure to sun rays, it is not easy to control dietary intake of this compound. It may prove helpful to test serum calcidiol levels for which normal concentrations are assumed to be from 80 nmol/l (200 ng/ml) and up to 250 nmol/l (100 ng/ml). Food products rich in vitamin D are fatty fish, cod-liver oil and dried mushrooms. It is important to maintain proper vitamin D levels due to its many functions in the body:

  • It promotes the formation of calcium-binding proteins in the intestines, optimises the absorption of phosphorous which is an antagonist for calcium and enhances the effectiveness of renal reuptake of calcium. As a result, it helps use this element in the body more effectively.
  • By improving the calcium-phosphorous ratio, improving the number of their connections in bone tissue and stimulating the activity of osteoblasts, it promotes bone formation processes in the skeleton.
  • Since it normalises calcium concentration in the cardiovascular system, it optimises levels of its available form whose proper amount is required for maintaining continuity of biochemical transformations.
  • It affects calcium balance and its penetration into specific cells and thus has an impact the intensity of contraction of smooth and skeletal muscles.
  • It is of considerable importance for maintaining healthy blood pressure and cardiac muscle function. Because of that, it supports the functioning of the cardiovascular system.
  • By strengthening the antioxidant barrier, it minimises damage to structures of the nervous system caused by overactivity of reactive molecules.
  • It reduces the rate of synthesis of proinflammatory cytokines, influences the activity of macrophages and monocytes in the presence of a pathogen and regulates the activation of T and B lymphocytes. Consequently, it optimises immune function.
  • Since it limits aromatase overactivity and affects levels of luteinizing and follicle-stimulating hormone, it helps maintain healthy testosterone levels and hormonal balance in the body.
  • By slowing down the rate of cancer cell proliferation and contributing to their apoptosis, it reduces the amount of cellular pathological changes in the body.
  •  It enhances the effectiveness of insulin release in response to the presence of glucose and improves insulin function by decreasing insulin resistance. Owing to that, it improves insulin-carbohydrate balance.

Vitamin D3

Information

Vitamin D belongs to fat soluble vitamins, occurs in three forms: calciferol (vitamin D1) ergocalciferol (vitamin D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), it is formed under the action of sunlight for at least 15 minutes per day. In the absence of sunlight it should be administered in the diet in the form of fish oil (Vitamin A + D3) and fish oils. It is responsible for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. It is the building substance of bone tissue particularly necessary during pregnancy, childhood, and for athletes. It is a component of dietary supplements and nutrients among competetive athletes. Deficiency of vitamin D causes children growth inhibition, and rickets.
For adults - deficiency causes osteomalacia.
Excess
of vitamin D causes headaches, alopecia, nausea, drowsiness, blurred vision, pain in the long bones, the deposition of calcium deposits.
Dosage: 400 IU units during the day.


 

Calcium

Information

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess result
ing from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications
are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)

Seaweed

Information

Seaweed - in everyday language referred to algae living in sea water (salt water), among them also can be mentioned algae growing in the Baltic Sea, of kelp family, bladderwrack (in Poland uder protection). The number of marine algae is determined to be more than 10 000. They are sources of nutrients (vitamins A, C and E), minerals (iodine, calcium) and fibre. Some species of algae provide polysaccharides (fucoidans), with the anticancer potential. In addition to the nutrients, they have the ability to regulate lipid profile, facilitating the functioning of the thyroid gland. They are components of nutrients, vitamins and vitamin-mineral supporting reduction of body fat supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl

Minerals

Information

Minerals are ashes remaining after burning the tissues of the body, constituting less than 4% by weight. They are divided into macro-nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sulphur, calcium) and micronutrients (zinc, fluorine, iodine, manganese, copper, selenium, etc.) and ultra-elements (boron, cobalt, molybdenum, nickel, titanium, vanadium). Minerals (commonly found in the form of mineral salts) are the ingredients of bone, as well as compounds such as hemoglobin, thyroxine and enzymes. They maintain the level of electrolytes in the body. Determine the proper functioning of the nervous and muscular system. They come in the form of mono-preparation supplements or part of the various supplements (including mineralizing, vitamin and mineral), isotonic drinks, creatine stacks and no-boosters Available at the www.muscle-zone.pl

Magnesium

Information

Magnesium (element from the group of alkaline earth metals, atomic no. 12, a chemical symbol - Mg), one of the most important health microelements, participates in the synthesis process of the disintegration of high energy compounds and processes of transformation of hydrocarbons and fats. It affects the dilation of blood vessels and lower blood pressure, prevents hypercoagulable state. Shortages affect cardiac arrhythmias, malignant muscle cramps, insomnia and anxiety. It is a component of many dietary supplements and found in foods such as whole grain bread, legumes, buckwheat, rice, fish, meat, as well as chocolate, cocoa and nuts.
Dosage of 100 - 500 mg / day

Magnesium oxide

Information

Magnesium oxide – the most common form of this macroelement in supplementation that is essential to the human body. It belongs to a group of key intracellular cations and that is why its adequate levels are critical to maintaining the body’s homeostasis. An active lifestyle increases requirements for magnesium and that is why its supplementation is recommended strongly to athletes.

The most common symptoms associated with magnesium deficiencies are muscle cramps and eye twitches. This is connected with a significant impact of magnesium ions on the efficiency of the nervous system. Its adequate intake helps maintain neuromotor fitness. Deficiencies of this element are also said to aggravate symptoms of depression.

What is more, magnesium supplementation supports healthy cardiovascular function. It is suggested that its deficiencies promote the development of atherosclerotic lesions and hypertension. Too low dietary magnesium intake is associated with arrythmia and increased risk of heart attack.

Magnesium supplements are recommended to individuals doing hard mental work and learning. Its healthy levels enhance focus and may facilitate learning. It has a beneficial impact on sleep quality.

Magnesium citrate

Information

Magnesium citrate is a salt of magnesium and citric acid. It constitutes one of the best assimilable forms of magnesium, which plays many important functions in the organism. It is responsible, among others, for the proper work of the nervous, immune and muscle systems.

Magnesium has calming effect by decreasing the excitability of nerve cells. Thanks to introducing this element to a diet, we may potentially improve sleep quality and reduce the level of stress.

Positive influence on the circulatory system is another feature of magnesium. It prevents hypertension and storage of cholesterol in the walls of blood vessels (arteries), thanks to which it may prevent diseases related to the circulatory system.

Magnesium also plays a considerable role in the process of muscle contraction, therefore it influences the activity of the whole muscle system. It also takes part in the proper synthesis of protein, the process of cell division and proper course of energy metabolism. It helps to maintain healthy teeth and bones and general electrolyte balance in the organism.

Zinc

Information


Zinc (chemical element from transition group 12) belongs to the trace elements, it helps maintain acid-base balance of the body, protein, energy, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It provides bone metabolism and transport of oxygen. It protects the body against free radicals. Necessary for the proper operation of the senses of taste and smell. Positive impact on the process of insulin metabolism in the pancreas. It supports visual adaptation to the dark, has a significant influence on brain function. It is helpful in the treatment of infertility and mental illness.
Zinc deficiency leads to decreased immunity, and growth retardation. Zinc deficiency can occur in case of excessive consumption of simple sugars. In the case of hormonal therapy of women with irregular menstruation, the therapy should be associated with increased consumption of zinc. It can be found in food like: beans, eggs, carrots, beef and pork meat, milk, nuts, citrus fruits, seafood, rice, cottage cheese, lettuce.
Dosage: Daily 12-15 mg zinc. Exceeding the daily dose of 20 mg cause symptoms of poisoning of the body.
