Preventing magnesium deficiency and associated symptoms: Magnesium intake has been shown to be inadequate in teenagers aged 14 to 18 years (61% of males and 72% of females) and adults over 19 years of age were found to have inadequate magnesium intake (41% males and 35% females).
Indicators of magnesium deficiency include muscle symptoms (weakness, spasms or cramps) and/or fatigue, which may be induced by conditions such as exercise or emotional stress.
Magnesium has a relaxing effect on smooth muscle. It is used for muscular spasm, cramping and irregular contractibility of muscle. Magnesium is able to depress the excitability of the muscle fibre membrane and inhibit contraction to exert a muscle relaxant effect. Meta Mag®. is a unique chelated form of magnesium. This form of magnesium has demonstrated superior bioavailability due to its ability to traverse the challenging forces in the digestive system.
