Viridian High Potency Magnesium contains 300mg of magnesium in each vegicap.
It is an abundant mineral in the body – on average, the human body contains 25g of magnesium, and 60% of this is found in the bones. It is a cofactor in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body and is therefore vital for a number of cellular processes.
Improving Magnesium intake
Current food practices with high levels of processing mean that magnesium intakes have significantly decreased in recent years. Another factor that is leading to reduced magnesium intake is poor soil quality with reduced mineral levels – due to the widespread use of artificial fertilisers.
This has resulted in a reduced mineral content in vegetables, including magnesium. Magnesium is important for the normal function of muscles and metabolism. Magnesium also contributes to the maintenance of bone health and reduces fatigue.
