Highly bioavailable magnesium glycerophosphate to promote calm and relaxation
T-MAG® is a food supplement based on Magnesium, Taurine and vitamin B6, useful in case of food deficiencies or an increased need for these nutrients.
Stress, today’s hectic pace, and an unbalanced diet tend to deplete Magnesium reserves very quickly and can give rise to symptoms of magnesium deficiency such as tiredness, anxiety, tremors, insomnia, reduced ability to concentrate, cramps as well as constipation, tachycardia, hypertension and premenstrual syndrome. Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in our body, it regulates over 325 biochemical reactions and is essential for calcium absorption. Magnesium tends to be eliminated in the urine, but when combined with vitamin B6 and Taurine its capacity for intracellular penetration is increased and its elimination is drastically reduced. The components of T-MAG® work in synergy, improving the ability to manage psycho-physical stress; they promote the activation of cellular energy metabolism and help improve neuromuscular transmission and the ability to use oxygen.
T-MAG® promotes concentration and attention levels and has a positive effect on memory.
- Magnesium glycerophosphate
- Vitamin B6
- Anti-caking agents: magnesium stearate, micronized silica.
PROPERTIES OF THE INGREDIENTS:
- Magnesium glycerophosphate: it is one of the most bioavailable forms of intracellular magnesium. It is optimally assimilated and guarantees a high gastrointestinal tolerance. It regulates over 325 enzymatic reactions, the synthesis of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), cell permeability and muscle contraction. Essential for the absorption of calcium. It actively participates in energy production reactions (Krebs cycle).
- Taurine: it stabilizes and maintains the integrity of the cell membrane. Essential for the functionality of the brain, heart, eyes and vascular system. It regulates the flow of calcium and magnesium, which in turn regulates the contraction of the heart muscle. It improves hepathic metabolism and has a detoxifying action. It has a calming and stabilizing effect on the nervous system. It improves cardiac performance in sports people during physical effort.
- Vitamin B6: essential for the synthesis of neurotransmitters. It improves the ability to manage stress. It intervenes in the synthesis of hemoglobin and plays a fundamental role in the production of red blood cells. It acts in the conversion of homocysteine into cysteine. Essential for the synthesis of DNA and RNA. It activates the enzymes involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
