Magnesium and his secrets for optimal health.

Magnesium was voted supplement of the year in 2018. Next to vitamin C and multivitamins, it is therefore the most sold supplement in the Netherlands. But is magnesium really that important for us and for what reason?

Why is magnesium so popular?

Magnesium is probably the most familiar mineral we know and use every day. Not surprisingly, because it plays a role in the most important biological processes in nature and in our bodies. This powerful mineral is therefore one of the most common elements in nature. This is also the case in our bodies. It is found in the blood, the bones and the cells. As a result, it fulfils many important functions throughout the body. Magnesium is therefore necessary to be healthy, there is no doubt about that. These are the main functions of Magnesium:

  • Helps in healthy cell functioning[SOURCE].

  • Ensures healthy, strong and flexible muscles[SOURCE].

  • Affects the reduction of fatigue[SOURCE].

  • Ensures the proper functioning of the nervous system[SOURCE].

  • Helping to build body protein[SOURCE].

  • Ensures balance of water and minerals[SOURCE].

  • Releases energy from food[SOURCE].

Where do we get magnesium from?

We are lucky that magnesium is actually everywhere in nature and therefore also in our food. The healthiest sources of magnesium are spinach, banana, dark chocolate and avocado. It is also found in whole grain cereals. Although it is not advisable to eat too much of this, because cereal products also contain a lot of phosphorus and phytic acid. Both substances cause a poor absorption of magnesium. The absorption of magnesium from food varies from 20 to 60%. This depends on the quantity in the food. Strangely enough, the more magnesium you eat, the lower the percentage that your body absorbs. In addition, magnesium is poorly absorbed by people with intestinal problems. Another reason for a magnesium deficiency is the excessive amount of calcium that we take in through food. The required ratio of calcium to magnesium (2:1) is often disturbed. The magnesium supply is then depleted. Another reason for a deficiency is that the absorption of magnesium decreases with age[BRON]. It is therefore common for people to suffer from a magnesium deficiency. The WHO reports that this is the case in at least 20% of the Western population. The consequences of a magnesium deficiency are quite serious, so magnesium supplementation can never hurt. Balance of Magnesium, Calcium, D3 and K2

Many people know the functions of magnesium. It is often used to combat fatigue or cramped muscles. The lesser known function of magnesium is its interaction with calcium. The two minerals need each other to function properly in the body. So they are interchangeable. When you take in a lot of calcium, magnesium is also used. Therefore, calcium intake must be accompanied by sufficient magnesium, otherwise the magnesium will be depleted. In recent years it has become increasingly clear that magnesium also influences the way vitamin D works[BRON]. This is because it supports the action of vitamin D enzymes, which regulate both the activation and breakdown of vitamin D. This makes it all even more interesting, because vitamin D in turn ensures the absorption of calcium from our diet[BRON]. Are you starting to see the connections? Doctors and therapists often recommend combining vitamin D3 with calcium. However, this in turn leads to a magnesium deficiency because too much calcium is absorbed. Another thing that should not be underestimated is that when calcium is absorbed by vitamin D, it does not reach its proper destination without vitamin K. This vitamin ensures that calcium actually reaches the skeleton and does not calcify in the wrong tissues[BRON]. Calcification of the arteries and even heart problems are the result. So it is the combination of vitamin D, K and magnesium that ensures that calcium can do its work and not cause problems[BRON].

These are the forms of Magnesium that we stand behind Liposomal Magnesium

When you take magnesium as a supplement to get the required amount, this does not seem to be a problem. At every supermarket, drugstore and webshop it is possible to buy magnesium supplements. Unfortunately, 95% of these are chemical and unnatural products that may be absorbed by the body, but do nothing good in your body. In fact, it is more likely to do harm. So first of all, always choose a natural magnesium. The very best is to take Liposomal Magnesium, which is up to 20 times more absorbable (read how that is possible HERE ), so that you are assured of sufficient absorption every day. We recently started selling our own Liposomal Magnesium. In our opinion, the very best magnesium available. Switch to the best absorbable magnesium and support your body in the most natural way possible! Liposomal D3 K2 Magnesium

With our Liposomal D3 K2 magnesium you get a complete package of good nutrients, which effectively support each other. Vitamin D3 is important for the absorption of calcium into your blood. Vitamin K2 ensures that the calcium is sent to the right place in your body. And magnesium reinforces this process even more. Vitamin K2 in this dietary supplement ensures that this calcium ends up in the right place in the body, for example in bones and teeth. Magnesium, also present in this high-quality dietary supplement, strengthens this process. Magnesium is a mineral involved in the formation of bones and the maintenance of strong bones and teeth. The combination of vitamin D3, vitamin K2 and magnesium in this Liposomal D3 K2 Magnesium is therefore a very important one. In fact, taking vitamin D3 is often pointless without vitamin K2. The main function of D3 - absorbing calcium from food - is not effective without vitamin K2. Our Liposomal D3 K2 Magnesium contains only pure ingredients of natural origin and the highest quality. In addition, by using natural liposomes, this liposomal supplement has an unprecedented high bioavailability. Magnesium Glycinate

Magnesium Glycinate from Vimergy contains magnesium in the form of magnesium glycinate. This is an organic form of magnesium. It occurs in our food in exactly the same form and is therefore easily recognisable by the human body. Scientific studies show that this makes for more efficient absorption. Magnesium glycinate is a compound of magnesium with two glycine molecules. Glycine is an amino acid. A substance in which a mineral is bound to an amino acid is also called a chelate. In English, this principle is also called chelated. Minerals, such as magnesium, are by far best absorbed by the human body in the form of a chelate. Vimergy Magnesium Glycinate is therefore highly absorbable.

You deserve a better life!
