MAGNESIUM is strongly recommended when:
■ During a long-haul trip not allowing you to rest properly.
■ After an exhausting trip to recharge your batteries quickly to be operational.
■ You are lacking energy and have accumulated fatigue.
Ingredients and scientific evidenceOpen tab
Magnesium citrate is a preparation of magnesium in salt form with citric acid in a ratio of 1:1 (1 atom of magnesium per molecule of citrate). This association has indeed shown the best rates of assimilation and is better tolerated. It is the solution that is regularly used for premium quality products.
Magnesium is an essential mineral: it participates in the functioning of more than 300 enzymes that are involved in energy source reactions (especially for muscles and brain). Considered by the scientists as the "energy" mineral, a lack of magnesium leads to neuromuscular hyperexcitability.
Symptoms can appear on the mental level with anxiety, irritability, morning fatigue, headaches or insomnia. They can also magnify on the muscular level with cramps and for example exaggerated tiredness during effort.
Although magnesium is essential for the functioning of the body, its intake is often well below the recommended level. Magnesium is found in certain types of foods including nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
HOW DOES MAGNESIUM REDUCE TIREDNESS AND FATIGUE?
Magnesium as an essential mineral is involved in energy metabolism, cardiorespiratory function, and muscle actions. It is required as a cofactor for over 300 enzymatic reactions and is required for fundamental processes such as energy production and nucleic acid synthesis.|1|$Schwalfenberg G.K., et al. (2017). Scientifica, 4179326.$
The demand for magnesium may be increased in accelerated metabolic situations, indeed physically active individuals may have higher magnesium requirements in order to maintain an optimal level of exercise performance.|2|$Zhang Y., et al. (2017). Nutrients, 9, 996.$ Magnesium plays a critical role in maintaining physical endurance as well as regulating bone structure.
Furthermore, magnesium is invovled in the transport of potassium and calcium across cell membranes. In the nervous system, magnesium is important for neuromuscular coordination and optimal nerve transmission.
There is further evidence that a lack of magnesium leads to oxidative stress, it is suggested that the underlying mechanism, inflammation associated with low magnesium levels known to increase the production of free radicals potentially contributing to the development of health conditions.|3|$Tardy A.L., et al. (2020). Nutrients, 12, 228.$

I tried the 10 gummy-pack, 1 per day. Compared to other magnesiums, this one has a great taste and no added sugar!
Magnesium plays an obvious role in many cellular processes. There is nothing better to stay fit.
It takes 10-14 days to get it home. It is better to know before leaving... :-(
With my many business trips I really needed something to keep me from running out of energy. And it works!
Too bad there are only 10 gummies - But good taste
