Magnesium

Our magnesium or magnesium glycerophosphate (11.7% magnesium element content) is one of the forms best absorbed by the body. This mineral is essential for energy production, but is also involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions.

Dose: 480.77mg per capsule (which is an equivalent of 56.25mg of magnesium element)

Scientific evidence

Magnesium is an essential mineral for staying healthy as it plays an important role in the body (muscles, nervous system, bones, energy, etc.). According to the Suvimax study*, 20% of women are lacking in magnesium.

A magnesium deficiency is rare and often related to disease. Inadequate intakes are more common and can manifest themselves as loss of appetite, digestive problems (nausea, vomiting) and fatigue. In reality, the body does not have a reserve of magnesium, so this mineral needs to be provided every day to cover the body's needs.

The recommended daily dose varies with age. For women, it is around 300mg to 350mg and is set at 300mg for pregnant and breastfeeding women.
