Magnesium is a mineral that is critical for energy production and metabolism, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and bone mineralization. It is a required cofactor for an estimated 300 enzymes. Among the reactions catalyzed by these enzymes are fatty acid synthesis, protein synthesis, and glucose metabolism. Magnesium status is also important for regulation of calcium balance through its effects on the parathyroid gland.*
Comments about NOW Foods Magnesium, 400mg, Capsules, 180 ea:
My doctor recommended that I start using at least 400 mg. of magnesium daily for unpleasant constipation caused by some of my medications. This product greatly improved my problem, and I continue it daily to prevent this problem and for bone & heart health. As a wonderful side benefit, my blood sugar improved and is close to normal - without medication or any other changes to my diet. (Of course, I still have to watch what I eat.)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
