The Many Benefits of Magnesium Citrate

Magnesium is a mineral that is critical for many functions in the body, including 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.*

Magnesium citrate is a form of magnesium that is bound to citric acid. It is commonly used as a laxative or to treat heartburn and indigestion. However, magnesium citrate also has many other benefits. For example, magnesium citrate can help support energy production* and enzyme function.* It is also involved in muscle contraction and nerve impulse transmission. Additionally, magnesium citrate helps to regulate calcium levels in the body.

How Magnesium Citrate Supports Energy Production*

ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is the body's main source of energy. Magnesium plays a role in ATP production by binding to ATP molecules and helping to release energy from them.* Magnesium citrate can help support energy production by providing magnesium that can be used by the body for ATP production.*

In addition to being involved in energy production, magnesium is also critical for enzyme function.* Enzymes are proteins that catalyze biochemical reactions in the body. These reactions are essential for many processes, including digestion, metabolism, and cell division. Magnesium acts as a cofactor for enzymes, meaning that it is required for their activity.*

There are approximately 300 enzymes that require magnesium as a cofactor. *These enzymes are involved in reactions such as fatty acid synthesis, protein synthesis, and glucose metabolism.* By providing magnesium, magnesium citrate can help support enzyme function.

Magnesium Citrate and Muscle Contraction*

Magnesium citrate can also help support muscle contraction.* Magnesium is necessary for muscle contraction because it helps to maintain the electrochemical gradient across cell membranes.* This gradient is necessary for both skeletal and smooth muscle contraction. Additionally, magnesium helps to relax muscles after contraction. *By providing magnesium, magnesium citrate can help support muscle contraction and relaxation.

In Summary:

Magnesium citrate is a form of magnesium that has many benefits. It can help support energy production*, enzyme function*, and muscle contraction*. Additionally, it helps to regulate calcium levels in the body. If you are interested in taking magnesium citrate to improve your health, speak with your healthcare provider to see if it is right for you.
