The total content of magnesium in the human body is about 25 g, 50-60% of which is found in the bones. It is a cofactor in more than 300 enzymatic reactions. It also aids the production of energy, plays a role in certain transport mechanisms, and helps maintain adequate intake of purine and pyrimidine nucleotides during states of increased need for nucleic acid synthesis.
Proper magnesium intake contributes to:
- Reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- Electrolyte balance
- Normal energy-yielding metabolism
- Normal muscle and nervous system function
- Normal protein synthesis
- Normal psychological function
- Maintenance of normal bones and teeth
- Cell division
Magnesium is a natural component of the ingredients in ManaPowder and ManaDrink. We also add it in the form of magnesium oxide.
