Magnesium

(25mg as magnesium oxide)

Magnesium is one of the body’s key electrolytes, minerals that carry an electric charge when dissolved in body fluids like blood. Most of the magnesium in your body is bound to protein or bone and is in an uncharged state. Magnesium is critical for building strong bones and teeth, as well as proper nerve and muscle function. Magnesium also plays a role in the active transport of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes, a process that is important for proper nerve functioning, muscle contraction and normal heart rhythm.

Some good, natural sources of magnesium are: almonds, spinach, cashews, peanuts, soymilk, black beans, edamame, baked potatoes, brown rice, yogurt, kidney beans, bananas and salmon.

The critical role magnesium plays in bone growth and healthy muscle function is exactly why we included it in the formulation for our Jele hydration tablets.
