Magnesium - a super nutrients for female health

Magnesium really is a super nutrient for female health and wellbeing; it teams up with B-vitamins to support hormone balance, nourishes the nervous system and plays a vital role in energy production within each and every cell.

Over 60% of magnesium is stored in bones, where it provides more mineral power, working with other minerals to form the crystalline structure inside bones, utilising calcium efficiently and maintaining energy production for osteoclasts and osteoblasts, the two types of bone cells.

For women, bone health becomes a particular concern following the menopause as the protective effects to bones offered by oestrogen are no longer present.  In fact, 1 in 2 women over the age of 50 will fracture a bone due to poor bone health and an estimated 2 million women in England and Wales suffer from osteoporosis.

There are imbalances between calcium and magnesium in the average British diet, with large amounts of calcium being provided in comparison with very low levels (an average of 267mg) of magnesium of which the recommended daily amount is 375mg.

Recent research has highlighted the importance of magnesium and myriad other co-factor nutrients needed to work alongside calcium and vitamin D for maintaining healthy bones.  These nutrients include phytoestrogens, flavonoids, antioxidant nutrients, and trace minerals selenium, zinc and copper.

Supplementing with a highly bioavailable form of magnesium such as magnesium citrate is a sensible approach; this organic form of the nutrient is absorbed and utilised easily by the body, providing you with the best support for bone health.
