Magnesium is important for bones, teeth, muscles, nervous system and psychological function. In OmniVegan® Magnesium you get the entire 300 mg dosage per. capsule from two easily absorbable sources: pidolate and oxide.
The mineral for inner peace
All processes that require energy in the body need this essential mineral. It particularly ensures that our muscles relax and loosen up after physical activity. This also includes the heart muscle. Magnesium is a true all-round mineral. It is involved - along with Calcium - in the building and maintenance of the skeleton and teeth. It simultaneously stabilizes the interior of our cells. Moreover, it controls our muscle and nerve functions, as its concentration in our cells exclusively controls muscle contraction within the individual muscle cells. So far about 300 enzymes which require the presence of magnesium in order to be activated are identified, and it thereby plays an essential role in many of the body's vital processes. Only about one percent of the total amount of magnesium in the body is located in the blood. The bulk of this mineral within the organism is to be found in the bones and within every single cell of the body. The demand for magnesium for adults ranges from 300 to 600 mg daily. It should be noted that men - because of their greater skeletal mass - has a larger demand than women. For children up to four years a dosage of 80-85 mg is recommended. For children and young people up to 15 years a dosage of 120-300 mg is recommended.
Bones, teeth and muscles
Magnesium contributes to the maintenance of normal bone and teeth. About half of all magnesium is to be found in the bones. It also contributes to normal muscle function, and its important role in this context are the regulatory properties on muscle contraction.
Nervous system and psychological function
Magnesium also supports the nervous system’s normal function. The mineral has a beneficial effect on the nervous system’s ability to the transfer of information (nerve transfer/neurotransmitter). It also contributes to maintain normal psychological functions.
Fatigue and exhaustion

Magnesium content is relatively low in most foods, so it is necessary to regularly eat a varied diet consisting of magnesium-rich foods. Chlorophyll has a high content of this mineral and, therefore green vegetables are its rich source. Other good sources are nuts, seeds, whole grains, fish and seafood as well as drinks such as coffee, tea, cocoa and hard mineral water.
