Uses For Magnesium

Bone Health: Magnesium is an essential bone matrix mineral that attempts to promote healthy bone metabolism.*
Cardiovascular Support: Magnesium attempts to provide a broad-spectrum cardiovascular support, including arterial function, endothelial function, c-reactive protein metabolism and lipid metabolism. Magnesium also plays roles in muscle function, mood and calming, and cranial vessel comfort.*
