Magnesium & Muscle Relaxation

Magnesium can aid muscle relaxation by 2 mechanisms. It can suppress the excitability of the muscle fibre membrane by

  1. Inhibiting Calcium movement out of the cell membrane
  2.  inhibiting acetyl-choline production

Both of these mechanisms enable the muscle to relax by preventing the sustaining of muscle contractions.

 

Migraines can be eased as Magnesium can control the NMDA glutamate receptors, which influence cerebral blood flow & modulate pain transmission within the central nervous system.

 

We stock Magnesium in may forms powders, tablets, capsules & in a variety of flavours to add to water or smoothies. Do not hesitate to ask us.
