Two important minerals are integral to heart health: magnesium and potassium. Nerve cells use these minerals to fire off messages that keep the heart pumping and muscles contracting. Maintaining magnesium and potassium balance is the key to sustaining healthy cardiovascular function. Potassium and magnesium deficiencies often coexist, so supplementation with extra potassium alone, does not always correct a potassium deficiency. Studies have shown that supplementation with magnesium can assist in regaining potassium balance. Potassium and magnesium are minerals required in tandem for proper functioning of the cells and organs in the body.
Activated Mag & Potassium (Mg & K) provides 170 mg of magnesium and 85 mg of potassium per serving, both ideally formulated using amino acid chelate forms, including Albion® magnesium glycinate chelate buffered and potassium glycinate complex for enhanced absorption, optimal utilization and gastrointestinal (GI) comfort. Some individuals, who take other forms of magnesiumpotassium supplements, may experience GI side effects, including gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation or a combination of these symptoms. Supplementing the right form of these minerals can be key to maintaining GI comfort while achieving healthy levels of these important minerals in the body.
