Relaxation of the muscles

The supplement Magnesium and Taurine contributes to the relaxation of the muscles, the smoother functioning of the muscles, and the recovery after an intense (training) exercise.

  • Magnesium plays an essential role in many enzymatic reactions in the human body. The most notable effect is magnesium's contribution to good muscle tension. In that role it often seems indispensable when using creatine. It reduces the risk of the so-called 'creatine cramps'.
  • With magnesium your muscles will be more flexible, which is beneficial for your work-out.
  • Taurine promotes recovery after heavy exertion.
  • Magnesium reduces the chance of sore muscles after heavy exertion.


Type of magnesium

Magnesium is often used in food supplements. There are supplements with very different magnesium compounds for sale. Of some of these compounds it is said that they are absorbed best by the body. Of magnesium citrate and magnesium lactate it is claimed that they are absorbed for about 90%. Magnesium oxide on the other hand would only be absorbed for 25%. 

What almost no-one knows is that the absorption of magnesium in scientific studies is measured over a relatively short time span. After about 4 hours the tests are usually already finished. In a recent study, the absorption of various magnesium compounds was measured over a period of two days after intake. This study showed that the magnesium oxide is just as well absorbed as the 'better absorbable' forms. It just takes a lot longer.

Magnesium oxide can be seen as a 'slow-release' form of magnesium. But magnesium oxide also contains 4 to 6 times more magnesium per gram than most other magnesium compounds. In addition, magnesium oxide is alkaline and leads less quickly to stomach and intestinal problems than, for example, the acid magnesium citrate. 

In our supplement both forms are used, to provide the right amount of magnesium, to have both a fast and slow absorption of  magnesium and at the same time have a supplement that is mild enough for stomach and intestants.


Contraindications and warnings
