Glucosamine is a key factor in stimulating bone cells to produce more collagen, proteoglycans, and chondroitin sulfate. This is the process the body uses to rebuild cartilage. If cartilage metabolism is supported, the reversing of cartilage damage and joint pain often occur.
Magnesium is an essential electrolyte mineral involved in maintaining a healthy body. The primary function of magnesium is to activate enzymes. Research shows that 72% of adults in America do not receive the recommended daily intake (RDI) for magnesium. It is often thought that magnesium needs can be easily met through a daily multiple vitamin, but multiple vitamins containing magnesium typically only consist of 10% of the magnesium required daily.
The inadequate intake of magnesium can lead to many health consequences due to magnesium's diverse roles in the body. Sixty percent of the body's magnesium is stored in the bone, which is why our bones generally suffer first during magnesium deficiency. An adequate amount of magnesium can aid in long term bone health. Magnesium is also critical for adequate nerve health, responsible for controlling important muscle and brain functions.
In addition, magnesium is needed for energy production, dental health and cardiovascular support. Good sources of magnesium can be found in wheat bran, wheat germ, nuts, legumes, soybeans, dark, leafy greens and halibut - although most people do not obtain sufficient amounts through the diet alone.
Three capsules (one serving) of Mega Magnesium provides 400 mg of magnesium (from amino acid chelate 64%, citrate 10%, and malate 26%) which is 100% of the required daily amount.
