Look After Your Health with Magnesium Products from Apollo Pharmacy

Explore a wide range of magnesium supplements at Apollo Pharmacy and take care of your body’s overall well-being.

Magnesium is an essential nutrient for the proper operation of bodily functions. Besides maintaining our heart and bone health, it facilitates several biochemical reactions. It is significant for building protein, maintaining muscle movement and nerve functions, and regulating blood sugar levels and blood pressure. A magnesium deficiency can result in reduced calcium and potassium levels, leading to a higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and migraine.

Although we naturally consume magnesium from food such as nuts, seeds, legumes, and leafy vegetables, it might not fulfil the required daily magnesium intake. That is why magnesium supplements are necessary to meet the amount of magnesium your body needs to function smoothly.

At Apollo Pharmacy, you can choose from an array of the best magnesium products according to your needs – from pure magnesium tablets to a combination of magnesium with zinc, vitamin D, or calcium, as required.

Benefits of Daily Magnesium Intake

Apart from bolstering muscle movement, assisting in the correct functioning of nerves and maintaining our heart rhythm, there are several other magnesium supplement benefits, such as:

  • These supplements improve insulin function, thus lowering the risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • They can help control high blood pressure and strengthen cardiac muscles, decreasing the chances of developing cardiovascular disease.
  • Magnesium controls several neurotransmitters responsible for sleep and can assist in treating sleep disorders.
  • These supplements can also help control the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
  • They can provide relief from period pain and other PMS symptoms in women.
  • With no major magnesium side effects, regular intake may help reduce headaches and migraines.
  • These supplements, when combined with calcium, boost your bone health.
  • Magnesium also has anti-inflammatory benefits and is used for treating asthma.
  • Taking magnesium tablets can provide relief from constipation.

Who Should Consider Taking Magnesium Supplements Regularly?

Normally, our body can retain a considerable amount of magnesium. However, some people should consider taking magnesium tablets regularly due  to a low intake of magnesium through their diet or if their body flushes out magnesium faster than it should. Many other factors can put you at risk of having magnesium deficiency, such as
Losing an excessive amount of magnesium through sweat and urine due to prolonged consumption of alcohol.

  • Having gastrointestinal diseases such as Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, or regional enteritis, which result in chronic diarrhoea.
  • Having high blood sugar levels, which causes frequent urination and can release magnesium from your body faster.
  • Being pregnant or lactating.
  • Having issues such as thyroid disorders and hyperaldosteronism.
  • Being older, as with age, your body tends to absorb less magnesium from food, and your kidneys remove it faster.
  • Consuming certain medications, such as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), diuretics, bisphosphonates, and antibiotics.

If you have any of these risk factors, consult your healthcare provider about the dosage and type of magnesium supplement you need.
