Magnesium is an essential mineral, which is present in the body, mostly in our bones (52 %) and in our muscles (28 %), but also in small quantity in the blood serum and red blood cells. The main dietary sources of magnesium are vegetables, fish, nuts and hazelnuts, and whole grains.
Magnesium is involved in over 300 reactions in the body. It occurs, for example, in muscle contraction, protein synthesis, oxygen transport, energy metabolism and immune functions and hormonal. Magnesium contributes to muscle function normal. A few examples:
magnesium plays a major role in the neuromuscular activity and in the initiation of muscle contraction
magnesium intervenes, among others, as a cofactor in the production of ATP in the mitochondria (energy production in the energy centers muscle).
Magnesium is required for the extraction of energy, when the phosphocreatine is converted into creatine (PCR-Cr is one of the 3 energy systems of the body; it is mainly used during short, intense efforts)
a magnesium deficiency sufficient damage to the structure of muscle cells
These examples show that a lack of sufficient will result in fatigue and may therefore have a negative effect on performance. The consumption of magnesium helps prevent muscle cramps. Dehydration (lack of fluids) can cause muscle cramps, as well as a deficiency in important minerals (magnesium, sodium, potassium, and calcium).
Several factors, such as the power supply is little varied or rich in calcium can cause a magnesium deficiency. Athletes also lose more magnesium through sweat and urine, in other words, their needs magnesium increases from 10 to 20 %. It is well known that the lack of magnesium impairs the function of muscle and causes muscle weakness. The extra magnesium is a good solution for athletes.
Etixx Magnesium Moment Stick is a supplement of magnesium that uses an amino acid (AA: amino acid) in the form chelated form. This form of packaging has the advantage of protecting the magnesium (because of the \"coating\" of amino acid) and enable him to reach the small intestine virtually intact, which ensures better absorption. Magnesium is also supplemented in vitamin C which provides extra protection against muscle stress oxidative. A vitamin C deficiency reduces the synthesis of L-carnitine in the body. It is an amino acid that the mitochondria need to burn fatty acids. Vitamin C is also involved in the synthesis of collagen (a protein component of the connective tissue in the human body). 50% of the total vitamin C present in the body is in the muscles.
