Magnesium Aspartate

Properties and actions:

Bio-Mag plays an important role in the regulation of vascular tone and decreases the vascular resistance. Since magnesium serves as a co-factor in the sodium-potassium pump, it prevents accumulation of sodium and calcium inside the cell, which is the cause of increased peripheral resistance and vasospasm. Bio-Mag reduces muscles’ excitability and cramps through reduction of neurotransmitters (catecholamines) release. Also it relaxes irritable uterine muscles by stimulating β2-adrenergic receptors and cyclic AMP production. 
Bio-Mag’s natural amino acid aspartate is the carrier molecule for the transport of magnesium in cells. In addition aspartate is involved in DNA synthesis and in carbohydrate and protein metabolism.Aspartic acid is a major excitatory transmitter in the brain.
