Aliness Magnesium Citrate with Potassium and B6 is a dietary supplement that provides perfectly absorbable forms of magnesium and potassium. These elements are essential for the proper functioning of the body on many levels. In addition, this preparation is enriched with the active form of vitamin B6, which significantly increases the absorption of magnesium and helps to maintain its concentration at an optimal level.
Magnesium citrate is a compound that is a combination of citric acid and magnesium. Citric acid is a common organic acid found in a cell, playing an important role in the Krebs cycle, also known as the citric acid cycle. This cycle is one of the stages of a complex process of energy generation (in the form of high energy ATP bonds) in the cellular mitochondria.
Salts of citric acid (including magnesium citrate) are soluble in water, therefore combining the acid with magnesium allows its dissolution and absorption from the gastrointestinal tract into the blood, from where it can reach all cells of the body.
Magnesium is a key element for the functioning of our body at the cellular level as well as at the level of tissues or organs. In the cell, magnesium allows the occurrence of numerous biochemical reactions, because it is involved in the activation of enzymes that catalyze various metabolic pathways, associated, among others, with the transformation of carbohydrates, proteins or fats. It is also necessary for the formation and stabilization of cell membranes, without which cells and their organelles (intracellular structures) could not exist. Importantly, the divalent magnesium cation takes part in the bonding of the ribosomal subunits, which enables a life process of protein biosynthesis.
When considering the whole organism, magnesium is one of the main building blocks of teeth and bones. It also determines the proper functioning of the muscles and the nervous system, because it affects the nerve conduction and excitability. Not without significance is its influence on the endocrine system, because it is necessary for the synthesis and release of many hormones (e.g. insulin or catecholamines), through which it affects the functioning of the whole system.
In addition, magnesium has a cardioprotective effect – it prevents hypoxia of the heart muscle. It may also prevent painful muscle cramps, as well as positively affect the body's defenses by activating proteins of the complement system.
Potassium citrate is a combination of citric acid with a potassium atom. As in the case of magnesium citrate, citric acid determines the appropriate potassium bioavailability and may be used for transformations in the Krebs cycle.
Potassium is one of the major intracellular cations that is of great importance in maintaining the potential of cell membranes. This potential allows, among others, the conduction of impulses by nerve cells, as well as the communication of cells and reacting to stimuli coming from the environment.
The proper level of potassium is absolutely necessary to maintain electrolyte balance and normal heart function. It also regulates the osmotic pressure and blood pH. Potassium deficiency causes the impairment of many organs, but initially may be manifested by limb edema or muscle cramps.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxal-5-phosphate) is a biologically active form of vitamin B6. Similarly to magnesium, it has a multidirectional effect on the body. Without vitamin B6, the occurrence of numerous biochemical reactions involving enzymes would not be possible, neither the functioning of the kidneys, heart or nervous system. Vitamin B6 is also helpful in relieving symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome and PMS.
An extremely important function of this vitamin is its ability to increase the absorption of magnesium by up to 20-40%, as well as to facilitate its transport to cells and maintain the proper level of this element for longer.
In summary, Aliness Citrate Magnesium with potassium and B6 is a 3-in-1 supplement, containing synergistically interacting ingredients, extremely important for health: magnesium, potassium, and vitamin B6. They promote the proper functioning of almost the whole organism and, due to the highest bioavailability ensured by vitamin B6, are the key support in conditions of their deficiency.
The preparation is recommended in case of a deficiency of vitamin B6 or magnesium. These shortages may be manifested, for example, by chronic fatigue and increased irritability, which may be caused by stress or conditions of increased magnesium demand.
Supplementation with this product should be considered especially by people who consume a lot of coffee, which may cause magnesium to flush out of the body and, as a result, painful muscle spasms.

Magnesium citrate is a salt of magnesium and citric acid. It constitutes one of the best assimilable forms of magnesium, which plays many important functions in the organism. It is responsible, among others, for the proper work of the nervous, immune and muscle systems.
Magnesium has calming effect by decreasing the excitability of nerve cells. Thanks to introducing this element to a diet, we may potentially improve sleep quality and reduce the level of stress.
Positive influence on the circulatory system is another feature of magnesium. It prevents hypertension and storage of cholesterol in the walls of blood vessels (arteries), thanks to which it may prevent diseases related to the circulatory system.
Magnesium also plays a considerable role in the process of muscle contraction, therefore it influences the activity of the whole muscle system. It also takes part in the proper synthesis of protein, the process of cell division and proper course of energy metabolism. It helps to maintain healthy teeth and bones and general electrolyte balance in the organism.
Magnesium (element from the group of alkaline earth metals, atomic no. 12, a chemical symbol - Mg), one of the most important health microelements, participates in the synthesis process of the disintegration of high energy compounds and processes of transformation of hydrocarbons and fats. It affects the dilation of blood vessels and lower blood pressure, prevents hypercoagulable state. Shortages affect cardiac arrhythmias, malignant muscle cramps, insomnia and anxiety. It is a component of many dietary supplements and found in foods such as whole grain bread, legumes, buckwheat, rice, fish, meat, as well as chocolate, cocoa and nuts.
Dosage of 100 - 500 mg / day
Potassium citrate is an organic form of potassium, which is characterized by high level of absorption. This element is essential in the proper functioning of the organism. It regulates water balance, thanks to which it is possible to maintain homeostasis.
Potassium also helps to maintain proper blood pressure and is essential to maintain proper work of the heart. I takes part in the proper functioning of the nervous system - it takes part in nerve impulse conduction and supports the work of the brain by its oxygenation.
Introducing potassium to a diet is incredibly vital in case of sportsmen, as during long-lasting effort, it decreases the risk of the organism’s dehydration. It also ensures proper work of muscles. This element is also essential in the process of protein synthesis.
Potassium and sodium regulate the body's water resources, ensuring normal heart rhythm. Maintaining the proper level of potassium provides the proper oxidation of the brain, lowers blood pressure, increases the permeability of cell membranes (as an antagonist of calcium). It is a base-forming element. It is widely used in sports diet before and after training in the form of supplements, nutrients, vitamin-mineral preparations and minerals, concentrates and ready, isotonic and hypertonic beverages. Natural sources of acquisition of potassium are: vegetable products (bananas, citrus fruits, melons, mint leaves, green vegetables, potatoes) and animal products (sea fish, meat). Potassium is present in the form of organic compounds: citric acids, and fumarates gluconates and inorganic (chlorides, sulfates, oxides and carbonates).
Potassium deficiency (hypokalemia): excessive tiredness, headaches and irritability, problems with sleeping, muscle cramps, constipation. Potassium levels may drop sharply in the event of a reduction in blood sugar levels, prolonged starvation, severe diarrhea. They can occur when too much of strong coffee is consumed, with alcohol abuse and when eating too much sweets.
The excess of potassium (hyperkalemia) is often the cause of depression, hypotension, tingling in the extremities.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine) is soluble in the liquid. It participates in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. By reducing the amount of fat in the blood do not enable deposition of the body. It helps the absorption of magnesium and vitamin B12 (cobalamin). It works on the muscle antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory pain in the joints. It acts anti. It provides efficient operation of the brain. It increases energy increasing vigor of a man. The demand for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and breast-feeding infants. The natural product is: yeast, eggs, wheat germ, meat (liver), wheat bran, nuts, peanuts peanuts, soybeans. There is a hypothesis that can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
Deficiency of vitamin B6 causes abnormal metabolism of proteins, decrease in lymphocytes in the blood, causes a feeling of lethargy and fatigue intensifies.
Dosage: 1.5-2.5 mg daily (increased demand during pregnancy and lactation).
Pyridoxal 5-phosphate (P-5-P) - the form of vitamin B6, called coenzymatic, considered the best assimilable form of this vitamin by the human organism. This is related to direct metabolic activity of pyridoxal-5-phosphate in the human organism. It does not have to be subjected to biochemical transformations in the organism in order to be able to enter metabolic pathways as a biologically active ingredient.
Vitamin B6 is an incredibly important factor regulating the work of many processes in the organism due to its role in the organism as a coenzyme, essential for the activation of many important enzymes. Thanks to this, it regulates metabolism at many levels and its proper supply is conducive to maintaining homeostasis of the organism.
Another aspect of effectiveness of vitamin B6 is its influence on the normalization of emotional states. It is conducive to relaxation, facilitates falling asleep and falling in a deep, the most valuable sleep. Special influence on P5P on the psyche is proven in women before menstruation, as it demonstrates considerable ability to reduce the symptoms of the pre-menstrual syndrome.
Supplementation with vitamin B6 also demonstrates positive influence on the functions of the nervous system. It is conducive to the nourishment of neuronal tissues and optimizes the secretion of neurotransmitters, thanks to which it promotes nervous transmission and demonstrates neuroprotective properties. It was proven that vitamin B6 may decrease the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.
Some sources also suggest the ability of pyridoxal 5-phosphate to reduce the risk of cancer. This effectiveness is noted especially in relation to breast cancer.
