Apollo’s Hegemony Magnesium Malate + P5P is a dietary supplement containing the best assimilable magnesium in the organic form of magnesium malate, which is the combination of magnesium and malic acid.
Malic acid is the component naturally occurring in the organism and included in the composition of enzymes taking part in ATP synthesis, thanks to which it is distinguished by high bioavailability and also supports energy production in the organism. The preparation positively influences motor and mental abilities, decreases the feeling of fatigue, supports mineral balance of bones, carbohydrate metabolism and strengthens cardiovascular system.
Magnesium is an element, which plays a key role in maintaining proper functioning of the organism, especially around nerve-muscle and cardiovascular systems. It constitutes one of the most important intracellular cations in the organism, takes part in more than 300 enzymatic and metabolic reactions, is a calcium antagonist and has anti-inflammatory properties. Moreover, it protects from the decrease of mineral bone density and osteoporosis.
Magnesium deficit – a common problem
A disturbing fact is that magnesium deficit is quite common and is considered to be one of the most frequent problems regarding deficits right after vitamin D. Cereals unfortunately are not a good source of magnesium (environmental contamination, improper soil fertilization, food processing), while products abundant in this element, such as nuts and leafy vegetables most often are not a constant element of our diet. Additionally, there are many constituents negatively influencing magnesium metabolism – hence such common deficits of this element in highly industrialized countries.
The symptoms of magnesium deficiency are not characteristic and may concern many systems. Excessively low level of magnesium in the organism negatively influences the work of, among others, central nervous system and general mental well-being (depression, seizures, weaker memory and concentration, physical and mental fatigue, hyperactivity), nerve-muscle system (muscle contractions, weakness, seizures, limb numbness) and cardiovascular system (hypertension, cardiac dysfunction). Additionally, the influence of magnesium deficiency on other systems is also observed – digestive peristalsis disorders, decreased insulin sensitivity or asthma-like dyspnea.
Factors influencing magnesium deficits
There are many factors that may have a considerable influence on excessively low level of magnesium in the organism. The main causes are definitely insufficient amount of magnesium in the diet, limited assimilability of magnesium in the digestive system as a result of the intake of foods impairing its absorption (fluorides, tannins, heavy metal salts, fiber, oxalic acid) and the increase of magnesium elimination from the organism as a consequence of taking certain drugs (diuretics, antibiotics, cytostatic drugs, oral contraceptives) or alcohol and coffee. The increase of the demand for magnesium is also observed as a result of physical effort and in the period of pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Increased magnesium loss is also present in case of many ailments, such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism and kidney diseases with impaired reabsorption. An incredibly important factor of magnesium deficit is also psychological stress, which unfortunately constitutes an indispensable element of our life. Stress negatively influences the course of many processes in the organism – also those concerning magnesium. During a stressful situation, the increase of magnesium excretion with urine takes place and inactivation of magnesium ions, as a result of the activity of free fatty acids.
The meaning of magnesium in the treatment of hypertension
Magnesium ions work like calcium antagonists – they reduce excessive tension and reactivity of vessels and are responsible for inhibiting the inflow of calcium to cells, which explains the appearance of hypertension as a result of magnesium deficiency. The relationship between the application of appropriate magnesium doses and reduction of blood pressure has been confirmed in many scientific studies. It has also been proven that magnesium deficiencies are not only a developmental factor of hypertension, but they also may be conducive to the appearance of atherosclerosis, heart failure and stroke.
Proper activity of the central nervous system
Magnesium is a microelement playing the key role in the proper functioning of the central nervous system and its improper concentration in the organism may be the cause of many mental disorders. Proper magnesium supply influences the improvement of concentration, memory and decision making as well as stabilizes the mood.
Low level of magnesium in the system has been discovered in people with affective disorders. Interestingly, decreased concentration of magnesium observed during full-blown depression was reduced and restored to norm when the disease subsided. Magnesium also demonstrates a therapeutic effect – magnesium ions strengthen antidepressant effect of some drugs and show anxiolytic effect (anti-anxiety).
The improvement of carbohydrate metabolism parameters
It has been proven that magnesium deficits may contribute to the increase of insulin-resistance. It happens because this element also takes part in the process of insulin release and provides it to target places. Low level of magnesium in the system also impairs many enzymatic reactions responsible for the proper course of glucose metabolism and disturbs the activity of insulin receptors, which consequently decreases their sensitivity to insulin and may constitute one of the causes of the increase of the incidence rate of diabetes type 2 and increases the risk of the appearance of chronic diabetes complications.
Summing up, Apollo’s Hegemony Magnesium Malate + P5P is a dietary supplement effectively supplementing magnesium deficits. Highly bioavailable form of magnesium malate effectively counteracts deficits of this element, eliminates fatigue, increases tolerance to stress and contributes to the improvement of the functioning of the organism and especially cardiovascular and nerve-muscle systems.
