How important is it for you to have the proper amount of magnesium in your body?

Magnesium is an essential nutrient that plays very important roles in more than 300 cellular reactions including those used for normal bone structure, muscle relaxation, blood clotting, and the manufacture of ATP (energy). To say the least, having the proper amount of magnesium levels are incredibly important to keep your body functioning properly.


What is magnesium? Where is it found? Why it is important, and where can I get it? Magnesium is a mineral found in the earth, sea, plants, animals and humans. Believe it or not, magnesium is also found in every cell in your body and is needed by the cells in order to function correctly. Magnesium plays several important roles in the health of your body and brain. It is known to help convert food into energy, help create new proteins from amino acids, help to create and repair DNA and RNA, is part of the contraction and relaxation of muscles, and helps regulate neurotransmitters to send messages throughout the brain and nervous system. Even if you eat a healthy diet, you may not be getting enough magnesium.

At REGENERATE we can help you maintain healthy levels of magnesium. We offer intravenous supplementation either in our vitamin and mineral drip therapies (IV infusions) or directly via an IV push. You may be wondering why receiving vitamins and minerals, such as magnesium, is important to receive through an IV.  If your body is not getting enough magnesium through nutrients (food) or through supplementation (oral), you may consider an IV approach.

IV therapy can help your body regulate its systems more efficiently than oral supplementation. IV nutrients enter your bloodstream directly and immediately, making them more available for your body to absorb. Please give us a call or drop us a line online, and we would be happy to educate you on what is most beneficial for your needs.
