Magnesium Soothe for Heart Health

Magnesium Soothe for Heart Health

Magnesium is a mineral that is absolutely essential for a healthy heart and overall cardiovascular wellness. The recommended daily minimum amount for adult males is 400–420 mg per day and approximately 310–320 mg per day for women. Since it is estimated that as much as half of Americans are low in this mineral, Nature’s Lab created Magnesium Soothe powder to help you get this nutrient into your diet in a simple and taste bud-friendly way. 

Magnesium Benefits for the Heart

Magnesium and Heart Rhythm: Having optimal electrolytes in your system, like potassium, is a crucial factor in maintaining a steady heart rhythm. Potassium and other ions cannot reach the heart without adequate magnesium levels. If you aren’t getting enough magnesium, your electrolyte balance is thrown off kilter. Low potassium levels are often related to low magnesium, as these nutrients work in tandem for proper electrolyte balance. Electrolytes are needed for muscle contractions, and the heart muscle is no different. Adequate magnesium intake is one aspect that influences the rhythm of the heart.

Magnesium and Circulation: Our blood vessels are responsible for carrying oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Keeping blood pressure levels within a normal range is vital for the heart to be able to receive the oxygen it needs to function. Magnesium relaxes and dilates blood vessels, promoting healthy circulation.* For more in depth information about Magnesium’s benefits be sure to see the article Magnesium: The Essential Mineral.

Magnesium and Cortisol: Cortisol is a hormone that is released at times of stress. We need some cortisol, but excessively high levels of cortisol can wreak havoc on the cardiovascular system. Research shows high cortisol is linked to unhealthy blood pressure and heart rate levels. Magnesium affects neurotransmitters in the brain and also NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptors that regulate our response to stress.* Magnesium’s effect on the central nervous system contributes to a sense of calm which supports a resilient response to stress.* Magnesium Soothe includes not only 350 mg of magnesium per one teaspoon serving, but also 50 mg of l-theanine. L-theanine is an amino acid abundantly found in tea leaves. It’s responsible for the sense of relaxation one gets from consuming a cup of white, black or green tea.* Both magnesium and l-theanine support balanced cortisol levels.*

Although Magnesium Soothe powder has light carbonation, it mixes well in smoothies, juice and other foods. The limit is only your imagination. Here are a few ideas on how you can use Magnesium Soothe to increase your magnesium intake.
