The food we eat, fruits, vegetables, milk and meat we eat do not contain the amount of magnesium found some generations ago .We hardly receive 70% of our magnesium requirement from our food. Consequently all of us need magnesium supplements. Sugar diet requires even more magnesium. Twenty eight atoms of magnesium are required to breakdown one molecule of glucose.
Serum magnesium test is not an accurate assessment magnesium in the body. This is because magnesium must remain at an effective level in blood to keep the hearting beating properly. If ther is magnesium deficiency, magnesium is pulled out of bones and muscles to fill the gap in blood.
RBC test of magnesium is most relevant but costly.
It is safer to assume magnesium deficiency and take regular mild doses recommended. In case of serious palpitations, diabetes, migraine, cramps and high cholesterol the dosage may be increased.
Not necessary at all. TEC-LIFE Calcium contains magnesium. All of the enzymes that metabolize Vitamin D ( Calcitriol) seem to require magnesium, which acts as a cofactor in the enzymatic reactions in the liver and the kidneys where the active Vitamin D (calcitriol) is produced. So, separate supplementation of calcitriol (Vitamin D) is unwarranted and may sometimes complicate matters as explained below.
Magnesium assists in the activation of vitamin D, which helps regulate calcium and phosphate homeostasis to influence the growth and maintenance of bones.. Even in sunny countries like India, people are Vitamin D deficient. Why? We really need to consider why our vitamin D levels seem so inadequate that we’re tempted to supplement in the first place. Vitamin D and calcium exist in a delicate balance. So maybe, just maybe, vitamin D levels are low because calcium levels are already too high. In such conditions if we consume Vitamin D supplement it could lead to excess calcium, hypercalcemia and hypercalurea. So, leave it to the magnesium in TEC-LIFE calcium to do the job for you and keep right levels of vitamin D
However, taking vitamin B6 and B2 with TEC-LIFE helps.
Far from it. The orotate portion is taken up by red blood cells and rapidly converted to Uridine Diphosphate-glucose enzymatically. The RBC then act as storage and distribution pool for delivering glucose and uridine to tissues such as brain, heart and skeletal muscles. Because UDP-glucose is a precursor for glycogen(a storage form of glucose), delivery of UDP-glucoseto heart muscle and its conversion there to glycogen might account for some of the cardioprotective effects of TEC-LIFE Magnesium.
Yes you can. TEC-LIFE Magnesium works the same way as stains – by slowing down the HMG-CoA reductase activity. But it does not have the bad side effects of statins. TEC-LIFE Magnesium has other lipid lowering functions not even shared by statins. TEC-LIFE Magnesium lowers LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. Even patients who have undergone cardiac surgery can benefit from protective effects of TEC-LIFE Magnesium.
Yes Of course. If the cell gates are not opened for the entry of blood glucose, too much glucose reaches kidneys. TEC-LIFE Magnesium sensitizes the cells towards insulin, either produced by our pancreas or got through injection. The cell gates open for the glucose and diabetes is controlled.
