The Health Benefits of Zinc & Magnesium

Zinc & Magnesium supplements contain a perfect combination of the two trace minerals, zinc methionine and magnesium citrate. Zinc and magnesium tablets can help to:

  • Reduce tiredness and fatigue
  • Boost natural energy production
  • Support normal fertility and reproduction
  • Maintain healthy bones

Why Use A Zinc And Magnesium Supplement?

Zinc and Magnesium are two natural minerals that we need for a variety of bodily functions, from energy production to cognitive health. But the modern Western diet is typically high in carbohydrates and grains, which aren’t great sources of zinc or magnesium. In fact, ScienceDaily has estimated that as much as 50% of us have a magnesium-deficient diet.

Leafy greens and vegetables are good sources of zinc, as are meats, but if you don’t get enough of either, supplementation is important.

What Are The Benefits Of Zinc?

As an essential mineral, your body simply won’t work properly without zinc.

  • It’s involved in the regulation and reactions of processes and enzymes throughout your body.
  • Enzyme and hormone regulation – enzymes and hormones need a little help being made, and then doing what they need to, to keep you healthy. You can think of zinc like a key, unlocking the reactions going on inside. Without zinc, those enzymes and hormones, responsible for everything from energy to fertility, fall short.
  • Feeling frisky? Zinc plays an important role in fertility. A healthy reproductive system relies on this essential mineral, so make sure you’re getting it.
  • Taking care of your immune system – just like its role in enzyme and hormone regulation, zinc is a key player in a normally functioning immune system, and without it, you could have more sick days. Good for catching up on Netflix, not so good for your career.

What Are The Health Benefits Of Magnesium Supplements?

Magnesium deficiency is the second most common deficiency in developed countries, right behind vitamin D.

  • It’s an essential mineral with profound effects on blood pressure and insulin regulation.
  • Reduce blood pressure – High blood pressure can lead to heart disease, stroke and other serious conditions. Keeping your blood pressure regulated involves regular exercise, a healthy diet and supplementation with magnesium (if you are lacking.)
  • Improve your mental health – Magnesium has also been linked to easing the symptoms of depression. Better mental focus and clarity may be another benefit of supplementing with magnesium.
  • Magnesium supplementation has also been linked to improvements in ADHD symptoms.
  • For those of you who do regular exercise, magnesium is also vital for keeping your muscles healthy and firing as they should.
  • Your energy metabolism – how efficiently you use energy from your food – also relies on adequate levels of magnesium
