Magnesium is an inorganic element that is present in all cells of the body in its normal state. Magnesium is an essential element for cell life and is involved in most metabolic reactions. From a physiological point of view, magnesium is a cation of predominant intracellular localization. Magnesium ions reduce the excitability of neurons, play an important physiological role in maintaining the ionic balance in muscles, slow down neuromuscular transmission, and participate in many enzymatic reactions. Magnesium deficiency in the body is manifested by muscle weakness, tremors, tetany, ataxia, increased reflex excitability, irritability, sleep disorders, heart rhythm disturbances with extrasystoles or tachycardia, disorders of the digestive tract with diarrhea. Deficiency can be primary due to congenital impairment of magnesium metabolism and secondary due to lack of intake, as well as due to poor gastrointestinal absorption, excessive renal excretion and with an increase in the need for magnesium (with increased physical and mental stress, stress, pregnancy).
Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) as a coenzyme is involved in many metabolic processes, in the regulation of the metabolism of the nervous system. Promotes faster absorption of magnesium from the gastrointestinal tract, penetration and retention of magnesium in cells.
