AOR's Magnesium + Taurine is a synergistic combination of a vital mineral and an important amino acid which have a range of overlapping and mutually reinforcing beneficial effects.
Magnesium + Taurine can improve overall cardiovascular health through several areas of activity (which include balancing calcium levels in the heart and improving insulin sensitivity): helping calm the nervous system and reduce stress, by raising GABA levels; helping maintain healthy blood pressure, by relaxing blood vessels and improving heart muscle contraction; and helping prevent irregular heartbeats or arrhythmias, by inhibiting the over-excitability of the central nervous system, stabilizing cell membranes, and protecting cardiac tissue from oxidative stress.
In addition to symptomatic heart patients, it should be of particular interest to people with several types of health difficulties who are apt to have a relative deficiency of taurine and/or magnesium: diabetics; persons with liver or kidney failure; trauma patients; and individuals requiring long term intravenous feeding.
Magnesium and Taurine can also help regulate muscle function in general and help prevent and relieve muscle cramps (including those bothersome leg cramps at night), using such a highly absorbable form of magnesium that a much smaller quantity unlikely to cause digestive disturbance will suffice -- especially since taurine helps transport magnesium into cells. In fact, this combination can actually help the digestive system metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
