Info: Available in 200g or 400g in Orange & Lime Flavour, or in 200g Berry Flavour
MagSense provides magnesium in a readily absorbed and well-tolerated form, along with a number of vitamins and other cofactors to enable it to be used most effectively, in an easy-to-take powder, in order to help maintain proper muscle function and address other possible magnesium deficiency symptoms such as those described below. It comes either in the original Orange & Lime flavour or a Berry flavour.
This product is gradually being rebranded under the WomenSense MagSense name, with an identical formulation; you might receive one which looks like the third picture.
Magnesium is a cofactor in over 300 of our enzyme systems regulating biochemical reactions, including ones involved in protein synthesis, blood glucose and blood pressure regulation, and muscle and nerve function (including heart rhythm). And while there are ample sources of magnesium in many foods and even water, deficiencies can occur (particularly if you suffer from certain gastrointestinal diseases or type 2 diabetes or use certain medications or high amounts of alcohol), and that can result in a broad range of symptoms, affecting everything from the head(-aches) to the bones (osteoporosis). When it's the muscular system requiring more, different types of muscle soreness, tension, twitches, or cramps can occur -- including restless leg syndrome, neck pain, backaches, tension headaches and jaw joint (TMJ) dysfunction -- because magnesium enables muscles to relax. This also appears to extend to blood pressure: studies have found high blood pressure can be significantly lowered by a diet high in magnesium, potassium, and calcium.
