Magnesium OxideOrder Code: MMO
Magnesium is an essential mineral that serves as an enzyme cofactor for over three hundred biochemical reactions in the body, including glycolysis, the first step in harnessing energy from carbohydrates. It is estimated that between 50 and 80 percent of the American population are deficient in magnesium. This form of magnesium has a decreased absorption rate and therefore can be used to help relieve occasional constipation or indigestion. Magnesium oxide also acts as an antacid that can help alleviate acid reflux.
