WHY CROWN SPORT NUTRITION? (41 SEC)?
Capsules with highly assimilable Magnesium
- High concentration of magnesium: 170 mg/capsule
- From 2 sources: Bisglycinate and Citrate
- With anti-doping certificate by Informed-Sport
- Organic salts for increased absorption and bioavailability
- Only 3 ingredients: no additives or excipients
- Allergen free and Suitable for Vegans
Magnesium Caps DUAL are vegetable capsules based on 2 highly assimilable sources of Magnesium, namely the organic salts Bisglycinate and Magnesium Citrate. No more and no less, i.e., no excipients or additional additives, only the vegetable capsule that covers it, which gives it a high purity, so they are also 100% allergen free.
Magnesium is the 4th most abundant mineral in the organism, that is why it is very important for the human being, since it fulfills infinity of functions being necessary for the correct functioning of the cardiovascular, immune and hormonal responses (Musso, C.G. et al., IUN. 2.009). Although following a balanced diet, with sufficient intake of vegetables, should be enough to have the necessary daily intake of Magnesium, we see that according to some studies (Mertens, E. et al., EJN. 2.019; Rosanoff, A. et al., NR. 2.012) this is not so and a large part of the population consumes less than the recommended daily intake (approx. 400 mg/day in men and 300 mg/day in women). This is due to the high consumption of processed foods, the impoverishment of water and soils for cultivation, etc., which makes supplementation necessary on many occasions. In addition, these deficits can occur not only due to a lack of sufficient Magnesium intake, but also because there may be interactions with other micronutrients (Iron and Zinc), malabsorption due to the use of drugs (Omeprazole, diuretics, etc.) or simply physiological factors that hinder its absorption (3rd age and certain diseases such as diabetes, Crohn’s disease, etc.) or that increase its excretion (kidney disease) or, simply, physiological factors that hinder its absorption (3rd age and certain diseases such as diabetes, Crohn’s disease, etc.) or that increase its excretion (kidney disease) and, finally, in those cases where a greater amount of it is simply needed, such as, for example, during pregnancy, breastfeeding or intense physical exercise.
Benefits for sportsmen and women
As we have just mentioned, physiological conditions that increase energy demands, such as physical exercise, also increase the demand for magnesium. This mineral is involved in countless fundamental processes for athletes such as, for example, the correct functioning, together with calcium, of muscle contraction and relaxation, as well as for the processes of anabolism, i.e., muscle creation and regeneration. In fact, magnesium levels have been related to testosterone, one of the main anabolic hormones, as well as to strength, muscle mass (Valenzuela, P.L. et al., EJN. 2.019) and jumping (Santos, D.A. et al., MR. 2.011). By acting as a cofactor for hundreds of intracellular enzymes, it is directly involved in obtaining and releasing energy such as biochemical processes related to oxidative phosphorylation and glycolysis. It is involved in nerve impulse transmission and is especially related to neuromuscular transmission processes, as well as in electrolyte balance, which could explain its possible involvement in muscle cramps (ramps). In addition, at a structural level, again together with calcium, it forms part of bone, teeth and soft tissues, extracellular fluid and is involved in the maintenance of cell membranes.
Its efficacy as an ergogenic aid, i.e., as an aid to improve performance, has not been demonstrated, but it does seem that having low levels of this mineral is negative in terms of performance, for example, making light exercises more costly (Lukaski, H.C. et al., HNM. 2.002).
Some important worldwide organizations such as the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) grant Magnesium important benefits such as those published in 2012 which are related to the above mentioned and which are summarized as follows: Magnesium helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue, and contributes to: normal energy metabolism, normal muscle function, normal protein synthesis, electrolyte balance, maintenance of bones and teeth in normal conditions, normal functioning of the nervous system, normal psychological function and the process of cell division.
Combination of Bisglycinate and Magnesium Citrate
There are numerous sources or salts of Magnesium, the differences between them are, on the one hand, the amount of Magnesium they contain and, on the other hand, the bioavailability of the same, that is to say, what percentage of the Magnesium provided is assimilable, and this is where the different types of salts come into play. We have the inorganic ones with higher and less assimilable contributions (oxide, carbonate, chloride, sulfate, etc.) and vice versa happens with the organic ones (citrate, bisglycinate, gluconate, etc.) (Pardo, M. et al., N. 2.021). Our capsules are made from organic salts, with a high bioavailability, such as Bisglycinate (Magnesium chelated to 2 molecules of the amino acid glycine) and Citrate (Magnesium bound to citric acid). All magnesium salts, organic and inorganic, a priori can be used to supplement us, the problem is that some have a very low assimilation and, therefore, can cause gastrointestinal discomfort. In addition, the choice of one or the other is important not only because of the above mentioned, but also because some can have more impact on some body areas or seek different objectives than others, therefore, you have to take this into account depending on the objective you are looking for when supplementing with magnesium. For example, some salts, such as threonate (not authorized in Spain) affect only the cognitive level, which is valid if we only seek to improve rest and relaxation, while other salts, such as citrate and bisglycinate, are distributed more generally, not only at the brain level, hence we have combined different salts, because our priority was to increase as quickly as possible the amount of total body level Magnesium (muscle, bone, brain, etc.) and not just focus on a single target.
High concentration, quality and purity
We have achieved that our capsules do not contain excipients, thus achieving a high purity and concentration of highly assimilable magnesium per capsule (170 mg) and, all this, without using magnesium oxides or other inorganic salts. These other salts (carbonates, oxides, etc.) can be used if the objective is to produce laxative effects, but in our case, this is not what we want.
And not forgetting that Magnesium Caps DUAL is 100% safe as it is anti-doping certified by Informed-Sport.
Directions for use: Take one capsule preferably before going to bed or as prescribed by your doctor or nutritionist. You can open the capsule and pour the contents directly into water (it will taste bad) or mix it with another beverage or food to mask it (milk, vegetable drink, juice, yogurt, etc.).
- Do not take in conjunction with a source or supplement of Iron and/or Zinc.
- If you want to improve sleep and rest: Take it about 30 – 40 minutes before bedtime as it helps the production of the neurotransmitters GABA and serotonin, and is necessary for the synthesis of the hormone melatonin, thus improving sleep and relaxation.
- Consult your doctor or nutritionist if you take the following drugs because you may need a higher dosage: Proton pump inhibitors (Omeprazole) and antacids, antibiotics, diuretics, hormonal contraceptives, insulin (in case you are diabetic), etc.
- Consult your doctor or nutritionist if you have any of the following diseases or pathologies because you may need a higher dosage: Diabetes, gastritis, hypothyroidism, Crohn’s disease, etc.
- You may also need a higher dosage if: You are in the 3rd age group, are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a high level of stress, suffer from insomnia, are at a time of the season with a high training load, etc.
