Magnesium and potassium are electrolyte minerals that have many important functions, including maintaining the activity of nerves and muscles, regulating water retention and supporting a healthy acid-base balance. Studies suggest that 50-90% of the population is deficient in magnesium, and deficiencies in potassium often occur along with magnesium deficiencies since the minerals are closely related in function. Taurine is the most abundant free amino acid within the heart muscle and shares many of the same functions as magnesium, making it an ideal complement to the mineral.
Magnesium, potassium and taurine are essential for healthy cardiovascular function. The heart health benefits of magnesium and potassium are mostly due to their electrolyte effects on cells and nerves, supporting the ability of nerves to transmit signals and the ability of muscles to contract, both of which are important to regulate heart rhythm. A deficiency in either magnesium or potassium can result in high blood pressure, and many studies have found supplementation with either mineral to be effective for lowering blood pressure. Even mild deficiencies in potassium may result in nervous disorders, insomnia, and irregular heartbeat. Nutritional research has also proven taurine’s ability to lower blood pressure, stabilize membranes and regulate the heartbeat. In repeated studies, taurine has been shown effective for regulating heartbeat, as well as for minimizing the damage caused by a lack of oxygen to the heart tissues.
Mag-K-Taurine is ideal for those looking for a synergistic, highly absorbable mineral supplement to correct a magnesium or electrolyte deficiency. Mag-K-Taurine is especially effective in maintaining healthy blood pressure and to counterbalance an irregular heartbeat.
AOR’s Mag-K-Taurine is an electrolyte formula free of sugars that fill most electrolyte supplements. It provides an important balance of magnesium and potassium for good nerve and muscle contractility along with taurine for maintained heart function.
Taurine helps support cardiovascular function. Magnesium and potassium are minerals that are factors in the maintenance of good health and help maintain proper muscle function.
