Why Choose Relax?

Relax provides a specialist blend of nutrients to support healthy functioning of the nervous system, particularly during times of stress, and can help to relieve muscle cramping. The formula provides a synergistic combination of magnesium, the amino acid taurine, vitamin B6, folic acid and B12. Magnesium is a very important mineral, involved in hundreds of enzymatic reactions in the body. It is known as 'nature's tranquiliser' as it has a calming effect on muscles and nerves. Taurine is a precursor to GABA, an inhibitory neurotransmitter, which produces a sense of calm, and also helps to retain magnesium within the body's cells for longer. B vitamins contained within the formula are in their body-ready active forms, meaning they don't require conversion before they can be used. B vitamins are known to contribute to normal psychological health and function and may also contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin B6 is also known to enhance the action of magnesium. 

 

What is Magnesium Glycerophosphate?

Magnesium glycerophosphate is a fat-soluble magnesium salt which has exceptional absorption capacity and is gentle on the GI tract. By making more magnesium available for absorption, supplementation aims to increase the amount of magnesium taken up by the body.

 

What is Taurine?

Taurine is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body, and is a simple, sulphur-containing compound. It is a precursor to GABA, an inhibitory neurotransmitter, which has a soothing effect on the nervous system producing a sense of calm.

 

What are the Benefits of Magnesium?

Magnesium is a mineral that is essential to life, and is found in every cell type in every organism. It is needed for hundreds of reactions within the body. The data from the most recent NDNS (National Diet and Nutrition Survey) shows that many of us in the UK are not meeting the RNI (reference nutrient intake) for magnesium1, meaning our intake is insufficient. The magnesium content of plant foods is known to have decreased by 20-30% over the last 60 years.2 Unfortunately poor soil, as well as cooking, storing and processing methods can mean that even those eating a balanced diet might not be getting as much magnesium as they need. 

 

Magnesium contributes to the:

- energy-yielding metabolism

- reduction of tiredness and fatigue

- electrolyte balance

- normal protein synthesis

- the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.

 

Who is at risk of magnesium depletion?

Magnesium depletion can be increased by chronic stress, infection, poor sleep, exercise, alcohol, salt, caffeine and fizzy drinks.
