What is Effervescent Magnesium + B6?
HS Labs Effervescent Magnesium + B6 is a delicious effervescent formula providing bioavailable magnesium and vitamin B6 - two key micronutrients that regulate a multitude of physiological processes and are especially important for healthy mood and stress relief.1
Moreover, magnesium is one of the most abundant essential minerals in the human body and a cofactor for more than 300 biological functions, including:
- Muscular contraction
- Cardiovascular function
- Nervous system function
- Bone mineralization
- Blood sugar balance
Research suggests that as few as 30% of adults meet the recommended daily intake (RDI) of magnesium, which is 380-420 mg.2 Magnesium deficiency can significantly increase the risk of muscular weakness and impairment in motor function, as well as osteoporosis, dehydration, and neurodegenerative disease.
By the same token, vitamin B6 deficiency is most likely to occur in those who regularly drink alcohol, and this is associated with poor mood and depressive episodes. Supplementing with vitamin B6 man help avoid these complications.3
It is ideal to consume magnesium in conjunction with vitamin B6 as they work synergistically throughout the nervous system.
Benefits of Effervescent Magnesium + B6 Supplementation
Magnesium and vitamin B6 work via many pathways to support a myriad of essential processes throughout the body.
One mechanism is by helping your body properly absorb and utilize both calcium and vitamin D3, both which are key for overall wellness and a multitude of physiological processes, particularly bone mineralization, muscle function, and cardiovascular health.4
Furthermore, recent clinical evidence suggests that magnesium deficiency is strongly correlated with feelings of anxiety, likely due to a dysregulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis which is responsible for producing stress hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline.5
In line with these findings, clinical research has shown that healthy magnesium levels help reduce cortisol levels, thereby promoting relaxation, normal circadian rhythms, and healthy blood sugar balance.6
Complementary to magnesium, vitamin B6 appears to play a key role in supporting symptoms of stress and adrenal exhaustion, primarily by assisting the metabolism of L-tryptophan into 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) - which eventually is metabolized into serotonin.7
As such, supplementing with Effervescent Magnesium + B6 helps to:
- Promote healthy muscle function
- Enhance bone mineralization
- Encourage healthy cardiovascular function
- Reduce stress and improve mood
- Support healthy blood sugar levels
