Magnesium is a mineral needed by every cell of your body to help maintain normal cardiovascular, muscle, nerve, bone, and cellular function. It is imperative for heart health and normal blood pressure.
Magnesium taurinate is the best form of Magnesium for the cardiovascular system, as Taurine affects enzymes in the heart muscle that contribute to contractility. Taurine also plays a role in the metabolism of calcium and may affect entry of calcium into heart muscle cells where it is essential in the generation and transmission of nerve impulses. Research shows that taurine prevents arrhythmogenesis by limiting cardiac hypertrophy and calcium overload of the myocardium. Taurine also protects the heart against reperfusion-induced arrhythmias via its properties as a membrane stabilizer and as an oxygen free radical scavenger.
Since magnesium and L-taurine share complementary cardio benefits (including the transport of calcium and potassium through the bloodstream), they make an ideal combination for the heart.
