Roctane magnesium plus capsule
What does the “Plus” stand for in Magnesium Plus?
Besides magnesium, we’ve included three critical micronutrients our formula: Vitamins D3, K2, and Zinc.
- Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be produced by the skin with enough sunlight exposure. However, as many as 70% of American adults are considered deficient in Vitamin D, particularly during winter months. Vitamin D is critical to bone and muscle health and plays a role in immune function. Deficiency is associated with brittle, porous bones, muscle weakness, and increased incidence of upper respiratory illness in athletes.
- Vitamin K2 (specifically, K2-MK 7, which is considered the most beneficial form of the vitamin) is important for heart and bone health. It assists Vitamin D with calcium handling and directs calcium away from arteries (where it can cause damage and increase risk of cardiovascular disease) and into the bones, where it’s needed.
- Zinc is an “essential” nutrient meaning it cannot be created by the body and must be obtained through diet or supplementation. It plays a vital role in wound healing and immune function and is a cofactor in numerous biological processes, including DNA synthesis. Zinc deficiency results in impaired immunity and is common in athletes because of heavy sweat losses.
How do I know if I’m deficient in magnesium?
Simple blood tests are the best way to evaluate your levels of specific micronutrients. Speak with your primary care physician or schedule a test with 3rd party biomarker testing services, such as InsideTracker to get yours checked.
Will I achieve benefits if I don’t take them regularly?
For best results, it’s advisable to take daily for a week or more, especially during heavy training periods or when traveling.
What if I don’t have a deficiency in magnesium, is it still good to take Magnesium Plus Capsules daily?
Yes! Most adults can benefit from the other active ingredients in Magnesium Plus Capsules: Vitamins D3, K2, and Zinc. Not to mention, many adults get less than then recommended intake of magnesium and don’t even realize it. Take Magnesium Plus Capsules daily to help improve cardiovascular, bone, muscle, and immune health while promoting recovery from training and overall athletic longevity.
