Magnesium-Diasporal® DEPOT muscles + nerves: Effect and correct intake

How do the two-phase tablets with DEPOT effect work and what is the right way to take them?

Everyone is familiar with the situation: when you are stressed or annoyed you hunch up your shoulders and ball your hands. As a result, your neck tightens up pulling your shoulder area with it and your whole body tenses. The interaction between muscles and nerves plays a key role since muscle contractions are triggered by a nerve impulse. This is why stressful situations (stress) have a direct impact on the muscles. It is even more important to ensure the muscles and nerves are working optimally in stressful times to prevent stress-related tension. Magnesium and a complex of B vitamins are essential for this.

The “muscle mineral” magnesium is an essential mineral which is involved in many processes in the body. It regulates the relaxation of the muscles after a muscle contraction. An insufficient supply of magnesium is evident in increased excitability of the muscles, ultimately leading to muscle tension. Magnesium also decreases the hyperexcitability of the nerves and regulates the release of stress hormones.

The B vitamins, often also called “nerve vitamins” are very important for the function of the nervous system. They are highly relevant for structure, functionality and regeneration of nerve cells. In stressful situations, the human body needs more B vitamins because more strain is placed on the nerves.  Together with magnesium they support against stress-related tension.

Magnesium-Diasporal® DEPOT muscles + nerves is a high-dose, two-phase magnesium combined with a vitamin B complex (B1, B2, B6 and B12). The two-phase tablet works on the principle of rapid and delayed release of magnesium (fast and slow release phase).

The magnesium received in the red fast-release phase requires acids to be released and then absorbed as Mg2+ ions, as magnesium can only be absorbed in this form. The fast-release phase therefore ensures very rapid release of the magnesium in acidic environments such as the stomach. The magnesium compound in the white slow-release phase does not require any acid to release the magnesium for it to be absorbed as Mg2+ ions.  Magnesium citrate is absorbed in the intestines, as magnesium separates from citrate in a slightly alkaline environment at a pH value of 8, as found in the small intestine. The specific technology leads to a delay in tablet breakdown in the slow-release phase, which leads to continuous, delayed magnesium release over several hours.

Nutrients for the nerves

We often talk about “nourishing the nerves”, but what does it exactly mean and what kind of food does our nerves need? B vitamins in particular play a key role, especially B1, B6 and B12. They are involved in nerve regeneration and nerve growth, as well as saltatory conduction, in other words the functioning of the nerves.

Magnesium is also our most important anti-stress mineral. It regulates the release of the stress hormone and has a calming effect on both nerve and muscle function. Since all muscle contractions are caused by nerve impulses, a constantly tense nervous system can lead to muscle tension.

Magnesium-Diasporal® DEPOT muscles + nerves contains a balanced combination of high-dose magnesium and the vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12 and only needs to be taken once a day. It does not matter whether it is taken in the morning, at lunch time or in the evenings, but what is important is that it should be taken shortly before a meal (15-30 minutes) to ensure the optimal gastric acid concentration for release in the fast-release phase. At this point the gastric acid concentration is at its highest.

Magnesium contributes to normal muscle function. The vitamin B complex (B1, B2, B6, B12) contributes to a normal functioning of the nervous system and energy-yielding metabolism.
