Melcalin® MgK

Pack: 28 sachets of 6,1 g
Net Weight: 170,8 g

Melcalin MgK thanks to its magnesium and potassium ratio contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, helps the normal functioning of the nervous and muscular system and contributes to a good psychological function.

Description:

Melcalin MgK is a food supplement to dissolve in water made of magnesium and potassium in which the ratio of magnesium and potassium (1:4,8) was evaluated by measuring instrumentally (BIA-ACC BioTekna /in vivo neutron activation method IVANA / measure of K40) the recovery of the values of total potassium and of extracellular potassium on a sample of subjects with electrolyte disorders, medically unexplained symptoms (MUS) and related conditions.
Magnesium is essential for the production of energy, the maintenance of electrolyte balance, for a correct neuromuscular function as well as for the homeostasis of calcium and potassium 1,2,3,4,5,6: a magnesium deficiency is linked to a deficiency of potassium and calcium; therefore, its integration is also useful for healthy bones and teeth. Potassium intervenes in nerve transmission, in the regulation of the electrolyte balance, in the control of muscle contractility and arterial pressure7,8,9.
It is therefore easy to notice the benefits of a combined supplementation of the two ions to all excitable tissues of the body (muscular, cardiovascular, nervous, gastrointestinal )10,11,12,13,14,15.
