Magne B6 is a drug intended to restore the amount of magnesium in the body. Magnesium is the eleventh most abundant element by mass in the human body and is essential to all cells and some 300 enzymes. Magnesium ions interact with polyphosphate compounds such as ATP, DNA, and RNA. Hundreds of enzymes require magnesium ions to function. It is engaged in transmission of nerve impulses and muscle contraction. Normal levels of magnesium are important for the maintenance of heart and nervous system function.

The body consumes magnesium with food. Its deficiency may occur as a result of eating disorders (including reduction diets) and an increased need for magnesium in case of intense physical or mental activity, stress, pregnancy or the use of diuretics. Losses of magnesium from the kidneys also become a common cause of magnesium deficit.

Pyridoxine (vitamin B6), one of the drug’s main ingredients, participates in various metabolic processes, and in regulating metabolism of the nervous system, in particular. It improves magnesium absorption from the digestive system into the body’s cells.

The normal adult value for magnesium is 1.5-2.5 mEq/L. Lesser amounts are the evidence of magnesium deficiency, also known as hypomagnesemia. It may cause fatigue or muscle weakness, mental numbness and lack of emotion. Scientists have suggested that deficiency may also cause anxiety and raise blood pressure.

Indications

Magnesium deficiency (might be in combination with other deficiencies) with increased irritability, sleep disorders, stomach cramps, palpitations, fatigue, pain and muscle cramps or tingling sensation.
