Indications of the magne B6 Fort
Insufficient intake of Magnesium into the human body has negative consequences: cramps, insomnia, hair loss can occur. A person becomes irritable (sometimes aggressive), he is suffering from pain in the heart, frequent and sudden jumps of blood pressure. All these phenomena can be the first symptoms of magnesium deficiency in your body. Treatment should be started immediately, so as not to aggravate the situation. After all, if you do not fill the balance of magnesium in time, then its lack can lead to problems of the cardiovascular system, as well as myocardial infarction.
Pyridoxine dissolves well in water, so it can be easily removed from the body. Therefore, it is required to constantly replenish its reserves. In the modern world, a person receives a large daily mental and psychological load. In order to cope with all this and not to experience stress, the body needs a sufficient amount of energy and amino acids. Energy and amino acids we get from the food that we use. And pyridoxine is necessary for their normal assimilation.
As a result, it can be said that Magne B6 Fort is needed to prevent the development of heart disease, stress, insomnia; for the beauty of your hair and nails.
Magne B6 forte is released in the form of tablets and in the form of solutions for oral administration (ampoules). Unlike tablets, which contain only about 48 mg of magnesium, magnesium ampoules are much larger (up to 100 mg). The same applies to pyridoxine, which in tablets contains 5 mg, and in ampoules - 10 mg. The solution, too, has a pleasant smell of caramel.
In Magne B6 forte contains two main useful ingredients - magnesium and vitamin B6.
Magnesium is an important trace element for the human body. He is involved in the energy processes of the cell, improves the mechanism of nerve impulse transmission in the musculoskeletal tissue, stabilizes the work of the heart and the state of the blood vessels.
Vitamin B6 promotes the absorption of magnesium from the gastrointestinal tract and its penetration into the cells of the body. As mentioned above, pyridoxine helps the body absorb amino acids and energy from food for normal life. In addition, the vitamin takes part in the production of blood cells and immunity, in the exchange of proteins and fats.
Absorption (absorption) and distribution
Absorption of magnesium occurs in the digestive tract. From the gastrointestinal tract, no more than half of the magnesium is absorbed from the dose received inside. That is, 50%.
In the body, magnesium is distributed in the smooth and striated muscles, and also in the bone system.
Most magnesium comes out with urine.
Use of the magne B6 Fort during pregnancy
The amount of magnesium in the body of a pregnant woman is sharply reduced, because most of it goes to the development of the musculoskeletal system of the child. A deficiency of this trace element can lead to convulsions, increased uterine tone (as a result, often a miscarriage occurs), tremors of hands and feet. With a low content of magnesium in the body, the pregnant woman becomes too nervous (which is very harmful to the future baby) and sluggish; she does not sleep well and eats, constantly feels tired. Also, pregnant women may have problems with digestion, pain in the epigastric part of the abdomen.
If you suddenly find yourself with the above symptoms, then you should immediately contact your doctor. If necessary, he will appoint you Magne-B6 forte. And self-medication (especially pregnant women) is categorically prohibited.
As you can see, magnesium is very important for the human body, and especially for a pregnant woman. But, in addition to magnesium, the Magne B6 Fort also contains vitamin B6, which is also very important. After all, it is not for nothing that they call it "the most feminine vitamin". Pyridoxine takes part in the formation of blood cells and immunity in the child. In addition, it is required for the construction of the nervous system of the baby.
Magne B6 forte should not be taken if you have problems with the exchange of amino acids, fructose intolerance if you have stomach ulcers, severe liver and kidney disease, or coronary heart disease. Magne B6 fort is contraindicated in those who have hypersensitivity to at least one of the ingredients of the drug. In addition, children under six years of age are also prohibited from taking the drug. People with hypotension should remember that magnesium has the property of reducing blood pressure, which can adversely affect the health of hypotension.

And in patients who suffer from kidney disease, an overdose of Magne B6 Fort can lead to serious poisoning of the body, due to excessive accumulation of magnesium in it. And he accumulates because because of the lack of normal functioning of the urinary system, magnesium does not have time to be excreted from the body.
