So Many Benefits of taking Active 8!

Fast food, diuretics, alcohol, caffeine, refined and processed food, weight loss programs, influenza and the fast paced stressful lives of everyone today creates the need for magnesium and potassium supplementation.  Even certain drugs can contribute to potassium deficiency.

Magnesium is an essential macro mineral, like calcium, and quickly leaves the body.  Decreased levels of magnesium have been shown to be related to high blood pressure, kidney stones, heart disease (especially heart attacks due to coronary artery spasm), fatigue and PMS syndrome.

 

Potassium is an essential mineral, absorbed quickly in the small intestine and functions with magnesium and calcium in the regulation of neuromuscular activity.  It is essential for normal growth, to stimulate nerve impulses for muscle contraction and preserve proper alkalinity of the body fluid and regulates the water balance and acid-base balances in the blood and tissues.

 

Active 8's unique patented formula includes these

very important minerals that your body needs!


RESEARCH BACKS THIS UP!

Researchers have found that the ingredients in Active 8 are essential for converting blood sugar into energy.  The lack of these ingredients in modern processed foods suggests that the body does not have all the agents required to metabolize these sugars.  In Health and Healing , Dr. Julian Whitaker refers to recent tests in which the ingredients used in Active 8 increase energy levels by 50% and speeded up the burning of fat.

Dr. Lawrence Resnick, endocrinologist and cardiologist at Cornell University Medical Center in New York has discovered that every individual with high blood pressure has lower than normal levels of magnesium inside their cells.  The intracellular magnesium, called free magnesium, differs from magnesium in the blood steam, which is known as circulating magnesium.  Furthermore, this low level of magnesium inside the cells occurs not only in hypertensives, but in people who are obese and in diabetics.  Resnik’s discovery may help explain why these three conditions are so often found in the same individual.

Dr. Elson Haas, M.D. author of Staying Healthy with Nutrition, states supplementing magnesium has been shown to be very helpful in alleviating many symptoms related to the menstrual period.  Menstrual cramps, irritability, fatigue, depression and water retention have been lessened with magnesium, usually given along with calcium and often with vitamin B-6.

Dr. Haas has also stressed the importance of potassium.  Potassium is a very significant body mineral, important to both cellular and electrical functions.  It is one of the main blood minerals.  Potassium is very important in the cellular biochemical reactions and energy metabolism; it participates in the synthesis of protein and amino acids in the cell.  Potassium also functions in carbohydrate metabolism; it is active in glycogen and glucose metabolism, converting glucose to glycogen that can be stored in the liver for future energy.  Potassium is important for normal growth and for building muscle.

Dr. R.D. Abbott (and others) - Magnesium shown to lower heart disease risk.

Based on a 30 year study of over 7000 men, researchers from the University of Virginia School of Medicine concluded that "...the intake of dietary magnesium is associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease.*" Their findings were reported in the American Journal of Cardiology.  Men with lower intake of magnesium had a 50-100% greater likelihood of developing coronary heart disease than those with the highest intake.
