Cacao and Magnesium | Collagen MOJO
Magnesium helps maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy heart, immune system, and helps bones remain strong. It also helps adjust blood glucose levels, and aids in the production of energy and protein. Collagen MOJO is an excellent source of Cacao, which is naturally high in magnesium.
Magnesium plays a central role in almost every bodily process, including muscle and nerve function; reproduction; blood pressure regulation; DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis; and cellular energy production. We cannot survive without it, yet around 50 percent of the population has an inadequate intake, putting a considerable number of people at risk for deficiency.
Cacao is vital for over 300 different chemical reactions that happen millions of times in our body every day. It plays an important role in our cells’ ability to make energy from our food – and so lack of magnesium can be a cause of fatigue and low energy. It’s crucial for our muscles to work properly to allow us to move, and for nerve signals to be transmitted around the body and brain. And magnesium is also important for our bones, and needs to be in balance with calcium and other minerals for this purpose.
Cacao is often described as "nature’s tranquiliser", because it plays a role in allowing our muscles to relax; and also because it may help us moderate the body’s release of stress hormones such as adrenaline. What’s more, being under a lot of stress may cause our body to use up magnesium more quickly, and so it’s doubly important to get enough.
Pure cacao may contain as much as 499mg of magnesium per 100g, which is more than 130% of our recommended daily intake.
Collagen MOJO is a blend of hydrolyzed collagen peptides powder and powerful antioxidants, including organic cacao, and organic matcha green tea. It’s also the best tasting collagen powder mix, and a major mojo booster!
