SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jun 20, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Baywood International Inc. (OTBB: BYWD) announced that it has introduced Magnesium FIZZ(TM). Magnesium FIZZ combines optimal amounts of magnesium, vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B5 and B6, along with manganese, zinc, folate, biotin, chromium and selenium, in order to provide a magnesium-rich multimineral complex formula.
"Many of our customers have indicated an increased interest in magnesium by consumers. We were able to leverage the success of our effervescent delivery format to offer a great-tasting, effective magnesium-rich mineral formula," stated Dr. Lisa Maturo, N.D., scientific director of Baywood.
Magnesium is a mineral with many functions in the human body. In bone health, it plays a role in the structural integrity of bone, and plays a role in more than 300 fundamental life-dependent cellular reactions (especially in enzyme activation) in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. There is also an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. According to a new study in France, more magnesium and less copper could benefit health, and the increased intake of magnesium was linked to a 40% lower risk of all-cause mortality, and a reduction of similar magnitude for cardiovascular deaths.
"The research is significant because dietary surveys show that many adults do not meet the RDA for magnesium, which is found mostly in green leafy vegetables, meats, starches, grains and nuts, and milk," Maturo added.
