Metagenics Fibroplex Plus Tropical 210g
In healthy people, ingredients in Fibroplex Plus have been clinically shown to or may assist in:
Fibroplex Plus may assist the symptoms of fibromyalgia and in the relief of muscular pain: Scientific analysis indicates compromised muscle energy metabolism and decreased ATP production in tender points are present in fibromyalgia. Magnesium is involved in the production of ATP in the mitochrondria to support energy production. A daily dose of 600 mg of magnesium has been shown to assist in the management and symptomatic relief of fibromyalgia, including symptoms such as pain and tenderness. Subjects reported a significant improvement in fibromyalgia pain within 48 hours of magnesium supplementation.
Muscle relaxation, cramps and spasm relief: Two mechanisms by which magnesium may induce muscle relaxation are; a suppression of the excitability of the muscle fibre membrane via acetyl choline inhibition and transportation of calcium out of the muscle fibre to inhibit muscle contraction and allow relaxation.
Migraines: Magnesium supplementation at a dose of 600 mg per day has been clinically shown to significantly decrease migraine frequency by 41.6% compared to the placebo group of 15.8%. Magnesium is involved in the control of NMDA glutamate receptors which regulate cerebral blood flow and play a role in pain transmission within the nervous system.
