The combination of magnesium and vitamin B6 positively affects the metabolism of the cells of the uterus, as well as its muscle contractility. Therefore, Magne B6 is often prescribed during pregnancy for a long period of time, combining, as appropriate, taking it from taking other medications.
What is the effect of magnesium on the body of a pregnant woman
Magnesium is an inorganic element, participates in all biochemical processes that occur in the human body. It is present in all cells of the body, thereby maintaining proper metabolism

. Magnesium ions reduce the excitability of the nervous system, is maintained in good condition the muscular system, while suppressing increased muscle excitability, which is very important during pregnancy (suppression of the threat of termination of pregnancy).
Pregnant woman gets magnesium from food and if it is not enough (magnesium many in plant foods - bran, beans, dried fruit), then there are symptoms such as muscle weakness, a feeling of constant fatigue, a tendency to twitch muscles, insomnia, palpitations with cardiac rhythm. Furthermore, there may be such disorders of the gastrointestinal tract as loss of appetite, nausea and diarrhea.
Magnesium deficiency can be confirmed by laboratory tests. It is considered a moderate deficit of the presence in the blood of 0.5-0.7 mmol / L magnesium lower figures show pronounced deficiency of magnesium. Such a deficiency can occur due to violations of exchange of magnesium in the body or due to lack of receiving it with food. Pregnant women need more magnesium, so that in either case it is necessary to make up the deficit.
Magne B6 during pregnancy
Magne-B6 is a combined preparation, which consists of a magnesium salt and vitamin B6. This combination is best as vitamin B6 contributes to a better absorption of magnesium by taking part in many biochemical metabolic processes. It also contributes to the retention of magnesium in cells, especially cells of the nervous and muscular tissue, thus regulating the functioning of the nervous and muscular system.
It is very important during pregnancy because the increased neuromuscular activity can lead to increased muscle contractile activity of the uterus (uterine tone), that is, the threat of miscarriage. This state (raising the tone of the uterus), and contribute to anxiety
Anxiety - how to distinguish normal from disease?
Bad mood (depression) of the pregnant woman, her overexcitement, internal tension, lack of confidence.
A uterine tonic pregnant woman feels that her tummy is strained, as if petrified. This can occur nagging abdominal pain

and in the lower back. In this case, the woman should try to relax by taking a sedative (such as valerian root tincture), antispasmodic (eg, papaverine
Papaverine - for pain caused by spasms of smooth muscles
in the form of rectal candles - it will remove muscle spasm) and some time to comply with bed rest.
Perfectly it operates in such situations and Magne B6, which also calms the nervous system and reduces the tone of the uterus. The mechanism of action Magne 6 in this case is that it displaces the calcium from muscle cells, which is the main cause contraction of muscle fibers (of magic is a calcium antagonist). Furthermore, the decrease in blood calcium contributes to the fact that reduced danger of thrombus formation. A vitamin B6 reduces the excitability of the central nervous system, which also has a positive effect on the tone of the uterine muscle.
Magne-B6 is prescribed for a long time, sometimes for the entire pregnancy. But even this seemingly innocuous drug should not be taken alone: any drug during pregnancy appoint a doctor. If a pregnant woman at the same time accepts and other vitamins and minerals, the doses of these drugs are adjusted by your doctor.
After ingestion Magne B6 is well absorbed in the small intestine, while in the blood comes up to half of the magnesium contained therein. Magnesium blood enters the tissues of various organs, primarily in the bone tissue. In addition, many magnesium enters the muscle cells and erythrocytes. Displayed magnesium excretion, with more than half of it comes back from the kidneys into the blood, and only a minor part is eliminated.
Vitamin B6 after getting into the blood undergoes a series of transformations, thereby converted into the active form of the vitamin, which is involved in metabolic processes.
Magne B6 manufactured by the French pharmaceutical company Sanofi - Aventis group. This drug, which is vital during pregnancy.
