Magne B6 - when not enough magnesium
March 4, 2010
Our body needs every day in enough magnesium, so it belongs to macroelements. Adult daily requirement for this mineral is 400 mg. Natural sources of magnesium are bananas
Bananas: the benefits and harms health
, Wheat germ, green leafy vegetables, almonds, flounder, carp, shrimp, dairy products.
Why there is a magnesium deficiency in the body and how it manifests itself
Magnesium contributes to proper operation of the heart, bone growth, regulate blood sugar levels, lowers blood pressure and improve brain function. Almost all of the magnesium in the body is found inside the cells. Approximately two thirds of the intracellular magnesium is distributed in the bone tissue, and third - in a smooth (in internal organs and blood vessels) and striated muscle tissue.
The body magnesium is supplied as part of the food and if it receives enough (for example, wrong, poor nutrition) or increases the need for it the body (with increased physical and mental load, stress, pregnancy, use of diuretics), it disrupted many organs and systems.
Insufficient dietary intake of magnesium is largely dependent on modern food processing and application of fertilizers, leading to a deficiency of magnesium in the soil, and hence in vegetable products. Causes of magnesium deficiency in the body can also be an excess of its natural antagonist - calcium, alcohol syndrome, malabsorption of food in the small intestine (malabsorption), endocrine diseases (diabetes, increased thyroid function, etc.), physical or mental strain, pregnancy, breast- her baby.
Magnesium deficiency can cause disorders of the cardiovascular system (high blood pressure, heart rhythm disturbances, spasms of the blood vessels supplying the heart muscle) and endocrine (diabetes) systems, neuro-psychiatric disorders (anxiety, depression, dizziness, migraine, memory disorders , convulsions). Hidden magnesium deficiency can manifest itself in the form of general weakness, depression, irritability
Irritability - you try to control my temper
, Dizziness, and so on.
The mechanism of action of Magne B6
Magne B6 - a combination drug that is available in the form of tablets and oral solution. The preparation consists of a magnesium salt (tablets contain magnesium lactate dihydrate in solution - magnesium pidolate) and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine hydrochloride).
Magnesium is a member of more than three hundred enzymes regulate different bodily functions, as well as in the cells of all tissues of the body, it is involved in most biochemical reactions in human cells (e.g., in regulation of nerve impulse transmission and muscle contraction). Magnesium inhibits the development of excitation in the central nervous system and reduces sensitivity to external stimuli, performing the function of the natural anti-stress factor.
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is also involved in many metabolic processes in the regulation of the nervous system. Vitamin B6 increases the absorption of magnesium from the gastrointestinal tract and its penetration into cells.
When taking the drug orally absorbed about half of magnesium. Displayed magnesium mainly in the urine (approximately one-third of the dose).
This is shown and Magne B6 intake is contraindicated
Admission Magne B6 shows magnesium deficiency (isolated or associated with other conditions), accompanied by symptoms such as irritability, minor sleep disturbances; gastrointestinal spasms, heart palpitations, fatigue, pain and muscle spasms of limbs, tingling sensations in the body.
With frequent use of laxatives, use of alcohol, with intense physical and mental stress increases the need for magnesium and increases the risk of magnesium deficiency in the body.
Contraindications Magne B6 are hypersensitivity to the drug, renal failure, phenylketonuria (a congenital metabolic disease), children up to 6 years (taking pills) and up to one year (for a solution), fructose intolerance, malabsorption of glucose or galactose deficiency of certain types of sucrose.
Precautions Magne B6 is used during pregnancy and lactation. Use of the drug during pregnancy is possible only on prescription (to date there was no evidence of toxic or causing defects in the development of magnesium B6 influences on the fetus). Since magnesium is excreted in breast milk, it is not recommended during breast-feeding the child.
Side effects Magne B6 and symptoms of overdose
Magne B6 is generally well tolerated, however, may occur and side effects:
- the part of the digestive system: abdominal pain
Abdominal pain: Types and Symptoms
, Nausea, vomiting, flatulence
Flatulence - when too much gas
, Constipation and diarrhea;
- From the nervous system: the feeling of "pins and needles" in the body;
- allergic reactions in the form of skin rashes (including hives), angioedema, and so on.
With normal kidney function Magne B6 intake does not cause toxic reactions. Magne B6 poisoning may develop in patients with renal insufficiency. Symptoms of poisoning by magnesium: lowering blood pressure, nausea, vomiting, bad mood, a distortion of the results of the electrocardiogram, respiratory depression, coma, cardiac arrest, absence of urination (anuria). In such cases, you must call an ambulance: you can only help the patient in the hospital.
Magne B6 - is not just a vitamin and mineral complex, this drug should be administered only by a physician.
Health food - careful not hurt
February 10, 2008
For the treatment of any disease one of the most important medical factors is the right nutrition
Proper nutrition - the basic precepts of healthy food
. This medicine is known since the days of Hippocrates. Surprisingly, it is almost health food does not cause differences between supporters of traditional medicine and naturopathy, are in eternal conflict because of different approaches to the disease and treatment.
The concept of natural dietary treatment
Naturopaths claim that the natural diet therapy has nothing to do with the usual medical treatment. The differences begin with the general approach to the disease: the traditional medicine treats only the body, and naturopathy regards man as an integrated system in which the body, mind and soul are inseparable, and hence any disease a person needs not only physical, but also spiritual healing.
Medicine knows two basic types of diseases - acute and chronic. In traditional medicine, acute disease, usually caused by an external factor - bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. The causes and mechanisms of chronic disease is usually not clear. With acute diseases medicine taken to deal with drugs. Treatment of chronic diseases is trying to change the physiology of the body, relieve pain and inflammation of the shooting, giving a person the opportunity to live with minimal manifestations of the disease.
Naturopathic medicine offers a holistic approach to healing, where therapeutic feeding is given perhaps the main role. In acute disease, diet therapy allows the body to bring itself back into balance. The body has a natural tool to combat disease, and man's task - to help the body to start healing mechanisms through the cleansing of the body. When cleaning is finished, and the disease will take.
During the illness of the body mobilizes its resources to clear. Fever and pain - evidence of a very active body, aimed at the elimination of toxins. The goal of treatment of acute illness - give the body a chance to heal naturally. Therefore, treatment includes rest, drinking plenty of fluids and light food, not to overload the body and do not hinder the process of purification.
In the treatment of chronic diseases of nutrition given to another role. Chronic disease is almost always the result of poor lifestyle, unfavorable heredity, chronic intoxication due to poor nutrition, or stay in an environmentally polluted areas. Not the least role in the occurrence of the disease plays emotional and mental attitude - Stress
How to beat stress? Create an oasis
, Experience. All this contributes to the accumulation of toxins with which the immune system tries to fight, creating a hotbed of chronic inflammation. As a result, regeneration of tissues and organs. There is pain, irritation, swelling and other symptoms of disease progression.
The task of the body affected by a chronic disease - remain, not allowing the disease to inflict considerable damage. Therefore, the body tries to limit the accumulation of toxins in certain organs and systems to continue to perform its function. The task of the patient - as much as possible to help the body get rid of waste and toxins accumulated over the years in order to restore as far as possible, the normal functioning of affected organs and systems. The process of treatment of chronic diseases is always time-consuming, it requires major changes in lifestyle, but the only way to turn the situation around.
The healing process includes cleansing and detoxification of the body, which must first health food that can cleanse the body. In addition to diet therapy is acceptable use of food additives and medicinal herbs. A medical assistance is necessary only where the organism has enough reserves to deal with the problem itself.
The concept of therapeutic feeding, MI Pevsner
In domestic medicine, the role of nutritional therapy for a long time underestimated. But in 1920, a prominent Soviet therapist MI Pevsner began large-scale study on the effects of diet therapy on the body as a whole. In fact, he was the founder of the national nutrition, develop and implement a health food as part of the treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, gipertornii, arteriosclerosis, rheumatism, tuberculosis, the genitourinary system, metabolic diseases in all hospitals and health resorts of the country. In addition, Pevzner developed the concept of anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic therapeutic feeding. Fifteen dietary tables - diets proposed by Pevsner, and still used in hospitals and are a benchmark for dieticians in the development of individual diets.
Basic principles of clinical nutrition in modern medicine
Fundamental Principles of clinical nutrition at Pevzner have stood the test of time. They are still relevant, but are subject to adjustment as new scientific knowledge in the field of medicine. Coryphaeus domestic nutrition MM Gurvitch presented them in the form of a simple and clear rules. So, what should be considered to nutritional therapy benefited?
- First rule: health food should not only treat, but also prevent the exacerbation of diseases, it must be directed to influence the metabolism
Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
. For example, in hypertension to lower blood pressure should limit their salt intake. With obesity should be a low-calorie diet, restricted intake of easily digestible carbohydrates (sweets and sugar) - the only way to achieve weight loss. In atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease in order to reduce blood cholesterol from the diet excludes animal fats. However, there are diseases in which, on the contrary, in the clinical nutrition is necessary to add certain products. Foods rich in iron, iron deficiency anemia patients is needed. People suffering hypovitaminosis require products containing vitamins they need.
- The second rule: in clinical nutrition is necessary to adhere to the regime, eating regularly and at the same time. So there is a conditioned reflex, in which secretion of gastric juice actively occurs in the same time creating the best conditions for the digestion and absorption of food. Failure to follow the diet, a habit of snacking throughout the day on the run and just be like, and in the evening to absorb copious dinner - a direct way to gastritis, cholecystitis and obesity.
- The third rule: the diet should be varied. The menu should be present medical products such as vegetable or animal origin, so that the body receives all the necessary substances for life.
- The fourth rule: health food should treat the patient, not the disease, so when his appointment requires an individual approach
. That's why diets numbering system proposed by Pevsner, modern experts use only as a tentative scheme dietary treatment
. An experienced physician adjusts the diet in the form and stage of disease, the patient's body weight, especially the metabolism, the presence of concomitant diseases
. Importance is also given to the habits and tastes of the patient: they will certainly take into account in the preparation of a medical diet, of course, if they do not cause injury
. The categorical ban on the use of any product may cause mental discomfort that adversely affect treatment
. When an individual approach to clinical nutrition into account the possibility of manifestation of the patient allergies or intolerance of certain foods
. Even very healthy food are excluded from the diet, if the patient does not tolerate them
- The fifth rule: medical diet need to be based on caloric content and chemical composition of its constituent products and dishes
. To products used for therapeutic feeding has a beneficial effect, it is necessary to know the mechanism of their effects on the body
. For example, the vegetable oil is a source of polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E, preventing the progression of atherosclerosis
. Vegetable oils also have choleretic effect, so essential to prevent cholecystitis
. However, when heat treated all the variety of useful properties of vegetable oils weaken or disappear, so they are recommended for use as a salad dressing and main dishes
. Of particular importance chemical composition and caloric content of food have in the treatment of obesity and diabetes
. For these patients properly selected diet plays an important role as a therapeutic agent
. Competently composed diet eliminates the need for medications patients with mild forms of diabetes
- The sixth rule: foods should be subject only to the most appropriate cooking. Thus, the exclusion from the diet of patients suffering from diseases of the stomach, rich broth and fried foods markedly improves their well-being. However, the dangers of fried food in recent years has been said and written quite a lot: during frying destroys most vitamins and form carcinogens. Therefore cooking and roasting have become the preferred methods of cooking food not only for patients, but also for healthy people.
- The seventh rule: in the preparation of therapeutic menu needs attention comorbidity. It's no secret that people after forty years often have multiple chronic illnesses. When assigning diets to reduce weight gain in patients suffering from arterial hypertension, it is necessary not only reducing calories, but excluded from the diet products that increase blood cholesterol and reduce the salt intake.
Thus, in some cases, health food can act as the main and only medical factor, and in others - to create a common background, favoring medical treatment and increases the effects of other factors.
The combination of clinical nutrition with phytotherapy
Phytotherapy and menopause - without the side effects
, Massage therapy, physical therapy and more effectively contribute to a speedy recovery.
This is in general the modern concept of health food, proposed by Russian nutritionists. It is practically no serious conflicts with the views which profess supporters naturopathy. So, health food - a universal key to the health of long-proven.
