WHAT IS MAGNESIUM?
Magnesium is arguably the most important mineral in the body, since it is critical in over 300 chemical functions… including protein synthesis, bone development/repair, muscle and nerve functioning, energy production, and more.
Unfortunately, the majority of people are now magnesium deficient… which can lead to symptoms such as:
Muscle Cramps or Twitching — Numbness/Tingling — Restless Legs Syndrome — Insomnia & Sleep Disorders — Muscle Pain & Fibromyalgia — Anxiety — Type II Diabetes — Fatigue & CFS — Migraines — Osteoporosis
WHY ARE PEOPLE DEFICIENT?
Magnesium levels are now lower in natural produce… and the vast majority of people consume poor quality foods anyway. Processed and sugary foods provide almost zero magnesium… High calcium intake can inhibit the body’s ability to absorb magnesium… Frequent consumption of alcohol also blocks your magnesium intake, and can actually leech it from your body.
POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF MAGNESIUM CITRATE:
All magnesium supplements provide elemental magnesium, which is required for hundreds of reactions in the body…but each type of supplement has its own additional benefits and strengths…
Studies have suggested benefits from Magnesium Citrate such as:
Helping with bone health: Mg Citrate regulates calcium transportation across cell membranes, especially for bones ... and your bones are also where 2/3 of your total magnesium is stored.
Mg Citrate is linked to heart health, as it helps regulate the conduction of electrical signals... and can reduce arterial stiffness.
Can help with digestion: the Citrate form loosens stools and provides relief from constipation (if you suffer from IBS-D, you may want to avoid).
May protect against kidney stones - Mg balances Calcium, and Mg Citrate is extremely good at controlling the balance... and may help prevent the Calcium buildup that creates kidney stones.
CITRATE VS OTHER FORMS:
There are many forms of Magnesium supplement, such as Oxide (very poor), Bisglycinate (excellent for sleep), Taurate (reducing stress, and cardiovascular health), Malate (energy and pain relief), Ascorbate (gentle Vitamin C), and Threonate (memory and brain boosting) ... and these different types have advantages and disadvantages. The most common (and cheapest) form is Magnesium Oxide - which has very high levels of magnesium, but only about a 4% availability for the body - and worse, has a strong laxative effect for most people!
Citrate is Magnesium bound to Citric Acid (which is predominantly found in citrus fruits).
Citrate contains 14% elemental magnesium, and is highly bio-available.
Interestingly, most supplements in tablet form contain Magnesium Stearate… However, many people are sensitive to it, and can even be fully allergic to it. Some research suggests it can suppress the immune system as well!
If you are new to Mg Citrate, please start with only 1 capsule, as it can have a laxative effect - especially in higher doses. If you are taking more than 1 per day, spread the dose throughout the day!
The capsules we use are made from Pullulan, which is synthesised from tapioca - it is completely inert in the human body, and non-allergenic. Pullulan is superior to the more common HPMC vegetarian capsules, or gelatine ones, and is highly resistant to oxygen (keeping the product inside fresher).Unlike tablets, capsules don’t require multiple binding agents, flow agents, coatings, and preservatives - so you get fewer ingredients.
