Magnesium Info

As one of the macro minerals required in large quantities by our bodies, magnesium is quickly used up during periods of stress. Two thirds of our body’s magnesium is stored in our bones and one third in skeletal and cardiac muscle. There are many demands on our magnesium supply which is involved in over 300 essential biochemical reactions. Among these, magnesium has vital roles in cell membrane function, DNA and RNA replication, protein synthesis and stabilising nerve function.

For good bone health and prevention of osteoporosis the earlier you lay down adequate magnesium in the skeletal system the better, so optimum magnesium intake during pregnancy is important. Most people living a modern 21st century lifestyle with all its attendant stressors have some degree of magnesium insufficiency. Because we use magnesium up quickly, we need to continually replenish our reserves and often we are temporarily in deficit.

Magnesium Benefits

Maintaining adequate magnesium levels helps prevent cardiovascular disease, kidney stones, gallstones and some forms of arthritis by improving calcium removal from soft tissue, thereby reducing plaquing and stone formation.

Asthma, migraine onset, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, depression, anorexia, allergies and chemical sensitivities, ADD, hearing loss, some eye disorders, temperomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), SIDS, premature ejaculation and scar formation are all conditions linked to magnesium deficiency by various research studies.

Any form of prolonged stress and conditions such as heavy menstruation, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, pancreatitis, hyperthyroidism and kidney disease are all indications for magnesium supplementation.

Magnesium Side Effects

If you have seriously impaired kidney function, magnesium supplements may lead to dangerously high plasma concentrations of magnesium, and may therefore be contraindicated. Consult your health professional.

Product Reviews

  • Magnesium cream

    I bought this wondering if it would be as good as the oil and it is much better. I have only got through half a pot so far but already I love how it deals with my aches and pains and now I feel there is hope for the strained ligament across my pelvic area which has bothered me for years. I got it to use on my back joints which cause a lot of pain and I really feel the difference already but I am going to need a bigger pot soon. I don't want to run out of this great product which also feels soft on the skin. My husband uses it on his arthritic thumb and knee and says it is better than anything else so far even specific creams for arthritis pain. This is a really worthwhile product and am so glad I found it.

  • Exellent product

    I have tried melatonin and 5HTP in the past with very little success, but have found the Go Sleep Support to work really well. I have found taking 1 tablet half an hour before bed to be effective, but would try 2 tablets if I was really struggling with sleep. I totally recommend them!
