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.

    Have just started taking Thompsons Organic Magnesium. So far the results are good. Sleeping much better and the restless legs have gone.

  • The best

    star

    I've tried a bunch of different magnesium supplements, each other either giving some sort of side effect and one day a woman at a pharmacy pointed out these and said they were great. I bought them and haven't tried anything else since. These are really good quality, easily absorbed and gentle on the stomach. A+

    Very happy with this magnesium and have certainly noticed a difference with less frequent leg cramps and better sleeps. Have recommended to my husband too.
