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.

    Thought I was buying a higher dose as more bang for my buck - turns out it's only 300mg elemental magnesium. Wish I'd known this before purchasing. Won't buy again.

  • Excellent product

    star

    After moving to a city with fluoridated/chlorinated water my health went downhill, with "asthma", digestive issues and hypothyroid (the latter backed up by blood tests). Conventional medicine as usual, had no clue and I was put on inhalers. Symptoms included a really tight chest and inability to relax properly, constant bad moods. I researched for months and even tried mag supplements a couple of times to no avail. Had a breakthrough with this product - chest tension disappeared and am now rebuilding my Mg stores slowly. this product also contains Vit D and selenium - altho you may wish to also supplment with more selenium, also Calcium & potassium with the Mag. Research Mag deficiency - its ver common and you may be surprised to find that you have it. Mag is notoriously non bio-available depending on type and co-supplementation. This product may have saved my life.

  • MagSorb is the very best products of it's kind.

    star

    Both my husband and I have heart issues and have suffered from leg cramps, we tried several magnesium tablets, which didn't help the cramps at all. Only 2 years ago did we find this product and use it every evening after our shower. Applying it on the tops of our feet. It works instantly as I'm sure you will find.
    My husband has some heart issues while overseas and one of the things they found was very low magnesium levels, so on returning home he started using MagSorb regularly and several times during the past 2 years, he has had a blood test to see how his levels are now, they are still showing normal levels.
