Magnesium Supplements

Magnesium, a mineral, is involved in hundreds of biochemical functions in our body, particularly related to the nervous system and stress, detoxification, and sleep. We must get magnesium through our diet as our body doesn’t make it.

Magnesium Info

Magnesium is a key factor in over 350 enzymes. Magnesium assists in energy production, as well as supporting a calm nervous system. Over half of the magnesium in our body is found in bone tissue. Mostly magnesium functions inside our cells, and is involved in our metabolism helping to produce protein. Magnesium is also involved in the creation of our hard tooth enamel and supports a healthy heart.

Should I take Magnesium?

Magnesium is contained within many foods, but if the diet is high in refined sugar and processed grains you can miss out on an adequate intake. Stress, caffeine, alcohol, and diuretics can also deplete the body's magnesium levels, therefore magnesium supplements may be beneficial. 

 

Types of Magnesium

Magnesium supplements are available in tablet, capsule and liquid form. Liquid forms of magnesium include BioBalance Liposomal Magnesium which is known for its superior absorption. Magnesium creams & oils can be topically applied and massaged into the skin to absorb transdermally.

Magnesium Side Effects

Magnesium supplements are generally safe and have no adverse effects when taken within the recommended doses. Some forms of magnesium in higher amounts may cause nausea, stomach upset and diarrhoea.

  • Works well, but expensive

    star

    I've been taking magnesium capsules for a while for painful night-time leg cramps I get as a result of peripheral neuropathy (numb legs) from rheumatoid arthritis. The capsules work ok but I need four of the rather large capsules every day.

    I decided to try Liposomal Magnesium since that's supposed to be absorbed better, but when I take the recommended 10ml per day there is little effect. When I take one 20ml dose each evening before bed it works as well as the capsules. At 20ml a day I get no cramps at all, and if I don't take the magnesium I'm guaranteed to get painful cramps every time, so it most certainly works. I also sleep a little better.

    The taste and texture is a little strange but it's not a problem, and the bottle needs a really good shake every time. Somewhat more expensive than capsules, but way more convenient. I use two bottles a month, so it's nearly $100 monthly, compared to under $20 a month for the capsules.

    Some details about my dosage:
    To get the required effect I've found I needed the normal required daily intake (RDA) of Magnesium on top of whatever I get through my diet. The RDA for Magnesium is 4.5mg/kg for men. I'm 90kg so I need about 400mg per day. The bottle says to take 10ml daily but that only gives me 200mg of magnesium, and I've found this to be ineffective. When I take 20ml of the liquid per day, which is the RDA, it works well.
