Magnesium is a mineral essential to many systems in the body and it is readily available through food sources. Many sources would consider a true magnesium deficiency to be rare in the developed world. In spite of this, Americans are riddled with conditions associated with low levels of magnesium. These include diabetes and metabolic syndrome, chronic inflammation, hypertension and cardiovascular illness, migraines, and osteoporosis, among others.
Right around half of the population is consuming the recommended amounts of magnesium. Around one-quarter of the population takes a magnesium supplement. Yet with such a high occurrence of these magnesium-deficient related issues, the question becomes one of quality over quantity.
Magnesium might be found in plenty of food sources and countless formulations of supplements, but it has to be absorbed by the digestive tract – occasionally the skin – in order to be used by the body. Not all magnesium is absorbed by the body, which is why we have chosen a liquid form of magnesium citrate. This type of magnesium supplement is more readily absorbed by the body, ensuring that what you take is what the body needs and can use.

|Our Pro Magnesium formula utilizes magnesium-citrate, noted as an especially bioavailable form of magnesium.||If a supplement form of magnesium is less accessible, the beneficial effects may not be as pronounced.|
|Our formula is sweetened naturally with stevia and contains no artificial additives.||Other liquid supplements may be artificially sweetened.|
|The liquid formula enables a higher dosage in a simpler, more efficient dose.||Capsule forms of magnesium may require many pills to reach the same dosage, and the capsules may not be as bioavailable as a liquid.|
|One of the most bioavailable forms of supplemental magnesium, ensuring optimal access to its benefits.|
|Plants produce glycerin as a clear, thick fluid that is often used as a medium for supplements.|
|A natural thickener and gelling agent, xanthan gum is used in both culinary and medicinal preparations.|
|Both natural preservatives, citric acid is found in citrus fruits and potassium sorbate is a salt derivative of potassium.|
|Stevia is an herb known for its extreme sweetness, often utilized by drawing the sweetening properties out with an extract.|
Homeostasis is the process – a governing rule, so to speak – by which the body maintains levels of normalcy throughout its systems. If a highly prioritized function is lacking, the body will take from less immediately concerning areas in order to regain balance and homeostasis. Nutrient levels fall under this governing rule, and when a system needs a nutrient that is not presently circulating, it will pull that nutrient from the body’s stores.
Minerals have been understood as a vital element long before even vitamins were discovered as nutrients. When a mineral partners with enzymes or other substances and functions, it is called a “cofactor,” and magnesium is a cofactor for a variety of processes. When magnesium is expected but not available, stores gathered in bones and soft tissue are depleted, leaving the body weakened and wanting.
Without sufficient amounts of magnesium available for use, partnering processes are not carried out and the skeletal storage system is compromised. Supplementing with magnesium can help the body to maintain homeostasis without drawing the body into a deficit.
- Low levels of magnesium are connected with heightened levels of anxiety. Within the realm of alternative and complementary medicine, magnesium and magnesium-containing supplements are often used, and the studies that have been done on magnesium as a remedy show promising results.
- While incidences of depression are not necessarily marked by low levels of magnesium, supplementation of magnesium has been employed for depression for over a century. The mechanisms of action are still unclear, but the evidence of benefit exists.
- There is some evidence that magnesium can lessen the inflammatory response and lower related pain levels. Individuals with fibromyalgia, an illness of chronic pain and inflammation, may find relief using magnesium supplements.
- Bone health can be improved by maintaining homeostasis of magnesium levels. Depletion of mineral stores in the bones can risk osteoporosis and other bone density issues.
- Magnesium can be an ally throughout a woman’s premenstrual and menstrual cycles. PMS symptoms have been relieved using a combination of magnesium and B6 supplementation, and migraines associated with the menstrual cycle may be prevented with magnesium.
- Migraine headaches can be debilitating and life-altering, and extremely difficult to treat. Among the remedies and preventative protocol is magnesium supplementation, often utilized within a complementary alternative approach to treating this enigmatic ailment.
- As a component of enzyme function, magnesium levels may be associated with prevention of type 2 diabetes.
- Magnesium can play a complementary role in efforts to lower blood pressure. When combined with lifestyle changes, magnesium can have a significant effect on blood pressure. Additionally, antihypertensive drugs may become more potent when combined with magnesium.
