Description

It is suspected that magnesium is one of the most common micronutrients to be lacking in the typical Western diet. In fact, the USDA estimates that as few as 1 out of every 3 adults in the U.S. meets the recommended daily intake (RDI) of magnesium, which is 420 mg.2 Magnesium deficiency can significantly increase the risk of muscular weakness and impaired contractile force, low bone density, dehydration, and neurodegenerative complications.3 As such, consuming Magnesium Citrate can help support healthy magnesium levels in the body, which is imperative for longevity and well-being.τ Magnesium Citrate also provides calcium citrate which helps your body absorb and utilize magnesium.τ

Magnesium Citrate includes a highly bioavailable citrate salt form of magnesium. Many magnesium supplements provide magnesium oxide, a form of magnesium which is poorly absorbed by the body (rendering it essentially useless).4 Research suggests that magnesium citrate supplementation can help restore a healthy magnesium status in adults and thus support magnesium-dependent functions all throughout the body.τ Magnesium is the eleventh most abundant element (by weight) in the human body, with over 80% of total body magnesium being found in bone and muscle tissue. By acting as a cofactor for some 300+ enzymatic reactions in the body, magnesium helps activate other proteins in the body. Magnesium also interacts with phosphate in many cellular reactions, and is essential for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and ATP.5 The calcium citrate in Magnesium Citrate is crucial for helping the body properly absorb and make use of magnesium, as well as supporting healthy bone mineralization.
