Why you'll love it

Magnesium citrate is a critical mineral involved in over 320 enzymatic reactions, including normal insulin receptor function, bone mineralization, blood pressure, heart rhythm, and muscle and nerve function. Adequate amounts of magnesium can counteract the damaging effects of stress and alleviate headache, asthmatic wheezing, and constipation. Assimilation studies suggest that the citrate salt of magnesium is the best type absorbed into the bloodstream. Magnesium citrate has more health benefits attributed to it than any other mineral, including calcium. Magnesium citrate, along with calcium, acts as a buffer, helping to prevent the body from experiencing excessive stress.

Magnesium citrate is an important electrolyte that helps the absorption and movement of calcium, phosphorus, sodium, and potassium in and out of the cells, which help generate nerve impulses with the help of ʟ-⁠taurine. This maintains the correct composition of bile and, in maintaining the solubility of cholesterol, helps proper digestion of fat-soluble vitamins to make them more bioavailable. It has been found to have an effect on blood sugar levels similar to insulin.

Magnesium citrate is a form of magnesium that is well absorbed by the body and is commonly used as a laxative to relieve occasional constipation. It works by increasing water in the intestines, which helps to soften stools and make them easier to pass. This makes magnesium citrate a good option for people who struggle with occasional constipation.

On the other hand, magnesium bisglycinate is a form of magnesium that is bonded to the amino acid glycine. This form of magnesium is well absorbed and is less likely to cause digestive upset compared to magnesium citrate. Magnesium bisglycinate is often preferred by people who are looking to supplement their magnesium intake for overall health and wellness, as it is better absorbed and less likely to cause digestive issues. However, it may not be as effective as magnesium citrate for relieving occasional constipation.

Why this formula?

Malic acid is often added to magnesium citrate supplements for several reasons. One of the primary reasons is to improve the bioavailability of magnesium. Malic acid helps to increase the solubility of magnesium, making it more easily absorbed by the body. This improved bioavailability can result in higher levels of magnesium in the bloodstream, providing greater benefits to the body.

Additionally, malic acid has its own benefits when added to magnesium citrate supplements. It is a natural alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that is found in many fruits and vegetables. Malic acid has been shown to have beneficial effects on energy production and can help to improve athletic performance, reduce muscle pain and fatigue, and support healthy skin. By adding malic acid to magnesium citrate supplements, users can receive the combined benefits of both magnesium and malic acid, making it a convenient and effective supplement for overall health and wellness.

how much plate

How much do I really need?

Generally 1 capsules once or twice a day is sufficient, though dosing may change depending on the certain condition you are looking to treat. In many cases, doses above 2 capsules per day may be better tolerated with the bisglycinate form of magnesium instead.
