Magnesium is a mineral used by every organ in the body, especially the heart, muscles, and kidneys. According to a 2012 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), approximately 30% of males and 35% of females ages 19 to 30 are deficient in magnesium. Magnesium insufficiency has been implicated in a wide range of health challenges. Most magnesium supplements use only a single source of magnesium, which can easily overwhelm a single pathway of absorption. Reacted Magnesium takes advantage of unique pathways of absorption by providing magnesium as di-magnesium malate, magnesium bisglycinate, magnesium citrate and magnesium glycinate for enhanced absorption, improved utilization and gastrointestinal comfort. Some individuals taking other forms of magnesium supplements experience GI side effects, including gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation or a combination of these symptoms. The forms of magnesium used in Reacted Magnesium preserve GI comfort while maximizing absorption and restoring magnesium levels in the body.
Adults: Take 2 capsules 1 time per day.
Bioavailability: The Mineral Chelate Difference
Signs of inferior mineral supplements include the use of cheap, poorly absorbed, rock-salt minerals like calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide. These mineral forms slow and limit absorption, relying on adequate stomach acid to release magnesium ions which then enter the body via passive diffusion. And, because they tend to remain in the intestines longer, these forms of mineral supplements can cause intestinal distress such as constipation (calcium carbonate) or diarrhea (magnesium oxide).
Magnesium is involved in bone formation and influences the activity of osteoblasts and osteoclasts, cells responsible for the breakdown and formation of bone.
