Magnesium is an abundant mineral in the body and is found naturally in many foods, like green leafy vegetables. It is also found in over-the-counter medications, such as laxatives. According to the 2012 survey, more than 34% of Canadians over age 19 consumed magnesium in quantities below the Estimated Average Requirement (EAR), with the prevalence of inadequate intakes rising to greater than 40% in half the adult age and sex groups.1 Intracellular magnesium levels are decreased by excessive intake of alcohol, salt, coffee, phosphoric acid found in sodas, diets high in calcium and high stress levels.3 Because of widespread nature of magnesium deficiencies, adequate daily intake of magnesium is critical for proper hydration, maintenance of proper muscle function, optimal bone mineral density.
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.
