Magnesium is not easily absorbed by the body.
Magnesium oxide is one of the most common form of magnesium sold but its absorption rate is poor. Quality of a magnesium supplement depends on the form of magnesium in the supplement and how readily it is absorbed and utilized by the body.
MarineMAGNESIUM is derived from the clean, mineral-rich seawater off the Irish Atlantic coast. A pure ocean-source magnesium, each capsule of MarineMAGNESIUM contains 135mg of magnesium and 74 pure plant-source minerals and trace minerals that work together to boost the absorption of magnesium in the body. MarineMAGNESIUM is far more soluble than most other magnesium supplements, ensuring better absorption by the body.
MarineMAGNESIUM are bottled using the patented LOCTEC™ Nutrient Protection Technology to ensure optimal freshness.
Do you need magnesium supplements?
If you hit the gym often or if you are an endurance athlete, you may benefit from consuming magnesium supplements. Magnesium is the second most prevalent electrolyte in the human body and is necessary for over 300 metabolic reactions in the body. It helps to maintain healthy nerve and muscle function, heart rhythm, blood pressure, sugar levels, as well as bone integrity. During exercise, your body may need 10 to 20% more magnesium than at rest. Magnesium helps move blood sugar into your muscles for production of energy and removes lactic acid which can build up in muscles during exercise. Magnesium is also lost through sweat, so athletes training hard in hot and humid environments might require more magnesium.
If you consume large amounts of caffeine, sugar, alcohol and processed food, you may be at risk of magnesium deficiency. Check with your doctor if you experience loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and weakness. As magnesium deficiency worsens, numbness, tingling, muscle contractions and cramps may also occur.
