Magnesium is a mineral found in abundance in the human body. It is also found naturally in many foods, like green leafy vegetables. The average American magnesium intake is critically low. More than 57% of the population does not meet the United States Department of Agriculture dietary requirements for magnesium.
Magnesium levels decrease in the body by excessive intake of alcohol, salt, coffee, and sodas. Diets high in calcium and high stress levels contribute to lower levels of magnesium too. Daily intake of magnesium is critical for:
- proper hydration
- stress response
- muscle relaxation
- promoting health blood pressure levels
- optimal bone mineral density
- blood sugar regulation
Reacted magnesium is gentle on your system. It is gentler because it provides three unique forms of highly-absorbed magnesium. Most magnesium supplements use one source of magnesium which can limit uptake. Single source magnesium can cause side effects like gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation or a combination of these symptoms.
Reacted Magnesium provides magnesium as di-magnesium malate, magnesium citrate and magnesium glycinate. These three forms of magnesium enhance absorption which improves utilization and gastrointestinal comfort. Information is provided by Orthomolecular Products.
