Magnesium Citrate Supplements - Elemental, Deficiency, Symptoms, Benefits

A review of assimilation studies
suggests that the citrate salt of magnesium is one the best-absorbed
into the bloodstream. The recommended intake of elemental magnesium
to maintain and support a healthy state is between 300 to 800 mg a day.
Eighty percent of Americans do not receive the RDA for
magnesium (the RDA for most nutrients is sub-standard according to scientific
literature) in their diet since our foods supply such small amounts of this
Mix (full menu) contains a modest amount of magnesium (400 mg) as does the
calcium/magnesium mineral formula,
An intake of magnesium supplements from 300 to
800 mg daily is particularly
helpful with many conditions. Magnesium is a natural laxative and is the
healthy and preferred source for dealing with constipation. Too much
magnesium can cause diarrhea so the dose should be kept
below your diarrhea level. That amount can be different for different
people, however, most people do well with an intake of 300 to 800 mg (elemental
- the actual amount you are consuming) daily.
Magnesium should be accompanied by
900 to 1,200 mg a day of elemental calcium in a tablet or capsule that completely dissolves.
Calcium has a constipating effect which tends to offset magnesium. Calcium
and magnesium supplements should not be taken at the exact same time as essential
fatty acids such as flax seed or fish oil since they tend to interfere with absorption.
Magnesium supports arterial health, normal blood pressure,
and heart rhythm. In addition, magnesium helps muscles relax --
including those surrounding arteries. Researchers have learned
that some of the same things that deplete our bodies supply of magnesium including stress, alcohol,
and pregnancy, can trigger various health conditions in susceptible people. They also discovered that magnesium aids a healthy body by:
- Keeping blood vessels open in the brain,
Preventing sudden spasms that clamp down on
- Keeping the blood thin and flowing,
Helping to maintain the stability of cell membranes,
Interfering with inflammatory-producing
- Attaching itself
to toxic metals and foreign matter (that may cause allergies) and
expelling them from the body.
