What do flares, laxatives, World War II planes, fertilizer and good health all have in common? That’s right: a touch of magnesium.
A remarkable mineral, one of the most common in the universe, magnesium is not only useful in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications, but also vital to maintaining your health. Since the early 1800s, magnesium hydroxide suspended in water, marketed as “milk of magnesia”, has been sold as a laxative and antacid, but only now are we understanding the full significance of this valuable nutrient.
What’s special about Magnesium-Pro™?
Formulated from a proprietary blend of high quality ionic magnesium and 72 other trace elements and minerals, Magnesium-Pro™ ionic magnesium is one of the simplest and best ways to ensure you’re getting your daily magnesium intake.
While most magnesium supplements include magnesium oxide due to its high content per weight, it is also the least valuable in terms of bioavailability. Magnesium-Pro™ is formulated in a water-based ionic solution, meaning it is absorbed easily by the body and boosts your levels quickly.
Magnesium-Pro™ is free from GMO ingredients, allergens and gluten and is also vegan friendly, so you can feel confident about what you’re taking. Its metered dropper makes regulating dosage hassle-free.
What is magnesium?
Magnesium is an essential mineral, crucial to a wide range of functions within the body. The eleventh most abundant element by mass in humans, it is required for basic cell function and the action of hundreds of enzymes.
The best dietary sources for magnesium are:
While it may seem like many common foods contain good amounts of magnesium, researchers have noticed a significant drop in intake over the past few decades, particularly in Western countries.
This is likely resultant of changes in how we fertilize and process our foods, particularly vegetables, as well as decreasing nutrient levels in soil due to poor farming practice. The problem is compounded by general changes in diet; the supermarket glut of heavily processed, nutrient deficient meal options means that fewer whole foods are being consumed — arguably the best way getting essential minerals.
Sadly this means many Americans and others around the world are not getting sufficient magnesium for their needs, but may not even know it. In fact, USDA claims only 43% of Americans are receiving their recommended daily intake.
Why do I need magnesium in my diet?
Magnesium is required for a wide range of bodily functions and processes and is present in every cell in your body and those of all other living organisms. It is crucial to the metabolic system as well as the synthesis of DNA and RNA (the building blocks of our genetic code).
Magnesium is also a major component in the normal structural development of bones, antioxidant production, muscle contraction, nerve impulse conduction and regulating heart rhythm.
What happens if I don’t get enough magnesium
Magnesium deficiency, while initially relatively benign due to the kidney’s role at regulating excretion, if left unresolved, can lead to serious health implications.
Early symptoms of magnesium deficiency include:
More serious deficiencies can lead to:
While deficiencies of this severity are rare, they are not unheard of, and substantial numbers of people do not receive their daily magnesium requirement.
If you’re concerned you’re not getting the right amount of dietary magnesium, Magnesium-Pro™ is the ideal remedy. Why wait until you’re already unwell to stock up on this vital nutrient? You could be living a healthier, more nutritious life right now.
