Reports have shown that at least 70% of Americans are magnesium-deficient. Commenting on one of these reports‚ Richard Rivlin‚ MD of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center‚ said there was “a high general awareness of the importance of nutrients such as vitamin C and calcium‚ but it is clear that consumers are largely unaware of the role of magnesium…”
Many factors can increase the rate of magnesium depletion in the body. Physiological factors‚ such as mental or physical stress‚ an underactive
thyroid‚ diabetes‚ and chronic pain can all contribute to depletion of magnesium. Dietary habits‚ such as higher consumption of sugar‚ coffee‚ soft drinks‚ use of several types of medical drugs‚ and diets high in carbohydrates‚ fiber‚ or calcium may also‚ in part‚ lead to magnesium deficiency.
Magnesium absorption is as important as magnesium intake. Most people believe that regular magnesium supplements‚ such as tablets or capsules‚ will resolve magnesium deficiency. Unfortunately‚ however‚ individuals can supplement with the RDI for magnesium every single day and still be in a deficient state. Studies show that many common magnesium forms are poorly absorbed. Magnesium citrate is one of the most absorbable forms. Magnesium is more bio-available in water than in the diet‚ with one preliminary human trial showing 30% greater absorption. Water-soluble magnesium is clearly the preferred dosage form.
Longevity Science Magna-Calm™ is a water-soluble form of magnesium citrate. Magna-Calm™ has a pleasant effervescence‚ and a good-tasting natural lemon flavor. One scoop provides 420 mg of elemental magnesium.
