  • Magnesium citrate is a well-absorbed form of magnesium‚ perfectly suitable for those who are in need of magnesium supplementation. Magnesium plays a role in many bodily functions including bone formation‚ kidney function‚ regulating blood pressure and protein formation.

    Magnesium can be found in every single cell in the human body‚ so it should not be surprising to find that it is involved in more than 300 enzymatic processes‚ with energy production being among the most important. To maintain optimal bone density‚ one must maintain appropriate magnesium levels. Other functions that rely on magnesium are methyl-group transfer‚ nerve conduction‚ muscle contraction and conversion of pyridoxine to the active form of vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5’-phosphate).

    Magnesium Deficiency

    Magnesium deficiency has become a common occurrence in America because the standard American diet is deficient in this mineral. If you think you might be deficient in magnesium‚ talk to your doctor about testing before you decide to supplement. Common symptoms of a magnesium deficiency are trouble sleeping‚ anxiety‚ constipation‚ muscle spasms‚ backaches‚ headaches‚ or difficulty swallowing. If left unchecked‚ a magnesium deficiency can lead to bone matter loss.

    For those who are deficient‚ supplementing with magnesium can benefit energy production‚ metabolism of carbohydrates‚ and heart function. Thorne research has combined magnesium with the citrate chelate for optimal absorption.

    Many factors can contribute to a magnesium deficiency‚ including a poor diet which includes processed foods or a stressful lifestyle. If you are deficient‚ in addition to supplementation‚ you may benefit from eating a diet rich in leafy green vegetables‚ eating more fermented (probiotic-containing) foods‚ and avoiding processed foods.

    Magnesium and Citric Acid

    One study compared the bioavailability of magnesium citrate with magnesium oxide (a form found in some other magnesium supplements) and found that the magnesium citrate provided significantly better absorption than the magnesium oxide. In another study‚ the same researchers monitored solubility and found the citrate version to be 55% water soluble. In contrast‚ magnesium oxide is virtually insoluble. As one might imagine‚ if a mineral cannot be absorbed in water‚ it will be very difficult for it to be absorbed in the body.

    Both magnesium and citric acid have shown that they can decrease urine levels of calcium phosphate and calcium oxalate‚ which helps supports good kidney health. In fact‚ about 10 percent of the American male population is likely to have calcium oxalate and phosphate particles in their urine. Thorne Research’s magnesium citrate would be beneficial for each of these individuals due to its combination of magnesium and citrate.

    loose powder in the bottle

    I have ordered this product twice and both times it is as if one of the capsules came apart. both times I could not find an empty capsules which makes me thing the capsules used are of poor quality and leak powder. that does not give me a good feeling that I am taking a good dose each time. I don't think I will be ordering this product again in the future.


    Pros

      dr. ordered it

    Cons

      worry about quality

    Good supplement!

    Magnesium Citrate by Thorne Research is one of the minerals we need but rarely have enough - helps with the process of breaking down foods and is especially helpful with belly fat. Many supplements are hard on your stomach. This one isn't. Appears to be a pharmaceutical quality supplement.

    Easier on body, smaller dose

    I have tried Magnesium Citrate by different brands. But Thorne Research Magnesium Citrate seems to be easier on my body than other brands. Also the each dose is 135mg. Most other brands have 150mg in each capsule. In my opinion it's better to take smaller dose each time but more frequency throughout a day.


    Pros

      Easier on my body. Smaller dose in each capsule.

    Cons

      Nothing that I don't like about product.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Long time user of this product

    I began using Magnesium Citrate by Thorne Research years ago at the advice of my NP. It does all I want it to do. When traveling I increase my daily intake to the level that aides in preventing constipation. A couple of times I have used other good brands, but have always returned to Thorne. Now I can't imagine ever using anything else. The price is good, but just increased 60 cents. The previous price had been in place for a long time so I can't complain and trust that this new price will hold for a while too.
