19 Dec FEATURED PRODUCT: Natural Calm's Ionic Magnesium
Only Natural Calm has a proprietary formula of highly absorbable magnesium in ionic form so it starts working right away
- Ionic means that the molecules have gained or lost an electron and seek to attach to something to balance out the electron count. Research has shown that ionic minerals are more easily absorbed by the body.
- Absorption – Magnesium citrate powder is better absorbed than any form of magnesium tablet. That’s because mineral tablets have very low bioavailability.
- Magnesium supplements in liquid form are the most absorbable, because “the amount of magnesium your tissues can use is based on how soluble the magnesium product is and the amount of elemental or ionic magnesium that is released”
- Research shows that several types of liquid magnesium have similar absorbability. While there are no clinical trials comparing the leading forms of powdered magnesium, expert opinion holds that magnesium citrate has a 10% higher bioavailability compared to glycinate, at 90% vs 80%
“The difference between citrate and glycinate absorption in favor of magnesium citrate is due
to the fact that many individuals lack sufficient hydrochloric acid (HCI) to absorb magnesium
efficiently and magnesium citrate does not require HCl”
- Magnesium citrate can be used as a natural, gentle laxative, if desired. As when taking any form of magnesium, “loose stools… (are) a mechanism to release excess magnesium… when you reach saturation and take more than you require”8 To avoid the laxative effect, add 1 – 2 tsp of Natural Calm to a large bottle of water and sip slowly throughout the day.
