Natural Factors Magnesium Citrate 150 mg. - 360 Capsules

Natural Factors Magnesium Citrate is an easy-to-swallow capsule. The citrate form is extremely well absorbed and well-tolerated by the body and is necessary for hundreds of enzyme reactions in the body and for normal heart function. Natural Factors Magnesium Citrate is necessary for protein synthesis, carbohydrate metabolism proper muscle function and helps to absorb calcium and potassium. Magnesium is vital to hundreds of enzyme reactions and has more health benefits attributed to it than any other mineral including calcium. Magnesium, along with calcium, is better absorbed in citrate form. Studies show that mineral citrates have superior absorption especially when taken on an empty stomach. Magnesium is an important electrolyte which helps the absorption of calcium, phosphorus, sodium and potassium. Magnesium is required for the B vitamins to work properly and is absolutely necessary for the utilization of thiamine. Magnesium is necessary for growth and development, wound healing, immune system function, temperature regulation and many activities of the brain and nervous system.

The Health Benefits of Magnesium:
  • Balances the absorption and utilization of calcium
  • Supports the formation and maintenance of a healthy bone matrix
  • Helps reduce the risk of calcium deposits, such as kidney stones, in soft tissues
  • Regulates nerve cell conduction
  • Supports energy production inside cells
  • Improves exercise endurance
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Supports normal and healthy blood pressure
  • Relaxes the muscles, and calms the nerves
  • Supports a healthy heart

Missing Magnesium
The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in the United States found 68% of adults were consuming less than the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of magnesium (King). Inadequate magnesium intake gradually creates magnesium deficiency in the body. Other factors, such as stress and excessive calcium intake, can further deplete magnesium, pushing the body toward problematic magnesium deficiency. Many people consume excess calcium due to their concerns about osteoporosis. But calcium can interfere with the absorption of magnesium. Paradoxically, excessive calcium consumption can increase the risk of osteoporosis, since healthy bones require a balance of calcium and magnesium, and an imbalance can contribute to bone loss.

A blood serum test cannot detect a magnesium deficiency because it is not correlated with total body magnesium. Almost all of the magnesium in the body is in the bones or inside the cells. The cells can be deficient even when the serum level is normal. The best test is a red blood cell magnesium test which measures the level of magnesium inside those cells.

Research shows that taking magnesium citrate can quickly restore healthy levels of magnesium, relieve anxiety and other symptoms associated with low magnesium status, and promote a healthy cardiovascular system.
