Mag Spectrum - Chelated Magnesium - 120 Capsules

Mag Spectrum - Chelated Magnesium - 120 Capsules

This helps reverse the tide of widespread and debilitating magnesium deficiency, an innovative formula of 100% fully reacted amino acid chelates has been created called MagSpectrum®.

MagSpectrum® provides not one but five different kinds of fully reacted amino acid chelates to provide a wide range of benefits of restoring vital magnesium to all the parts of the body.

Additional Information:
Magnesium is one of the most widespread and important mineral deficiencies. Approximately 74% of Americans consume less than the recommended daily intake of magnesium. Stress, exercise, and ingestion of caffeine, alcohol, and refined sugar increase magnesium excretion. Excessive calcium consumption further aggravates magnesium balance through competitive antagonism for absorption in the small intestine. Dietary fiber and phytates bind ionized magnesium and diminish its absorption. Diuretic and corticosteroid medications as well as laxatives can cause severe magnesium wasting through the kidneys and gastrointestinal tracts. Based on these factors it is estimated that 90-95% of Americans are magnesium deficient.

The use and supplementation of inexpensive inorganic magnesium salts is one of the main reasons why magnesium deficiency is so widespread. These salts include oxides, citrates, carbonates, gluconates, sulfates, acetates, and lactates. To be absorbed, these salts must first be ionized, which requires adequate stomach acid. The ionized mineral may then be bound to dietary fiber, phosphates, phytates, and tannins and be rendered unabsorbable. Not only are dietary polyphenols bound, their antioxidant activity is depleted. Medications can also bind to the ionized mineral, resulting in both becoming unavailable. The remaining ionized magnesium then completes for absorption with calcium, zinc, iron, and several other minerals. These antagonistic effects are so great that studies have shown that grains supplemented with magnesium salts actually caused a net depletion of magnesium from the body.

The key to effective supplementation is the form in which the magnesium is given.The body has a powerful natural transport mechanism for minerals in which amino acids wrap around the mineral to package it both for absorption and delivery to tissues. This process is known as amino acid chelation, as the amino acids surround the mineral like the pincers of a claw, the term "chela" being the Greek word for claw. The chelation process neutralizes the charge of the magnesium so that it no longer binds to dietary components or medications, preventing the formation of insoluble complexes that reduce absorption. The neutralization of charge also prevents the antagonistic competition for absorption of other minerals. Absorption and tissue delivery of the amino acid chelates is greatly enhanced through active transport mechanisms in the small intestine that actively bind to the amino acids to ferry them across the intestinal lining, into the blood stream, and into the cells.

Several B vitamins plus vitamin C are included to give the vitamin cofactors required for optimum metabolism at the same time as the concentrated nutritional elements. These serve to promote efficient use of carbohydrate, protein, and fat as well as provide antioxidant and collagen-renewing actions to improve the internal environment of arteries and the external environment of the skin.

Magnesium is of therapeutic value in treating a myriad of symptoms and health conditions:
• Anxiety and panic attacks
• Hypoglycemia
• Asthma
• Insomnia
• Blood clots
• Kidney disease
• Bowel disease
• Migraine
• Cystitis
• Musculoskeletal conditions
• Depression
• Nerve problems
• OB/GYN problems
• Toxicity
• Diabetes
• Osteoporosis
• Fatigue
• Raynaud's syndrome
• Heart disease
• Tooth decay
• Hypertension

Suggested Usage: To receive the recommended daily allowance of 400 milligrams of magnesium, it is advised to take four capsules of MagSpectrum® daily, preferably divided into two capsules twice daily.

For children up to eight years old, one capsule per day is advised. For children aged nine through thirteen, two to three capsules per day may be taken, preferably divided into one to two capsules in the morning and one capsule in the evening.

Additionally, the fastest method to track the progress of remineralizing the body, and the only highly reliable one for magnesium, is intracellular mineral testing. This is done from a swab of the lining of the mouth.
