Magnesium Citrate 200
Vitamins While this
macro-mineral is easily obtained from many foods, magnesium deficiencies are
extremely common for many Americans. Alcohol consumption, the presence of
fluoride, and the consumption of certain foods either increase our need for
magnesium, or decrease its absorption. Magnesium is not only one of the key
nutrients required in both calcium utilization and protein synthesis, but it
also plays a tremendous role in virtually every enzymatic reaction in our body.
LifeSource Vitamins Magnesium Citrate tabs are fast acting, safe and ideal for
anyone who has their sights set on attaining optimal levels of this vital
PRE-MENSTRUAL SYNDROME - Researchers have found that the
combination of magnesium and vitamin B6 has significant effects on reducing
anxiety-related premenstrual symptoms (nervous tension, mood swings,
irritability, or anxiety). One of the ways in which vitamin B6 may relieve the
symptoms of PMS is by increasing cellular magnesium levels.
KIDNEY STONES - Magnesium citrate has been shown to
increase the solubility of calcium oxalate and inhibit both calcium phosphate
and oxalate stone formation. Many patients with recurrent oxalate stones show
laboratory signs of vitamin B6 deficiency. Vitamin B6 is known to reduce the
production and urinary excretion of oxalates.
DEPRESSION - Vitamin B6 nutritional status has a
significant and selective modulatory impact on central production of both
serotonin and GABA, neurotransmitters that control depression, pain perception,
and anxiety. Vitamin B6 levels are often found to be low in women taking birth
control pills or Premarin. It is likely that many millions of people taking
Prozac may be suffering depression as a result of low B6 status.
FATIGUE - An underlying magnesium deficiency,
even if 'sub clinical', can result in chronic fatigue and symptoms similar to
chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Many chronic fatigue syndrome patients have
been shown to have low red blood cell magnesium levels.
MIGRAINE / TENSION
HEADACHES - Several
researchers link low magnesium levels with both migraine and tension headaches
based on their theories and clinical observations. Reduced levels of magnesium
are found in the serum, saliva and red blood cells of migraine sufferers, which
indicates a need for supplementation because one of magnesium's key functions
is maintenance of blood vessel tone.
Magnesium is an essential mineral required for energy and protein production, muscular contraction, and proper functioning of enzymes. It is also an important component found in the bone and is necessary for bone formation. In a placebo controlled study with postmenopausal women, 290mg of magnesium citrate daily led to a 43.7% increase in osteocalcin in the blood (a marker of bone formation). Read more on all the benefits magnesium has to offer.
As magnesium is required for muscle contraction, it is no surprise in the amount of evidence showing the benefits of magnesium in heart health. In a prospective study with15 years of follow-up in individuals at risk for coronary artery disease, researchers found that serum magnesium levels greater than 1.8 mEq/L had a 25% decreased risk of stroke. These results were replicated in another study showing that every 100 mg intake of magnesium per day produced an 8% reduction in stroke risk. Further research has also demonstrated intakes more than 345mg/d compared to intakes less than 261mg/d is associated with a lower risk of cardiac death (34% vs. 77%). Other research showed that taking 370 mg/d of magnesium dropped systolic blood pressure 3-4mmHg and diastolic pressure by 2-3mmHg. Even more, one extra serving per day of magnesium-rich foods such as whole grains, vegetables, and nuts will help lower the risk of death from cardiovascular disease by 28%.
Magnesium is also necessary for nerve conduction and thus supports brain health. In a placebo controlled trial, test rats with Alzheimer’s given magnesium performed similar to normal healthy mice in a series of cognitive tests. In children with ADHD, supplementation with magnesium (60mg/kg/d) reduced hyperactivity and improved attention in school. Furthermore, 500mg/d of magnesium has been shown to decrease Insomnia severity by 14.5% and improve sleep by 8.9%.
Research on dairy suggests that magnesium found in dairy may contribute to a lower risk of diabetes. Further research also shows the recommended daily allowance of magnesium (400mg/d) is associated with 71% lower insulin resistance.
Gastro Intestinal (G.I.) Health
In a prospective study on men, magnesium intakes above 327mg/d contributed to a 35% reduced risk of colorectal cancer. Other positive results on gastrointestinal health show that every 50 mg/d increase in magnesium intake produced a 5% decreased risk of colorectal cancer. Further benefits have also been observed in a study highlighting a 33% reduced risk of gallstones with intakes meeting recommended daily allowance (400mg/d).
Magnesium can also improve lung function. In a placebo controlled study on individuals living with asthma, magnesium supplementation led to a 21% increased control of asthma and overall 8% improvement in the quality of life. In patients with cystic fibrosis, 300mg of magnesium contributed a 5.6% improvement in severity of cystic fibrosis.
