What is HealthAid® Magnesium Citrate Powder?
Due to the severe soil depletion, poor dietary habits, use of popular stimulants, and chronic stress millions suffer from magnesium deficiency without even knowing it. It is estimated that 80% of us are deficient in this most vital mineral. In addition, magnesium deficiency is often misdiagnosed because it does not show up in blood tests as only 1% of the body’s magnesium is stored in the blood.
Magnesium Citrate is regarded as one of the most absorbable forms of magnesium and is most often recommended for those who want to address magnesium deficiency. It utilizes magnesium bound to citric acid, which facilitates intestinal absorption of magnesium. It is very important to know that not all forms of supplemental magnesium are the same as many of them contain only cheap and poorly absorbed types of magnesium.
HealthAid® Magnesium Citrate Powder is completely free from any additives and contains only pure magnesium citrate powder in its best anhydrous form. 200g of HealthAid® Magnesium Citrate Powder is highly efficient as it contains an average of 80 recommended daily doses (80 level 2.5g scoops) of highly absorbable magnesium (375mg of elemental magnesium per dose). The word “elemental” refers to actually absorbed by the body amount of magnesium.
HealthAid® pure Magnesium Citrate Powder, apart from being free from additives, can be mixed with food, water or any liquid, which makes it easy to supplement for children, individuals for whom magnesium tablets are too large to swallow, and those who wish to mix magnesium powder with water and sip small amount throughout the day for better result. Sipping magnesium citrate powder in water throughout the day is the best way to increase absorption of magnesium.
Experts claim that because magnesium citrate (especially powder) dissolves well, it is more effectively taken up in the intestines. After we swallow a magnesium supplement, it is broken down by the stomach acid. But as the magnesium ions move through the small intestine, the acidity drops and as a result some forms of magnesium become less soluble. Magnesium citrate, however, has proven to remain soluble even when acidity drops and it is available for uptake throughout the intestines. It is believed that it is the high solubility of magnesium citrate is the reason why it directly increases magnesium blood plasma levels.
Magnesium citrate is osmotic laxative, which means that unlike some other forms of magnesium, it relaxes bowels and pulls water into intestines. The water helps soften and bulk up the stool, which makes it easier to pass. Magnesium citrate is mildly laxative, which can be very beneficial for those who need to improve peristalsis (motility) of the colon or are constipated. At the same time it shouldn’t cause urgency or emergency bathroom trips, unless taken in excessive amounts.
Magnesium is also required for the production of serotonin, which apart from being a happy and antidepressant hormone, also regulates peristalsis of the colon, thus preventing constipation.
Magnesium Citrate gives all other known benefits of magnesium. It contributes to normal muscle, brain and nervous system function, maintenance of healthy bones & teeth, blood sugar levels, reduction of tiredness & fatigue, normal energy yielding metabolism, electrolyte balance, and protein synthesis. Magnesium is important to support immune system and cardiovascular health.
Due to its ability to relax muscles and blood vessels magnesium supplements can be highly beneficial for people who wish to maintain a healthy blood pressure, avoid muscle cramps including spastic colon, stomach cramps, migraine headaches, and women with excessive uterine contractions.
In human body Magnesium is necessary to activate all the enzymes that convert Vitamin D into its final form. In people who are deficient in Magnesium Vitamin D supplementation brings no benefits even if very high doses of Vitamin D are taken over a long period of time! For this reason a well-absorbed form of magnesium, such as citrate, should be recommended for all people who take supplemental Vitamin D.
