Citrate of magnesium.
Citrate of magnesium is a valuable health supplement which unfortunately is not well recognised.
This is now becoming of considerable importance due to the lack of this important mineral in our current food sources.
Medical research informs us that magnesium deficiency can contribute to a whole list of health problems and these facts should be better known.
Several different supplements can be used as a help for people who are deficient in this essential mineral and that unfortunately includes most of us.
These magnesium supplements can also be an effective solution to overcoming those stressful situations which we all seem to run into periodically.
Magnesium is a potent relaxation mineral, IN FACT YOU COULD REFER TO MAGNESIUM AS THE RELAXATION MINERAL.
Magnesium can also help you sleep more soundly.
This mineral is responsible for over 300 enzyme functions; it affects bone, muscle and even our brain.
Magnesium together with recent stem cell discoveries will I am sure, together have a big effect on our future health care and our welfare.
THERE IS NO COMMITMENT WHATSOEVER.
However, I can then get back to you personally and I hope answer any questions you may have.
If you are of mature age like me,(I am 90)and interested in anti aging,
It amazes me how little publicity this receives. This deficiency is easily handled at minimal cost by using things like citrate of magnesium.
Magnesium deficiency has even been linked to inflammation of the body. Things like Rheumatoid arthritis, Polymyalgia, joint pain, the list of inflammation problems goes on and on.
Why are we so deficient?
I recently spoke to a Laboratory Technician whose company specialise in soil testing from over a very large area of country and she informed me that there is no Magnesium in any of the soils they have tested.
Apparently it is not added to agricultural fertilisers because plants themselves don't appear to need it, BUT WE DO!
Therefore unfortunately, you can be assured there is little or no Magnesium in the fruit and vegetables we eat. Our highly processed diet also contains almost no magnesium.
The following was reported in Wikipedia."Observations of reduced dietary magnesium intake in modern Western countries as compared to earlier generations, may be related to food refining and MODERN FERTILISERS CONTAIN NO MAGNESIUM" (The capitals are mine)
This problem can be quite easily fixed with things like citrate of magnesium or magnesium orotate and at little expense.
Here is another scientific review of magnesium, "It is highly regrettable that the deficiency of such an inexpensive low-toxicity nutrient results in diseases that cause incalculable suffering and expense throughout the world." (Med Hypotheses 2001 Feb; 56(2): 163-70)
Our magnesium levels are also heavily reduced by such popular things as common salt, alcohol and the PHOSPHORIC ACID WHICH IS FOUND IN ALL SORTS OF SOFT DRINKS LIKE COKES. Is it any wonder we suffer from the shortage of this critical mineral!
There unfortunately is a problem associated with trying to have the body absorb or use magnesium. Unless you can acquire it from a natural source you can literally take magnesium by the bucket load without supporting supplements like vitamin D.
However the amount we do absorb can have a pronounced effect on our health in many ways.
Use Citrate of magnesium, magnesium taurate or orotate and support it with vitamin B6, vitamin D and selenium. These extra supplements will support your body's ability to utilise any available Magnesium.
The recommended daily intake of Magnesium is 300 mg per day but I personally believe most people will benefit from much more, up to 1000 mg per day.
I recently read a report by a highly qualified health professional who recommended even higher supplement levels.
If you take too much the worst effect seems to be loose bowels.
