Why is a steady magnesium supply so important?

Magnesium is an essential mineral the body.1 In fact, magnesium is the second most abundant positively charged ion in the human body.2 The human body stores about 50-60 percent of its magnesium in the skeleton, 25-30 percent in the muscles, 20-25 percent in other organs, and less than 1 percent outside of the cells.3 The kidneys play the major role of maintaining magnesium homeostasis in the body, filtering about 2,400 milligrams of magnesium a day and reabsorbing about 95-99 percent. The remaining 1-5 percent (or about 100 milligrams) is excreted in the urine. When magnesium is consumed at approximately the recommended amount (370 milligrams per day), the intestines will absorb about 30-50 percent (or approximately 100 milligrams), similar to the amount excreted in the urine.4 However, if dietary intake is low, up to 80 percent may be absorbed.5 If the body does not get the magnesium it needs from the diet, the magnesium will be retrieved from the approximately 25 grams stored in bones, muscles, and organs.6*

How do the ingredients in Magnesium Lactate provide overall support to the body?

Magnesium is a cofactor in hundreds of enzymatic reactions in the body7 and is essential for the support of normal cell growth and replication. Magnesium is required to help DNA, cell membranes, and bones maintain structural integrity.8*

Magnesium is an essential player in a host of cellular activities, such as energy production, cell signaling, ion transport, nucleic acid and protein synthesis, and structural functions throughout the human body.9*

Magnesium is a key player in the healthy functioning of skeletal and heart muscles and the brain.10 Due to its ability to support the heart muscle, magnesium plays an important role in maintaining heart health.*

Why should someone consuming a whole food diet consider a dietary supplement like Magnesium Lactate?

The 2015 scientific report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee indicates that the following are considered “shortfall nutrients” in the U.S. population: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, folate, calcium, magnesium, fiber, and potassium. In addition, vitamin D, calcium, fiber, and potassium are also classified as nutrients of public health concern because research suggests that not eating enough can result in “adverse health outcomes.”11
