Magnesium is a key chemical element in the body that is essential for energy production, heart health, muscle and nerve function, bone health, and much more.* In fact, it plays an important part in more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body.* However, magnesium is unique in that, although it plays such an important role in the body, it cannot be created by the body and must be included in the diet. More than 70% of Americans are deficient in magnesium due to soil depletion, grain refinement, non-organic food sources and other environmental factors.* It is therefore important for adults to consider incorporating magnesium into their diets through supplementation.
The key benefits of magnesium:
- Supports heart health*
- Support muscle and nerve function*
- Supports energy production*
- Supports structural development of bones*
- Promotes balanced calcium levels *
When looking for the best magnesium for your health, you will quickly realize that there are many options available. Magnesium comes in a variety of forms including magnesium acids (such as Magnesium Citrate), chelated magnesium (such as Magnesium Glycinate), and mineral salt forms (such as Magnesium Chloride).
Nature’s Lab offers two popular magnesium options: Nature’s Lab Magnesium Glycinate and Nature’s Lab Magnesium Soothe. These two vitamins have been specifically developed to provide optimal health benefits in two unique ways.* Nature’s Lab Magnesium Glycinate, which is a chelated and buffered form of magnesium that is highly absorbable and gentle on the stomach, comes in easy-to-swallow capsules. It is one of the most common forms of magnesium because it does not have a laxative effect since the glycine is actively transported through the intestinal wall.*
Nature’s Lab Magnesium Soothe combines magnesium citrate, magnesium carbonate, and L-Theanine in a delicious raspberry-lemon dietary supplement mix that makes into a refreshing drink. Simply add this powder to water for a refreshing drink that provides 350 mg of magnesium and soothing L-theanine. This form promotes balanced calcium levels, and with the addition of L-theanine for added stress response support, it may also produce a relaxing effect without negative drowsiness.* This is an excellent option if you are tired of all the pills you swallow every day and want a fun way to take an essential daily supplement.
Since magnesium deficiency is so common, finding a way to supplement your diet with it is important. Taking Nature’s Lab Magnesium Soothe or Nature’s Lab Magnesium Glycinate can be an easy way to increase your magnesium levels. However, since each form of magnesium offers something a little different, please ask your health care provider first which form is best for you.
