SANDERSON Magnesium FX 1000
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and
is essential to good health. Around 50% of total body magnesium is
present in bone; the other half is found mostly inside cells of body
tissues and organs. Just 1% of magnesium is found in blood, but the body
works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium stable.
Over 300 biochemical reactions in the body require magnesium. It helps
maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady,
supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also
helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and
is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
It is well known that some forms of minerals or other substances can be
absorbed better by the body than others. The most commonly used form of
magnesium in supplements is inorganic magnesium oxide (MgO), because it
is cheap and because it has a high (up to 60%) elemental magnesium
content. However, the availability of the magnesium in MgO has been
assessed at only around 4-5%.
So a tablet boasting 500mg MgO may only provide around 15mg magnesium.
Compare this is with the availability of Magnesium Aspartate at around
42%, Magnesium Citrate at 25%, Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate at 25% or
Magnesium Orotate at 20% for example. Organic forms of magnesium are
generally better tolerated and better absorbed by the body.
Magnesium FX 1000 is a high absorption complex of organic magnesium
salts and does not contain inorganic magnesium oxide or phosphate.
Magnesium FX 1000 has been formulated to include magnesium citrate,
magnesium aspartate, magnesium orotate and magnesium amino acid chelate.
Research has shown these organic forms are much better absorbed and are better utilised. This
formulation also contains vitamin B6, vitamin D and selenium as
cofactors involved in the optimal absorption and utilisation of
Magnesium FX 1000 may be useful to support healthy heart function;
muscle relaxation; sleep and relaxation; nervous system balance; PMT
associated with cramps and changes in mood; anxiety, mood &
irritability. Supplementation with magnesium may also provide support to
sufferers of migraine headaches.
