Advanced Magnesium Uptake System
According to the The U.S. Department of Agriculture Dietary Survey, at least 75% of Americans are magnesium deficient.
Triple Mag delivers magnesium in fully soluble alkaline salts, ready to buffer the body against the damaging effects of acidity. Only Triple Mag has the benefit of a combination of three transport cofactors. These cofactors first deliver magnesium to the cells, and then add an energy boost when activating the energy systems of the body. Many formulations use Magnesium Oxide which is a cheap, poorly absorbed magnesium that can cause digestive disturbances.
What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is one of the most powerful minerals in our bodies, responsible for over 300 different enzyme reactions in your body. Yes, that could be 300 different problems if you are deficient. Without adequate magnesium you cannot make the “happy hormone”, serotonin, you may suffer from chronic fatigue from faulty energy production, brittle bones and numerous other health problems.
One of the major jobs of magnesium is to neutralize acids in the body. Chronic stress and the acid-producing effects of caffeine, alcohol, processed foods, soft drinks, and sugar deplete magnesium stores in the body. The typical Western diet is high in acidic foods and low in magnesium rich foods. This is a major cause of health problems. You can assess your body's pH by checking your first morning urine with pH strips.
Conditions That May Benefit from Magnesium:
- Bone health*
- Chronic fatigue*
- Heart attacks/ Heart disease*
- High blood pressure*
- High LDL*
- Kidney stones*
- Mental health*
- Muscle building*
- Muscle cramps*
- Weak immune function*
Symptoms of Magnesium deficiency:
- Kidney stones
- Liver disease
- Malabsorption problems
- Muscle tremors or twitching
- Psychiatric problems
- Psychological symptoms: apathy, apprehension, confusion, and poor memory
- Blood Sugar Imbalance
Magnesium and Cardiovascular Disease
When magnesium is supplemented regularly, irregular heart rhythms become more stable, high blood pressure improves, the body keeps a better balance of potassium and other important cardiovascular minerals, the heart pumps a larger volume of blood with no extra demand for oxygen, constricted blood vessels relax, allowing blood to flow more freely, and HDL cholesterol rises and LDL cholesterol falls.
In one study, researchers compared the magnesium and calcium concentrations in the hearts of individuals who died of heart disease to those who died of other causes. Researchers found significantly lower levels of magnesium in patients who died of heart disease compared to the control group. The study concluded that, “Magnesium deficit in the arterial wall probably plays a certain role in this disease.”2
Another study evaluated the effects of magnesium supplementation on patients in the early stages of heart disease. At the end of the study, researchers concluded, "The administration of intravenous magnesium to patients in the immediate post-infarction period is cardioprotective and decreases the incidence of arrhythmia, pump dysfunction, and death."3
Magnesium and Blood Sugar Disorders
Excess consumption of sugar increases the risk of a magnesium deficiency, which in turn further impairs sugar metabolism. How well the body metabolizes sugar is tightly linked to magnesium, making the mineral essential to anyone with diabetes or insulin resistance.
Magnesium and Fibromyalgia
Research has shown significant deficiency of Mg in fibromyalgia patients and the clinical use of magnesium with these patients has shown positive response.*
Magnesium and Asthma
Magnesium can diminish wheezing and encourages bronchial muscles to relax, which can improve breathing for bronchitis, emphysema, and other chronic lung disorders.*
Magnesium and Osteoporosis
For preventing and perhaps reversing osteoporosis, magnesium might be more important than calcium. It balances the body's calcium supply and keeps it from being depleted. If you have health problems, use this proven and advanced mineral formulation designed to penetrate your gut wall and get into your body where it is needed.*
