Magnesium, in its ionic form, offers superior absorption which helps it promote fast relief from many common complaints such as low energy, poor sleep, muscle twitches and cramping, depression, and so much more! With Mother Earth Labs‘ Ionic Magnesium, it’s never been easier to naturally replenish this essential, often deficient mineral — without the common digestive discomfort of magnesium supplements.
- A biologically active form of the most deficient mineral in the body.
- Added Fulvic Acid offers enhanced absorption for faster results and less digestive discomfort.
- No more choking on large capsules or tablets with questionable fillers.
Ionic Magnesium +
Magnesium is the mineral we are all told to reach for when we have trouble sleeping, relaxing, or are suffering from headaches, migraines, cramps, and the like. What we’re often not told is that magnesium is actually used in over 300 chemical and enzymatic reactions within the body, and long-term studies actually suggest that over 70% of people are deficient in magnesium due to poor diet, high stress, certain medications, and other health challenges.
Why Ours Is Different
During our research into magnesium supplement safety, we felt called to create a better magnesium supplement. One that was in liquid form to avoid the hazards of large tablets that are difficult to swallow, often don’t digest well, and are filled with potentially harmful fillers and additives. We also realized that the digestive discomfort that comes with magensium supplementation is caused by unabsorbed magnesium as it stays in the digestive tract. So, we added natural fulvic acid to help improve the absorption rate. Now, not only are these discomforts a thing of the past, but you’ll also feel the beneficial effects of magnesium much faster!
What does “Ionic” mean?
Ionized means “to convert wholly or partly into ions” usually in water. An ion exists in water with a positive or negative charge and are readily bioavailable. Ionic Magnesium exists as a positively charged ion making it easily absorbed and used by the body. Because many other supplemental forms of magnesium are not ionic, they are not well absorbed or utilized in the body and simply pass through the GI tract.
In soil, inorganic minerals (rocks and similar matter) become ionic minerals when they naturally associate with fulvic molecules. Fulvic carries these minerals through roots where plants can use them. When we consume plants or fulvic, we also receive these ionic minerals – the form our bodies prefer. Unfortunately, due to modern farming methods, our crop soils are quickly being depleted of both fulvic acid and minerals, therefore our plants are also depleted of nutrients. And so are we. That’s why supplementing is so important.
Why Is Magnesium So Important
As previously mentioned, magnesium is used in over 300 biological chemical reactions and when our levels of this mineral are low, we can certainly tell!
Magnesium promotes the enzyme activity involved in energy production. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is an essential coenzyme involved in energy and metabolism, but ATP must bind with magnesium to be biologically active.
Our nervous system is responsible for nearly everything the body does, from automatic functions like respiration and circulation to sensory based actions like moving and smelling. It is also involved in thought and emotional processes.
Our nervous system sends electrical impulses (messages) from muscles to the brain and from the brain to muscles, but this system depends on magnesium to send these messages correctly. When we are deficient in magnesium, we may experience muscle twitches, heart palpitations, nervousness and irritability.
According to several recent studies, magnesium is inversely related to coronary artery calcification and, thereby, atherosclerosis. One of these studies in particular actually showed a 36% increase in the risk of dying from coronary heart disease and a 54% increase in sudden cardiac death in patients with low serum magnesium levels compared to those with mid to high levels.
Magnesium is also associated with soft tissue relaxation; this includes the heart and arteries. When our calcium levels are high and out of balance with magnesium, the overabundance of calcium can cause our muscles (and heart!) to contract. On the reverse side, having a proper balance (more magnesium than calcium) allows the heart to relax and adequately expand. In fact, it also allows our arteries to relax and expand which helps counter high blood pressure.
Bones and Teeth
Nearly 60% of our magnesium is stored in our bones and repeated studies have found that deficiencies contribute directly to osteoporosis by acting on bone cells and crystal formation.
Magnesium is also used in the production of hard enamel. Calcium alone can only encourage the production of soft enamel which is much more likely to decay than hard enamel.
The benefits of adequate magnesium are seemingly endless and we believe it is one of the most important minerals we can supplement with. Further scientific research will undoubtedly continue to uncover even more links between magnesium and overall health.
