Health Canada says nearly half of all Canadians are deficient in magnesium, which can lead to symptoms such as restless legs, muscle cramps, migraines, fatigue, anxiety and insomnia, to name a few.
Magnesium isn’t a drug we take only when the situation warrants. It’s more like a type of fuel or building block our body uses, just as our body uses sugars, proteins and fats.
The composition of what we eat and the quality of our foods has drastically changed over the past hundred years, and this has made it difficult to get enough magnesium.
Without enough magnesium, your body will have huge disruptions. Not enough cellular energy. Not enough proteins synthesized. All kinds of metabolic reactions interrupted.
The magnesium we take is never pure magnesium. Magnesium ions (Mg2+) are highly reactive and unstable on their own. How we absorb salts and complexes are slightly different.
When designing our line of magnesium supplements, we knew that simply providing more magnesium wasn’t enough. We wanted to create a magnesium that works for everyone.
