Why our Magnesium is so good
Your Magnesium is the 'Mineral Superhero' providing a myriad of benefits. A deficiency in Magnesium is common and can lead to a number of health issues including muscle cramps, poor sleep and anxiety. Discover signs you may be low in Magnesium in 'How do I know if I'm deficient in Magnesium?'.
How to take it?
It is most commonly taken in the evenings to support better sleep, or after exercise or long days on your feet.
Each capsule contains 200mg of elemental Magnesium - standard Magnesium supplements contain much lower levels of elemental Magnesium.
Our Magnesium is highly absorbable and effective, and free of any additives or animal ingredients, so many customers find they only need one capsule a day to support their needs.
How it works?
Standard Magnesium supplements will contain additives and animal ingredients which can cause side effects and of course, reduce their absorption and effectiveness.

The difference between the different forms of Magnesium is how they are sourced and how well they are absorbed into the body. Clinical studies show the citrate form in our Magnesium is the most easily and efficiently absorbed by your body for most people.
Benefits of Magnesium
Muscle fatigue, recovery and relief
Magnesium is vital for normal muscle function and helps your muscles to relax. Low Magnesium levels can result in your muscles contracting too much, causing twitches or cramps, and fatigue. It is ideal for conditions such as restless legs and leg cramps, and commonly taken by elite athletes after training to support recovery of their muscles.
Psychological wellbeing and your sleep cycle
Our 'Mineral Superhero' helps regulate neurotransmitters that send signals throughout your nervous system and brain, helping regulate your psychological wellbeing. Magnesium also helps regulate the hormone 'melatonin' that helps control your sleep cycle, which is why it is commonly taken before bedtime to support the quality of sleep.
Through its role in helping to increase bone mineral density, studies show Magnesium may be beneficial in preventing or managing osteoporosis, a condition that weakens bones. Osteoporosis develops over several years and the first signs of it can be when a minor fall causes a bone fracture.
Maintaining a regular heartbeat
Magnesium plays a key role in nerve impulses and muscle contractions, and crucially it helps maintain a normal heartbeat. Low Magnesium levels in your body could cause an irregular heartbeat rhythm such as heart palpitations.
