Lorna Vanderhaeghe Magnesium Bisglycinate Helps With...

Magnesium

Magnesium is an abundant mineral in the body that is necessary for many organs and tissues to function properly. Its deficiency has been implicated in cardiovascular disease, behavioural problems, diabetes, chronic fatigue, migraine headaches, muscular complaints, osteoporosis, and premenstrual syndrome. Studies indicate that a significant number of North Americans fail to meet the recommended daily intake of magnesium.

Cardiovascular Disease

Epidemiologic studies (statistical studies on human populations which attempt to link health effects to a specified cause) have linked low levels of magnesium and the increased frequency of heart disease and cardiovascular deaths. High blood pressure specifically is associated with low magnesium levels.

Behavioural Problems

Magnesium deficiency occurs more frequently in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) than in healthy children. Studies have shown that magnesium supplementation reduces the symptoms of ADHD in children.

In one such study, a combination of magnesium and vitamin B6 was shown to reduce symptoms such as physical aggressiveness, instability, and poor attention at school in all study participants (52 children) after 1-6 months of treatment.

Magnesium, together with vitamin B6, may also be beneficial for autistic patients. While no cure for autism is known, magnesium and B6 supplementation has led to remarkable improvement in many cases.

Diabetes/Metabolic Syndrome

Magnesium pays a major role in the secretion and effects of insulin. Supplementation with magnesium has been noted to improve insulin response and action, as well as glucose tolerance. Studies in patients with blood sugar problems have shown magnesium to be extremely beneficial.

Chronic Fatigue

Results obtained in clinical trials already during the 1960's showed that between 75 and 91% of almost 3,000 patients with fatigue experienced improvement with magnesium (concurrently with potassium) supplementation. The beneficial effects were often noted after 4-5 days of treatment. Similar results have also been reported in a more recent study.

Headaches/Migraine

In order to evaluate the preventative effects of supplemental magnesium, 81 patients with migraine (average attack frequency 3.6 per month) were given magnesium or placebo for 12 weeks. In weeks 9-12 of the study the attack frequency was reduced by 41.6% in the magnesium group compared to 15.8% in the placebo group.

Headaches due to muscle tension are also associated with magnesium deficiency.

Muscular Complaints

Because magnesium is needed to allow muscles to relax, a deficiency increases the likelihood of excessive muscle tension and may lead to muscle spasms (cramps), tics, restless leg syndrome, night muscle spasms and twitches.

Osteoporosis

Research indicates that magnesium may be just as important in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis as calcium. Magnesium affects mineral metabolism in bone by a combination of effects on hormones and other factors that regulate these processes. A deficiency of this mineral has an inhibitory effect on osteoblasts (cells that build bone) and may result in increased osteoclast (cells that break down existing bone) activity.

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

Several studies point to the effectiveness of magnesium supplementation in the management of PMS (weight gain, swelling of the extremities, breast tenderness, and abdominal bloating) and PMS-related mood changes.

Which Magnesium Supplements to Choose

Magnesium supplements are available in numerous salt forms as well as amino acid chelates. The absorption rate and tolerability may vary greatly between the different supplemental forms. Many are poorly tolerated at therapeutic doses due to the mineral's laxative effect.

Magnesium in its inorganic state (simple salt) is absorbed only to the extent of about 5-10%. Inorganic minerals must be altered from their natural state before they can penetrate the intestinal barrier. The most efficient way to achieve this goal is by combining them with amino acids.

Lorna Vanderhaeghe Magnesium Bisglycinate contains magnesium bisglycinate allowing for faster and more efficient absorption.

  • 10/10  MagSmart

    By Julia on Thursday, June 18, 2015 12:56 AM

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:10/10


    (+) Convenient,Easy To Take

    How did you use it?:Everyday

    "I have been on every magnesium supplement under the sun and required IV infusions for years to maintain my levels and control my symptoms of deficiency. I have long standing absorption issues and was so relieved to find MagSmart and finally find relief from nagging symptoms and time-consuming infusions (not to mention costly to the medical system). I have recommended this to everyone who will listen as magnesium deficiency is so much more common than is really understood - even in those who do not present with obvious symptoms or low blood values. I've been taking MagSmart for almost 3 years and have not required infusions in that whole time. Brilliant product!"

  • 9.9/10  Magnesium Bisglycinate

    By Brenda on Sunday, June 15, 2014 05:09 PM

    Effectiveness: 10/10
    Value:9/10


    (+) Boosts Energy,Helps alleviate Parkinson's symptoms

    How did you use it?:Everyday

    "My husband had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease last year. It has affected his balance, his quality of sleep along with stiffness,etc that goes along with the disease.

    The first time he took the magnesium, about 30 minutes later, he was walking better & said he felt his balance was a lot better. According to research, the optimal dose for Parkinson's is 1200 mg a day of chelated magnesium, split up throughout the day.

    It will never cure him, but it has definitely helped with his day to day living.

    I also take magnesium, but in a much lower dose (200 mg) & it helps with my restless leg syndrome & helps me get a better sleep. I was waking up around 2 a.m. & falling asleep again around 5 a.m. Now I sleep through the night without waking up!"
