Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body and supports more than 300 enzyme systems. It supports normal energy release, regulation of the body temperature, nerve function, adaptation to stress, metabolism and much more. One of the main mechanisms of magnesium in the body is its support of normal protein synthesis. Normal protein synthesis relies on optimal magnesium concentrations, as magnesium supports the normal delivery to the building blocks of life – our DNA – of signals that trigger the expression of amino acids. In other words, this process supports the body’s normal ability to "make" proteins. The recommended daily value for adults is 400 mg of magnesium. However, average daily intakes are much less. A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that most U.S. adults – especially those over the age of 30 – were receiving, on average, approximately 290 mg of magnesium daily. That study also showed that dietary intake is particularly low among women. Unfortunately, inadequate levels of magnesium have been linked to poorer concentration, memory and cognitive function and muscle discomfort. Sleep quality is associated with higher levels of magnesium and when these levels are low, sleep quality may suffer. Isotonix Magnesium provides the body with 100 percent of the recommended daily value of magnesium in a highly-bioavailable formula. Thanks to its unique formula, which includes two different types of magnesium to increase its absorption by the body, Isotonix Magnesium helps maintain normal blood pressure and supports bone health and sleep quality, while promoting head comfort and optimal muscle health.

Magnesium (Citrate & Glycinate) (400 mg)
Magnesium is a component of the mineralized part of bone and supports the normal metabolism of potassium and calcium in adults. It helps maintain normal levels of potassium, phosphorus, calcium, adrenaline and insulin. It also promotes the normal mobilization of calcium, transporting it inside the cell for further utilization. It plays a key role in supporting the normal functioning of muscle and nervous tissue. Magnesium promotes the normal synthesis of all proteins, nucleic acids, nucleotides, cyclic adenosine monophosphate, lipids and carbohydrates.
Magnesium works together with calcium to help maintain the normal regulation of the heart and blood pressure. Importantly, magnesium also supports the body’s ability to build healthy bones and teeth, and promotes proper muscle development. It works together with calcium and vitamin D to help keep bones strong. Magnesium also promotes cardiovascular health by supporting normal platelet activity and helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels.
Potassium (Bicarbonate) (150 mg)
Potassium is an electrolyte stored in the muscles. Foods rich in potassium include bananas, oranges, cantaloupe, avocado, raw spinach, cabbage and celery. Potassium is an essential macromineral that helps maintain fluid balance in the body. It also supports a wide variety of biochemical and physiological processes. Among other things, potassium supports the normal transmission of nerve impulses, contraction of cardiac, skeletal and smooth muscle, synthesis of nucleic acids, maintenance of intracellular tonicity and maintenance of normal blood pressure. In 1928, it was first suggested that high potassium intake could help maintain cardiovascular health. Potassium supports normal muscle relaxation and insulin release. It also promotes glycogen and protein synthesis. Potassium is an electrolyte that promotes normal heartbeat. Potassium supports the body’s ability to regulate water balance, recover from exercise and eliminate wastes.
What benefits does magnesium provide the body? With its involvement in supporting over 300 enzyme reactions, magnesium plays roles in many aspects of health.
With regards to bone health, it is an important component of the mineralized part of bone, and supports the normal metabolism of calcium and potassium in adults. Magnesium works together with calcium and vitamin D to help keep bones strong and support bone mineral density. Magnesium also supports muscle development and movement and the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles. Studies clearly demonstrate the effects of supplemental magnesium on muscular health. Adequate magnesium levels are also important for cardiovascular health. Studies show magnesium supports a regular heartbeat, thus promoting a healthy heart. Additionally, magnesium helps maintain normal blood pressure. Magnesium helps maintain normal blood pressure. Magnesium supports normal protein synthesis. As such, there is evidence that magnesium helps maintain normal blood sugar levels.
How much magnesium should I be getting, and why do I need a magnesium supplement versus getting it from my normal diet?
The recommended daily intake for adults, established by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, states that adult males between the ages of 19 and 30 should be receiving 400 mg of magnesium daily. Adult females of the same age should receive 310 mg daily. For older males, the recommendation is 420 mg daily, while older females should consume 320 mg daily. Daily lifestyle factors and poor dietary choices adversely affect the amount of magnesium we are ingesting. Foods rich in magnesium include whole grains, nuts and green vegetables, which are potent sources of magnesium because of their chlorophyll content. Meats, starches, dairy products and refined and processed foods – which make up a large portion of the typical diet in today’s society – contain low amounts of magnesium. High-fat diets not only provide lesser amounts of magnesium, but studies have shown that such a diet might even cause less magnesium to be absorbed by the body. Even with a proper, balanced diet, the amount of nutrients in foods today vastly differs from those of even a generation ago. In addition, food preparation methods may decrease the magnesium content of food. For these reasons, it is important to help balance our diets with nutritional supplements that can provide additional nutritional assistance.
Why were these forms of magnesium (citrate and glycinate) chosen?
Both of these forms of magnesium were carefully chosen based on the latest scientific rationale, as they have been shown to have excellent oral absorption rates and work well within the Isotonix® delivery system.
What is the Isotonix delivery system, and how does it work?
Isotonic, which means “same pressure,” bears the same chemical resemblance of the body’s blood, plasma and tears. All fluids in the body have a certain concentration, referred to as osmotic pressure. The body’s common osmotic pressure, which is isotonic, allows a consistent maintenance of body tissues. In order for a substance to be absorbed and used in the body’s metabolism, it must be transported in an isotonic state. When an isotonic substance enters the body, it will be absorbed into the bloodstream rapidly. Isotonix dietary supplements are delivered in an isotonic solution, allowing nutrients to pass directly into the small intestine and be rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream. With Isotonix products, little nutritive value is lost, making the absorption of nutrients highly efficient while delivering maximum results.
Does this product need to be taken on an empty stomach?
Yes. For maximum absorption, the product should be taken on an empty stomach.
Is there anyone who should not take this product?
Anyone who has an ongoing medical condition, is pregnant or breastfeeding, or is taking prescription medication should speak with their healthcare provider before taking this product. Also, magnesium should be used cautiously by those with reduced kidney function.
What other health and nutrition products would complement Isotonix Magnesium?
The benefits of Isotonix Magnesium are complemented by Isotonix OPC-3®, Isotonix Calcium Plus, Isotonix Vitamin D with K2 and Heart Health™ Omega III Fish Oil with Vitamin E.
There are numerous magnesium supplements on the market today, but only Isotonix Magnesium combines a formula blending two different types of magnesium in an isotonic form for maximum absorption by the body with amazing value. Magnesium, the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, is necessary for hundreds of functions. However, the average adult doesn't typically get enough of this important nutrient. For less than a dollar a day, Isotonix Magnesium provides 100% of the recommended daily value of magnesium, an amount other products can't match. Plus, with the revolutionary Isotonix Delivery System, you're giving your body what it needs, how it needs it.
