A magnesium deficiency is currently rampant in our society: a U.S. Department of Agriculture Dietary Survey shows that at least 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient. Magnesium is a buffering mineral used by the body to neutralize acids. Chronic stress—as well as the acid-producing effects of caffeine, alcohol, processed foods and sugar found in they typical Western diet—deplete magnesium stores in the body.
Pure Essentials Ultra Mg delivers magnesium in fully soluble, fully ionized alkaline salt forms, ready to buffer the body against the damaging effects of acidity. These four different forms address your individual needs, as individuals absorb magnesium differently. Through the combination of these highly bioavailable forms (magnesium glycinate, magnesium ascorbate, magnesium citrate, and magnesium stearate), the individual receives the form of magnesium right for him or her, plus the synergy of the four increases absorption of all.
The key to increasing magnesium status is proper absorption. Most people absorb only 4% to 30% of popular magnesium supplements. Typically, supplements contain the oxide or chloride forms of magnesium, which are difficult to absorb. The four cofactors used in Pure Essentials Ultra Mg deliver magnesium to the cells for maximum absorption, and then add an energy boost when taking their place as activators in the cellular energy production pathway.
Magnesium has hundreds of roles in the body, from energy production to nerve conduction, bone health, cardiovascular health and more. A proper level of magnesium is therefore important not only in maintaining health but also preventing disease. A brief glimpse of its benefits includes:
- Bone mineral health. Magnesium helps balance your calcium supply by keeping it from being excreted. It is also required for the formation of active vitamin D3, which further aids in calcium absorption. For preventing and reversing osteoporosis, therefore, an adequate magnesium level may be as or more important than that of calcium.
- Heart health. Numerous studies show that magnesium is effective for preventing complications in coronary care unit patients. In one study, researchers compared the magnesium and calcium concentrations in the hearts of individuals who died of heart disease to those who died of other causes. Researchers found significantly lower levels of magnesium in patients who died of heart disease compared to the control group. The study concluded that magnesium deficits in the arterial wall may play a role in the disease. Another study evaluated the effects of magnesium supplementation on patients in the early stages of heart disease. At the end of the study, researchers concluded that intravenous administration of magnesium in the immediate, post-infarction period protects the heart and decreases the incidence of arrhythmia, pump dysfunction, and death.
To further ensure maximum absorption of this vital nutrient, take Pure Essentials Ultra Mg with:
- Pure Essentials Ultra Absorb. For some individuals with magnesium deficits, magnesium supplements alone may not be enough to eliminate symptoms. Cells need magnesium to drive the pathway that takes up more magnesium, creating a vicious cycle of deficiency. Fortunately, Pure Essentials Ultra Mg taken with Pure Essentials Ultra Absorb boosts magnesium uptake by combining choline citrate with magnesium, and carrying it as a neutral compound effortlessly through cell membranes.
Pure Essentials 2. When a single mineral like magnesium is taken at high doses, it can sometimes impair absorption of other minerals. It is wise, then, to supplement your food intake with a complete multi-vitamin/mineral supplement such as Pure Essentials 2.
Pure Essentials Ultra Mg is available in bottles of 60 or 180 capsules As a dietary supplement, take one (1) to six (6) capsules daily with meals, or as directed by your health professional.
One (1) Pure Essentials Ultra Mg capsule provides:
Magnesium (as ionized glycinate) 85 mg
Magnesium (as ascorbate) 8 mg
Magnesium (as citrate) 10 mg
Magnesium (as C16 and C18 alkyls) † 7 mg
Total elemental magnesium 110 mg
Vegetable capsule 120 mg
† From whole, untreated palm fruit and leaf
Note: Most magnesium formulas show total magnesium complex, which is 20% or less elemental magnesium. Each Pure Essentials Ultra Mg equals 550 mg or more of other products.
