Benefits energy production, heart and lung function, carbohydrate metabolism, and kidney function.*
Magnesium Citrate is a well-absorbed form of magnesium, which is often deficient in diets but essential for maintaining bone density, normal cardiac rhythmicity, and lung and kidney function.*
Magnesium deficiency is common in the American diet. This is a serious problem, since magnesium plays a role in all the cells of the body and is involved in as many as 600 enzymatic processes, including energy production.* Magnesium is also essential for maintaining bone density, normal cardiac rhythmicity, healthy pulmonary function, and healthy blood glucose levels.*
Magnesium and citric acid have both been found to decrease the precipitation of calcium oxalate and calcium phosphate in the urine, thus supporting good kidney health.* A clinical study indicated that supplementing with magnesium in the form of magnesium citrate offers better absorption than magnesium oxide, a form found in many poorly-absorbed magnesium supplements.*
Other body functions that require magnesium include nerve conduction, methyl-group transfer, conversion of pyridoxine to pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6), and muscle contraction.*
The combination of magnesium with citrate in Thorne's Magnesium Citrate offers an attractive combination for individuals who have a propensity to have calcium oxalate and phosphate particles in their urine – thought to be 7-13 percent of the U.S. adult population.*
