In the complex puzzle of health, magnesium emerges as a key piece, often overlooked.

This essential mineral plays a crucial role in various body functions, from muscle function to bone health and emotional balance.

The insidious lack of magnesium may go unnoticed in conventional blood tests, but its effects manifest through a series of symptoms.

From chronic fatigue to muscular and emotional issues, the lack of this essential mineral can significantly impact the quality of life. Therefore, the question arises: how can we address these deficiencies?

We will explore the world of magnesium supplementation, a recommended step in certain contexts.

However, before delving into the various types of supplements, it is crucial to understand some fundamental aspects.

Magnesium absorption not only depends on the quantity ingested but also on various factors. The presence of phytates in cereals, seeds, and nuts can reduce absorption.

Balance is the Key

Furthermore, absorption is linked to the magnesium level in tissues; the lower the levels, the more will be absorbed and assimilated.

Once magnesium stores are filled, the excess is eliminated through urine and feces. The need to monitor symptoms and adjust doses becomes evident.

Balance is key, and excess can manifest through an increase in urinary frequency. Now, some magnesium supplements for you to know.

Magnesium Chloride. With a high absorption rate, it is essential for the body. However, its acidic pH may not be suitable for those with stomach acidity.

Magnesium Carbonate. With over 40% magnesium, it is bioavailable and transforms into chloride in the presence of stomach acidity.

Magnesium Citrate. Although it has a low magnesium concentration, its bioavailability exceeds 15%. It attracts water in the intestine, benefiting stool formation.

Magnesium Oxide. Despite its high concentration, intestinal absorption is less than 5%, making it more suitable as a laxative or antacid.

Magnesium Sulfate. Known as Epsom salt, it is used in baths to relieve pains, but oral absorption can be problematic.
