Here is a side-by-side comparison of ten leading magnesium supplements: Innovix Labs Advanced Magnesium, Doctor's Best High Absorption 100% Chelated Magnesium (240 Count), JigSaw Magnesium w/SRT (120 Count), Nutrigold Magnesium Gold, Now Foods Magnesium Citrate (200 mgs), Natural Vitality Natural Calm Raspberry Lemon, Solgar Magnesium Citrate, Life Extension Magnesium Caps, Thorne Research Magnesium Citrate, and Bluebonnet Nutrition Albion Chelated Magnesium.
INTRODUCTION: Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong. Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis. There is an increased interest in the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.
Magnesium is present in all cells of the body. It is a mineral that is critical for energy production and metabolism, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and bone mineralization. It helps to regulate calcium transport and absorption. By stimulating the secretion of calcitonin, it aids the influx of calcium into bone and promotes optimal bone mineralization. It has been called nature's calcium channel blocker. The idea refers to magnesium's ability to block calcium from entering muscle and heart cells.
Magnesium is the second most prevalent electrolyte in the body, yet over two-thirds of us get less than the minimum recommended 400 mgs per day. Most of us get about half that much. Note that 400 mgs is just enough to keep us from feeling the major deficiency symptoms.Read more ›
I've taken this product for the past 4 years; at the time of my first review this product was mislabeled and it took a lawsuit [see: truthinadvertising period org, look up bluebonnet chelated magnesium] for BlueBonnet to change the label. Since the lawyers almost certainly got a payday and didn't force BB to publicly disclose this to their customers in some fashion other than changing the label (certainly, customers weren't compensated by the class action even though one of the stated reasons for the lawsuit-harm to consumers' wallets), I'm not particularly grateful to them.
As such, I can't say it is cost effective anymore. At the time, according to the information I could obtain (about Albion who I knew supplied Bluebonnet was the best source and pure). That turned out to be incorrect. However, I didn't know since unlike the complaintant in the lawsuit this product didn't and doesn't give me loose stools. I also don't have problems with stearates, unlike some. If you do, you need to look elsewhere (or you can have your allergy treated by seeing a NAET professional). Since Albion was also named as a co-defendant in the same lawsuit and Albion (according to the lawsuit) had the ability to control Bluebonnet's label, I don't know if there was a legal reason or not that forced them to be unable to change it. Perhaps if I had inside information like another reviewer, I would. But it appears there is a some sort of NDA on that, so we won't know unless someone breaks it or leaks documents. Interestingly it seems Nuvira changed its information and pulled/changed labels on its products in response to the lawyers. Perhaps they had a better legal team when they were signing the purchase agreement with Albion.Read more ›
I liked that this product was in an easy to swallow gel cap, but I HATE being misled about contents!
