Magnesium citrate is one of the most well-known magnesium compounds. The binding of magnesium to citric acid results in organically bound magnesium citrate. In this form, it can be more easily absorbed from the intestine into the bloodstream and thus has a very good bioavailability.
Since our body can't produce magnesium itself, it is crucial that we supply the daily magnesium requirement with food or with food supplements. Magnesium citrate capsules are well tolerated and can help balance or prevent a magnesium deficiency.
The body cannot directly absorb minerals such as magnesium in their naturally occurring, inorganic form. These minerals first need to be activated in the digestive tract.
This process, which is known as chelation, increases bioavailability, whereby magnesium can be actively channeled and absorbed through the intestinal wall. For bioactive minerals, chelation is taken care of during the production process.
Chelates are organic compounds of minerals such as amino acids, gluconates or citrates. These surround the magnesium molecules and actively channel them through the intestinal wall into the body.
As a result, chelate-bound magnesium achieves optimum bioavailability – which means that much more of it is absorbed compared to conventional magnesium products.
Unfortunately, these days magnesium deficiency is widespread. The reason is that you can't easily get enough magnesium with an average diet. Studies have also shown that, for example, today broccoli contains about 35% less magnesium than it did 10 years ago. Spinach contains 68% less.
If you're an active person, your magnesium requirement is greater since your muscles consume magnesium and you also lose it when you sweat. In addition, persons who drink a lot of coffee, tea, soft drinks or alcohol, eliminate more magnesium through urine. On top of this, any type of stress causes the excretion of magnesium and leads to a deficiency.
Magnesium is involved in the formation of more than 300 vital enzymes in the human body. This fact demonstrates how important it is for performance and bio-energy.
We deliberately only offer magnesium citrate in capsules and as a powder, even if they have a slightly lower magnesium content than magnesium citrate tablets. The reason for this is that magnesium citrate tablets can only be produced using a wide variety of auxiliary substances, such as magnesium stearate, croscarmellose sodium, silicon dioxide or others.
If you want to avoid unnecessary auxiliaries, you should preferably buy magnesium citrate capsules or powder. However, always check the composition of the product, since capsules often contain unnecessary auxiliary substances.
