Actually Is/ Often Used As
A component of soil/ an antacid and laxative .
Magnesium ammonium chloride processed with HCL/ fireproofs wood; cathartic .
Magnesium carbonate processed with acids/ a cathartic .
Soil magnesium often concentrated by high heat/ an antacid, cement, and laxative .
Enzymatically processed plant/ only used as Food.
Magnesium salts are not Food--they are laxatives, antacids and cathartics--MAGNESIUM SALTS CAUSE THE BODY TO PURGE ITSELF! Magnesium oxide can be mined, but most commonly it is made by heating magnesium carbonate (a mined rock) to around 700 degrees Celsius . The apparent purpose of doing this is to concentrate the magnesium so that it can better fit into a supplement. The purpose does not appear to be to make it more like Food magnesium, nor to increase absorption. Magnesium oxide contains no complexed magnesium, Food magnesium does  (complexed magnesium is better absorbed [4,10]). Magnesium oxide, like most magnesium salts, is a laxative and an antacid (plus it is also used in certain cements!) , and thus may even promote the loss of other minerals from the body! Magnesium chloride"s main use seems to be to fireproof wood. So why would anyone wish to take these cheap imitations of Food magnesium as a magnesium source?
Interestingly in 1999, the Nobel prize in medicine was awarded for the finding that humans need protein chaperones in order for minerals to be absorbed into the cell. Magnesium mineral salts do not contain protein chaperones, yet 100% Food Magnesium Complex naturally contains protein chaperones such as ceruloplasmin and ATX1 [11,12]. 100% Food Magnesium Complex also naturally contains minerals such as phosphorus and potassium which are needed for proper utilization of magnesium . 100% Food Magnesium Complex even naturally contains superoxide dismutase (S.O.D.). S.O.D. "is one of the most important enzymes that functions as a cellular antioxidant...The absence of this enzyme is lethal" ; studies show it is helpful for the heart, lungs, joints, kidneys, liver, muscles, and skin.
100% Food Magnesium Complex also contains rice bran and vegetable fiber, both of which contain fibers which are important for human health. Few women meet the national recommendations for fiber consumption . Dietary fiber helps regulate nutrient absorption, sterol metabolism, cecal fermentation, and stool weight . Shortages may lead to cholesterol problems, certain cancers, digestive problems, cardiovascular concerns, and nutrient problems [13,14]. Rice bran is also a Food complex source of silicon and B vitamins [6,15,16], which are also naturally in 100% Food Magnesium Complex. 100% Food Magnesium Complex remains THEFoodmagnesium choice. Why take cathartic industrial mineral salts?
Unlike many so-called "natural" magnesium formulas, Magnesium Complex is only comprised of foods, contains no synthetic USP nutrients, but only contains foods, food complexes, and food concentrates. Magnesium Complex contains naturally occurring: phosphorus, potassium, polysaccharides, CoQ10, glutathione, lipoic acid, trace minerals, enzymes, peptides, RNA/DNA, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins (including all ten essential amino acids), proteing chaperones, and the antioxidant superoxide dismutase as found in the listed foods ** all the magnesium in Magnesium Complex is contained in these foods. This product has been tested and is free of pesticides, herbicides, gluten, dairy, and soy.
Numerous university studies have concluded that supplements containing food nutrients are better than USP isolates. Food nutrients are better because they contain important enzymes, peptides, and phytonutrients CRITICAL to the UTILIZATION of vitamins and minerals which are not present in isolated USP nutrients. Published research has concluded that food vitamins are superior synthetic/USP vitamins.
Suggested use: 1-9 tablets per day or as recommended by your health care professional. Adjust usage according to nutritional lifestyle requirements.
