Quick Overview

    Product Description

    A study comparing the bioavailability of magnesium citrate with magnesium oxide (a form found in many poorly absorbed mineral products) found significantly greater absorption of magnesium citrate than magnesium oxide in healthy volunteers. The same researchers examined solubility and found magnesium citrate to be 55-percent soluble in water; whereas, magnesium oxide was virtually insoluble. The more water-soluble a mineral chelate is, the more absorbable it is.

    Magnesium has been found to decrease the precipitation of calcium oxalate and calcium phosphate in the urine, thus preventing the formation of kidney stones. Supplementation of magnesium has been shown to prevent the recurrence of kidney stones. Citric acid also has the capacity
    to inhibit urinary calcium oxalate and phosphate crystals. Thus, the combination of magnesium with citrate in our Magnesium Citrate offers an attractive combination for this patient population – about 10 percent of men will experience a kidney stone at some time during their lifetime.
