Liquid Magnesium by Douglas Laboratories supplies magnesium citrate in a great-tasting pomegranate flavored liquid, sweetened naturally with stevia.
Magnesium is a mineral with an important physiological function in the body. However, typical diets in the U.S. and other industrialized countries often provide less than adequate amounts of magnesium. Dietary sources of magnesium include legumes, whole grains, vegetables (especially broccoli, squash, and green leafy vegetables), seeds, and nuts (especially almonds).
About one third of dietary magnesium is absorbed. The efficiency of absorption depends on magnesium stores in the body, among other factors. Certain medications can deplete levels of magnesium in the body. Supplementation with bioavailable forms of magnesium such as citrate salts can help bridge the gap between dietary intake and optimal requirement.
Liquid Magnesium is indicated for individuals that require magnesium supplementation and prefer liquid form.
