The Best Magnesium for Supplements

Welcome to this week's episode of the NatureCity podcast! In this episode, we discuss how to best supplement with magnesium, one of the most important minerals that your body needs. Magnesium has been gaining a lot of attention lately as a supplement. Historically, magnesium has been known for helping support bone, brain, and heart health, but with stress levels increasing, the calming and relaxing properties of magnesium have come into focus too.

How important is magnesium? It’s involved in over 300 physiological processes in the body. Magnesium is an essential mineral that our bodies rely on us to provide, yet according to USDA data about 75% of Americans struggle to meet the recommended daily allowance (RDA). We discuss two of the key reasons that are driving this shortfall, which underscore why you should use a high-quality magnesium supplement. We also share some tips on signals your body may be sending to let you know it needs more magnesium.

Many types of magnesium are available as supplements. In this episode, we share what to look for, and why many forms of magnesium fall short. We also share our favorite magnesium for supplements, which is the magnesium bisglycinate chelate (magnesium bonded to the amino acid glycine). It checks all the boxes, including being highly absorbable and useable by the body, without causing gastrointestinal distress like diarrhea or loose stools.

Join us as we explore the topic of magnesium supplements and how they help you live and feel better.
