Magnesium (Mg) is one of the most important elements when it comes to the proper functioning of our bodies. It is said that it takes part in over 300 biochemical processes. It is vital in the normal functioning of many different organ systems: nervous, muscle, cardio-vascular, respiratory, digestive, hormonal, hematopoietic, immune-, and osteo-articular. A lack of magnesium may lead to anxiety and nervousness, chronic fatigue, dysfunction of memory and concentration, a lower resistance to stress, muscle spasms, tingling hands, and heart palpitations. 

The demand for magnesium in an adult human is around 300-400 mg/day and is dependent on age, gender, and physiological conditioning (i.e. for pregnant or breast-feeding women the amount increases to around 450 mg/day).

Magnesium Citrate- an organic compound from the citrate family, is a salt of citric acid and magnesium. It is used as a dietary supplement. Magnesium citrate contains the chelete form of magnesium. These types of compounds are non-toxic and easily absorbed by the body.

Causes of magnesium deficiency

Poor eating habits, alcohol abuse, coffee/strong tea, high-carb diet, stress, weight loss, use of oral contraceptives, antibiotics and tranquilizers, hypnotics etc. that limit magnesium's absorption or increase excretion may lead to a serious shortage of this compound. Moreover, bas a result of the chemical fertilization of the soil with compounds containing potassium, as well as using an excessive amount of food preservatives- the amount of magnesium in food is lower.

Dosage

As a diet supplement, 1662 mg (½ teaspoon) to 3325 mg (1 teaspoon) of magensium citrate can be used daily.

Synergy

B6 vitamin increases the effectivenes of magnesium's function by facilitating its absorption, transportation to the body's cells, and the retention of its intracellular stock.
Potassium- this combination is recommended for older individuals, for those with high blood pressure or any other vardio-vascular problems.

RELIABLE INFORMATION

Our website contains objective and reliable information based on current scientific publications. We care about maintaining a high level of quality standards in the articles we publish by keeping our site up-to-date and making sure the information we place on it is clear and transparent. The authors of the website content are scientists from UJ, a neuropsychologist and a chemist.


PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE

At Allchemy.eu, professionalism is of our utmost interest. Our team consists of a neuropsychologist, a pharmacist, a chemist, a psychologist, and a physicist. We don't just “do business.” This is our passion and we test all available chemical agents on ourselves, selecting the most interesting ones while discarding those that we deem dangerous or harmful.


INSTANT SHIPPING

Do you value time and comfort? We ship our packages through DPD courier, Polish Post Office, and Inpost post boxes- every day! Orders made before 10 AM are shipped on the same day!


HASSLE-FREE RETURNS

We care about your satisfaction. That is why you can always return an originally sealed product within 30 days of purchase, no reason necessary.

LABORATORY QUALITY TESTING

The products found in our catalog come from tested and trusted sources, are certified, and undergo laboratory analyses- i.e HPLC, GC, TLC; 1 H NMR spectroscopy, IR, AAS, and the physiochemical parameters -temperature melting point, pH, humidity.


VACCUUM PACKAGING

Vaccuum packaging protects our chemical agents from the effects of oxygen and air moisture. Oxygen is a very reactive compound that causes the oxidation and breakdown of certain compounds, while water facilitates the development of bacteria and processes of hydrolysis. Thanks to the vaccuum packaging of sensitive compounds, our clients receive top quality products that can also be kept for later use. Nevertheless, it is important to remember to tightly reseal the packaging by removing any air from the bag and precisely closing the seal. This will pay off!
