EASY-TO-ABSORB AND FAST ACTING: THE ORGANIC COMPOUND MAGNESIUM CITRATE
We need to have adequate magnesium stores for our body to function. The body obtains magnesium from food because it cannot produce it on its own. Organic forms of magnesium, such as magnesium citrate, can be found in certain foods. This organic form of magnesium is easily absorbed and fast acting. But what exactly is magnesium citrate?
WHAT IS MAGNESIUM CITRATE?
Understanding what magnesium citrate is requires a little chemistry! Magnesium is a mineral that never occurs in nature in isolation but is always bound as a salt. A distinction is made between organic and inorganic salts. Magnesium citrate is the salt of citric acid, and as such it is one of the organic salts.
Magnesium citrate has another feature, which is that it is highly bioavailable and water soluble so the body can absorb it quickly. For this reason, nearly all Magnesium Diasporal® products contain easy-to-absorb magnesium citrate.
Magnesium Diasporal® OTC pharmaceuticals combine a high-quality magnesium compound with suitable dosage forms, which guarantee their consistently high quality. Both of these factors need to be correct in order to deliver an adequate supply of magnesium.
