A quick search of PubMed yields thousands of scientific studies highlighting the role and benefits of magnesium in human biochemistry. From migraines and pain management to depression, anxiety, sleeplessness and memory, magnesium has clearly demonstrated enormous versatility as a healing mineral.
Magnesium actually helps to activate over 300 enzymes, the catalyst for every function in the body. It is needed for electrolyte transport across cellular membranes - key to effective nerve conduction, muscle contraction, and cardiac function.
Here are some of the potential health benefits of Magnesium:
According to Consumer Reports, nearly half of all Americans - and 70 to 80 percent of those older than 70 - aren't meeting their daily magnesium needs.
If you answer yes to one or more of the following questions, you may be at risk for magnesium deficiency.
At this point you might be thinking, "Great, I'll just take some pure magnesium."
The problem is, elemental or ionic magnesium never travels alone, it uses the buddy system :) Let’s explain…
You will always see magnesium bound with, or chelated to, another molecule as pure elemental magnesium does not exist alone in nature.
This simply means if you want to supplement with Magnesium you will need to take Magnesium that is attached (bound or chelated) to another substance…the buddy :)
What an excellent question – we like the way you think!
While every company will have different criteria for what makes the best Magnesium supplement, we will take you through our evaluation process…
Here at Perfect Supplements, we believe Mother Nature does it best. Everything we sell is all natural with no synthetics.
Unfortunately, many of the most popular forms of magnesium on the market are made with synthetics, including:
Magnesium Bisglycinate (TRAACS)
Magnesium L-Threonate (Magtein)
Note that the above list represents just a handful of the magnesium supplements that are made with synthetics. There are many other forms of synthetic magnesium on the market.
While some people are fine with taking Magnesium that is chelated or buffered to a synthetic carrier (as all the above are), we do NOT use synthetics in any of our products.
At first glance, Magnesium Oxide supplements look inexpensive… but not when you factor in the fact that only 4% of the dose is actually absorbed into circulation.
Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt) is great to add to your bath, but it does not have high bioavailability when taken orally.
The low bioavailability and absorption of Magnesium Oxide and Magnesium Sulfate led us to cross these sources off the list.
Magnesium Citrate has a long history of use and has been used in hundreds of clinical studies. With high absorption and bioavailability, there was just one big question left…
Could we find Magnesium Citrate made from a natural source with no synthetics?
After months of searching, the answer was YES!
Based on the above, we knew that Magnesium Citrate was the way to go.
The thing is, not all Magnesium Citrate is the same. Some contains synthetics. Others have lower bioavailability and use Inorganic Magnesium. Still others test high in heavy metals.
We spent 6 months requesting samples, doing lab testing and grilling suppliers until we finally found the perfect source for Perfect Magnesium Citrate…
Our goal when making any supplement is to source and produce the highest quality, all natural, lab tested supplements on the market. Period. Full stop.
As a bonus, since we rely on word of mouth rather than costly advertising, we often find that our supplements are some of the most affordable as well…
We believe a supplement can only be called Perfect if it also supports the planet. Perfect Supplements always ensures their ingredients are fairly traded and harvested in a way that does not harm the planet.
We understand there are numerous companies that make Magnesium supplements, but how many can list these credentials...

This is a concentrated form of Magnesium. Some people have a low tolerance for Magnesium, please start by mixing 1/4 serving (1/8 tsp) daily into 8 ounces of water or juice and increase gradually to your comfort level. If tolerance is low, try taking your Magnesium in divided doses throughout the day instead of all at once.
Please Note: Comparable to other Magnesium salts, Magnesium Citrate shows a laxative effect at higher dosage levels.
