Magnesium Breakthrough by BioOptimizers - 60 Capsules

Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for all aspects of health. It participates in over 600 different biochemical reactions in your body. Yet, over 80% of the population don’t get the minimum amounts of the types of magnesium they need from diet alone because our soil is and water is deficient. 
           
Even people who supplement tend to take types that are poorly absorbed, or they only take two types of magnesium at most. Each type benefits different tissues and organ systems. If you’re only taking one or two forms, you’re most likely still deficient.
           
BiOptimizers Magnesium Breakthrough is the only supplement on the market that to offer the full spectrum of all seven types of magnesium specially formulated to reach every tissue in your body to provide maximum health benefits and reverses low levels which could be causing health issues.

 Most “healthy” people only get 1-2 forms at best (much of the population is deficient in all forms) — but when you get all 7 major forms of magnesium, that’s when the magic happens.

Magnesium Chelate: This form of magnesium is especially important for muscle building, recovery, and health.
Magnesium Citrate: Helps with the effects of obesity. In fact, one study found that this form helped arterial stiffness in healthy overweight individuals.
Magnesium Bisglycinate: Often used to treat symptoms of excess stomach acid, such as stomach upset, heartburn, and acid indigestion.
Magnesium Malate: Some believe this to be the most bioavailable form of magnesium. It’s found naturally in fruits, giving them a “tart taste.” Magnesium Malate can help with migraines, chronic pain, and depression.  
Magnesium Sucrosomial: This form of magnesium helps you to effectively produce energy. It also supports the immune system and is critical for bone health and skeletal development. 
Magnesium Taurate: This is the form of magnesium best for your heart. One study noted: “The complex magnesium taurate may thus have considerable potential as a vascular-protective nutritional supplement.”  
Magnesium Orotate: While also helpful for the heart, magnesium orotate is believed to be the best form for metabolic improvements. This makes it a favorite for athletes seeking enhanced recovery, energy and performance. 
           
Vitamin B6 is included in Breakthrough Magnesium given it improves magnesium absorption and bioavailability. A clinical study compared the effects of magnesium with magnesium combined with B6. They found that subjects who enrolled with severe stress experienced 24% greater reduction in stress scores with magnesium and vitamin B6 compared with magnesium alone. The vitamin B6 in this product is made from carbohydrate fermentation (not potato starch).           

How To Take BIOptimizers Magnesium:
When you take magnesium in the morning, it supports brain/ cognitive function and stress response throughout the day, making it ideal for those with adrenal dysfunction. In the evening, magnesium promotes relaxation and may help with sleep. Some people may decide to divide their magnesium supplement doses throughout the day. 

To support sleep, take 1-3 capsules on an empty stomach 1 hour before bedtime.

For tough days where stress levels are high, try starting the day with three capsules in the AM and then two capsules every two hours until your desired level of calm is achieved.
       
It is better to take mineral supplements, such as magnesium, on an empty stomach because you will absorb it more efficiently. However, some people experience upset stomach, so they take it with food. Studies of inorganic magnesium salts (oxide, chloride, and sulfate) found that stomach acid is necessary for magnesium absorption, so they need to be taken on an empty stomach. However, organic magnesium salts (citrate, glycinate, chelate, etc) are more readily absorbed even when taken with food.
       
Our bodies don’t store magnesium well. It is generally excreted from your system within 24 hours of intake. Therefore, it is important to take magnesium every day.

The Magnesium Loading Program: For those keen to take their magnesium to the next level, you might like to try the magnesium loading program. Over a six week period, the loading program will take your body from a state of deficiency to optimal levels. Once optimal levels are achieved, dropping back down to the maintenance dose is recommended.

The beginning dose is one capsule in the AM, Afternoon and one hour before bed.
Moving up to two capsules in the AM, Afternoon and one hour before bed. 
Ending with three capsules in the AM, Afternoon and one hour before bed.

The Maintenance Dose: 
For a maintenance dose program, BIOptimizers suggest taking 1-2 capsules in the morning to calm the nervous system for the day - perfect for those struggling with adrenal dysfunction and high cortisol burn rates in the morning. 

Can you take magnesium when pregnant?
Yes. For pregnant women, magnesium stores are rapidly depleted particularity in the third trimester. Hormonal changes during pregnancy also cause more magnesium to be excreted through the urine.                
 
Is this product safe for children?
No. The recommended daily allowance of magnesium for children 9-12 is 240 mg/day which is lower than included in Magnesium Breakthrough®.                
**If you have kidney problems or are on medications that many affect mineral balance (e.g. hypertension medication), it is important to speak to your physician before introducing a magnesium supplement.
