Mag+ by Sistem uses a chelated magnesium (Magnesium Glycinate), which greatly improves absorption over magnesium citrate.
Magnesium is an essential mineral and electrolyte and has over 300 functions in the body and plays a crucial role in hormonal balance. It affects thyroid function, estrogen detoxification, blood sugar, stress hormones, and more.
This essential mineral helps convert food to energy, makes muscles contract and relax more effectively, and regulates neurotransmitters throughout the brain and nervous system to keep nerves sending and receiving messages efficiently.
More than 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient. A prolonged lack of magnesium in the diet can lead to muscle cramps, raised blood pressure, reduced insulin sensitivity, muscle cramps and spasms, and/or a weakened immune system.
Magnesium supplementation can also reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines.
The standard dosage for magnesium for adults is 250–450 mg/day, or as recommended by your healthcare professional.
Although it can be taken any time of day, we recommend you take Sistem Mag+ in the evening because of the relaxing and calming effect it can have on your mind and body. The most important thing with magnesium is to stay consistent with your supplementation if your diet is lacking in this vital nutrient.
Do not exceed recommended dose. Pregnant and nursing mothers, children under the age of 18, and individuals with a known medical condition should consult a physician before using this or any dietary supplement.
Magnesium can interfere with thyroid medication. May need to be taken at night if you are taking thyroid medication.
