Sanderson Magnesium FX 1000 is a high absorption complex of organic magnesium salts and does not contain inorganic magnesium oxide or phosphate, which have poor bioavailability; while magnesium oxide has a high elemental magnesium content, bioavailabilty may be as low as 4%.
Magnesium FX 1000 has been formulated to include magnesium citrate, magnesium aspartate, magnesium orotate and magnesium amino acid chelate. Research has shown these organic forms are much better absorbed and are better utilized than inorganic forms.
This formulation also contains vitamin B6, vitamin D and selenium as co-factors involved in the optimal absorption and utilization of magnesium.
SANDERSON™ Magnesium FX 1000 may be useful for healthy heart function; muscle relaxation; sleep and relaxation; nervous system balance; PMS associated with cramps and changes in mood; anxiety, mood and irritability. Supplementation with magnesium may also provide support to sufferers of migraine headaches.
Taking too much magnesium may lead to diarrhea. More serious problems can develop with excessive magnesium intake from magnesium-containing laxatives. However, the amounts of magnesium found in nutritional supplements are unlikely to cause such problems. People with kidney disease should not take magnesium supplements without consulting a doctor. Magnesium has a range of beneficial and adverse interactions with various medications so if you are taking a medication you should check with your health professional before taking it.
