Longevity Science Magna-Calm™ is a water-soluble form of magnesium citrate. Magnesium is an essential nutrient, the activating mineral for at least 350 different enzymes in the body, more than any other mineral.
Many factors can increase the rate of magnesium depletion in the body. Physiological factors, such as mental or physical stress, an underactive thyroid, diabetes, and chronic pain can all contribute to depletion of magnesium. Dietary habits, such as higher consumption of sugar, coffee, soft drinks, use of several types of medical drugs, and diets high in carbohydrates, fiber, or calcium may also, in part, lead to magnesium deficiency.
Magnesium absorption is as important as magnesium intake. Most people believe that regular magnesium supplements, such as tablets or capsules, will resolve magnesium deficiency. Unfortunately, however, individuals can supplement with the RDI for magnesium every single day and still be in a deficient state. Studies show that many common magnesium forms are poorly absorbed. Magnesium citrate is one of the most absorbable forms. Magna-Calm™ has a pleasant effervescence, and a good-tasting natural lemon flavor. One scoop provides 420mg of elemental magnesium.

Commenting on the report, Richard Rivlin, MD of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, said there was "a high general awareness of the importance of nutrients such as vitamin C and calcium, but it is clear that consumers are largely unaware of the role of magnesium." Another survey presented to the Autism Society of America cited a magnesium deficiency figure of 80% among Americans.
