Magnesium: Absorbing Major Minerals

We discussed previously what liposomal delivery systems are. They have holistic benefits that add to your supplement experience. Liposomal delivery allows supplemented nutrients to take greater effect. Their bioavailability increases in the intended absorption areas.

There are roughly two-dozen essential minerals humans must consume to stay healthy. Consuming essential minerals sustains us. We will be discussing one of the most important minerals today: magnesium. 

What Is Magnesium? 

Magnesium is a major mineral. This means it needs to be consumed in greater quantities than trace minerals such as iron and zinc. It functions as a cofactor in enzyme reactions, supporting over three hundred enzyme systems throughout the body. It also functions as a regulatory cofactor in the skeletal, cardiovascular and nervous systems. 

For the average adult, the recommend daily intake is: 

  • Adult Males: 400-420 milligrams/day
  • Adult Females: 310-320 milligrams/day

This mineral can be consumed through a whole food diet. Natural sources include seeds, legumes and whole-grains. If you struggle to consume adequate amounts through your diet, consider supplementation! Supplementation is common as individuals often face deficiencies. But…what are the benefits of magnesium supplementation? And what delivery mechanism best supports your needs? 

What Are the Benefits of Magnesium?

It supports over three hundred enzyme systems in the body. Below are *some* ways it may support body health and functionality. Though we cannot ensure that magnesium will cure any health afflictions, studies show it may support the following: 

Heart Health

It supports healthy heart rhythms. Our hearts are muscles. All muscles require magnesium and calcium to function. Calcium first contracts the heart—magnesium relaxes the heart. Magnesium also supports the sodium-potassium pumps throughout our bodies. Our heart requires functioning sodium-potassium pumps to beat.

Headaches & Migraines

Studies show that individuals suffering from chronic headaches and migraines exhibit higher rates of deficiency. Supplementing magnesium—promoting sufficient levels—may be a great addition to a preventative diet and supplement program.

Bone Health

As with heart health, magnesium and calcium function together to promote bone health. Magnesium works in conjunction with Vitamin D and Calcium to support dense bones. 

Deficiencies may be linked to lowered bone density. 

Fun fact—60% of magnesium in the body is stored in our bones!

Why Should You Choose Liposomal?

Delivery mechanisms matter in supplementation. Liposomal delivery functions via liposomes. Liposomes promote efficiency and efficacy. Liposomal delivery increases absorption by increasing bioavailability. Keep in mind…

You are what you absorb!

Liposomal Magnesium supports the following: 

  • Increased Absorption: liposomes prevent breakdown and increase bioavailability
  • Save Money: a smaller dosage offers the same effect due to increased absorption
  • Fewer Side Effects: successful absorption prevents excess secretions
  • Mineral Efficacy: targeted release encourages standard magnesium benefits to multiply

Mineral sufficiency is vital. But deficiencies are common. Many individuals choose to supplement to assist sufficient levels. When supplementing magnesium, a liposomal delivery system is ideal. It supports bioavailability and consequent absorption. 

Supplementation supports your health journey. Liposomal delivery systems aid supplement goals—fostering increased effects and supporting positive experiences.
