Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body. In fact, every cell in your body contains it and needs it to function. Besides bone health, magnesium is involved in more than 600 reactions in your body.*
Great supplements start with quality ingredients. At Pure Essence, we certify the purity, potency and integrity of all of our ingredients.
Bamboo helps strengthens bones, increase connective tissue and improve overall joint flexibility.*
Your body relies on ionic minerals and trace minerals to conduct billions of tiny electrical impulses. Without these impulses, not a single muscle would be able to function.*
How to Use
1 scoop daily (an hour before bed if used to support sleep). Stir in warm or cold water or your favorite beverage.
A Healthy Balance
Magnesium and calcium play opposite roles to keep your body in balance. Magnesium helps blood flow freely, while calcium helps it clot. Calcium excites nerves, while magnesium calms them. Calcium forces muscle contraction, and magnesium allows rest between contractions.
When two nutrients support opposite sides of crucial functions, it is vital to get the right amount of each. Our diet does not support this balance. Dr. Jean Durlach (a leading magnesium expert) says that health suffers if we consume more than two mg of calcium for each mg of magnesium (2:1 calcium to magnesium ratio). The healthiest ratio is thought to be between one and one and a half mg of calcium for each mg of magnesium.
Do You Get Enough Magnesium?
In the United States, the average calcium to magnesium ratio is around 4:1 for women and 3:1 for men. According to magnesium researchers worldwide, this is extremely unhealthy. One daily serving of 300 mg of magnesium is enough to get most of us under the 2:1 ratio, and two servings will drop the ratio into the 1:1 to 1.5:1 range. Two servings is probably a good idea for those using calcium supplements.
Magnesium’s Many Benefits
Stress: When you have good calcium and magnesium balance, calcium resides outside your cells, and magnesium remains inside. When stress occurs, the calcium floods into cells, exciting neurons and causing muscle tension. At this point, magnesium must push calcium back out so that cells can relax. Of course, if you don’t have enough magnesium, this can’t happen, and you feel “stressed out.” In fact, too little magnesium can actually cause stress.
Sleep: Because low magnesium inhibits relaxation, it can cause difficulties in falling and remaining sleep. The resulting lack of sleep may trigger anxiety, nervousness, headaches and constipation. Many people say their sleep patterns improve with increased magnesium intake.
Cramps: Two proteins (actin and myosin) regulate the contraction and relaxation of muscles. Calcium causes these proteins to shorten, so that muscles contract. Magnesium causes them to lengthen so that muscles relax. Too much calcium or too little magnesium may thereby contribute to cramps.
Energy: Magnesium is vital in your energy production process. Mitochondria are the machines that make energy in cells. Stress damages them. Magnesium helps to repair existing mitochondria and build new ones. It is also part of the energy molecule made in your mitochondria.
Bones: Calcium builds bone density. Magnesium aids in calcium absorption and helps it reach the bones. Magnesium also gives bones their flexibility (so that they are less brittle) and helps with the constant process of “remodeling” bone tissue by regulating hormones called PTH and calcitonin.
Other Benefits: In every moment of every day, your cells conduct millions of biochemical actions. Health is the reflection of how efficiently these actions occur. Enzymes empower these actions, and magnesium is part of over 300 enzyme systems – more than any other nutrient. This is why magnesium supports healthy blood sugar, cardiovascular health, brain function, nerve health and immune response.
Ionic-Fizz™ Magnesium Plus™
Ionic-Fizz™ Magnesium Plus™ is the world’s most comprehensive magnesium supplement. Each serving provides 300 mg of magnesium from magnesium carbonate along with citric acid. When mixed with water, the citric acid liberates the magnesium ions from the carbonate. Thus, what reaches your stomach is pure, ionic magnesium that is instantly bioavailable, even for those with sluggish digestion.*
Ionic-Fizz™ Magnesium Plus™ also contains every co-nutrient magnesium requires to work at peak efficiency, and beats the taste of any other magnesium drink.*
Careful ingredient sourcing and using the right tests to ensure safety and quality are a priority for us. Here are our lab results for the current batch of Ionic-Fizz™ Magnesium Plus™.
Heavy Metal Testing
Four stars instead of five because the company changed the flavor profile a couple of times. The best was two iterations ago. The current is an improvement over the last one, but I’m still looking for the classic to return. So four stars.
While my family still won’t tolerate this flavor, I’m able to endure it, and so I get my daily dose of minerals easily with Ionic Fizz. I just keep it in my water bottle and sip it throughout the day. Very convenient.
Helps greatly with restless legs and cramping
I like the flavor and ease of use of this supplement. I drink it about an hour before bed. It's become part of my nighttime routine.
I don't ever want to be without this stuff. Gets rid of leg cramps right away!
I did not like the flavor of it but it works very good
