Magnesium Chloride Liquid by Nutricology
Nutricology Magnesium Chloride Liquid 8 oz. (236 ml)
Nutricology Magnesium Chloride Liquid is a highly absorbable form of magnesium, formulated to be better tolerated by the gastrointestinal tract. Magnesium chloride is very well studied and generally well tolerated. Magnesium (Mg) is one of seven macrominerals considered essential for human health; the others are sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, chlorine and sulfur. Magnesium contributes significantly to bone formation and mineralization, helping to strengthen the bones and the teeth. It plays a role in the regulation of muscle and nerve activity through influencing cell membrane permeability, and functions as an electrolyte, helping maintain the charge balance in the body fluids. The adult human body contains 20-28 grams of magnesium. Of this total amount, about 40% is found in the muscle and soft tissues, about 1% in the extracellular fluid, and the remainder in the skeleton. Surveys over recent years suggest that as much as 40% of the U.S. population may be deficient in magnesium.
In solution, magnesium ions have two positive charges (Mg++), and magnesium as an electrolyte is critical in the electrical activity of nerve, muscle, and other tissues. More than 300 enzymes are known to be activated by magnesium, and as a consequence numerous biochemical pathways require magnesium. Calcium is also required for a variety of pathways and processes, and these two macrominerals are normally maintained in a “yin-yang” balance, in which either can synergize or antagonize the action of the other. Magnesium is also important for the homeostatic regulation of the two other major electrolytes in the body, potassium and sodium. Magnesium plays a role in the cardiovascular and GI systems, peripheral vascular function, energy production, and the heart, brain, kidney and liver. For instance, magnesium is involved in the body’s homeostatic maintenance of blood pressure and heart rhythm. Frank magnesium deficiency can result in nausea, loss of muscle tonicity and strength, electromyographic abnormalities, irritability and mental derangement.
Athletes and laborers can become low in magnesium, because perspiring and the use of large muscles tend to deplete it. Lactating women require higher magnesium intake, as do adolescents. In a healthy person, half of the ingested magnesium is typically absorbed. But many lifestyle, environmental, and dietary factors can lower the availability of magnesium, including missed meals, the use of diuretics for weight loss, fast and high-fat foods, alcohol, and soft drinks, which are high in phosphates that leach magnesium from the body. Additionally, acid rain washes magnesium out of the soil, fluoridation depletes it from drinking water, and the processing of grains and other foods lowers their magnesium content.
Quality and Innovation - The NutriCology Tradition
For more than thirty years, NutriCology has been known for the highest quality, most hypoallergenic, and most cutting-edge nutritional supplements available. Physicians and healthcare practitioners around the world depend on NutriCology for their patients' nutritional support. Originating with the ground-breaking oxidant/antioxidant work of Stephen Levine, Ph.D., NutriCology was one of the first to introduce truly hypoallergenic products to the market.
Superior Quality Control
Since 1979, NutriCology has used only the purest raw materials available, and has implemented strict quality control procedures in every stage of production, including inspection of raw materials, manufacturing, packaging, and storing. NutriCology is licensed by the California Department of Health Services, Food and Drug Branch, registration number 0021150.
Nutricology products are manufactured under the recognized principles of current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP), brought into final form by the FDA in June 2007. The GMP standards are applied to a wide variety of procedures associated with the manufacturing of dietary supplements, including receiving, testing, and approval of raw materials, production, and process controls, laboratory testing of labeled and packaged finished product, distribution control and accountability, and shelf life expiration testing to ensure freshness and potency.
For many years they have used the same manufacturers to produce their powder formulas, capsules, tablets, softgels, gels, and liquid products to ensure consistency. All of Nutricology's certified manufacturers meet or exceed cGMP requirements established by the FDA, as well as state and local regulations. In their facility in Alameda, California, highly trained staff bottle, label, and ship finished products. Their newly installed automatic bottling line has multiple built-in quality checks, such as weight verification and metal detection, to ensure all finished packaged products have the pre-determined physical count and are contaminant-free.
Unsurpassed Ingredient Quality
NutriCology uses only the purest and highest quality raw materials available. For example, they use only Nattokinase NSK-SD, the first nattokinase introduced into the US market, which has established standardization and quality levels for all other nattokinase. Their MicroChitosan contains small-size chitosan oligosaccharide, and Prima Uña de Gato contains TOA-free Cat's Claw.
Taber's Medical Dictionary defines "hypoallergenic" as: "Diminished potential for causing an allergic reaction". Nutricology defines hypoallergenic as "free of all common allergens", specifically, wheat, corn, soy, gluten, yeast, dairy, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, and peanuts. Many very sensitive individuals who react to supplements in general are able to tolerate NutriCology products.
Since their inception in 1979, Nutricology has used only the purest, and whenever possible, the lowest allergy potential natural ingredients. And while many of the nutrients in their formulas are synthesized from natural plant substances, which as a whole may contain antigens, the synthesizing process removes the molecules of the desired nutrient from the original substance, and in the processing, a great percentage of the antigens and allergens are left behind. The final material then has extremely low allergy potential. This is not to say that no one will react to any of these hypoallergenic formulas, as some extremely sensitive people may. However, the potential for an allergic reaction is low, and the feedback from many extremely allergic and sensitive customers is that NutriCology supplements are often the only products they are able to tolerate.
The FDA requires manufacturers to identify the presence of eight major food allergens on all product labels: milk, egg, fish, Crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybeans, as well as any ingredient derived from those foods. When an ingredient may have been derived from a common allergen, we are required by law to list that allergen on the label as a source of the ingredient, even if it does not contain any of the actual substance. For example, 100%-pure glucosamine sulfate does not contain any actual shellfish, but we are required to indicate the source material (shrimp, crab, lobster) on the label. NutriCology fully discloses all ingredients, both active and inactive on every product label, so doctors can make fully informed choices for their patients' nutritional support.
