Source Naturals: Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate With 75% of Americans Deficient, It's No Wonder We Are So Stressed
Magnesium is crucial for health, yet most of us don’t get enough from our diets. In fact, it is estimated that three-fourths of Americans do not get sufficient quantities of magnesium to function optimally on a day-to-day basis. The importance of magnesium cannot be overstated: magnesium is a vital catalyst for enzyme activity, affecting over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body including supporting cardiovascular
health, bone building, muscle relaxation, protein synthesis, energy generation and brain neurotransmitter activities that regulate moods and sleep. Because magnesium is required for muscle relaxation, its deficiency is a leading cause of the widespread stress that plagues America and the West. Throughout the world, researchers have confirmed the human need for magnesium. Renowned Swedish researcher P.O. Wester, in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (1987;45:130512) wrote, “The fact that magnesium is indispensible to the metabolism of ATP means that it is essential in a great many metabolic processes such as glucose utilization; synthesis of fat, protein, and nucleid acids; muscle contraction; and some membrane transport systems.” It is so fundamental to health that eminent nutritionist and biochemist James South stated that even though magnesium is basic and inexpensive, due to its widespread deficiency and critical importance to human health, it is possibly the most important nutritional supplement one can take.

Why Are We Magnesium Depleted?
Many Americans exhaust the natural magnesium they obtain from their diets with such substances as caffeine, alcohol and soft drinks All notorious for their depletion of dietary magnesium. Physical or emotional stress also decreases this important mineral. Our stressful reactions to our environment use up the magnesium stores. Our dietary choices as a society Choosing junk food over green, magnesium rich vegetables, for example also contribute to this deficiency. In fact, lack of greens in the diet is a very strong indication of magnesium deficiency because magnesium is at the center of the chlorophyll molecule that gives green color to vegetables, herbs, and other plants. dietary imbalances such as high intake of fat or calcium can intensify magnesium inadequacy, especially under conditions of stress. These various diet and lifestyle choices leach away or diminish the mineral, so we lose its availability for the body's needs.
Sometimes the causes of magnesium deficiency are beyond our control: many believe that our foods contain less magnesium that has been depleted from the soil. The food preparation practices of many people can contribute to magnesium deficiency. And many people, as they age, have decreased abilities to absorb magnesium regardless of their diet or lifestyle. The result of all of these factors is a huge segment of society that is nutritionally starved for magnesium's benefits.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
