Slow-Mag Tablets are enteric-coated to help prevent stomach upset, and formulated with magnesium chloride for increased absorption versus magnesium oxide.

    Are there any factors that can deplete my magnesium levels?
    Yes. Poorly controlled diabetes, chronic or excessive vomiting or diarrhea, loop/thiazide diuretics (water pills) and other medications can all deplete magnesium levels. High alcohol intake has also been associated with magnesium deficiency.

    Why is magnesium important?
    Magnesium is an important mineral in a healthy diet, essential for the functioning of over 300 enzymes.

    Magnesium has been linked to a wide range of vital health functions and is necessary for:

    • normal protein synthesis and carbohydrate metabolism
    • proper muscle function
    • energy metabolism
    • helping the body utilize calcium and potassium properly
    • In addition, proper magnesium levels help maintain normal heart rhythms

    Yes. Magnesium chloride provides increased absorption versus the magnesium oxide formulation used in many other magnesium supplement products.

    Magnesium Supplements
    Magnesium is a mineral needed by every cell of your body, as well as for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Approximately 50% of total body magnesium is found in bone. The other half is found predominantly inside cells of body tissues and organs. The body works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium constant, yet only 1% of your body’s total magnesium is found in the blood. Magnesium has been linked to a wide range of vital health functions and is a mineral that is important to help maintain good cardiovascular health and proper muscle function.

    Did You Know?
    Intense physical activity can cause sweating that can lead to magnesium loss from your body.

    Why is Magnesium Important?
    Magnesium, the mineral that is important to help maintain good cardiovascular health, has been shown to be one of the most vital minerals in our diet.

    • Magnesium may help support learning and memory performance in aging adults.
    • A proper magnesium level supports regulation of a key brain receptor involved in maintaining cognitive function.
    • Magnesium is essential for the processes involved in supporting learning and memory.
    • Adequate magnesium levels may help maintain proper communication amongst the nervous system and other body systems in aging adults.
    • Maintaining proper magnesium levels helps regulate a key brain receptor important for supporting learning and memory function in aging adults.

    What Does Magnesium Do?

    • Magnesium has been linked to a wide range of vital health functions and is the mineral that is important to help maintain good cardiovascular health.
    • Proper magnesium levels help maintain normal heart rhythms.
    • Magnesium helps maintain blood pressure levels already within a normal range.
    • Magnesium may help to maintain the function of the heart, muscles, and nervous system.
    • Magnesium is necessary for the role it plays in helping the body to utilize calcium and potassium properly.
    • Magnesium is necessary for normal protein synthesis, carbohydrate metabolism, proper muscle function and helps to absorb calcium and potassium.
    • Calcium helps ensure strong bones and teeth and is necessary for normal nerve and muscle function.
    • Magnesium is essential for normal energy metabolism and nucleic acid synthesis.
    • Magnesium levels can be depleted by many medications, including loop/thiazide diuretics.
    • Magnesium is essential for the functioning of over 300 enzymes.

    How Common is Magnesium Deficiency?
    According to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), 7 out of 10 of Americans don't get enough magnesium from diet alone. Adults with certain illnesses, chronic conditions, or taking medicines that are associated with magnesium depletion may be at particular risk of developing a deficiency. 

    Adults at risk of magnesium depletion may include:
    Adults with uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes have a high risk of magnesium deficiency. Up to 48% of Type 2 diabetics reportedly experience low blood magnesium levels (hypomagnesemia).

    Up to 90% of patients administered cisplatin have reportedly developed hypomagnesemia.

    Long-term use of diuretics may also cause hypokalemia. Potassium depletion is associated with diminished magnesium reabsorption and may lead to increased magnesium excretion.

    Medical conditions which may be associated with magnesium depletion include: extensive bowel resection, intestinal or biliary fistulas, celiac disease, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, protein calorie malnutrition, hyperaldosteronism, hyperparathyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and pancreatic insufficiency.

    Medications that can deplete magnesium include: Aminoglycosides: amikacin, gentamicin, neomycin, streptomycin, tobramycin. Loop/thiazide diuretics: furosemide, bumetanide, chlorthalidone, ethacrynic acid, hydrochlorothiazide, indapamide, metolazone, torsemide

    Others: cyclosporine, cisplatin, carboplatin, pentamidine, foscarnet, ticarcillin, amphotericin, digoxin, tacrolimus, sirolimus, aldesleukin, gemtuzumab, acetazolamide.
