In a period like the summer when there is so much talk of mineral salts, including magnesium, let's explain better what is meant by Supreme Magnesium because it is not a way of saying but a registered trademark which refers to a food supplement based on magnesium carbonate and citric acid. It is produced by an Italian company that markets it as a product to facilitate and speed up absorption in the intestine.
Supreme Magnesium: what it contains
Let's take a look at a package of this product to understand what lies behind this high-sounding name. Reading thelabel, quite simply, one can learn that supreme magnesium is composed of acidifier, citric acid, magnesium carbonate. Both magnesium carbonate (MgCO3) and citric acid (C6H8O7) in contact with water react giving rise magnesium citrate and releasing carbon dioxide. This is why the result is effervescent. It should be noted that in the composition of the product there is not directly magnesium citrate but only once the water is used it is formed.
Supreme Magnesium: use
To take this product, you need to dissolve a coffee spoon in hot water and wait for the sparkling blend to become transparent before drinking it. We can take this dose once or twice a day, no more. With two teaspoons we take 430mg of Elemental magnesium, equal to 114.6% of the Nutrient Reference Values for an adult, as established by reg. EU 1169/2011.
Supreme Magnesium: Side Effects
Usually no particular problems arise when taking this substance which is on average well tolerated. Only in case of overdoses improper or hypersensitivity to a particular product, digestive disorders such as nausea and abdominal pain, or intestinal, such as diarrhea, may occur. Also possible allergic reactions, including dermatological ones.
In principle, if you exaggerate a little and do not have specific health problems, the excessive amount of supreme magnesium it is expelled from the body through feces and urine, or with sweat, without anything special happening.
On subjects who have serious kidney problems, this does not happen and the supreme magnesium increases the risk of hypermagnesemia. Problems such as arrhythmias, respiratory depression and alterations in neuromuscular transmission. These are cases in which we tend not to use supreme magnesium to avoid all these problems related to it and in any case it is necessary to proceed with the assistance of a doctor who can monitor the situation.
As a precaution, the health ministry requires for food supplements containing this substance, a daily limit of 450mg. You will notice that it is slightly higher than the recommended dosage on the label for the supplement covered by this article, equal to 430mg.
If you are healthy and do not take risks side effects you can benefit from the properties of the supreme magnesium, let's see what they are. The magnesium citrate that we can get from the Supreme is one of the many magnesium salts that we find on the market for dietary and pharmaceutical use. You have certainly heard me mention several and maybe you have even used them. I am referring to magnesium carbonate, magnesium oxide, magnesium sulfate, magnesium chloride and so on. There are many and it is not easy to find your way around understanding the different physical and chemical characteristics and also the different ways of use.
If we are faced with a magnesium supplement, to try to understand a little more we must look for the following information. The percentage of elemental magnesium, to understand how much magnesium is actually contained in the product, and the bioavailability, to know the percentage of magnesium that we actually absorb for each ingested dose. There bioavailability it is a very important concept that makes a difference when choosing one magnesium salt instead of another. There are salts, for example, very rich in magnesium, such as magnesium oxide, but not very bioavailable and therefore in fact we are not able to absorb. This magnesium oxide is in fact mostly used as a laxative because it draws water into the intestine and softens the stool.
Without going to analyze each magnesium salt, we can say that the organic forms of this mineral (magnesium lactate, magnesium citrate, magnesium succinate, magnesium aspartate, magnesium glycinate, magnesium taurinate) are more bioavailable than inorganic forms (magnesium chloride, magnesium carbonate, magnesium oxide, magnesium sulfate etc.). An exception should be made for the magnesium chloride which has a decent bioavailability because it is soluble in water.
