When is the best time to take Magnesium + Chamomile?
It is suggested to take Magnesium + Chamomile before bed to help promote a restful night sleep. It can also be taken during the day if you are feeling restless or want to promote relaxation
Why is there Zinc, B6 and Taurine in Magnesium + Chamomile?
Zinc enables your body to absorb magnesium more efficiently while Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal 5’-phophate) and Taurine facilitate magnesium’s uptake into cells. This allows for better absorption and utilization of Magnesium in your body
What is the difference in types of Magnesium?
Once added to water, the ingredients of Magnesium carbonate and Citric Acid will have a chemical reaction to form active ionic Magnesium Citrate
Magnesium bound to citric acid. Magnesium Citrate is one of the most popular and easily absorbed forms of magnesium. Citric acid is a large molecule so there is less elemental magnesium per capsule/dose. Citric acid can act as a mild osmotic laxative, pulling water into the intestines providing additional benefits for those suffering from constipation.
Magnesium bound to the amino acid glycine. This is a very gentle form of magnesium for those who have sensitive stomachs or a tendency to diarrhea. Glycine is a non-essential amino acid that can potentiate magnesium’s calming effects. Magnesium Bis-glycinate is a great form to promote sleep and relaxation. However, because glycine is a larger molecule, there is often less elemental magnesium per capsule.
Although magnesium oxide is one of the least absorbed forms of magnesium, it is a small molecule that allows for high percentages of elemental magnesium per capsule. It is often mixed with other forms of magnesium to allow for higher elemental magnesium amounts per capsule.
Are there any side effects?
Magnesium is generally well tolerated when used in appropriate doses. The reacted Magnesium Citrate acts as an osmotic laxative pulling water into your intestines which softens and bulks your stool. At higher doses there is the potential to cause diarrhea. Chamomile (matricaria recutita) is a plant from the Asteracea family and is related to Ragweed. If you have hypersensitity to plants in these families, it can lead to allergic reactions.
