Magnesium plays an essential role in over 300 enzyme reactions in the human body. All refined foods are lacking Ionic Magnesium, as well as most other essential minerals. Many Americans eat a highly refined diet and are, as a result, deficient in Magnesium.
Some important functions of Magnesium are:
- Regulates Calcium transport and deposition into bone
- Necessary for tissue growth and development
- Supports immune system health and function
- A primary electrolyte along with Calcium, Potassium, Sodium and Chloride
- Helps in the conduction of nerve impulses and the relaxation of muscle tissue
Calcium and Potassium stimulate muscle contraction - Magnesium makes muscles relax. This is very important for heart function as the body needs ample stores of Ionic Magnesium to allow for proper heart muscle relaxation.
While Magnesium deficiency is fairly common, it is frequently overlooked. The reason is that serum Magnesium levels (the test most doctors use) do not reflect actual body stores of Magnesium. Blood levels are kept within the normal range at the expense of other tissues.
Magnesium deficiency may occur because of:
- Excessive loss of Magnesium through urine or sweat
- Temporary gastrointestinal upsets, which can cause a loss of Magnesium or limit Magnesium absorption
- A chronically low intake of Magnesium
- Excessive stress, either physical, emotional, or environmental
Magnesium elimination is increased when using alcohol, caffeine, excessive sugar, diuretics, and birth control pills.
Supplementing with Ionic Magnesium can help to support:
- Healthy blood sugar levels
- Healthy blood pressure
- Protein synthesis
- The body to produce the antioxidant glutathione
Confusion, disorientation, loss of appetite, nervousness, irritability, muscle contractions and cramps, tingling, numbness, headaches, and nervous twitches and tics.

Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!

great for my heart and leg cramps
It is tasteless, really. Most would add to a bit of water. I put it under my tongue and wash it down with some water! This is a wonderful form of good magnesium. I started taking this in place of other forms, 5 years ago after a time at Hippocrates Health Institute.
I love all of the Eidon Minerals. I can tell a difference when I do not take them. I prefer the larger bottles but these (2oz bottles) are great for travel.
Used 3 bottles so far and it helps my heart rhythm to keep me out of afib. I will continue using. The best is liquid form because you put 30 drops in cool water or juice. I use half of each and I have swallowing issues with all pills, etc. and this really works.
As a person that runs a business at times it can be stressful. I find using this product helps greatly. I use it at night and I notice when it takes effect. Would recommend it to people that have stress in their lives.
Great way to get magnesium and it seems to be working!
I take it to help with night time restless legs. I am sleeping better.
Stopped my foot and leg cramps from first dsy
Excellent. With 30 drops I cure my nightly excruciating muscle cramps. Age is 75.
