What Are the Benefits of Magnesium Citrate

Magnesium citrate is an excellent choice for those seeking to boost their magnesium levels. Citric acid is known to increase the absorption of minerals like magneisum in the gut, resulting in higher bioavailability compared to other magnesium types.

The higher the bioavailability, the more magnesium your body can use from your supplement, and the greater the benefits.

As per EFSA-approved health claims, magnesium contributes to:

  • Reduction of Tiredness & Fatigue - Magnesium plays a vital role in supporting electrolyte balance and normal energy-yielding metabolism to help reduce tiredness and fatigue.
  • Normal Nervous System & Psychological Function: Magnesium supports the normal functioning of the nervous system and promotes healthy psychological function, helping to maintain a balanced and calm state of mind.
  • Normal Muscle Function (Including Heart) - Magnesium is essential for muscle contraction and relaxation, including heart muscle, thus contributing to normal muscle function throughout the body.
  • Maintenance of Bones & Teeth - Magnesium supports the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, ensuring that your skeletal system remains strong and resilient.
  • Protein Synthesis & Cell Division - Magnesium contributes to normal protein synthesis and also has a role in the process of cell division, supporting tissue growth and repair throughout the body.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is magnesium citrate?

Magnesium citrate is a supplement made up of magnesium and citric acid.

Magnesium is one of the 21 essential minerals your body needs for optimal health and is involved in more than 300 processes in the body, many of them critical for survival.

Magnesium is also an electrolyte, or an electrically charged molecule, and helps to power your body’s “electrical circuit”. Your brain, heart, nerves and muscles all depend on this electrical circuit (and magnesium) to function properly, making magnesium one of the most important minerals for overall good health.

Citric acid is an organic acid that occurs naturally in citrus fruits, such as lemons and limes. As we’ll discuss in this article, citric acid is a key part of the process the body uses to create energy, making it critical for the survival of every single cell in your body.
