What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is the eighth-most abundant mineral in the Earth’s crust and is, chemically, ⅓ less dense than aluminium. The mineral plays an essential role in all living things as one atom of Magnesium is present in the very centre of every chlorophyll molecule, the molecule that allows plants to photosynthesise and convert sunlight into energy. Joseph Black was the first to identify Magnesium as an element in 1755, distinguishing magnesia from lime (magnesium oxide from calcium oxide), and Humphry Davy first isolated the metal in 1808. Magnesium naturally occurs in green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and kale, as well as nuts, brown rice, whole grain bread, fish and meat.
Benefits of Magnesium
Magnesium is one of the body’s electrolytes, contributing to the electrolyte balance. In addition, the mineral contributes to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue by aiding normal energy metabolism. Magnesium also benefits the normal function of the psychological and nervous system, plays a role in cell division and protein synthesis, and helps to maintain normal bones.
Our Magnesium Powder
Magnesium comes in a variety of forms. Oxford Vitality provides Magnesium Citrate in powdered form, for ease of use and versatility. We recommend adding our Magnesium Powder to a smoothie or shake for a nutritious boost, such as during breakfast or before a workout.
Please be aware that this product does not include a scoop and this supplement requires the use of 0.00g scales which are able to measure milligrams, for complete accuracy.
I have bought about six different products from Oxford Vitality, and would usually give five stars, but I’m not so keen on the magnesium powder. It is so difficult to dissolve and therefore I feel like I’m swallowing sand. I don’t want to give a low rating though as maybe I’m doing something wrong and on the whole I really like this company. I won’t however buy the magnesium again.
Fantastic pity it has no measure, but otherwise good
Too soon to see a difference but I’m confident. My only difficulty is measuring 850mg. It would be great to have a small measuring spoon in the pack.
Effective but gritty
