Which magnesium supplement is right for me?
Biolectra® Magnesium offers supplements for every target group: individuals young and old, athletes or pregnant women. With different amounts of magnesium and a range of dosage forms, there is something for everyone. If you are uncertain which supplement is right for you, let it be said that you generally can’t make a mistake when selecting a dosage form. Nevertheless, the various products are tailored to meet different needs, situations and preferences. Before making a purchase, therefore, you should decide which dose is right for you and which supplementation form you would find most acceptable. The pharmacy is a good place to ask for advice.
Which dosage is right for me?
When selecting the correct dosage, it should be noted that the daily requirement for magnesium is 300 mg for women aged 25 and older and 350 mg for men 25 and older.*
However, there are some life circumstances in which a higher, supplementary magnesium intake should be considered. Athletes and nursing mothers, for instance, have naturally higher magnesium requirements. Illnesses such as diabetes can also result in a higher requirement for this mineral nutrient. Frequent muscle cramps can indicate a higher magnesium requirement and an insufficient supply of magnesium. In these situations it is wise to consider a high-dose magnesium supplement.
For individuals who have been shown to have a magnesium deficiency, it can be useful to take a higher dose of magnesium (400 mg) in the initial stage of treatment until the magnesium store has been replenished. This can take several weeks. Once the body’s magnesium balance has been restored, it is sufficient to orient your intake with the daily allowance for adults of 300 to 400 mg recommended by the German Nutrition Association.
If you want to ensure that you are meeting your normal magnesium requirement but are not certain if your diet is sufficient, adding a low-dose magnesium supplement (150 mg) can be appropriate.
Which dosage form is right for me?
The diverse range of Biolectra® Magnesium supplements can be dissolved in water or can be taken without additional liquid.
Those who drink too little water to begin with can increase their liquid intake by using soluble Biolectra® supplements such as effervescent tablets or drinking granules. The pleasant orange or lemon flavor turns taking magnesium into a pleasure.
On the other hand, individuals who like to have their magnesium with them on the go or while working out will find Biolectra® Magnesium Direct more suitable. The practical Direct Sticks provide magnesium without additional liquid. This means not having to carry additional liquids while traveling, for instance.
Those who prefer taking magnesium once a day in concentrated form and who don’t care for the Direct Sticks or effervescent tablets can choose the magnesium capsules from Biolectra®. These are taken with liquid and swallowed once a day.
The product spectrum from Biolectra® offers high quality magnesium to meet every need in the appropriate dose and dosage form. Find the magnesium supplement that suits you best.
