Magnesium Supplements

Magnesium Supplements

Magnesium is a nutrient (or mineral/element) essential in helping our bodies to function. 

Magnesium is part of more than 600 different enzyme processes in the body, many of which contribute to normal muscle function, nervous system function, and psychological functions. Magnesium is also important for the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.

Other potential benefits of magnesium have also been studied in a wide range of areas, including blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, sleep and migraines.

When taking magnesium supplements, a dose of 200mg-400mg is recommended per day, depending on your diet.

Magnesium supplements from Pharma Nord contain a complex of three different Magnesium compounds: acetate, hydroxide and carbonate. This ensures good bioavailability and is gentle on the gut.

Why Pharma Nord Magnesium Supplements?

  • Bio-Magnesium is manufactured to pharmaceutical standards
  • Each tablet contains 200 mg of pure magnesium
  • The magnesium tablets dissolve completely within a few minutes – even in people with a low acid content
  • Gluten Free / Lactose Free / Soy Free / Yeast Free / Sugar Free

Bio-Magnesium contains a complex of 3 forms of Magnesium giving greater bioavailability

Magnesium deficiency is very common. Magnesium can be excreted when we are stressed and eating a high caffeine, high sugar diet.

If you fidget, have restless legs, suffer from anxiety, have hypertension or palpitations, you could need more magnesium in your diet. Magnesium is believed to have an anti-hypertensive effect and may help with sleep patterns.

Magnesium levels in the body deplete following intense physical activity, or by drinking alcohol. Many individuals may not have an adequate intake of magnesium, because of their reliance on processed foods, which contain little magnesium.

Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral; although the human body contains a relatively small amount (approximately 25g, 60% of which is in the skeleton), magnesium plays a vital role in the normal functioning of the body.

Magnesium used in supplements may occur in several chemical forms; magnesium oxide is the least expensive but is poorly absorbed, magnesium hydroxide is the form most readily absorbed, whilst magnesium acetate and magnesium carbonate are least likely to cause digestive system upset.

We recommend 1 -2 magnesium tablets per day, or as directed by a physician.

Note: You do not have to take the magnesium tablets with meals. The magnesium tablets can dissolve quickly in a glass of water.

Our magnesium supplements are also suitable for vegans and vegetarians. 

People with renal disease should exercise caution if taking magnesium supplements.

Relative to the food we eat, the size of individual nutrients are actually incredibly small. As a result, we need to use units other than grammes (g) to describe them. Here's what the common units for nutrients are:

Grammes (G)- often used to describe nutritional powders. Most teaspoons of powder weigh approximately 5g.

Milligrams (Mg)- 1000mg is equal to 1g

Micrograms (Mcg or μg)- 1000μg is equal to 1mg

International Units (IU)- Slightly more complex than milligrams (mg) and micrograms (μg), International Units measure differently from nutrient to nutrient. The most common nutrients that are likely to be measured in IU are vitamins D, E and A.

  • Vitamin D: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.025 μg of D2 or D3
  • Vitamin A: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.3 mcg retinol
  • Beta-carotene (provitamin A): 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.6 μg of beta carotene
  • Vitamin E: 1 IU is the equivalent of 0.67 mg d-alpha-tocopherol

I love these, they have been the only thing to help ease my jumpy legs at night and also help me with my anxiety and feel I get a much better sleep. I love the quick delivery and service and can’t recommend these enough to everyone

The best on the market. I was recommended to use Pharmanords version and I have never looked back. Fantastic for sleep. I take them an hour before bed and they work wonders. The only side effect as such is that I'm that relaxed I have really vivid dreams.

It arrived in less than a week, really well presented.
I bought magnesium and it is as it is advertised, it dissolves in a glass of water itself.
It is a great product!

I take these every night before bed and I am much less anxious and sleep very well. A friend recommended them to me three years ago when I was going through an early menopause and I have taken them ever since as they help relax me. I notice the difference when I don't take them!

Iris Henderson - 22nd September 2015:

Since taking Bio-Magnesium I have noticed a huge difference in that I don't suffer from night cramps so much now. I use Pharma Nord capsules for a lot of things and am very pleased with them as I think they are the best quality health capsules I have ever used. Thank you again for your help in suggesting the Bio-Magnesium. In fact I am giving one of the boxes I bought to my daughter who, like me, suffers from cramp so thought they might help her.

I feel magnesium gives me a calming effect and helps with my sleep. This is also vital for my joints when training for the Great North Run.

It's not an exaggeration when I say Bio-Magnesium has changed my life. I suffered from Restless Leg Syndrome for years and tried many other magnesium products, as well as medical drugs. Only Bio-Magnesium has managed to ease this condition. I can finally sleep!
