Our uncompromising quality standards guarantee magnesium preparations which are well tolerated by the body and highly bioavailable.

What does magnesium do in the body?

Magnesium is a multi-faceted mineral that plays a role in countless metabolic functions. It is particularly important for maintaining energy balance, supporting muscle and nerve function as well as for the mind and the maintenance of strong bones and teeth.

Magnesium as a dietary supplement

Dosage forms: Tablets, capsules, powder, drops, etc.

Magnesium is available in a variety of different dosage forms. Products that are manufactured according to the pure substance principle (mostly capsule products) are particularly well tolerated. This is because these are the only products that guarantee that unnecessary additives and adjuvants have been omitted from the magnesium preparation. This "less-is-more principle" also benefits the bioavailability (= absorption capacity) of the mineral, because additives can hinder the absorption of magnesium.

What is the best way to absorb magnesium?

Since magnesium can interact with other food components, the mineral should ideally be taken outside of mealtimes.

What magnesium compounds exist?

Major organic magnesium compounds include:

  • Magnesium citrate
  • Magnesium malate
  • Magnesium gluconate
  • Magnesium glycerophosphate
  • Magnesium bis-glycinate

Major inorganic magnesium compounds include:

  • Magnesium oxide
  • Magnesium carbonate
  • Magnesium chloride

Which type of magnesium is best?

When it comes to the question of which magnesium compound is the best, there is no simple answer. The "perfect magnesium" will be different for everybody, depending on their individual needs. For example, magnesium bis-glycinate, which is particularly well tolerated, is ideal for people with sensitive digestion, while magnesium citrate provides a good supply of magnesium even with low stomach acid. For athletes, on the other hand, it can be beneficial to take magnesium together with its physiological partner potassium.

Experienced magnesium experts, like those in the BIOGENA product development team, are able to skilfully exploit the characteristic properties of different types of magnesium. Through clever selection with much sensitivity and scientific know-how, they put together unique magnesium mixtures that deliver magnesium in its best possible form.

For example, 7 Salt Magnesium the bestselling BIOGENA magnesium preparation, provides seven different magnesium compounds that have been carefully matched to provide the perfect mixture of differently soluble and magnesium-rich compounds in one capsule. This ensures a good magnesium supply - whatever the pH situation in the gastrointestinal tract.

Magnesium - Dosage

Ideally, you should consult a doctor to obtain an adequate magnesium dosage, individually tailored to your needs. Your local GP can identify your individual status by means of a special laboratory diagnostic analysis and determine your magnesium dosage based on this.

Which magnesium to buy?

Which BIOGENA magnesium preparation is right for you will depend on your individual needs. For example, BIOGENA 7 Salt Magnesium is recommended for older people, as this product provides a good magnesium supply, regardless of the pH value situation in the digestive tract. For people with sensitive digestion, magnesium bisglycinate 125 may be the best choice, as this magnesium compound is considered particularly gentle and well tolerated. Athletes, on the other hand, can benefit from an optimally coordinated combination of the two physiological team players potassium and magnesium with Potassium & Magnesium Citrate or Potassium & Magnesium GL 2000.

Frequently Asked Questions

Magnesium tablets are generally less recommended, because they usually contain additives that are necessary to stabilise the shape of the tablet.

Magnesium bisglycinate is a particularly well-tolerated type of magnesium. Experience has shown that the risk of digestive problems is particularly low with this compound.

Soft stools can occur if too much magnesium is taken at once or if the composition of the magnesium preparation is less than ideal. In this case, try to spread out the magnesium over the course of the day and then slowly increase the dosage again until you reach the desired dosage.

Magnesium is a very reactive element that is always bound to a bonding partner in its natural form. If, on the other hand, the magnesium is not bound, it is referred to as "elemental magnesium".

The active ingredient factor indicates the percentage of elemental magnesium contained in a magnesium compound. The BIOGENA product development team always selects high-quality magnesium compounds with a high active ingredient factor.
