Magnesium is one of the essential nutrients involved in many of the body’s functions: getting enough of this mineral is vital for maintaining good health. Even though this mineral is of vast importance, a large subset of the population suffers from a magnesium deficiency. If you’d like to know why magnesium is so crucial to your health and how Nutrivian Magnesium Citrate can help you, please consult the information we have provided below.
Magnesium is found in vegetables and fruit, both of which absorb this mineral from the soil in which they grow. Given the fact that most soil is treated with artificial fertiliser these days, many fruits and vegetables aren’t as high in magnesium as they used to be. Moreover, many crops are also grown on rockwool: this has also resulted in lower levels of magnesium. Additionally, the volume of dairy consumed per capita in the Netherlands is among the highest in the world. As the ratio between magnesium and calcium intake must be balanced, and most people consume an excess of calcium but not nearly enough magnesium, it is not difficult to see why many now have a magnesium deficiency.
Acidification of the Body
Consuming too little magnesium, as well as poor dietary habits, may result in higher levels of acidity in the body. Alcohol, sugar, sweets, cake, fast food, fat, dairy, soda, and flour-based products have also been shown to contribute to this process of acidification. In order to restore a healthy PH balance, the body uses more magnesium, which in turn results in a pernicious deficiency. Mental and physical stress, too much exercise, high pressure at work, relationship issues, and the overwhelming demands of modern society may also contribute to the development of a magnesium deficiency.

Nutrivian Magnesium Citrate
Even with a proper diet, it remains difficult to consume enough magnesium: this is where supplements come in. Be aware, though, that there are many inferior, cheap supplements (such as magnesium oxide or magnesium carbonate) on the market that are not at all easily absorbed by the body. Nutrivian Magnesium Citrate, however, is effortlessly absorbed by the body and contains 200mg of elemental magnesium.
We recommend taking 1 to 2 tablets a day, preferably during or after a meal.
