Why is magnesium the hero in this story?
Magnesium assists in muscle function, the immune system, and heart and bone health—to name just a few benefits.*
Until recently, most people were able to get the right amount of magnesium in their diet without thinking too much about it. But a few environmental and lifestyle hurdles are making that harder today. In fact, a majority of us aren't getting enough magnesium on a regular basis. Here’s why:

This superhero supplement is an essential part of overall wellness and can be especially helpful when it comes to many common health concerns:
Frequently Asked Questions
The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) or daily intake level for adult males is 400-420 mg; for adult females, 310-320 mg; for pregnant females, 350-360 mg; and for breastfeeding females, 310-320 mg. This includes the magnesium you get from both food and supplements.
Eating magnesium-rich foods like leafy green vegetables and whole grains is a great start. Unfortunately, the majority of dietary magnesium sources supply less than 20% of the recommended daily amounts. Plus, food production methods, soil quality, and especially eating patterns make it difficult to hit targets — which is why many Americans may fall short. Taking a high-quality magnesium supplement like OMG! Nutrition can help you fill the gap.
We recommend mixing a packet with 8-10 ounces of cold water, or to taste, but you can also try it with your favorite juice or other beverage. Some people even stir it into yogurt, oatmeal, or add it to their morning smoothies. We encourage you to get creative!
We recommend drinking your OMG! Nutrition Ready to Mix drink right after you prepare it. However, if you prefer to prepare the product in advance, go right ahead! Just be sure to drink it within 24 hours and stir or shake out any clumps that may have settled.
Some magnesium brands buffer their formulas with magnesium oxide (or other poorly absorbable forms of the mineral) in order to “boost” the overall elemental value. This results in a lower level of bioavailability (and possibly, a laxative effect!) even though the elemental milligram count may be higher. Our products are non-buffered, which means we haven’t added extra elemental magnesium to boost our total value — to ensure optimal bioavailability.
We want everyone to experience the total-body benefits of magnesium, so we created two great-tasting, no-hassle products to help make it easy and accessible for people to take magnesium. The Quick Melt technology requires added sugar — but we're actively looking at ways to lower the amount of sugar in this product.
Already getting some magnesium? Our 40 mg packets let you take precisely the portion that’s best for your body.* They’re also great for travel days, since you don’t need to add water.
