THE POWER OF MAGNESIUM

Simply put, few other nutrients play as pivotal a role in helping to keep your body and mind healthy and functioning at peak performance.

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:

  • The modern diet is generally low in magnesium-rich foods like milk, oatmeal, broccoli, nuts, and seeds.
  • Our soil is depleted, so leafy greens and other wholesome foods no longer contain the amount of this mineral that these foods once supplied.
  • Certain medical conditions (including diabetes and celiac disease) and commonly prescribed medications (including proton pump inhibitors, or PPIs) interfere with the body’s absorption of magnesium.

What can magnesium do for you?

This superhero supplement is an essential part of overall wellness and can be especially helpful when it comes to many common health concerns:

  • It can help regulate your body’s response to stress and can help promote a sense of calm and well-being.
  • It can help regulate the sleep hormones that keep you dozing all night long and help you wake up rested.
  • It has been linked to improvements in muscle strength and power.
  • It has been shown to help maintain a healthy heart, and can help maintain blood sugar levels that are already within the normal range.
  • It has been shown to help relieve common PMS symptoms.

What’s the best way to get magnesium?

Your body doesn’t make magnesium on its own, so the more foods you eat with magnesium, the better. But for most people, that’s not enough. A supplement can help you reach — and maintain — optimal magnesium levels for good health.

Magnesium has spent too long as an under-the-radar health hero. It’s time to make it work for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much magnesium should I be getting daily?

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.

Can I get enough magnesium through food alone?

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.

How do I prepare OMG! Nutrition Ready to Mix packets?

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!

Can I prepare my beverage in advance and not drink it until later?

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.

Is OMG! non-buffered?

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.

Why is there sugar in the Quick Melt?

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.

Why does Quick Melt have a lower dose of magnesium?

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.

How many mg of elemental magnesium are there per serving in your products?

There are 200 mg of elemental magnesium per serving in the Ready to Mix, and 40 mg of elemental magnesium per serving in the Quick Melt.
