Product Description

Biosphere Magnesium combines two types of magnesium to create the ideal dose with optimal absorption. The most bioavailable type of magnesium supplements are those that dissolve well into liquid, allowing the magnesium to be completely absorbed into the gut.

Magnesium Citrate has a great absorption rate and mixes well with water. Biosphere Nutrition have used a natural marine based magnesium citrate as one of the best forms for supplementation.

Magnesium Lyscinate Glycinate Chelate is a form of magnesium glycinate bound to the amino acid lysine which keeps the magnesium molecule stable in its journey to the gut for absorption. Formulated by Albion Minerals®, the gold standard in mineral production, their chelated forms of magnesium are designed to be the most bioavailable possible. Magnesium glycinate is extremely easy on the stomach and is a great form of magnesium for those people looking to rectify a deficiency.

Biosphere Nutrition has combined these two forms of magnesium to offer the best rates of absorption while also accommodating to those who are sensitive to magnesium citrate at high doses. By reducing the dose of citrate and including the magnesium lysinate glycinate chelate the Biosphere Magnesium supplement is great for everyone.

    Biosphere Magnesium is great, being a single serve and not having to swallow a pill worked for me, and meant was easier to remember and being able to mix with water meant was able to sip away throughout the day at my desk on this and a healthy way to keep up fluids while getting the Magnesium. Sleep improved some nights, and felt I was getting more energy.

    For someone who doesn’t normally like taking these type of things, I was pleasantly surprised how it made me feel and would be something I would continue to take to ensure I am on top of my game, and keep myself topped up and all the health benefits we hear about Magnesium and how much we require this for our bodies, for me this was a great way to take it :)Fast delivery and great communication too

    This is now my Holly Grail magnesium product.
    I love this product as it is so easy to use, cut the top off the sachet and mix it with water. I like it hot or cold….it tastes delicious and there are no nasty sweetners!
    I don’t have to worry about measuring the correct dose as that has already been done for me. I find it very gentle on the stomach, so no running to the toilet in the mornings!
    I take mine before bed and find it very beneficial for helping my body relax, unwind and quieten the mind ready for sleep.
    I have found that this formula is also fantastic for PMT and I like to take an extra sachet during the day to help me feel calm and relaxed, even my husband and kids have noticed a difference!
    It is great to find a fantastic formula here in NZ.
    GREAT SERVICE, Thank you!

    I found the Biosphere Magnesium single serve sachets very convenient to use and effective for recovery after workouts and also for assisting with sleep at night. The flavour was good and the powder mixed well with water. Also shared with my son who was having trouble sleeping and he has been pleasantly surprised with the results.

    I gave it to my partner for his restless leg syndrome. It really helped and made him feel instantly better because of its quick absorption due to being a powder rather than a tablet. I gave it 4 stars only because of the high price for one mineral. It would be nice to have other minerals in it also…such as calcium and selenium for example.

    I loved my free samples of Biosphere Magnesium. They were easy to take as they came in convenient single serve packets (I split the last packet in two).
    This particular magnesium was perfect for my chronic insomnia. I fell asleep quickly and slept all night long every night that I took it. Thank you Biosphere Magnesium for such a great product.

    Thankyou so much Biosphere for making Magnesium soooooooo easy to take in this pleasant tasting drink form. In comparison to taking a large not always easy to swallow tablet this is amazing and such a lovely citrus flavour. I was lucky enough to win a sample in your comp on f/book and have found these sachets a super efficient and convenient way to take this wonderful supplement. Magnesium is a mineral that we lack in our diet and since trying this powder form in water I absolutely recommend Biosphere Magnesium to all my friends and family…. it relaxes me as well as providing a more restful sleep….just wonderful! Thanks again for a super effective product Biosphere 🙂

    I suffer from fibromyalgia and have recently had chronic muscular back pain and fatigue. Started my biosphere magnesium a week ago and feel much more alert and my pain has reduced. I was pleasantly surprised by the nice flavor of it…usually they taste horrid but this is really easy to drink. Highly recommend this product!

    I got the opportunity to try biosphere magnesium for 10 days thanks. I have tried other brands but loved the flavour and how easy it is to mix and drink. I train a lot at the gym and run and I have had more energy and more relaxed at night sleeping. Would recommend them 100%

    Having suffered years of not falling asleep and then being underpar the following day, I have a large family and need all the energy I can muster. I tried Biosphere Magnesium by starting at night before bed, wow it has made such a difference to my sleep and hence ability to cope with the next day, I also suffer anxiety and use one through the day it helps me stay relaxed.
    I’m using this also for my son, so he can wind down before bed, brilliant, simply brilliant, and so easy to use, I want this for my whole family.

    Biosphere magnesium sachets are an easy way to get your daily requirement, my husband can’t swallow pills so it’s perfect for him! He usually adds it to his protein shake but it’s sweet lemon taste means he enjoys it on its own as well. We’re both sleeping better and find we have more energy during the day and we’ve only just started! We highly recommend them!

    I am really impressed with this product…the powder mixes well in water and is really pleasant tasting…love that I can mix it in my drink bottle and take it to work. I had the opportunity to trial this product (thanks :)) and my restless legs and cramp have all but gone. I also gave it to my 16yr old niece to try as she cramps at rowing training…and she really liked the product also. I 100% recommend this product as an effective and pleasant magnesium replacement.

    Highly Recommend. When I was told about this product – it sounded to good to be true. Wow I can’t speak highly enough of this product. The leg cramps no longer keep me awake or wake me up during the night and I have a very relaxed sleep. It is easy to take and the taste is great. I love that it is a sachet and not a pill to take dissolves really well. All measured out and I keep a couple in my bag in case I need a top up. I am just finishing my first month of Biosphere Magnesium and have just placed my next order. Great delivery service.

    I previously suffered from permanent fatigue, after speaking with a health professional I was given the recommendation to try magnesium. He said that it potentially could aid in giving me more energy throughout the day and to help with my sleeping. Admittedly I was somewhat sceptical as I had been taking multi vitamins and assumed that I would be getting everything that I needed from those. I was very wrong, one the second morning after starting this magnesium I woke up and felt completely different. I cant stress the contrast between my energy and mental clarity today compared with a month ago. I now sleep less each night and yet have more energy though out the day. I have recommended this product to several friends and much of my immediate family. This product should not be underestimated.

    I bought this to try and get rid of the incredibly annoying twitchy legs that plagued me in the middle of the night, especially bad after an exercise session. I am pleased to report that I will be continuing to purchase this as I am sleeping much better. I like the powder much more than swallowing pills.

    Just love taking my magnesium. I make it up every night and take it to work every day. I make up a 170ml water bottle and sip away all day. I find with the sachets are easy to carry round. For me it’s a great way of getting fluid into me as well. I love it better than the tablet.

    Biosphere Nutrition had a sponsored post come up in my Facebook newsfeed for the chance to win 10 free sachets so I clicked the link and was one of the lucky winners.
    Entering for a chance was the best thing I’ve done in a long time.
    Right from the first night I noticed a difference with my sleep, way easier to fall asleep and actually stay asleep, so I brought some more and the few nights I had to go without the miracle sachets my sleep went out the window so I won’t be making that mistake again.
    Been having the Magnesium for about six months and life is just so much better.
    YOU NEED THESE IN YOUR LIFE!!!!!

Magnesium Info
Magnesium Supplement Facts

About Magnesium

Magnesium is a mineral essential for optimal health, without it, we would not be able to produce energy, we could not control our blood cholesterol levels and our muscles would be in a permanent state of contraction. Magnesium is a macro-mineral which is required by our bodies in large amounts such as calcium, potassium, and sodium. It is needed in every cell of our body and plays a critical role in over 300 more chemical reactions in our bodies that keep us alive and functioning.

There are over 300 bodily processes that we can’t execute properly and to full effect if we are deficient in magnesium. It is so important that the average body holds around 25 grams of it through bones and muscles, making it the second most abundant element in human cells. Magnesium is commonly tied up within mineral deposits in rock formations near salt water. The most plentiful source is the sea.

Drinking Magnesium

The Biosphere Difference

Biosphere Magnesium combines two types of magnesium to create the ideal dose with optimal absorption. The most bioavailable types are those that dissolve well into liquid, allowing the magnesium to be completely absorbed into the gut.3

Magnesium Citrate has a great absorption rate and mixes well with water.4 Biosphere Nutrition have used a natural marine based magnesium citrate as one of the best forms for supplementation.

Magnesium Lyscinate Glycinate Chelate is a form of magnesium glycinate bound to the amino acid lysine which keeps the magnesium molecule stable in its journey to the gut for absorption. Formulated by Albion Minerals®, the gold standard in mineral production, their chelated forms of magnesium are designed to be the most bioavailable possible. Magnesium glycinate is extremely easy on the stomach and is a great form for those people looking to rectify a deficiency.

Biosphere Nutrition has combined these two forms of magnesium to offer the best rates of absorption while also accommodating to those who are sensitive to magnesium citrate at high doses. By reducing the dose of citrate and including the lysinate glycinate chelate the Biosphere Magnesium supplement is great for everyone.

Benefits of Magnesium

Magnesium Benefits

As a key element in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, adequate levels of magnesium result in numerous health benefits. Primarily acting as a supporting mineral, the availability of magnesium is essential for optimal health.

One of the most important roles magnesium plays is that of helping to create energy for our cells. The mitochondria inside our cells need it to create energy for in the form of ATP or adenosine triphosphate to keep us alive and functioning. Without magnesium, the nutrients we absorb could not be metabolised into usable forms of energy. Our cells then use ATP to as their fuel source or energy to carry out other function such as:

  • Cell reproduction
  • Protein synthesis
  • Muscle fibre contractions
  • Transportation of calcium and potassium across cell membranes (vital for a regular heart beat)

Magnesium benefits have become known and understood far better over the last few years recommendations should be doubled. Researchers suggest current daily recommendations should be doubled as magnesium is now considered to be a key to overall wellness.

Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms

Magnesium Deficiency

Magnesium is constantly being used by over 300 bodily processes, helping us functioning as we should. Even a slight deficiency can significantly impact our health and day to day performance. Unfortunately a magnesium deficiency is very hard to diagnose without a blood test as it can present itself in so many forms.

A leading driver of deficiency may be stress, as our bodies use up magnesium in stressful times to help our bodies cope. Lower levels of magnesium tend to make stressful situations harder to deal with, creating a difficult stressful cycle.5

The World Health Organisation have published reports that estimate around 75% of Americans do not meet the recommended daily intake of magnesium which sits at 320-420mg per day. However, according to experts this currently recommended daily intake is inadequate to prevent magnesium deficiency and is nowhere near the optimal daily intake which sits around 500mg for females and 750mg for males. This realisation would push true deficiency rates in the US towards 90%.6

In the year 1900 the average magnesium intake was 500mg per day and now it is around 200mg per day.7 This huge reduction in magnesium levels is largely due to the modern day diet of processed foods, the slow depletion of minerals from our soil, and the stressful lives we live.

Magnesium Rich Foods

10 great sources of Natural Magnesium

Magnesium is found in many vegetables, especially leafy greens, as well as in nuts, seeds and legumes. Foods with plenty of fibre are usually high in magnesium.8

Always try get as many vitamins and minerals from a healthy balanced diet. The magnesium in food is often absorbed far better than supplements so a small amount may go a long way. Unfortunately with the lowering levels of magnesium in our food, even a diet filled with these foods might not be enough for a stressed person, which is where a supplement would be necessary.

One must also be aware that when we cook our food, the chemical structure changes, and more often than note there is a decrease in vitamins and minerals. For example, when kale and spinach are boiled for 2 minutes, there is a reduction in magnesium of around 25%.

The optimal daily dose of magnesium is between 500 – 750mg per day depending on size and gender.

Other notable magnesium-rich foods include:

  • Kale
  • Chard
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Brazil Nuts
  • Figs
  • Flax seeds
  • Almonds
  • Wild Salmon
  • Black Beans
  • Kidney Beans
Foods with Magnesium

Magnesium Supplements

Which form of Magnesium is best and how much should I take?

There are many popular forms of magnesium supplements out there. However, some are much better than others.

Absorption rates between different types of magnesium vary between 4% and 60% which is why it is always important to check which form is being used.
The recommended daily intake of magnesium for adult males is 420mg, but the optimal daily intake for adult males is around 750mg.9

Most people will not be getting anywhere these levels in their diet that is where a quality magnesium supplement can be beneficial.

Types of Magnesium you may find in supplements include:

  • Citrate
  • Glycinate
  • Orotate
  • Theronate
  • Taurate
  • Acetate
  • Malate
  • Carbonate
  • Chloride
  • Hydroxide
  • Lactate
  • Phosphate
  • Gluconate
  • Sulfate
  • Aspartate
  • Oxide

Magnesium Chelates – These are forms of magnesium that are chemically bound to another molecule that make the magnesium more likely to survive the trip from the stomach to the small intestine. Magnesium chelates have the potential to offer far greater absorption rates with the right molecules. With so many forms of magnesium supplements out there it can be hard to know which one is best for you.10

Recommendations:

Magnesium citrate offers one of the best absorption rates and is reasonably priced. It consists of magnesium bound with citric acid making it water soluble and very well absorbed. It is one of the most popular forms of magnesium for supplementation in top quality products, however it can cause an upset stomach at high for some people.

Magnesium Glycinate is magnesium bound with the amino acid glycine, an exceptionally bioavailable form of magnesium. This type of magnesium is popular as it is less likely to cause a laxative effect while still being well absorbed.11

Avoid the poorly absorbed magnesium supplements such as oxide, gluconate, sulphate and carbonate.

Magnesium oxide tends to have high levels of elemental magnesium, but its absorption or bioavailability is extremely low around 4%.12

Magnesium aspartate should also be avoided as its bioavailability is low and it breaks down into a neurotoxin.13

In most cases, magnesium is a very safe mineral to take as our body stores it and uses it on a regular basis. In excess amounts, magnesium side effects may include an upset stomach, dizziness, loose stools, or diarrhoea. If small amounts of magnesium cause you an upset stomach, switch to magnesium glycinate as it is easy on the stomach and well absorbed.

The recommended daily intake of magnesium for adult males is 420mg, but the optimal daily intake for adult males is around 750mg and 500mg for females.

For people looking to reverse a magnesium deficiency, look to take a large magnesium dose twice a day to prevent an upset stomach
