Magnesium - 100% Natural - 180 capsules
Magnesium Oxide Monohydrate is a potent, pure and natural form of magnesium extracted from the Dead Sea. Compared to most commonly available magnesium forms, this form of magnesium has particularly good absorption. For example, it is absorbed by cells 2.7 times better than magnesium citrate.
While ordinary magnesium oxide does not always have a positive reputation, Magnesium Oxide Monohydrate is of an entirely different category. In fact, this special form of magnesium oxide contains a water molecule as part of its molecular structure. This is crucial to magnesium's effectiveness, since magnesium is a hydrophilic element. This means that it can only work if there is enough water in the environment. The addition of an H2O (water) molecule ensures and optimizes this critical factor at the molecular level, significantly increasing the bioavailability of Magnesium Oxide Monohydrate.
Obviously, most magnesium supplements are not really unique in terms of composition and ingredients. At Paleo Powders, we approach this differently. We combine two natural and complementary forms of magnesium with two natural multinutrient complexes that contain supporting nutritional factors. In this way, we offer a unique and highly effective magnesium supplement.
So if you're looking for a good, natural magnesium supplement that stands out from standard products, look no further. Paleo Powders' magnesium capsules contain high-quality ingredients and a thoughtful formulation that contribute to optimal absorption and utilization of this important mineral.

Magnesium is an essential mineral with a crucial role in human biochemistry and overall health. Magnesium, for example, is responsible for the activity of thousands of enzymes. This affects about 80% of metabolism! Despite this, magnesium is perhaps the least understood and valued mineral. Today's life, type of diet and food processing are examples of factors that come into play when considering magnesium as a dietary supplement. [R]evolutionary magnesium from Paleo Powders delivers natural magnesium with an evolutionary perspective in a revolutionary nutrient-rich formulation.
To take full advantage of a magnesium supplement, it is important for the maker to be knowledgeable. For example, there are many misconceptions about magnesium that stem from ignoring important factors. For example, the type of magnesium used, absorption profiles and balance with other minerals. This is also why we think the standard approach of 100 to 400 mg of magnesium chelate in a capsule, tablet or dosage is not the best. An optimal product requires a deeper understanding beyond the current standard. In the end, nature knows best!
- A good guideline for daily magnesium intake for adults is between 320 mg and 420 mg per day (13-17 mmol/day). This requires an intake of 3.6mg of magnesium per kilogram of body weight per day to maintain magnesium balance under normal physiological conditions.
- Foods high in magnesium do not contain a particularly high percentage of the recommended daily allowance. For example, you can think of leafy vegetables (78 mg/portion), nuts (80 mg/portion), chicken (41 mg/portion) and Atlantic Mackerel (82 mg/portion).
- In addition, many fruits and vegetables have lost large amounts of minerals and nutrients over the past 100 years.
- Cooking vegetables can also cause an additional loss of up to 80% in magnesium content. Magnesium in drinking water contributes about 10% of daily intake.
- However, the increased use of softened/purified tap water has severely affected water as a source of magnesium.
Once magnesium is absorbed, it is distributed throughout the body for use and storage. Once in the blood, magnesium finds its way into muscle (27%) and bone (53%) as well as a variety of other tissues (19%). As much as 99% of magnesium is found intracellularly in cells and only 1% in the extracellular space. Thus, almost every cell uses magnesium.
Blood and tissue magnesium are in a constant state of exchange. Kidneys can filter up to 2400 mg of magnesium per day and excrete between 5% and 70% of that magnesium, depending on multiple variables such as stress, performance and general health.
Only 0.8% magnesium is found in the blood, 0.3% in serum and 0.5% in erythrocytes. Up to one-third of the magnesium stored in the boats is exchangeable with magnesium in the blood. Although the total amount of magnesium stored in bone may change with age, bone remains the major area of stored and exchangeable magnesium.
Did you know.
- Magnesium plays a central role in activating over 3,751 proteins affecting thousands of enzyme systems. This exceeds the often cited number of "300" in online sources.
- Treatment of drinking water and food processing reduce naturally occurring magnesium from our diet. Meanwhile, modern lifestyles cause our bodies to use up the magnesium we have in us faster.
- Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, after calcium, potassium and sodium.
- Magnesium cation is the second most abundant mineral in the cell. It can regulate several other cations, including sodium, potassium and calcium.
- Mitochondria concentrate magnesium ions.
- Magnesium appears to be a central regulator of mitochondrial function and metabolism.
- Magnesium also plays a role in making new proteins from amino acids and making and repairing DNA and RNA.
- With a concentration of 0.13 percent, magnesium is the third most abundant mineral in seawater; the human body contains about 4-6 teaspoons of magnesium.
Magnesium oxide monohydrate
As mentioned earlier, Magnesium Oxide Monohydrate is natural form of magnesium extracted from the Dead Sea. Because it contains a water molecule, it creates a hydrated form of magnesium. This form of magnesium has particularly good absorption compared to most commonly available magnesium forms. For example, it is absorbed by cells 2.7 times better than magnesium citrate.
Ordinary magnesium oxide does not have a very good reputation, but so this monohydrate form is not the same because it contains an extra water molecule! Magnesium is a hydrophilic element. This means that it can only work if there is enough water in the environment. The addition of an H2O (water) molecule guarantees and optimizes this critical factor at the molecular level! Therefore, due to its high dissolution rate and superior absorption in the body, its bioavailability is very high.
Wild sea lettuce (Ulva lactuca) magnesium is a natural source of magnesium but different from Magnesium Oxide Monohydrate. This whole-food magnesium complex, with the natural magnesium organically bound in the algal cell structures, provides not only a high natural concentration of magnesium but also the entire essence of the plant with supporting substances.
Wild sea lettuce is organically and sustainably harvested off the French and Argentine coasts. The essence of this seaweed is fully preserved because the processing is done in a gentle and sophisticated way. This of course so that it can nourish your body in the best possible way.
By providing natural magnesium in an evolutionary whole-food form, the body is not overwhelmed by a high dose of magnesium. The body processes magnesium from food sources differently. This makes it a superior choice, in our (r)evolutionary perspective.
Difference in uptake
Magnesium oxide monohydrate and wild sea lettuce magnesium are two highly bioavailable forms of magnesium, but have different absorption rates. Magnesium oxide monohydrate is absorbed very quickly, while magnesium from wild sea lettuce has a slower absorption rate. This is because the magnesium must first be released from the plant structures.
It is important to note that magnesium, unlike other minerals, can be absorbed along the entire length of the gastrointestinal tract. Utilizing this physiological advantage with a two-step approach optimizes the of absorption of magnesium it because not all magnesium is absorbed at the same rate.
Marine phytoplankton have shaped life on Earth throughout its extensive evolutionary history. It is estimated that phytoplankton account for more than 45% of Earth's net primary photosynthesis production. Phytoplankton are thus at the foundation of ocean food ecosystems and have a huge impact on the entire global biosystem.
Phytoplankton are not ocean plants but single-celled aquatic organisms found in both salt and freshwater environments. The history of plankton goes back more than 3 billion years and is basis for all life on earth. How paleo do you want it! These microorganisms are responsible for creating Earth's atmosphere, and allowing the first life forms to flourish.
Phytoplankton is an incredible matrix of nutrients that contains not only a broad spectrum of (trace) minerals, but also phospholipids Omega 3s, all essential amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants, special fatty acids, phospholipids and more.
The 100% Dutch-produced marine phytoplankton (Nannochloropsis gaditana) we use is produced at a pristine location on the shores of the largest protected nature reserve in the Netherlands. The phytoplankton is grown in ancient seawater (130,000 years old) deep below the surface that is free of contaminants and heavy metals.
The Korean bamboo salt we use is produced entirely by hand using traditional methods, no mass production techniques are involved. Therefore, it takes more than 3 years to make purple bamboo sweet. This is done each time according to a meticulous and special protocol. The sea salt is dried in the sun, put into bamboo that is at least 3 years old and covered with mineral-rich clay. The bamboo "pots" are then placed in a pine wood furnace where the salt melts into a lava at 2500°C. All these steps are repeated 9 times. The "lava" of salt created by the high temperatures creates smaller molecules, which are more easily absorbed by the body. The process also removes unwanted elements. Together the high temperatures cause activated carbon and sulfur from the bamboo to turn the salt purple.
Bamboo salt is one of the most well-known traditional medical treatments in Korea and other Asian countries. Bamboo salt contains more than 70 essential minerals, trace elements and micronutrients.
Bamboo salt is concentrated and has a very small molecular size of only 1/100th of ordinary salt molecules (300-600 Angström). This allows it to move freely between cell membranes. A normal salt molecule is quite large and therefore stays in the bloodstream and pulls water out of cells. Bamboo salt, however, is easily absorbed and excreted because of its small molecular size.
The unique alchemy created during melting also changes the structures of the molecules into high-energy structures. This makes it more active in physical reactions and thus even more powerful. The energy of bamboo, pine, clean red clay and fire penetrates the salt, maximizing the absorption of trace elements and increasing the redox potential.
Bamboo salt has a higher reduction potential because it contains more OH groups than other salts. The reduction peak of bamboo salt is about three times wider than that of solar salt in terms of redox potential amperometry (number of ions). Bamboo salt has alkaline properties, more OH groups and higher antioxidant activity. So, a little goes a long way!
Bamboo salt is a unique natural multimineral complex because of its broad-spectrum macromineral and micromineral content. 9 X Purple Bamboo Salt is a very different product from regular sea salt. Not only because of its small molecular size and high energy structure but also because the content of (trace) minerals has been changed. For example, increased zinc, potassium and manganese concentrations.
The body a system of systems and nothing in the body works by itself. Therefore, we believe that taking high doses of just magnesium does not make sense and is potentially unwise. After all, our macrominerals and trace minerals need to be in balance. When taking dietary supplements, it is important to maintain this balance in the body. Nature, by definition, provides this balance. For this reason, marine phytoplankton and 9X purple bamboo salt are valuable additions to our two natural forms of magnesium.
The importance of mineral balance has long been known but is being reaffirmed by the new multidisciplinary science of ionology. This is the study of the complete set of mineral nutrients and trace elements in an organism. It uses advanced techniques to investigate the composition and distribution of all minerals and trace elements in a living organism and their variations under various physiological and pathological conditions. It also studies the molecular mechanisms underlying the metabolism, homeostasis and interaction of these elements. The totality of all mineral nutrients and trace elements found in an organism is called the ionome.
We have applied this knowledge in our formulation with hundreds of supplemental nutrients from natural sources, including many special, and of course a broad spectrum of magnesium-supporting and balancing (trace) minerals. As with the dual-step absorption magnesium, we also applied this property to the nutrient complexes in which 9X bamboo salt is absorbed faster, and the marine phytoplankton slower because the nutrients must first be released from the phytoplankton cells.
By combining two different natural forms of magnesium with complementary absorption rates and also adding a fascinating mix of nutrients, we have formulated a super magnesium product. It is suitable for individuals looking for a higher therapeutic dose, as well as for individuals looking to supplement their daily diet just that little bit extra.
Low-dose magnesium per capsule
Because minerals are better absorbed in smaller doses taken throughout the day, and to avoid overwhelming body systems or molecular pathways that use magnesium (think mitochondria), we do not use the high magnesium amounts per capsule commonly used elsewhere.
We chose a lower dose of 50 mg elemental magnesium per capsule. This way it is easier to spread magnesium throughout the day and get the most out of this product. If dosing during the day is impractical or impossible, you can also simply take two or three capsules at a time. Lower dosages and the smaller capsule size also make this product more suitable for persons of smaller stature and children.
Per capsule: 50 mg elemental Magnesium (from 25 mg Magnesium Oxide Monohydrate, 100 mg wild sea lettuce (Ulva Lactuca)), 50 mg Natural Nutrient Complex, (9x Purple Bamboo Salt, Phytoplankton (sea))
Other ingredients: Cellulose (filler, Cellulose (capsule)
