Mega-Mag liquid magnesium is a rich, natural source of concentrated magnesium ions with other minerals and trace elements that act as natural co-factors.
Magnesium is essential to over 400 different enzyme reactions and various other body functions. Magnesium ions (charged magnesium atoms) play a key role in nerve conduction, muscle contraction, bone and tooth formation, protein metabolism and are particularly important to heart and circulatory health. Research has shown many American diets to be deficient in magnesium.
1/4 to 0.8 teaspoon (1 to 4 ml) daily with juice or food to mask the highly concentrated mineral flavor. To top off or fully supplement your diet with magnesium, we recommend starting with 1/4 teaspoon and increasing as needed, ideally spread throughout the day. We also recommend taking Mega-Mag with a large glass of fluid. Excess magnesium may cause a laxative effect.
A high magnesium, low sodium concentrate from Utah's Inland Sea, the Great Salt Lake. Contains no added ingredients.
Allergen Info: contains no known allergens.
Contains over 72 ionic trace minerals from seawater. ConcenTrace is a trade name for concentrated sea minerals from the Great Salt Lake.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I like the form of magnesium in this product - Magnesium Chloride. I find that it absorbs better than others. I also find that it makes water taste better and softer to me. This is a very good thing because I often don't drink enough water. Most people seem to hate the taste of this stuff but that's not the case for me, as long as it is taken in a glass of water. After using this product for awhile, I read that that the Great Salt Lake (where this is sourced) has one of the highest levels of mercury of any body of water in the world. I then came across a YouTube video by alternative health author John Heinerman showing the actual location where Trace Minerals Research source their products from. It was not a pretty picture - quite shocking actually. The YouTube videos are "Trace Minerals Truth Revealed" and "Trace Minerals Truth Revealed Part II" if you want to have a look. I was very disappointed because I really liked this stuff. It simply isn't worth it to me to risk ingesting mercury so I have stopped using it. I am providing this information in my review so that other people can at least be aware that there may be a mercury (and other contaminant) issue here and can do their own research. Now I take my magnesium chloride in the form of Life Flow Health Magenesium Oil on my skin. Magnesium chloride also helps raise DHEA (if it is low) by applying it to the skin - an added bonus. I hope you find this information useful.
I love Trace Minerals products and I've been using this Mega-Mag for a long time now. I love that it comes in a glass bottle so it's not leaching plastic. I put a drop or two in every glass of water I drink at home.
