About Magnesium

Magnesium has been recognized for centuries for its healing properties. Magnesium’s key functions within the body consist of supporting heart health, activation of enzymes, cellular energy, maintaining pH balance, and supporting bone health. Although magnesium can be found in a wide variety of foods including leafy green vegetables, whole grains, seeds, nuts, corn, coffee, and dark chocolate, most adults fail to consume adequate amounts of magnesium in their diets, making supplementation necessary for overall health.

Reformulation update:

In an effort to ensure that our products continue to meet the highest standards of our discerning customers, our Magnesium Gold has been reformulated and has a brand new look, but without sacrificing or compromising on the outstanding quality that consumers have come to expect from NutriGold. A summary of the changes is provided below for your reference:

  • New look - Our logo, label, and product packaging have been updated to reflect the purity and quality of our products. Check out our new look at: www.nutrigold.com
  • Same great quality - The new formulation still provides a highly bioavailable source of magnesium (as magnesium hydroxide) from pristine seawaters off the Irish coast. The elemental magnesium obtained from seawater contains the same trace mineral profile as Lithothamnion Aquamin and includes 72 other naturally occurring trace minerals. Although the additional elements contained are at trace quantities and non-significant when considered alone, they work synergistically as part of the multi-mineral matrix to give a powerful boost to the action of the magnesium.
  • Non-GMO Project™ verified - This new formulation provides a "natural" source of Magnesium (as opposed to the synthetic, chelated magnesium in our original formulation) and is independently verified non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project.
  • Potency per capsule / Serving size - The new and improved formulation provides 200 mg of elemental magnesium per capsule instead of the 100 mg of elemental magnesium per capsule that our original formulation provided. This means you will only have to take 2 capsules (instead of 4) to meet the recommended intake of 400 mg of elemental magnesium.
  • Other Ingredients - The new formulation is encapsulated in a vegetarian capsule and includes small amounts of rice concentrate and organic olive oil as flow agents to ensure product integrity and compliance with label claims.

Reasons for the changes in formulation

Our earlier formulation of magnesium was extremely popular among consumers because it contained highly bioavailable elemental magnesium (as mineral chelates). Regrettably, however, we were unable to get Non-GMO Project verification for the chelated magnesium despite working collaboratively with our industry partners over several months because Non-GMO Project requires "complete and unconditional" supply chain transparency and the process used to chelate the magnesium is considered confidential and protected by patent agreements.

We would like to take this opportunity to clarify that an inability on the part of the ingredient manufacturer to disclose pertinent information to complete verification does not mean that the ingredient in our original formulation was derived from or processed using genetically modified ingredients. Our primary reason for switching to the natural marine source was quite simply that, all things considered equal, the marine source provides a highly bioavailable source of magnesium along with 72 trace minerals that can help enhance the biological activity of magnesium in the body and the formulation offers complete peace of mind with regard to its non-GMO status, factors that are extremely important to many of our valued customers.

So, as disappointing as it was to replace the trusted chelated source with the natural marine source, we knew it was the right thing to do to ensure that our products continue to meet the high-quality standards that customers have come to expect from the NutriGold brand. We hope our commitment to using only the purest ingredients is evident in our new formulation as well.

Elemental magnesium (from magnesium hydroxide)

Most consumers are familiar with "milk of magnesia," a laxative that is recommended for occasional relief from digestive discomfort. Milk of magnesia is NOT the same as the elemental magnesium (from magnesium hydroxide) that is used in our current formulation.

Milk of magnesia is pure magnesium hydroxide that is NOT standardized to elemental magnesium and does NOT contain the 72 essential trace minerals that naturally occur in the marine source that the ingredient in our product is sourced from. Although individual differences can and do vary with any food or supplement, the elemental magnesium (from calcined seawater / magnesium hydroxide) has a history of safe use and the risk of a laxative effect, although theoretically possible, is extremely unlikely when used as directed.

We ask that you please review supplement facts panel information and FAQs below to learn more about the new formulation so you can make an informed purchasing decision that's right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the source of magnesium in Magnesium Gold?
The highly bioavailable magnesium (as magnesium hydroxide) in Magnesium Gold is derived naturally from clean seawaters off the Irish coast.

Does Magnesium Gold contain anything other than the active ingredient?
In addition to the active ingredient, Magnesium Gold contains some rice concentrate and organic olive oil. Because natural ingredients can vary from batch to batch in terms of consistency, moisture (or stickiness) and particle size, it is sometimes necessary to add these during the manufacturing process to help ensure product integrity without compromising product safety or effectiveness.

Is Magnesium Gold suitable for vegans/vegetarians?
Magnesium Gold does not contain any animal-derived ingredients and is, therefore, suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.

How long do I have to take Magnesium Gold before I see any benefits?
Unlike OTC and prescription drugs that provide instant, temporary, symptomatic relief, dietary supplements provide progressive, long-term benefits by strengthening and supporting the body's natural defenses. Most supplements, including Magnesium Gold, need to be taken for at least 6 to 8 weeks before the benefits of taking the supplement can be experienced. Please be advised that nutritional supplements work best when they are taken as part of a health maintenance program that includes a sensible diet rich in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, a moderate exercise program, and the necessary lifestyle changes to support wellness.

What are the side effects, interactions, and/or contraindications, if any, associated with Magnesium Gold?
Magnesium Gold is generally well-tolerated by most individuals, however magnesium supplementation can cause side effects including stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Those who abuse alcohol, have diseases that affect magnesium absorption, and the elderly are at an increased risk for magnesium deficiency. Individuals with bleeding disorders, diabetes, kidney problems, such as kidney failure, or any other known or suspected medical condition should consult a healthcare professional before taking magnesium. Please consult a healthcare professional before taking magnesium if you are taking antibiotics, bisphosphonates, medications for high blood pressure, muscle relaxants, water pills, or any other OTC or prescription medications. It is always recommended to consult your healthcare provider before taking any supplements if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding.

Is Magnesium Gold safe for long-term use?
Magnesium Gold should be safe for both short-term and long-term use when used as directed and under the guidance of an experienced herbalist or other healthcare provider.
