So why Liquid Mag and How We Designed Our Magnesium Supplement? Through our extensive research we realized that there were over 10 different types of magnesium including:
- magnesium chloride,
- magnesium glycinate,
- magnesium threonate,
- magnesium bicarbonate,
- magnesium citrate,
- magnesium malate,
- magnesium oxide
- and elemental magnesium just to name a few.
This list becomes very confusing and its hard to figure out which is the best for every person. They all have their advantages and disadvantages.
Our intention was to design a product that would have the most benefit to the most people. Our first focus group was designed to see what types of products everyone was taking and find out WHY they were taking these products. The types of products people were taking was all over the board, literally every type. Next we focused on WHY people were taking magnesium, this is where we drew our inspiration.
We found most people were taking magnesium for:
- digestive issues
- and heart health
Based on feedback from the focus group and other message boards on social media we narrowed down our search for the WHY and focused on WHICH type or types of magnesium would be best and balanced for everyone.
In considering our formulation, we of course placed highest priority on the magnesium ion itself. After all, most people aren’t deficient in bicarbonate. Some of the other types of magnesium have interesting properties and help get other beneficial proteins and vitamins to different parts of your brain and body.
These are magnesium Threonate, magnesium glycinate and magnesium chloride. Coincidentally (or not) these are the three types of magnesium in Liquid Mag. I’ll explain a little about each type and why we chose them.
