Mag-Tab®SR caplets are a 84 mg sustained release caplet formulation of magnesium L-lactate dihydrate. Unlike Slow-Mag® and other common magnesium supplements, the Mag-Tab®SR formulation will not swell or crack when exposed to normal room conditions.
The sustained release formulation when taken twice daily provides 24 hours of continuous magnesium absorption. This allows the kidneys to use and redistribute this important mineral more efficiently to the body’s cells.
Each two caplet serving of Mag-Tab®SR contains 168 mg of magnesium L-lactate dihydrate plus FDA approved excipients to control the release. Please see the fact panel on the Shop Page for a list of all inactive ingredients which are all FDA approved.
No. Each Two Mag-Tab®SR Caplet serving provide 42% of the RDA for adults. Please see the magnesium comparison chart contained under the Mag-Tab®SR Benefits section of the website. Also, key to note, Mag-Tab®SR is absorbed seven times better than common magnesium oxide tablets which may contain more elemental magnesium, but are poorly absorbed.
The most common side effect is a mild laxation effect evidenced with minor loose stools. Most people taking Mag-Tab®SR do not experience this problem after a few days of therapy.
The only contraindication to Mag-Tab®SR is for people with kidney disease. Do not take Mag-Tab®SR if you have kidney impairment without the advice and direct supervision of a physician.
Two caplets taken twice daily provides 84% of the RDA of magnesium. For any other dosage above the RDA for magnesium, you should consult your physician.
