Many physicians are familiar with the problem of poor bioavailability of most magnesium salts, including the ‘oxide,’ the most widely-available available oral formulation of magnesium. Patients with migraine, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, or ethanol abuse are often at risk for hypomagnesemia. The problem is that magnesium oxide is relatively insoluble in aqueous solutions, and is not effective in most patients when given as a supplement. Mag-Tab® SR is a sustained-release formulation of magnesium L-lactate dihydrate that provides controlled release of highly bioavailable magnesium in the gut lumen. Mag-Tab® SR provides an effective way to replete and maintain magnesium levels in the body.

When taken twice daily, Mag-Tab® SR allows for a prolonged slow release of magnesium L-lactate into your gastro system over a 24 hour period. Thus, when absorbed, it allows the kidneys to more effectively distribute the magnesium you need back to your body’s cells. Many people who have taken Mag-Tab® SR for years had it originally prescribed by doctors who were familiar with this process.
Mag-Tab® SR has an exceptional absorption rate, higher bioavailability, and low GI side effects. In fact, in over twenty-eight years, two hundred plus million doses of Mag-Tab® SR have been recommended by physicians to people needing our product’s attributes.
