Designed to support a healthy immune system and strong bones. This Magnesium supplement contains three of the most bioavailable forms of Magnesium – citrate, glycinate, and malate – along with Zinc and Vitamin D3, and is manufactured in the US using only natural ingredients that are free from soy, dairy, gluten,  sugar, shellfish, and preservatives



Magnesium Citrate, Magnesium Glycinate, and Magnesium Malate

225 mg Magnesium per serving.


Magnesium Citrate

 Magnesium bound with naturally occurring citric acid, Magnesium Citrate has been shown in some studies to be the most bioavailable form of Magnesium, allowing the body to absorb it easily and for it to work quickly and effectively. (source) 

Magnesium Glycinate

Formed from elemental magnesium and the amino acid glycine, Magnesium Glycinate also easily absorbed by the body, and less likely to cause digestive issues (such as diarrhea) than Magnesium Citrate and some other forms. It is commonly used as a treatment for inflammatory conditions such as heart disease and diabetes (source) and there is some evidence to suggest that it has calming properties and can help to reduce anxiety, depression, stress, and insomnia. (source)

Magnesium Malate

Magnesium Malate is made from Magnesium and Malic Acid which is commonly used as a food additive and occurs naturally in a number of fruits and vegetables. There is evidence to suggest that Magnesium Malate is well absorbed by your body (source) making it an effective way to treat Magnesium deficiency, and it also may be less likely to cause laxative effects than some other forms.


Zinc Citrate and Zinc Ascorbate

7.5 mg of Zinc per serving.


Central to your immune function, and used to make both protein and DNA Zinc is among the most important of all micronutrients and is second only to iron as the most prevalent trace mineral found in the body (source)

Some research suggests that, in the correct dosage, Zinc may help reduce muscle cramps, with one clinical trial finding 30mg Zinc Supplementation improved cramps in 10/12 patients, and completely resolved the issues in 7 (source)

Vitamin D3

(as Cholecalciferol)

25 mcg (1000 IU) per serving.


Vitamin D deficiency is linked to a number of issues, including, reduced mineral density and bone diseases such as osteoporosis (source). It is also linked with an increased risk of heart disease, type 1 and 2 diabetes, cancer, dementia, and autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis. (source)

Vitamin D deficiency is extremely common with studies finding 41.6% of people in the United States are deficient. (source) 

This supplement contains Vitamin D3, which is widely considered to be significantly more effective than Vitamin D2

Our Verdict

This product is virtually identical to the Essential Elements supplement, containing the exact same ingredients (including high levels of bioavailable Magnesium) in the exact same dosages, and as such would also appear to be an effective supplement for targeting and preventing Magnesium and Vitamin D3 deficiency. Additionally, it has extensive, positive customer reviews, with an average rating of 4.8 out of 5, and has been 3rd Party Tested and manufactured in the USA, and conforms to the standards set by cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices).

However, although this product may be effective in helping reduce muscle cramps by preventing/targeting Magnesium deficiency much like the Essential Elements supplement it has not been designed specifically to combat such symptoms. It should be noted that the recommended dose of two capsules per day contains significantly less Zinc than that found to be effective in reducing cramps (source) and that while vital to your physical and immune health, there is insufficient evidence to suggest that Vitamin D can be used as an effective treatment for muscle cramps.

In addition, though the customer reviews are largely positive, a number mentioned that the capsules had a ‘metallic taste’.
