|"love this product for leg cramps and in general because probably most of us are deficient in good magnesium. This brand is highly recommended by Dr. Blaylock who knows the value of nutrients to maintain health!" -Ruth Wilson|
|"Great feeling much better, leg cramps have disappeared at night!" -Stormlyn|
|"The fact that this is a time-released magnesium made all of the difference in dealing with side effects. Mainly, I take magnesium for leg and foot cramps. I have been on Jigsaw Magnesium for more than a month now and have not suffered with cramps. I take the normal dosage. This is the best and most effective magnesium that I have found." -L. Brock|
|"I've been taking this magnesium supplement since I was a few months pregnant and it's changed my life. I sleep better, I feel better, my digestion works better, and I'm probably the only pregnant woman I know that didn't have leg cramps or back pain her entire pregnancy. I recommended it to a pregnant co-worker of mine and she told me her midnight battle with charlie horses disappeared that same night. I tell everyone I know about this product. Try it, you won't regret it." -Sarah Murphy|
|"I experienced immediate results. Within the first couple of days I noticed decrease muscle tension, more energy, and a decrease in anxious feelings." -Anonymous|
The "SRT" in Jigsaw MagSRT™ stands for Sustained Release Technology, often referred to as "time-release", and it's the major difference that gives this product its superior effectiveness.
Instead of the magnesium being dumped into your system all at once, SRT slows down the release of magnesium so it's spread out over 8 hours, which allows your body to absorb the maximum it needs to start feeling your best... avoiding the dreaded digestive discomfort that high doses of most magnesium supplements can cause.*
Magnesium deficiency is running rampant among Americans. Many experts estimate that 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient. And, a major contributing factor is the presence of excess calcium in the body mainly coming from the extreme ratio difference in common foods such as: fortified orange juice (27:1), cheese (26:1), yogurt (11:1), dairy (7:1) and the very commonly used antacids (300:1). Other common contributing factors include:
It’s critical to get high enough doses of magnesium to compensate for the fact that our typical diet runs low on this vital mineral.*

The RDI for magnesium is 400mg per day, so everyone should at least get that much.
Jigsaw Health's recommended dose is a little higher at 500mg a day (or more, as bowel tolerance allows). This is because many people have been running low on magnesium for years and need more than the "minimum" to replenish their magnesium stores.
Some experts in the field — such as Dr. Russell Blaylock — recommend 1000mg a day as the optimal dose to relieve the effects that can be connected to magnesium-deprived diets.*
Although there are thousands of cheaper magnesium supplements available, the simple truth is that you CANNOT replenish your body's magnesium stores with a cheap magnesium supplement.
Why? Because you cannot take high doses of a regular magnesium supplement without it causing a very uncomfortable laxative effect—your body's way of discarding high levels of magnesium that it is unable to absorb all at once. And the low doses you're restricted to simply won't deliver results.
So, yes other magnesium supplements cost less, but that doesn't matter much when the ONLY thing they will deliver — at high enough doses — is an extreme laxative effect.
Our SRT technology successfully addresses this issue by SLOWLY releasing a higher amount of magnesium, pacing it out over 6 to 8 hours—a rate at which your body can properly absorb and utilize the mineral. Your body gets the magnesium it craves, without any digestive drama.*
No. The Recommended Dietary Intake (RDI) is the minimum amount required to avoid a deficiency — not necessarily the maximum amount required for optimal health.
Most magnesium supplements cannot meet, let alone exceed, the 400mg RDI for magnesium because they will often produce an unwanted laxative effect (aka - diarrhea) at that level.
Comparatively, four easy-to-swallow tablets of Jigsaw MagSRT™ delivers 500mg of magnesium each day, exceeding the RDI by 25% to effectively achieve healthy magnesium levels— without uncomfortable digestive issues.*
Quatrefolic® (5-MTHF, or folate) is an active form of Vitamin B-9, folic acid. For many people, it is difficult to convert folic acid into folate.
Folate is an important co-factor to P5P and beneficial to many bodily functions. Together, these greatly improve Magnesium’s function to support optimal health.
P5P (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate), the active form of Vitamin B6, performs over 30 critical enzymatic reactions in the body, including the manufacture of serotonin and dopamine in the brain. The inactive forms of B6 (pyridoxine hydro-chloride, pyridoxal, or pyridoxamine) have to be converted by the liver to the active form (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate or P5P) the body needs. Individuals with compromised liver function have difficulty making this conversion and consequently may be at risk of a vitamin B6 deficiency.
P5P works synergistically with Magnesium in many ways. A deficiency in either causes many issues where the body depends on both Mg and P5P. It is critical to get both.
Since Vitamin B6 is already difficult to get and convert into its usable form, we give it to you already in its active P5P form. All the benefits are available immediately after absorption - no trouble converting or waiting.
Methylcobalamin, the active form of Vitamin B12, is included as a supporting B vitamin to contribute to the effectiveness of Magnesium.
Additionally, methylcobalamin is a necessary cofactor for your body's ability to properly methylate. Methylation is a cycle that occurs in your body billions of times every second. It's one of the most important biochemical processes for long-term health and essential for the proper function of almost all of your body's systems.
Using the active form of B12 is particularly important because people with chronic conditions are poor methylators -- making it difficult to convert inactive forms into their useful active form.
Yes. A number of customers requested the ability to supplement their B-vitamins separately, so we created Jigsaw Magnesium w/SRT® (B-Free).
Many of our customers see a difference in the very first week of using Jigsaw MagSRT™, because an absorbable, high dose supplement starts to replenish magnesium stores right away.*
While most of our customers report that 500mg a day works wonders for their health goals, many others take 1,000mg a day (as bowel tolerance allows) in order to follow Dr. Blaylock's recommendation, and to gain the maximum number of benefits that magnesium provides when your body has an ample supply.*
My magnesium levels were low and this supplement from Jigsaw brought it up to normal levels. I am on my fourth bottle and I have only used this brand. I feel so much better and not as tired and sleepy as I used to be. Unknown on 16th Jan 2016
Been using this product for about 6 months and really like it. I won't take any other brand. Just not as effective as Jigsaw. Linda G on 7th Jan 2016
Blood draws weekly. Maintenance levels maintained. Ric Parks on 3rd Jan 2016
Great combination of ingredients. Excellent forms of the individual ingredients. Good sources. Real live, knowledgeable, and kind people to talk with when you call with a question. I don't know if it gets any better. Tad on 1st Jan 2016
Really regulates my body. If I take it twice a day, I never have constipation problems. Eating properly is just not enough to make it happen consistently Renee on 12th Dec 2015
About a year ago, I started getting severe migraines. I thought they were just bad headaches until I started having trouble walking during the attacks as my balance would be thrown off.
I had previously researched Jigsaw's magnesium supplement and decided to try it. The sustained or slow release was what sold me because I know that one's body can only absorb so much of anything at one time. I have been taking the magnesium for a couple months now and my migraines have decreased DRAMATICALLY! I was getting a migraine every other day and now I have a couple a month and they are not nearly as severe as they were.
Often, when I get a headache now, I can take two Aleve and the headache will go away or be tolerable. Thank you so much for making such an effective product without the undesirable side effects of a magnesium supplement. Miranda M. on 10th Dec 2015
I give my horses Magnesium for muscle calmness with success so looked for a product for me to try. Researched different kinds of Magnesium and their side effects, discovered Malate Magnesium looked best--important that it didn't mess with bowel tolerance, and Jigsaws controlled release feature looked even better. I've been on it for about 3 months now with GREAT results. My husband also is taking it for his severe leg muscle cramps and is pleased with good results there too. I also have my son on it. So yes, I'm a fan--great product~!! Unknown on 19th Nov 2015
I have taken Jigsaw Health product "Magnesium w/SRT" for several years. It helps with cramping in the muscles of my legs My daughter also takes it. For several months my husband has been having problems with cramping since his back surgery. Finally, it dawned on me to have him start taking the magnesium, two in the morning and two at night. It worked wonders for him. Marilyn on 12th Nov 2015
I searched for a long time for a powerful magnesium supplement that would be easily absorbed, effective, and kind to my stomach. At the recommendation of a friend, I tried Jigsaw Magnesium w/SRT, and I am truly pleased with the results. NO leg or foot cramps during the night like I used to suffer from . . . and that's only the obvious effect. When I first heard of this product, I was concerned because I've been told that the only good way to make supplements is in capsule or gel form, but I am not aware of any drawbacks from this formula being in pill form. Thanks for the high quality! Worth the price, for sure. Elianne in Arizona on 10th Nov 2015
Magnesium feels very smooth, and work more effectively at a lower dosage than other magnesium I've tried. Enthusiastic response from those I've recommended it to. Unknown on 2nd Nov 2015
