Active Ingredients: Magnesium (as dimagnesium malate), Vitamin C (as ascorbyl palmitate), Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxal-5-phosphate), Folate (as Quatrefolic® 5MTHF), Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin), Malic Acid (as dimagnesium malate).
The malate form of magnesium is 85% absorbable.
Suggested Use: Take 2 tablets twice daily (2 in the morning, 2 in the evening). For advanced use take 4 tablets twice daily (4 in the morning, 4 in the evening - may split into smaller doses as needed). Or use as directed by your healthcare professional. Take with food.
Please Note: If you are currently being treated for kidney disease, please consult your healthcare professional before taking any magnesium supplement as magnesium toxicity can occur in those with kidney disease.
"I experienced immediate results. Within the first couple of days I noticed decrease muscle tension, more energy, and a decrease in anxious feelings."
The "SRT" in Jigsaw Magnesium w/SRT® stands for Sustained Release Technology, 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.*
If you want to promote healthy and relaxed muscle tone and function, as well as support joint health, digestive health, healthy sleep cycles, and overall energy, then you must take a high enough dose of magnesium to compensate for the fact that our typical modern daily diet tends to run 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's craving, without any digestive drama.*
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 supporting healthy muscular tone, enhancing overall energy, and promoting stable mood, calmness, and good sleep.
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 kinds of ways, including relaxing muscles and nerves. A deficiency in either causes many issues where the body depends on both Mg and P5P. We put them together because it is not unusual for people with chronic illness to not make P5P effectively. 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.
Furthermore... Mangesium, B6, B9, and B12 work together to help maintain normal blood levels of the amino acid, homocyteine.
Homocysteine at high concentrations is linked to serious health conditions. Magnesium and these supporting B vitamins work together to maintain normal blood levels for optimal health.
Many of our customers see a difference in the very first week of using Jigsaw Magnesium w/SRT®, 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.*
When the body's magnesium stores are taxed—a common occurrence considering our magnesium-poor diets—the body provides some clear hints. Body aches, constipation, tension headaches, reduced energy, interrupted sleep, and many other indicators are the body's way of saying it wants more magnesium.* Magnesium is involved in more than 325 enzyme reactions. It's likely there are hundreds more that scientists have yet to discover.
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 Magnesium w/SRT® delivers 500mg of magnesium each day, exceeding the RDI by 25% to effectively achieve healthy magnesium levels— without uncomfortable digestive issues.*
I love the fact that it is sustained release and that it's so easy to get a good dose of Magnesium for the day, which I have always needed a lot of. I'm also happy that the tablets are so easy to swallow as I have difficulty swallowing tablets & usually look for a capsule alternative. These are just beautiful to swallow. Thank you for a fantastic product. Alda Venables on 20th Jan 2016
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
