A letter of recommendation by Ann L. Manby Sura, NMD:

To Whom It May Concern:
I have used Jigsaw Health Magnesium w/SRT on many patients since I was introduced to it in 2005 when I was approached to be on the Medical Advisory Board of Jigsaw Health. As Naturopathic students and physicians, you know that magnesium is active in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Deficiencies are common and lead to numerous health complaints.
Many of my patients are deficient in Magnesium and getting them to take oral doses sufficient to replenish their needs (even in between IM injections) was always a challenge due to the GI side effects that high dose magnesium can have. (No one likes running to the bathroom with bowel urgency many times a day!)
Jigsaw's Magnesium w/SRT is one of my favorite supplements and one of my best sellers. As a Naturopathic doctor, I appreciate the purity of it as well (no artificial colors or dyes, no casein, no chemical additives, no gluten, no lactose, no pesticides, no preservatives, no carnauba wax). Not only do patients feel good on it, I know it is being absorbed well because I see RBC levels of magnesium improve as their symptoms improve. And most importantly, they dont suffer the diarrhea side effects from as much as 8 or even 10 capsules a day! (If they need such high doses, I know I can safely give them)
I successfully use it for patients with PMS, sleep problems like restless legs as well as just difficulty relaxing at night, muscle cramping or soreness (including injuries), and headaches. I combine it with Jigsaws calcium for patients with bone loss. I have to say I have never had such success with any magnesium product as I have the Jigsaw Magnesium w/SRT.
I hope you find success with it as well and encourage you to contact me or Jigsaw Health with any questions or to share your success stories.
Yours In Health,
Ann L. Manby Sura, NMD
