Magnesium matters, and not just to your high school chemistry teacher–it’s an essential nutrient, involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Name an organ system, and you’ll find magnesium involved. It’s in our bones, in our brains, in our muscles, and in our bloodstream, building proteins and helping keep our nerves and tendons healthy. 

As essential as magnesium is, magnesium deficiency is a growing problem among Americans. Standard Process E-Z Mg ™ Organic is a powerful tool that can help you beat magnesium deficiency and enjoy the benefits of full nutrition. 

What is Standard Process E-Z Mg ™ Organic? 

Standard Process E-Z Mg ™ Organic is a plant-based magnesium supplement that combines cutting edge whole foods research with established nutrition science.

Approximately 50% of Americans suffer from Magnesium deficiency. There are a few reasons for this. The first is the Standard American Diet (SAD)-- a diet full of highly processed foods and simple sugars, but lacking in nutrient dense fruits and vegetables. But even if you already eat a healthy, balanced diet, you might still be deficient in this essential mineral. 

How is that possible? 

Good nutrition starts with the soil. Unfortunately, decades of poor agricultural practices have left American soil deficient in several key minerals, including magnesium.

Not only does this mean the plants themselves are less healthy, but when they wind up in our kitchens and on our plates, our produce contains fewer nutrients that our bodies can use. A good supplement can be indispensable for closing the magnesium gap when regular food can’t.

What makes E-Z Mg ™ different from other Magnesium Supplements?

Unlike synthetic magnesium supplements which contain only one type of magnesium, E-Z Mg ™ contains multiple types of Magnesium for optimal absorption. This is because Standard Process E-Z Mg uses plant-based magnesium derived from organic, high-quality vegetables like buckwheat and swiss chard. 

In a recent study, E-Z Mg ™ was found to increase free ionic Mg in the cerebrospinal fluid following just 14 days of oral supplementation in rats. Even more important: natural, plant-based Mg was significantly more impactful than synthetic magnesium salts made in a lab.

Through healthy agricultural practices like crop rotation and organic fertilization techniques that preserve the nutrient content of the soil, Standard Process ensures that its supplements are made from high-quality natural ingredients. 

Because E-Z Mg ™ supplies the body with magnesium in the way it’s used to receiving it (from food), it’s both more effective, and less likely to cause digestive upset, a common issue with synthetic magnesium supplements. 

E-Z Mg ™ Organic Benefits

Standard Process E-Z Mg ™ Organic can help support: 

Healthy, restorative sleep

Melatonin isn’t the only way to get a good night’s sleep. Magnesium plays an essential role in the body’s sleep pathways. Studies demonstrate that magnesium supplementation is associated with sleep that is longer, more restful, and deeper in individuals with sleep disorders like insomnia. 

Stress relief

Magnesium levels and stress are closely linked. On the one hand, magnesium deficiency can lead to physical stress as the body scrambles to make up the deficit. On the other, high stress levels can deplete magnesium, as the body uses this crucial mineral to reduce cortisol, the stress hormone. The result is a vicious cycle of high stress and low magnesium. Supplementing magnesium helps your body reign in runaway stress, breaking the cycle. 

Better mood

Magnesium can help boost your mood and soothe anxiety. Our brain depends on magnesium to keep our nerves healthy and neurotransmitter levels balanced. Without it, we can experience severe fluctuations in our mental health. When magnesium is present, it binds to special receptors in our brain called GABA receptors, producing a calming effect. 

Stronger, more flexible muscles

Ever heard of an epsom salt bath for tight muscles? The active ingredient in epsom salts that helps soothe muscle cramps is the same as E-Z Mg ™: magnesium! Magnesium tells our muscles to relax, leading to healthier, more durable muscle tissues in the long run. 

Signs of Magnesium Deficiency

The top five signs of magnesium deficiency include: 

  • Muscle cramps (especially in the legs)
  • Sleep problems
  • Low energy
