The uses and benefits of Magnesium Taurate

  • Magnesium Taurate is a supplement that boosts magnesium levels in people with a deficiency of the mineral.
  • Magnesium is a vital nutrient for regulating many body processes, including muscle and nerve function, blood sugar levels, and blood pressure. This mineral also supports the making of protein, bone, and DNA.
  • The body requires magnesium in large amounts. This type of mineral is known as a macro-mineral.
  • While the most efficient way to consume nutrients is in their natural forms, supplements are available to boost magnesium intake in people with low levels.

Uses

  • Magnesium Taurate is a supplement that the body can easily absorb.
  • People often use Magnesium Taurate instead of other magnesium supplements, as the body finds it easier to absorb magnesium in this form. It is also one of the gentlest supplements on the stomach.
  • Unlike other forms of magnesium, it might not cause as many side effects, such as an upset stomach or loose stools.
  • This characteristic makes magnesium Taurate a good supplement for people recovering from bariatric surgery or anyone who might be at risk for magnesium levels.
  • People who have kidney issues should consult a doctor before taking magnesium Taurate. Kidney problems can cause difficulties in excreting excess magnesium.

Benefits

Some people benefit more from magnesium Taurate than others.

People with the following conditions might see positive effects after taking Magnesium Taurate:

High blood pressure or heart disease: Magnesium supplements can help decrease blood pressure.

Type 2 diabetes: Consuming high amounts of magnesium in the diet might reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Magnesium helps to break down sugars and might decrease insulin resistance.

Osteoporosis: Magnesium plays a role in the development of healthy bones, and people with higher levels of magnesium might have a higher bone mineral density. This is important in helping reduce the risk of bone fractures and osteoporosis.

Migraine headaches: People who experience migraines sometimes have low levels of magnesium in their blood and tissues. Supplements may help reduce the frequency of migraines.

Depression: Serotonin is a “feel-good” chemical in the brain. Insufficient levels of magnesium seem to reduce serotonin levels, and antidepressants can raise levels of brain magnesium.

Measuring magnesium levels in the blood can show misleading results because magnesium sits within the cells or bones, rather than the bloodstream.

Doctors will typically measure serum magnesium concentrations in the blood, saliva, or urine to help assess levels as accurately as possible.

A person should wait for a final diagnosis of deficiency before taking supplements, as the symptoms commonly associated with low magnesium levels could be the cause of another health problem.

Legumes are a key source of magnesium.

Most people can reach the recommended daily dosage through diet alone. Many common foods contain magnesium.

Common foods that contain magnesium Legumes, nuts, and seeds, whole grains, spinach, and other leafy vegetables, fortified breakfast cereals and other fortified foods, yogurt, milk, and other dairy products

Requirements When people who do not have magnesium deficiency experience low magnesium levels, the kidneys help to retain magnesium by restricting the amount that the body loses in the urine. This process has a temporary effect until levels rise, but a person with low magnesium levels for long periods can develop magnesium deficiency.

Causes Some gastrointestinal diseases can lead to magnesium deficiency. There are non-dietary causes that can reduce magnesium levels. Some medical conditions and medications affect magnesium absorption. They can also increase the amount of magnesium expelled from the body. These factors can result in magnesium deficiency.

Health conditions that can lead to magnesium deficiencies include:

  • Gastrointestinal diseases, such as irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, and ulcerative colitis
  • Diabetes
  • Pancreatitis
  • High thyroid hormone levels
  • Kidney disease
  • Long-term use of proton pump inhibitors, such as Prilosec

Some medications can have a similar effect, including:

  • Taking prescription drugs used to treat acid reflux or peptic ulcers, which can lead to low blood levels of magnesium when people take them over a long period
  • Taking diuretics, which assist with water retention and can increase or decrease the loss of magnesium through urine.

Certain lifestyle factors can also reduce magnesium levels, including:

  • Drinking too much coffee, soda, or alcohol
  • Eating too much sodium
  • Heavy menstrual periods
  • Excessive sweating

Symptoms People who are deficient in magnesium can experience the following symptoms:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Fatigue and weakness

Extreme magnesium deficiency can lead to the following symptoms:

  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Muscle cramps
  • Seizures
  • Personality changes
  • Abnormal heart rhythm
  • Risks and complications

They can confirm the condition through blood tests, as well as identify the correct plan of action to return magnesium levels to normal.

Taking large or frequent doses of dietary magnesium supplements, including magnesium Taurate, can cause adverse effects, including diarrhea, nausea, and stomach cramps. Extremely high intakes of magnesium can lead to an irregular heartbeat and potentially cardiac arrest, which can be dangerous.

Magnesium Taurate and other supplements might also interfere or interact with the following medicines:

Bisphosphonates: These are used to treat osteoporosis. The body does not absorb these drugs well if people take them too close to taking supplements or medications that contain a high amount of magnesium.

Antibiotics: The body may not absorb some antibiotics if an individual takes them too soon before or after a magnesium supplement.

Taking extremely high doses of supplemental zinc can also interfere with the absorption and regulation of magnesium in the body.

Increasing longevity: Vigorous exercise for 2 minutes a day may be enough. However, some people need extra help getting enough magnesium. Choosing the right magnesium supplement can help boost levels of this nutrient and may help with various medical conditions.

The following types of magnesium are popular as general dietary supplements:

Magnesium Taurate

Magnesium Taurate is a compound of magnesium and glycine, an amino acid.

Research on magnesium glycine indicates that people tolerate it well and that it seems to cause minimal side effects. This means it may be a good option for people who require higher doses of this nutrient or who experience side effects when using other types of magnesium.

Magnesium Lactate

This type of magnesium is a compound of magnesium and lactic acid. According to a 2017 analysis, there is evidence that magnesium lactate absorbs in the gut easily.

Magnesium Malate

This type of magnesium is a compound of magnesium and malic acid. Some evidence suggests that it is highly bioavailable and that people tolerate it well.

A 2019 animal study found that out of several types of magnesium, magnesium malate was the fastest to absorb after a single dose. This may also be true of humans, but human trials are necessary to confirm this.

A 2018 study in humans reports that a supplement containing a combination of magnesium malate and several vitamins caused few digestive side effects.

Magnesium Citrate

Magnesium citrate is a popular form of magnesium. It is often an ingredient in supplements and appears to be easier for the body to absorb than some other forms.

An older 2003 study of 46 adults found that magnesium citrate absorbed better than magnesium oxide and magnesium chelate.

However, doctors also use magnesium citrate to treat constipation. For some people, this may mean it causes unwanted digestive side effects, such as diarrhea.

For topical use 

Some people use magnesium on the skin. The types of magnesium people can use in this way include:

Magnesium Chloride

Magnesium Chloride is a type of salt that people can find in topical magnesium products, such as magnesium oils and some bath salts. People use it as an alternative method for getting more magnesium.

However, it is unclear whether the skin is capable of absorbing much magnesium via this method.

A 2017 review concludes that while there is evidence that the body can absorb a small amount of magnesium through the skin, large-scale studies are necessary to determine its effectiveness.

People can also take magnesium chloride internally, as the intestines absorb it well. However, as with some other types of magnesium, it may cause digestive side effects.

Magnesium Sulfate

Magnesium Sulfate is the form of magnesium in Epsom salts.

Many people add Epsom salts to baths and foot soaks to soothe aching muscles. However, there is little high-quality evidence showing that the body can absorb much magnesium from magnesium sulfate baths.

For specific conditions

Several types of magnesium can help treat constipation, such as magnesium citrate. Other types may have utility as medical treatments.

Magnesium Oxide

Doctors may use magnesium oxide to treat constipation or as an antacid for heartburn or indigestion.

Magnesium oxide is also present in some dietary supplements. However, the body does not absorb this form of magnesium well, according to a 2017 analysis.

Magnesium Taurate

This type of magnesium is a compound of magnesium and taurine. Limited evidence suggests it may have the potential to lower blood pressure and protect the cardiovascular system.

Authors of a 2018 animal study reported that Magnesium Taurate reduced high blood pressure and heart damage in rats that had taken a toxic substance. The researchers conclude that this shows the potential of Magnesium Taurate as a cardioprotective nutritional supplement.

However, until more research takes place, people should not use magnesium supplements as treatments for cardiovascular conditions.

How to choose a magnesium product

When choosing magnesium products, it is important to consider:

How much magnesium a person already consumes in their diet

Whether a supplement or topical product is necessary

How much additional magnesium a person needs

The best format for delivery, that is, oral or topical

This can help with choosing a product that will be safe and effective.

The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of magnesium is 400–420 milligrams (mg) for adult males and 310–360 mg for adult females. During pregnancy and lactation, a person’s RDA may increase to 400 mg daily.

People can determine whether they need help getting more magnesium by asking a doctor to test their magnesium levels.

Health benefits of magnesium

Magnesium plays a crucial role in the body, regulating blood pressure, blood sugar levels, neurotransmitters, and more.

For those who do not get enough magnesium, taking more may:

  • Improve sleep quality
  • Boost mental health
  • Ease muscle aches
  • Help people quit smoking
  • Boost vitamin d absorption
  • Support health during pregnancy
  • Promote bone health

There is also some evidence magnesium may be useful as part of a treatment plan for the following conditions:

  • Migraine
  • Asthma
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Diabetes and diabetic neuropathy
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Eclampsia and preeclampsia

A person should consult a doctor before taking any supplement for an underlying health condition.

Food sources

People can get more magnesium from their food. Dietary sources of magnesium include:

  • roasted pumpkin seeds, which contain 37% of the daily value per ounce (oz)
  • chia seeds, which contain 26% of the daily value per oz
  • almonds, which contain 19% of the daily value per 1 oz
  • boiled spinach, which contains 19% of the daily value per 1/2 cup
  • Cashews, peanuts, soy milk, and black beans are also good sources. Many other foods contain smaller amounts.

However, the body only absorbs around 30–40% of the dietary magnesium a person consumes. This, combined with the relatively small amount of foods that contain high amounts of magnesium, may make it challenging for some people to get enough of this nutrient from their diet.

Summary

Magnesium is essential for health. For some people, a magnesium supplement may be necessary to get enough of this mineral.

Several types of magnesium are suitable as dietary supplements, such as magnesium citrate, Taurate, and lactate. Other kinds have topical uses, such as in baths or on the skin.
