Desert Harvest Magnesium (160 Capsules)
Magnesium is a mineral vital to optimum health, yet 80% of people do not obtain enough from their diet. It is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including:
- The production and release of energy
- Activation of muscles and nerves
- Blood sugar balance
- The usage of calcium
Magnesium is essential for healthy bones, joints, nerves, muscles, heart rhythm, growth, and overall well-being. Low blood magnesium levels may be associated with PMS symptoms, low back pain, stiff muscles, and muscle cramps, as well as ‘restless leg syndrome’ and anxiety. Deficiency has also been linked to an increased risk of numerous inflammatory diseases and conditions, including joint inflammation, chronopathological asthma, fibromyalgia, neurological complications of post-ischemic stress, metabolic syndrome (Type II diabetes), cardiovascular disease, hypertension, heart failure, arrhythmia, and myocardial infarction.
Desert Harvest Magnesium supplement contains the magnesium oxide form of the mineral, which helps hold liquid in the bowel. This has a stool softening effect which may be helpful for chronic constipation and irritable bowel syndrome. The addition of organic, super-concentrated aloe vera may help your body to absorb more of the nutrient.

If you have impaired kidney function, you should talk with your doctor before beginning a calcium or magnesium supplement regimen, as the levels of these minerals in your blood stream are controlled by your kidneys.

Tiny says: I suffered with anxiety for many years and I find magnesium really helpful for that. I no longer need to supplement it separately, as I take a top quality multivitamin with very high levels of magnesium daily, but I do find the mineral enormously helpful and would never let my nutrition regime fall short. I’ve never tried this version.
