What is "SRT" and why is it so important?

The "SRT" in Jigsaw MagSRT® stands for Sustained Release Technology, often referred to as "time-release", and it's the major difference that gives this product its superior effectiveness.*

Instead of the magnesium supplement 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 most high potency magnesium supplements can cause.*

Quatrefolic® (5-MTHF, or folate) is an active form of Vitamin B-9, folic acid. For many people, it is difficult for the liver to convert folic acid into folate and can lead to a deficiency.

Folate is an important cofactor to Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P5P, Vitamin B6) and beneficial to many bodily functions. Together, these greatly improve Magnesium’s function to support optimal health.*

Why is Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) included?

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.*

Why is Malic Acid included?

Magnesium malate is formed when magnesium is attached to malic acid (an organic compound found in fruits and vegetables, especially apples).  Malic acid is used by the body to help create energy and has several other health benefits including: the ability to bind to toxic metals and excrete them from your body, skin health, healthy relaxed muscles, and oral health.*

Why is Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) included?

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 ways. A deficiency in either causes many issues where the body depends on both Magnesium and P5P. 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.

MagSRT® by Jigsaw Health was evaluated in the Scottsdale Magnesium Study (SMS), a placebo-controlled, human clinical trial of 91 participants. The study measured Serum Magnesium, Red Blood Cell (RBC) Magnesium, and Magnesium Deficiency symptoms. The results are published in the peer-reviewed Journal of American College of Nutrition (JACN).

What is the Recommended Dietary Intake (RDI) for Magnesium?

The Recommended Dietary Intake (RDI) for Magnesium is 420mg per day and 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 420mg 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 MagSRT® high-potency magnesium supplement delivers 500mg of magnesium each day, exceeding the RDI by 19% to effectively achieve healthy magnesium levels— without uncomfortable digestive issues.*

How much Magnesium should I take a day?

The RDI for magnesium is 420mg per day, so everyone should at least get that much.

However, many people have been running low on magnesium for years and need more than the "minimum" to replenish their magnesium stores.  In fact, factors such as stress, medications, and poor diet further deplete magnesium levels daily.*

Morely Robbins, founder of The Magnesium Advocacy Group, recommends 5mg of magnesium per pound of body weight (example: if you weigh 200 pounds, that would be 1,000mg of magnesium per day).  

Other experts in the field — such as Dr. Russell Blaylock — recommend 1000mg a day regardless of weight as the optimal dose to relieve the effects that can be connected to magnesium-deprived diets.*
