7-Salt Magnesium is magnesium from the expert and the doctor‘s first choice. Biogena product development has created a capsule with an ideal mixture of various soluble and magnesium-rich compounds. This ensures a good magnesium supply – even in patients with intestinal disorders or when using proton pump inhibitors. 7-Salt Magnesium is therefore particularly suitable for preventive, therapeutic and adjuvant therapeutic use over a wide range of indications.
To develop an ideal mixture of various magnesium salts, extensive solubility tests were carried out.
Laboratory tests once again underlined the importance of the acidic stomach environment for magnesium solubility. The tests showed that the shift of the pH value towards pH 8 to pH 9 leads to a less pronounced decrease in bioavailability for the magnesium compounds citrate, gluconate and glycerophosphate than for the other
compounds. However, the presence of organic magnesium compounds can lower the pH locally, resulting in higher solubility. Therefore, organic magnesium salts, such as magnesium citrate, are generally considered to be more bioavailable and are usually also used to treat magnesium deficiency symptoms. However, the magnesium content of a compound should also be considered in this context: For example, magnesium oxide, which performs worst in an alkaline environment, provides 63% more magnesium ions in an acidic environment than e.g. magnesium gluconate with only 5.8%.
