Royal Green unique formulation
Our certified organic magnesium comes from a special sea lettuce. We provide, therefore, no magnesium citrate, bisglycinate or oxide, since these are examples of synthetic magnesium. Our magnesium comes from nature and grows without the use of pesticides. Vegetable magnesium dissolves easily, does not cause stomach upsets and has a maximum absorption and effect.
Magnesium: is involved in more than 300 enzymatic processes. Studies have shown that magnesium can be used for: sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, tinnitus, spasms, lethargy, fatigue, insomnia, muscle cramps, stress, headaches and premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Magnesium plays a role in: contraction of your muscles, your heart pumping, production of hormones, regulation of blood pressure, concentration, digestion of food, avoiding depression, energy metabolism, bone formation and transmission of nerve impulses.
Vitamin D2: plays an important role for bones. It improves calcium absorption in the intestine and activates the cells that create bone.
Ashwagandha: one of the most powerful Ayurvedic herbs. Scientific research shows the effect of using it against mental problems like stress, depression and fatigue. In another large clinical trial Ashwagandha demonstrated to reduce the levels of the hormone cortisol by 26%. Subjects report improvements with regard to energy, sleep and well‐being as well as reduced fatigue.

The World Health Organization (WHO) indicates that about 20% of the population in Western Europe has a magnesium deficiency. According to researchers in the US, more than 60% of the Americans receive unsufficient magnesium. This while magnesium plays an enormous role in human health. People unfortunately often experience symptoms such as (muscle) cramps, eyelid tremors, spasms, lethargy, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, PMS, nervousness and irritability. All examples that may be caused by a magnesium deficiency. (Costello et al, 1992 , Sales et al in 2006 .. Rylander, 1996 ).
Causes magnesium deficiency
The reason that magnesium deficiency is so common, is because our food unfortunately contains very little magnesium due to soil depletion and artificial fertilization. Moreover, our diet consists of many processed products that usually do not contain the mineral magnesium. The consumption of soft drinks, sugary food and medicine deplete the magnesium in our body. Furthermore, stress also plays a major role in the development of magnesium deficiency. The more stress, the more magnesium is consumed. The lower the magnesium level in the cells, the more sensitive you are to stress.
A low level, or a deficiency of magnesium in the muscles can lead to cramps. If you lose a lot of fluid and salt through excessive sweating, you can get cramps. Stress may play a major role with cramps during the night. This is why we add vitamin D2 and Ashwagandha to Royal Green Magnesium. These ingredients both have a positive influence against stress.
One of the functions of magnesium in the body is to ensure that the body does not release too much calcium. Calcium is, among other things, responsible for small blood vessels to narrow. Poor blood flow to the hair cells could cause tinnitus because the cells do not receive sufficient oxygen and nutrients. A magnesium deficiency can therefore have an effect on tinnitus and may be the cause of hypersensitivity to noise. People in large cities are exposed daily to a large number of loud noises. Research shows that exposure to noise causes a magnesium deficiency in the body .
Magnesium protects the nerves in the inner ear and is a glutamate antagonist. Glutamate plays a role in the onset of tinnitus. Glutamate is a neurotransmitter and acts excitatory to the nerve cells in the brains. Research has shown that magnesium has a significant protective effect on the inner ear in the onset of tinnitus and hearing loss as a result of the exposure to noise .
Several studies have shown that there is a clear link between magnesium deficiency and depression. For example, one knows that people who suffer from depression usually have much lower magnesium levels in their bodies than people who are not depressed (Levine et al., 1999 ). It has also been shown that if extra magnesium is administered via the blood, the amount of depression symptoms is significantly reduced.
Magnesium is known to counteract palpitations and relaxes muscles and blood vessels, resulting in an anti‐ anxiety effect. Researchers have also shown that there is a strong connection between anxiety and a magnesium deficiency. Large research has shown that the more magnesium you ingest through food, the less you will suffer from anxiety symptoms (Hanus et al., 2003 ).
Doctors are prescribing magnesium since 1930 for heart disease. Patients receiving magnesium after a heart attack have a better chance of survival. In the second Leicester Intravenous Magnesium Intervention Trial (LIMIT‐ 2), a protocol was developed to administer magnesium as soon as possible after the occurrence of a heart attack, before administering other medications. This resulted in that damage to the heart muscle was strongly reduced and that the death rate dropped by 21% . The activity of magnesium in heart attacks is based on the following actions of this mineral: magnesium dilates blood vessels, prevents spasm in the blood vessels and heart muscle, helps to reduce blood clots, prevents cardiac arrhythmias and reduces the damage to the heart muscle and the formation of free radicals.
Magnesium is an important mineral for proper and uninterrupted sleep. Research shows that a magnesium deficiency causes changes in the electrical activity of the brains. This results in a sleep that is restless and interrupted.
Melvyn R. Werbach writes in an article in the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients’  that insomnia is one of the symptoms of magnesium deficiency, that has an effect on the central nervous system.  Other sleep disorders, such as night terrors, talking and uncontrolled movements in sleep, restless legs, may be related to a magnesium deficiency [9, 10].
