For Healthcare Professionals
Magnesium deficiency is commonly seen in patients with type 2 diabetes, because high glucose
levels cause magnesium to be flushed from the body. In fact, 80% of type 2 diabetics
may have magnesium deficiency1.*
Signs of magnesium deficiency include:
Magnesium supplementation has been shown to be beneficial for:
- Leg Cramps
A growing body of research suggests prescription drug use and a magnesium-deficient diet may lead your patients to develop Drug/Diet-induced Nutrient Depletion (DIND)1-2-3.
- Insulin Sensitivity 2
- Glucose control 2
- Heart Health 3
DIND can be caused by electrolyte-depleting prescription drugs such as loop and thiazide diuretics, digoxin, amphotericin B, aminoglycosides, cisplatin, and cyclosporine. The disorder may also be the result of a diet that doesn't include enough magnesium-rich foods.
A low magnesium level isn't a trivial matter. Among the conditions associated with magnesium deficiency are hypertension and hypotension, muscle cramps, dysphagia, seizures, arrhythmias, coronary artery spasm, anemia, thrombosis, and migraines. That's why many of your patients could benefit from Mag-Ox.
A small tablet easy to swallow
Mag-Ox tablets are 35% smaller than magnesium chloride tablets (SLOW-MAG**), making it easier for patients to swallow. Additionally, Mag-Ox can be crushed and mixed with liquid or food.
Sugar, gluten, carb, and sodium free
Mag-Ox provides a concentrated amount of magnesium, without unwanted additives. This may be beneficial for those on restricted diets.
Most concentrated form of magnesium
Mag-Ox contains the most concentrated form of magnesium available, so that each tablet provides more
magnesium than any other leading brand. This leads to fewer and smaller tablets. For example, Mag-Ox has four times the amount of magnesium than magnesium chloride (SLOW-MAG**) yet the Mag-Ox tablet is 35% smaller.
Formulated for optimal absorption
Only Mag-Ox , by Health Care Products, provides the "Dissolution Difference." Dissolution is the amount
of the tablet that dissolves in hydrochloric acid, used to simulate acid found in the stomach. Higher
dissolution levels mean more magnesium is available for absorption by the body. Most generics have
dissolution levels under 50% per tablet†, which means that less than half of the generic magnesium tablet dissolves in the stomach.
Mag-Ox has been formulated to provide superior absorption by achieving a 99% dissolution
level†. This "Dissolution Difference" is another
component of the Pharmaceutical Grade quality of Mag-Ox. Accept nothing less than the superior
dissolution found in the Patent Pending formulation of Mag-Ox , by Health Care Products.
There are no AB-rate generic substitutes.
Pharmaceutical Grade quality
Mag-Ox is a Pharmaceutical Grade quality supplement. This means a production process is utilized that ensures purity and quality in every tablet. The Pharmaceutical Grade symbol signifies the use of premium raw materials, extensive laboratory testing, a current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) compliant facility, and quality-controlled packaging and shipping operations. Mag-Ox is continually screened by metal detection devices to ensure the final product is free of harmful contaminants. Although this control procedure is not required, it serves as an example of Health Care Products' commitment to its product quality and safety.
