Magnesium Gluconate is the resulting combination of Magnesium and Gluconic Acid salt. Since Magnesium is needed for at least 300 different bodily reactions to take place, it is quite necessary to maintain high levels of it. As opposed to Magnesium Carbonate and Magnesium Citrate (the more common, cheaper varieties of Magnesium supplementation), Magnesium Gluconate has a notably high bioavailability.

Magnesium assists in the body’s ability to make use of glucose and is important in the process of transferring energy throughout the body. It keeps the heart healthy by dilating the arteries and blood vessels; without Magnesium, these vessels may begin to shrink and cause reduced blood flow.* Magnesium also maintains oral health and immune system operation.
As it turns out, Magnesium is a necessary component for all cells in the body to function normally. It also helps keep bones strong and durable and also establishes the normal function of muscles and nerves. Without Magnesium, it would be almost impossible to synthesize or metabolize proteins and energy correctly.
Serving Size & Timing
The recommended dosage of Magnesium Gluconate is 1300mg (1/2 tsp) to be taken once per day.
The FDA recommendation for total Magnesium consumption is 400mg per day. Since this solution is made up of 5.4% Magnesium total, this means that a serving size of 1300mg is really only equal to about 70mg of Magnesium overall, which is less than 20% the daily value as recommended by the FDA. Since Magnesium should be taken in a ratio of 1:2 with Calcium for the desired effects to truly take place, it is also best to take a supplement of Calcium equal to twice the amount of Magnesium you are taking as long as this amount is still safely within the daily recommendations for both.
