Supports healthy muscle function.
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady and bones strong. It is also involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
With respect to skeletal muscles, a magnesium deficiency can cause twitches, cramps, muscle tension, muscle soreness – including back aches, neck pain, tension headaches and jaw joint (TMJ) dysfunction. Magnesium allows muscles to relax alleviating many of these symptoms.
MagSense is an easy-to-take powder and provides an efficiently-absorbed and well-tolerated form of magnesium. MagSense contains magnesium glycinate, allowing for faster and more efficient absorption, as well as taurine, glycine, vitamin B6, malic acid and other muscle supportive ingredients.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Is there a benefit to choosing the bisglycinate form of magnesium?
Magnesium bisglycinate is a magnesium bound to the amino acid glycine making it more absorbable. Magnesium bisglycinate is also gentler on the system and less likely to cause diarrhea.
I have Restless Leg Syndrome and understand that MagSense might help me? How much should I take?
We would suggest increasing the daily intake of MagSense to 2 scoops maximum, in divided doses (ie/ 1 scoop in the morning and 1 scoop mid-afternoon), which hopefully will provide relief for Restless Leg Syndrome.
Is MagSense gluten free?
Yes, we do have confirmation on file that there is no gluten added and no gluten present in the MagSense formula. However, our manufacturing facility is NOT a gluten free facility, and as we do process products that contain gluten we are unable to confirm 100% that there is no possibility of cross contamination.
Can I add my powdered product to hot water in order to help it dissolve better?
Adding your powdered product to room temperature or slightly warmer water to dissolve it before adding it to juice or cold water should be fine, however we do not recommend adding it to boiling or very hot water because by doing so will likely affect its efficacy.
I have purchased a powdered product, but it went very hard on me. Do you know how I can make it soft again? Is this common?
Yes, this is common, especially if the lid is not tightly secured after each use since there is then the possibility of moisture getting into the container. Moisture in the container causes the product to clump and/or go hard. Try using a spoon to break up the product and make sure you secure the lid tightly after each use. There are also desiccants in the containers that are intended to help with this issue.
Why isn’t my container of powdered product full? Am I being ripped off?
When the containers are initially filled they are actually full, however once the product has been sealed and shipped out, the contents of the container (the powder in this case) will begin to settle and become more compressed and then, upon opening, it will appear that the powder is no longer filling the whole container or that the containers we are using are too big. This is not the case, and it is quite normal for any powdered product to settle during shipping. You can rest assured that each scoop of powder will still contain the nutritional information, exactly as indicated on the label.
