The Ultimate Magnesium Supplement
Wellgard Magnesium Blend is gentle on the stomach, non-laxative and highly absorbable. Magnesium plays important roles throughout the body, including energy release, muscle function, psychological function and maintenance of bones and teeth.
Magnesium is one of the seven essential vitamins dubbed macro minerals. That means the body requires over 100 mg a day for peak efficiency. Magnesium is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body; it not only contributes to reduced tiredness and fatigue but also helps with the normal function of our muscles and nervous system. What's more, it helps to maintain normal bones and teeth and even to normal psychological function.
Wellgard Ultimate Magnesium Blend uses an expertly formulated blend of two magnesium salts, namely Magnesium Oxide and Magnesium Citrate, to help reduce the risk of irritating the digestive tract.
Magnesium citrate is the most popular Magnesium supplement, because it is very easily absorbed. In large doses, Magnesium Citrate can have a laxative effect that's why we have carefully combined two forms of magnesium to ensure high absorption rate whilst being gentle on the stomach.
We all count on Calcium for bone health – but that’s just the start.
Wellgard Ultimate Calcium & Magnesium combines Calcium with important co-factors like Vitamin D and Magnesium, which contribute to the maintenance of normal bones. The addition of Phosphorus, Manganese, and Selenium provides nutritional support that goes beyond your bones.
Vegans can have peace of mind knowing that Wellgard Ultimate Magnesium Blend is 100% vegan. The formula is free from animal products or derivatives, gluten, wheat, yeast, milk, lactose, soy, artificial flavours, artificial sweeteners, preservatives.
Wellgard was created to celebrate integrity in its most humble and true form. We only use ingredients that either directly benefit your wellbeing or support the integrity of our formulations. So go ahead and look under the bonnet—we want you to.

Yes, magnesium is a metal! Weird, right?
The same metal that’s used to make heat-resistant bricks for fireplaces and furnaces helps our bodies to run normally.
Magnesium is a trace metal, which means that although it is important for overall health, we don’t need large amounts of it.
Magnesium benefits many enzymes in the body, some of which are responsible for converting the food you eat into energy.
Women need 270mg a day, while breast-feeding women need an extra 50mg a day. Men need 300mg a day.
That’s about the amount found in 30g of pumpkin seeds, an avocado, a banana or an 80g portion of spinach.
Magnesium deficiency is rare as it is found in so many of the foods we eat every day. Our kidneys also help to regulate magnesium levels in the body by limiting the amount we lose when we urinate.
Early signs and symptoms of magnesium deficiency include:
Symptoms of a moderate deficiency include numbness, tingling and an abnormal heart rhythm.
If you eat a balanced diet with a wide range of foods every day, you should get all the magnesium you need.
However, you can take magnesium as a supplement if you think you’re lacking or deficient.
You can get all the magnesium you need from your diet during pregnancy.
However, a 2017 report in Advanced Biomedical Research found that many pregnant women are deficient in this mineral.
Ask your GP for a blood test if you think you may have low levels of magnesium.
It doesn’t really matter what time you take magnesium supplements, unless you plan on using them to help you sleep.
Take magnesium 1-2 hours before going to bed if you want to use it as a sleep aid.
Make sure you take magnesium supplements with a meal.
Due to its laxative effects, you should avoid taking it on an empty stomach or in-between meals or you may have some tummy troubles.
