Why have you added Potassium?
The cardiovascular system needs Potassium and most people have a minor deficiency in Potassium. That is why a small amount of Potassium was added.
What is the dosage of the Magnesium?
We recommend two capsules a day.
Can I take half dose?
Yes, you could but you may not feel the full benefits as you would when taking the recommended dose.
Will there be any interactions with prescription medication?
There could be with some medication but unlikely. As usual, check with your Doctor.
What form of Magnesium is it?
It is a marine form derived from sea water so it has other beneficial trace elements included as well.
I get cramp and restless legs, will Magnesium help?
Magnesium is well known to help with these issues.

What does Magnesium do?
Magnesium support hundreds of different bio-chemical reactions in the body. The range of benefits are staggering from supporting nerve and muscle function, keeping the heart beat steady and even helping adjust blood glucose levels.
What does Potassium do?
Potassium helps support Magnesium but on its own it plays an important role for your heart and like magnesium supports your nerves and muscles.
Can I take your Magnesium when I am taking a supplement of yours that contains Magnesium? Will I overdose?
No, not at all. The levels of magnesium are quite low in our other supplements primarily due to the fact that magnesium is a bulky material.
Are there any side effects of this product?
No negative ones if taken at the correct dosage.
Is Magnesium good for mood?
Yes, this is a significant benefit of magnesium. There have been many studies that have shown magnesium to be as effective as an anti-depressant drug, and are within the recommended dose rates for Xtend-Life’s Marine Magnesium.
Does Magnesium create loose bowel movements?
Some forms of magnesium can cause those problems. Unlikely to experience that problem with the marine magnesium. If so, reduce to a half dose and then build up to the full dose.
What age can you take Magnesium?
From any age. Children from 9 - 18 years should take one cap a day. Children 4 - 8 years half a capsule.
Should I take it at night or morning?
For best results take after an evening meal.
I take my Magnesium at night but at the same time I take my prescription medication, is this a good idea?
It is always a good idea to leave a gap of 2 – 3 hours between medications and supplements.
Why have you started making a single supplement product?
Because magnesium is bulky and to get an optimum dose it requires two capsules for most adults. Because it is inexpensive we have left it for customers to purchase at their local health food shop, but because of customer demand and the desirability to take it with CX8 and the difficulty of getting a quality Magnesium with Potassium we have started producing it.
Will I overdose if I take Sleeping pills, knowing that magnesium helps you sleep?
You should never take sleeping pills for longer than a week as they can end up giving the opposite result long term. Best to try and go off the sleeping pills and try the magnesium on its own.
Are these vegan, vegetarian, gluten free?
Yes, they are.
If I take Magnesium will it cause kidney stones?
No, quite the opposite. It will help prevent them.
Can I take CX8 and Magnesium together?
We do not recommend that you take CX8 and Marine Magnesium with Potassium at the same time. This is because Magnesium may affect the efficacy of the Vitamin K2 ingredient which is present in CX8. Take CX8 in the morning if possible, as this increases your energy and then take the Magnesium at bedtime as it helps with sleep.
