I have added the conclusions derived from digging a little deeper into Nano magnesium and encourage all to do some research and ask some qualified, technical people in the nutritional field before jumping on the marketing social media, nutritional network marketing bandwagon...Anyone on the Internet can make claims about anything, BUT can they back it up with solid science or human clinical trials or proven facts?????
In simple terms, the “Upgraded Magnesium”(by Upgraded Formulas) claim to be 100% bioavailable, directly absorbed Into the body – bypassing digestion - by using angstrom-size minerals”... is great marketing, but is lacking any solid science…
As Dr. Mark Kaye points out, "Magnesium has an atomic radius of approximately 1 angstrom. What do they mean "angstrom sized"? Compared to what?”… For example, nano magnesium may simply be (in this case) magnesium chloride in reverse-osmosis (mineral free) water. Is the only benefit that it is a liquid versus pill?”…
The ingredients listed in the “Upgraded Magnesium” are magnesium as chloride (a decently utilized form of magnesium), plus reverse-osmosis (mineral free) water. Nothing else.
As is pointed out below, "All Magnesium supplements are a combination of Magnesium with another substance such as a salt.”… The ingredient lists the “Upgraded Magnesium” as magnesium chloride (magnesium bonded to chloride)… So, based on eveything I can find, the “Upgraded Magnesium” is merely a decent form of magnesium suspended in a (mineral free) water… Nothing to indicate a advantage over any other comparable form of magnesium in either tablet, capsule or powder form.
There are no research studies on their site, or that I can find, documenting a “enhanced uptake” of their "angstrom-size minerals and a patented zero point technology" as compared to any good form of magnesium.
In fact their only suggested "Proof of effectiveness", is to do a clinical hair analysis before and after 3-6 months of supplementation. (please note that "Hair Trace Mineral analysis” is not considered a reliable assessment of magnesium status and even if of some value, it would only be of interest as compared to a good form of natural magnesium such a magnesium glycinate or citrate)
