Great for: supporting energy production, electrolyte balance, muscle function, cell division, nervous system function, healthy bones and teeth, as well as normal psychological function
Magnesium is a vital mineral involved in over 300 enzyme reactions in the body, supporting a wide range of physiological functions from energy production and central nervous system function to supporting muscular and cardiovascular function and hydration. It is estimated that around 60% of people in Europe and the USA get less than the recommended daily amount of magnesium.
Since there are many factors that affect how well magnesium is absorbed, it can be challenging to benefit from supplementation. Igennus nutrition scientists have carefully formulated Triple Magnesium Complex to enhance magnesium absorption and deliver a powerful trio of magnesium forms. Each form we’ve included is known for strong bioavailability and each carrier (citrate, taurate & bisglycinate) offers distinct health benefits. Thanks to several unique features of this formula, Triple Magnesium Complex delivers higher levels of magnesium into the body to ensure you are obtaining sufficient levels of magnesium in your diet.
Each daily serving provides 195 mg of elemental magnesium from 1893 mg magnesium citrate, taurate & bisglycinate. One bottle provides 90 capsules, or a 1-month supply at the recommended divided daily dose of 3-per-day.

Triple Magnesium Complex is an advanced blend of fully reacted magnesium citrate, taurate and bisglycinate chelate, formulated to optimise bioavailability and improve absorption of this important mineral, helping you to meet your daily nutritional needs. These magnesium forms are able to cross the blood/brain barrier and ensure higher bioavailability to the body and brain. Taking multiple forms of magnesium increases the amount of magnesium absorbed, as this utilises multiple magnesium uptake pathways and, together with split dosing 3 times daily, avoids exceeding the rate at which each form of magnesium can be absorbed.
Many factors affect how well magnesium is absorbed. These include the magnesium form, its bioavailability, whether it’s fully reacted or not, the dose – not to mention the variation in how able individuals may be to digest. Igennus nutrition scientists have carefully formulated Triple Magnesium Complex to enhance magnesium absorption by addressing the following:
Magnesium is a vital mineral involved in over 300 enzyme reactions in the body, fulfilling a wide range of physiological functions from energy production and central nervous system function, to supporting muscular and cardiovascular function and hydration. Its principal roles:
Supporting energy production: magnesium plays a role in converting carbohydrates, proteins and fat into energy for the cells, and is even required to help the body convert the short-chain omega-3 fatty acids obtained from the diet, to the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, important for those relying on plant-based sources of omega-3.
Supporting cell division: rejuvenates and builds bodily tissue including skin, muscle and bone, essential for recovery.
Supporting muscle function: allows for contraction and relaxation of muscles, which in turn facilitates movement, as well as supporting the muscles of the heart and regulating the heartbeat.
Supporting normal psychological function: magnesium is one of the essential nutrients, along with zinc and vitamin B6, required for neurotransmitter production, with a deficiency of magnesium associated with anxiety.
Supporting electrolyte balance: as one of the most abundant electrolytes in the body, magnesium is one of the essential minerals required to allow water to enter and hydrate the cells, as well as carrying an electrical charge needed for nerve impulses.
Magnesium must be consumed regularly to prevent deficiency, and despite its prevalence in natural whole foods (mineral water, legumes, nuts, seeds and leafy greens), it is estimated that around 50% of people in Europe and the USA get less than the recommended daily amount of magnesium. Several features of our modern lifestyle, cooking methods and intensive industrial farming mean that we are obtaining less-than-optimal amounts of magnesium from food. The increased proportion of processed foods compared with whole foods mean, quite simply, that there is a lower content of magnesium in our daily food.
Low magnesium in the diet is further compounded by several features of the modern lifestyle that inhibit our ability to absorb even the magnesium we do eat! Of the total dietary magnesium consumed, between around 24–76% is absorbed in the gut and the rest is eliminated in the faeces. Issues with digestion, including disrupted stomach acid levels (too high/too low), as well as stress and ageing, all further impair magnesium absorption in the GI tract. Individuals with these circumstances may have even greater need for magnesium.
To summarise, unless we are eating organic whole foods on an almost daily basis, have optimal digestion and are not stressed, experiencing ill health or the enhanced needs of an ageing body, our daily nutritional needs for magnesium are likely not met by food alone. When the body doesn’t obtain sufficient magnesium from the diet, it releases magnesium from the bones (>52% of the body’s magnesium is stored in bones, and the rest in the body’s soft tissue, mainly muscles and organs), and the magnesium content of bone – acting as a reservoir for maintaining magnesium homeostasis – decreases with age.
If you are interested to see whether your magnesium intake from food is sufficient, it is possible to track your nutritional intake using Apps such as Chronometer – inputting your typical foods over a 5-day period for example. Controversy exists over the validity of current magnesium nutritional testing, so this is not something Igennus nutrition scientists currently recommend.
Different forms of magnesium (magnesium ideally fully reacted to its carriers) are absorbed in different ways and offer different benefits. Each form we’ve chosen is very bioavailable, and together these forms raise magnesium levels effectively. The carriers we use also provide their own benefits.
Each different form not only has different levels of elemental magnesium (the actual fraction that is magnesium, not bulk), but also different bioavailability. This is why what can appear to be high dose magnesium, is not always very effective: commonly available magnesium oxide, for example, contains 60% elemental magnesium, but its bioavailability is only around 4%! In comparison, magnesium glycinate is only 18% elemental magnesium, but 80% bioavailability! Just looking at the elemental magnesium dose, therefore, is no indicator of what is actually absorbed in the body.
Adults: take 3 capsules daily with food. For optimal absorption, it is recommended to divide the daily dose – morning, afternoon and evening. Do not exceed the dose unless advised by a healthcare practitioner.
