Magnesium is an essential mineral and electrolyte that the human body needs for just about everything. Used in a over 300 enzymatic functions, magnesium is needed for healthy blood glucose regulation, proper neural function, the formation of both DNA and RNA, ATP energy production, oxidative phosphorylation, muscle contraction and pumping your heart.

It’s been shown for years that Americans do not get the magnesium we need in our diets for a variety of reasons. Pairing low dietary intake with lifestyle factors that deplete magnesium, and deficiencies in vitamin D needing magnesium to absorb, and you have a recipe for disaster.

Magnesium deficiency has been linked to many health disorders. These include heart diseases, hypertension, chronic pain, headaches, migraines, impaired blood glucose regulation, improper insulin functioning, low energy, impaired cognitive function, mental health issues and more.

Recent studies are showing urgency for ensuring that you are getting enough magnesium in your diet.

  • A 2015 study of 8894 subjects found that low magnesium intake was associated with depression individuals under the age of 65 [1].
  • A study released in April 2018 showed that oral magnesium supplementation improved blood glucose, lipid regulation, insulin stimulation and anti-inflammatory effects in diabetic animals [2].
  • Yet another April 2018 study showed that low magnesium intake was associated with insulin resistance in otherwise healthy adults [3].
  • A 2016 study showed low serum magnesium levels to be an independent factor in migraine attacks [4].

If you like many are either taking part in or interested in starting a Ketogenic diet for its many health benefits- it’s important that you ensure that you are getting an adequate amount of magnesium in your diet every day as getting enough is often one of the struggles that many people find once they start the diet. 

It’s recommended that men should aim for 400 to 420 milligrams of magnesium per day, and that women have a daily intake goal of 310 to 320 mg of magnesium.

Here’s the problem for those on a keto diet: many magnesium-carrying foods are high in carbs. Cereal, beans, gluten-laden bread, potatoes, and rice, all of which contain modest amounts of magnesium are off limits.

Within the first few weeks of starting a low carbohydrate or ketogenic diet, you may notice certain symptoms of the “keto flu”. There are many reasons for this happening but some of the symptoms may be due to a loss in magnesium.

In the first few weeks of a low carbohydrate diet, you can lose a lot more water from the body. As glycogen is stored in the body as one-part glycogen and three parts water, it means that more water is dumped through the kidneys. Since magnesium levels are controlled through the kidneys, this can then inadvertently cause a drop-in serum magnesium levels.

The question becomes how to reach the daily recommended levels of magnesium on a keto diet. While there are keto friendly foods such as avocado, nuts, and spinach that are reasonable sources of magnesium, they are not enough. The amounts needed to reach your RDA for magnesium becomes problematic ie keeping your carbohydrate levels low enough to stay in ketosis. For one cup of avocado contains 11% of your daily magnesium 44mg. While one cup of avocado contains 12g of carbs it would take almost 10 times the amount of carbs to reach your daily recommended amount of magnesium. 

The option which is easier for most people is to simply get your daily magnesium through supplementation. Taking a supplement allows you to simply and easily ensure that you are giving your body what it needs to be healthy and function properly. Also ensuring that some of the negative side effects that some people experience on the ketogenic diet are mitigated. 

There are of course a wide variety of brands and forms of magnesium available on the market for you to choose. However we believe that our mineral supplement is different from the rest and we would love to take a moment and lay out what makes our product so unique and powerful for people on the ketogenic diet.

It all comes down to our source. OmniBlue minerals are true natural minerals that are sustainably solar harvested from the purest waters near the Great Barrier Reef. These waters are unique in how they are constantly being fed by undersea springs which introduce new minerals into the water from under the earth's crust. 

These minerals are in their most perfect, most bioavailable form. The same form that has sustained all of life since the very beginning. Notice also that we say minerals and not just magnesium. While magnesium is the most plentiful mineral in OmniBlue with 440mg in each teaspoon. The magnesium in OmniBlue is also supported synergistically by 70+ other trace minerals also found in ocean water. The human body works best when it has a full complement of all the essential major and trace minerals present and in these exact proportions. 

This is illustrated by the fact that the mineral content of human blood is almost identical to the ratios found in ocean water. The human body does not single out minerals in vacuum. It is a delicate balance of all the minerals working together to fuel the processes of the body. OmniBlue is the ONLY mineral supplement which contains this balance of magnesium and trace minerals. 

There are other products which market themselves as magnesium and trace mineral supplements. However, the main difference is that these products are all mined from inland seas. These salt lakes have been separated from the sea for 11,000 years. These island seas have become like stopped up sinks that you cannot unplug. Risking absorption all of the runoff from human and animal waste, as well as multiple mining operations that have dotted the region. They are no longer balanced and renewed by natural sea springs. The beautiful balance of nature has been lost. This source of magnesium has been favored by industry for its ease of mining and low cost. We believe however, that it’s worth a little more time and effort to bring you the best minerals on earth, because we are all worth that!

OmniBlue is also beautiful in its form and simplicity. It comes in a liquid form which is best when blended with any kind of food or drink. Just a teaspoon's worth gives your body everything it needs. You can choose to mix it with your morning coffee, portion it into your baked goods, blend it into your soups, or add a couple of drops to each bottle of water you drink to remineralize it. 

Unlike other magnesium products OmniBlue doesn’t contain any sweeteners artificial or otherwise. In fact it's as simple as minerals and water. Nothing more. It doesn’t go bad, and it loves the heat and cold. No temperature of food it’s placed in will ever cause it to lose its potency. 

The biggest testament of all for OmniBlue is how many customers of ours have made OmniBlue a part of their daily health routine and continue to use OmniBlue month after month. There is no diet which better illustrates the need for magnesium in your diet than keto. So don’t suffer with needless negative symptoms and for once feel like how your body was supposed to feel. Running off of ketogenic energy pathways and supported with a full complement of magnesium and trace minerals from the original source.
