An ion is a mineral that carries a charge, which can either be positive or negative. This puts the mineral in an unstable ionic state – it either has one too many or one too few positive electrons.
Unstable electrons are constantly looking to bond with other compounds. This property means that ionic minerals bond very quickly with water in the body. This allows the body, which is 67% water, to absorb ionic minerals a whole lot faster than non-ionized minerals.
In order for a mineral to be fully absorbed by the body, it must be in an ionized form. The vast majority of minerals are absorbed in the small intestine. It is here that they pass into the bloodstream. However, according to Alexander Schauss, Ph.D, senior director of research for AIBMR Life Sciences, the process can only take place if the minerals are ionized . . .
“Trace minerals do not exist by themselves but in relationship to one another. Too much of one trace element can lead to imbalances in others…Most trace elements need to be in ionic form to be well absorbed in the intestine.” (Healthy Cells for Life; Ionic Minerals)
Absorption is the Key to Good Health
Getting the minerals that your body needs into your system is a good start. However, unless those minerals are efficiently released into the bloodstream and made available to the body, they will not be of any use to you
Below we address potential magnesium deficient symptoms, along with some startling statistics regarding this mineral.
Possible Symptoms From Magnesium Deficiency
According to Elephant Journal, you might be magnesium deficient if you have any of the following symptoms: muscle cramps or twitches, irritability, sensitivity to loud noises.

These are broad symptoms and can be caused by many different things. Saying that, understanding the high frequency of magnesium deficiency may be an issue that you are currently overlooking if you are showing any symptoms mentioned in the Elephant Journal.
The Huffington Post States:
“In our society, magnesium deficiency is a huge problem. By conservative standards of measurement (blood, or serum, magnesium levels), 65 percent of people admitted to the intensive care unit — and about 15 percent of the general population — have magnesium deficiency.
But this seriously underestimates the problem, because a serum magnesium level is the LEAST sensitive way to detect a drop in your total body magnesium level. So rates of magnesium deficiency could be even higher!
The reason we are so deficient is simple: Many of us eat a diet that contains practically no magnesium — a highly-processed, refined diet that is based mostly on white flour, meat, and dairy (all of which have no magnesium).”

Recommended Daily Magnesium Intake
400-420 mg/day – MEN
310-320 mg/day – WOMEN

Good State’s Liquid Ionic Magnesium
This professional-grade liquid ionic mineral dietary supplement is made from the mineral magnesium, element #12 on the periodic table, which has been reduced to nano-sized particles for better absorption into the body. These ultra-concentrated magnesium particles can be described in picometer, nanometer, or angstrom in size.
Good State ionic minerals are formulated to have a very high absorption rate at the cellular level, while similar products’ mineral absorption rate can be very low.
This product was designed and formulated to Give Your Body What It Needs for a Good State of Health™ by helping support over 500 chemical and enzymatic reactions in the body needed for life. Research shows that more than 78% of US adults are failing to meet the RDA for magnesium.
Magnesium can work closely with calcium to help promote healthy bones. Magnesium can also play an important role in regulating blood pressure.
A lack of magnesium can cause metabolic changes that may contribute to heart attacks and strokes.
Low body levels of magnesium can increase the risk of abnormal heart rhythms, which may increase the risk of complications associated with the heart.
Population surveys have associated higher blood levels of magnesium with lower risk of coronary heart problems. This product is suitable for vegetarians. Good State Ionic Magnesium is made in the USA.
