Magnesium is an abundant mineral in the body that is necessary for many organs and tissues to function properly. Eighty percent of Canadians are deficient in this important mineral. Deficiency has been implicated in cardiovascular disease, behavioral problems, diabetes, chronic fatigue, migraine headaches, muscular complaints, osteoporosis and PMS. We cannot get our daily requirement from food.

Cardiovascular Disease
Epidemiologic studies have linked low magnesium and the increased frequency of heart disease and cardiovascular deaths. High blood pressure is associated with low magnesium levels and simply adding magnesium will aid normalization of blood pressure, especially in women.

Behavioural Problems
Magnesium deficiency occurs more frequently in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) than in healthy children. Studies show that magnesium supplementation reduces ADHD symptoms in children. In one such study, a combination of magnesium and vitamin B6 was shown to reduce symptoms such as physical aggressiveness, instability, and poor attention at school in all study participants (52 children) after one to six months of treatment. Magnesium, together with vitamin B6, may also be beneficial for autistic patients. While no cure for autism is known, magnesium and B6 supplementation has led to remarkable improvement in many cases. MagsmartTM contains this combination.

Diabetes/Metabolic Syndrome
Magnesium plays a major role in the action of insulin. Magnesium supplements improve insulin response and glucose tolerance.

Chronic Fatigue
Studies have shown that up to 91 percent of 3,000 patients with chronic fatigue improved with magnesium and potassium supplementation. The beneficial effects were often seen after only four to five days of treatment.

Headaches/Migraine
Headaches due to muscle tension are associated with low magnesium. To evaluate the effects of supplemental magnesium, 81 patients with migraines (average attack frequency 3.6 per month) were given magnesium glycinate or placebo for 12 weeks. By weeks nine to 12, the attack frequency was reduced by 42 percent in the magnesium group compared to 16 percent in the placebo group.

Muscular Complaints
All muscles need magnesium to relax. A deficiency in magnesium increases muscle tension, muscle cramps, tics, restless leg syndrome, night muscle spasms and twitches.

Osteoporosis
Research indicates that magnesium is as important as calcium in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Magnesium affects mineral metabolism in bone by a combination of effects on hormones and other factors that regulate bone health. Magnesium improves the action of cells that build bone and reduces the action of cells that break down bone.

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Several studies show magnesium is essential for the management of PMS (weight gain, swelling, breast tenderness, and abdominal bloating) and PMS-related mood changes.

Which Magnesium Is Best?
Magnesium supplements are available in numerous salt forms as well as amino acid chelates. Magnesium oxide and citrates can cause diarrhea and are poorly absorbed. The magnesium in MAGsmart? is bound to the amino acid glycinate. This makes the magnesium better absorbed and it does not cause diarrhea. MAGsmartTM also contains B vitamins, taurine and other important nutrients for overall health. "

About the vendor
Kerrisdale Pharmacy
Vancouver, BC
Kerrisdale Pharmacy was established in the early 1970's by pharmacist Romeo Goulet and was subsequently sold to pharmacist Odie McNeil.

In November 1981, Michael Holyk made the trip west from his home in Westlock, Alberta (where he owned Holyk Super Drug Mart) and purchased the pharmacy from McNeil.

At this time the pharmacy was located in its original site at 2142 West 41st Avenue in Kerrisdale and measured only 2000 square feet.

Michael’s son Colin graduated from the Faculty of Pharmacy at UBC in 1990 and joined the team at the pharmacy. Seven years later, they undertook the move to their new (and current) location at 5591 West Boulevard. Shortly thereafter, Michael and Colin added a second pharmacy to the family when they purchased Hollyburn Pharmacy in West Vancouver, BC.

After 10 years in the new location they decided to renovate Kerrisdale Pharmacy, so they took over the next door site, expanded the pharmacy, added a medical clinic, and completed a floor to ceiling renovation - staying open the whole time through the construction dust and disruption in order to provide the top notch service that their clients had become accustomed to. A daunting task to say the least!

Shortly after moving the pharmacy in the 1990’s, pharmacist Eugene Mar joined the team and now shares the management duties of the pharmacy as Assistant Pharmacy Manager.

Since this time, Colin and Eugene have helped turn the pharmacy into a neighbourhood icon thanks to their diligent focus on comprehensive health care, a wide scope of services including compounding, and good, honest empathy for each person who walks through their door.
