        Hypomagnesaemia is an abnormally low level of magnesium in the blood.  Hypomagnesaemia is prevalent among hospitalized and chronically or critically ill patients. 

        Magnesium deficiency is an inadequate intake of dietary magnesium or impaired absorption of magnesium. Magnesium deficiency is uncommon.

        Hypomagnesaemia and magnesium deficiency are not the same - and one can occur without the other. 

        Symptoms of hypomagnesaemia and magnesium deficiency include electrolyte imbalances, neuromuscular and central nervous system disorders, cardiovascular symptoms, asthma, migraines, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and other clinical symptoms.

        Latest Research


        Does ANR magnesium come in the TransMins 2 product line?
        No, our TransMins 2 products are tablets bound in fiber to aid digestion. Due to magnesium's "laxative" effects, fiber is unnecessary in aiding magnesium's digestion.

        Does magnesium help with PMS symptoms?
        The evidence is not yet conclusive. As early as 1991, researchers in Italy concluded that magnesium supplementation could represent an effective treatment of premenstrual symptoms, including mood changes. [1]  In 2010, an Iranian study those women taking magnesium and Vitamin B6 had the greatest decrease in PMS symptoms, followed by those taking magnesium only, and the least decrease by those taking a placebo.
