Magnesium Citrate with Vitamin B6

Magnesium and vitamin B6 are involved in extensive interactions within the body as they work together in many enzyme systems.


Effective results have been seen in PMS using a combination of 200mg Magnesium and 50mg vitamin B6. Higher levels may be required depending upon diet and lifestyle factors.

Potential applications

Pre-menstrual tension, kidney stones, depression, hypertension, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), neuro-muscular/skeletal disorders, migraine, nausea in pregnancy, hyperhomocysteinemia, osteoporosis, diabetic neuropathy, asthma (B6 is needed for tryptophan > serotonin metabolism - known to be disordered in asthmatics).

Known contraindications

Those with kidney or heart disease should consult their physician before using magnesium supplements. Pregnant and breast-feeding women should not take more than 100 mg of vitamin B6 per day without a doctor's supervision.


Caution is required in those taking cardio-active medications such as diuretics, digitalis, and ACE inhibiting (BP lowering) drugs.

Use in conjunction with

  • PMS - Hemp seed oil, Agnus Castus, multi-phytonutrient complex, artichoke.
  • Aerobic exercise and stress management.


Citrate forms of minerals are an organic presentation to ensure effective delivery utilisation in the body. Citrates are actual components of the krebs cycle. Evidence suggests that minerals chelated to krebs cycle intermediates are far better absorbed, utilised, and tolerated than inorganic mineral forms such as carbonates, oxides, and chlorides.
