Getting essential nutrients in our diets is becoming harder and harder.  The typical Western diet is very low in vegetables which is where most minerals are found and those who are eating more vegetables than the average person are generally not consuming organically grown vegetables, but more hydroponically grown vegetables, typically found in supermarkets.


Sure, there are many pros in hydroponically grown vegetables such as that it saves you space, water, having to weed the garden and fewer pests and disease however; you miss out on the soil organisms that sit on the roots of soil-grown organic vegetables that are essential for other aspects of health.


Minerals are obtained mainly from plant sources, especially organic plant sources.  Deficiencies in minerals is becoming more prevalent in the Western diets and have been associated with many common disorders and disease symptoms.  Many processing techniques employed today in modern food preparation deplete foods of vital nutrients which include minerals and is one of the main reasons processed foods have to be fortified with minerals.  Zinc is one of the most dominant minerals used in the fortification of foods these days due to it being deficient in most processed foods.


This is why ATP Science specifically formulated Z-MAG, to provide essential minerals for some very important metabolic processes such as:

  • Promoting energy levels
  • Muscle relaxation which would benefit many systems such as the musculoskeletal system and supporting cardiovascular health
  • Increasing the quality of sleep
  • Decreasing muscle pains and aches
  • Mild relaxation
  • Helps/support bone health and mineralisation
  • Helps convert food into energy
  • Helps promote and improve immune function
  • Maintain/support nervous system health
  • Helps support cognitive and mental function
  • Helps the synthesis of neurotransmitters



Magnesium Citrate bound to a citrate molecule and plays a role in energy production, bone mass and may help to relieve nervous tension.  It is an important mineral needed to regulate other minerals such as Vitamin D and calcium.  Best known for its function as a muscle relaxant, to help assist with mild cramps, spasms and tight muscles.


Zinc Glunconate one of the most common deficiencies in the Western world, which is worrying as it is essential in hundreds of enzymatic reactions within the body.  It also plays a role in immune function, which helps fight illness.


Organic Selenium – Selenium exists in two forms namely inorganic selenium (selenate and selenite) found in soil and organic selenium (selenomethionine and selenocysteine) found in plants after it has been taken up by the plant root system and converted into the organic form.  ATP Science Z-MAG contains the organic form of selenium, which is  important in immune system function.


Taurine is considered a semi-essentail nutrient because it is abundant in meat and most humans do consume meat however;  if you do not eat meat regularly you may be lacking in Taurine.  Taurine is needed to keep magnesium inside the cells and calcium outside the cells, which is needed for healthy muscle contraction, but it is also the most abundant amino acid found in leukocytes, which form part of the immune system and is needed to fight illness.
