Wassen International always recommed that those suffering from a medical condition or on medication consult their doctor prior to taking any food supplements to ensure they are suitable.
We would recommend that anyone on any type of heart or high blood pressure medication check with their doctor prior to taking any food supplements. In the case of taking additional magnesium it would be advisable to have a regular check-up with the doctor to ensure that the level of medication will not need to be adjusted.
If you are taking other food supplements please ensure that the daily safety limit for the active ingredients of the products is not exceeded.
Provided renal function is normal it is difficult to overdose with magnesium from dietary intakes. It is generally recommended that the daily intake level of magnesium for the short-term is in the region of 400 mg whilst long-term use of this mineral should remain in the 300 mg region, if self-supplementing.
It would certainly be acceptable to take a calcium food supplement in combination with Magnesium-B. Please check though, that the calcium supplement does not already contain magnesium, as a number of formulas do. It may be a good idea to take calcium and magnesium at a different time of day as with many minerals they may well compete for absorption.
It is important that those planning pregnancy or pregnant obtain proper dietary advice. Healthy eating should form the basis of good nutrition. Studies carried out in Germany and the US indicate that sufficient magnesium intake is important during pregnancy.
Whilst all ingredients found in Magnesium-B are deemed safe for food supplements, which are classed as a food, we always recommend that those planning pregnancy, who are pregnant or breast-feeding consult their doctor prior to taking any food supplements.

Wassen International has researched and introduced many new problem solving nutritional supplements over the last thirty years. The portfolio of products contains a thoughtfully formulated range, containing research proven ingredients, to meet the needs of today.
In theory, a varied well-balanced diet should provide all the daily nutrients necessary for good health but, in reality, this is often not the case. The fast paced world in which we live and work continues to take its toll. Food sourcing and farming methods affect the vital intake of minerals. For example, the amount of selenium, an essential trace mineral, in the UK diet is half what it was 30 years ago. Additionally the effects of pollution and an increasing reliance on convenience foods, can affect the daily intake of vital nutrients. Regular supplementation with vitamins and minerals can help to maintain essential nutrient levels within the body.
Research remains the cornerstone for all Wassen supplements. Nutrition is a comparatively new science and new studies continue to build on the understanding of the way in which nutrients, or lack of them, play a role in our lives. Relying on sound scientific studies to provide the guidance for ingredients, the products contain synergistic combinations of nutrients that help consumers address their health concerns. The company is constantly seeking to develop new innovative supplements.
