Magnesium carbonate is a salt of the essential mineral, magnesium.
Dietary magnesium is required by every cell in the body and is a necessary component in hundreds of metabolic processes. Magnesium supports muscle, immune and nerve function, and energy transport. Magnesium functions as a cofactor in many biochemical reactions. Magnesium is also a coordinating ion for adenosine triphosphate (ATP) , the main carrier of metabolic energy in the body. Magnesium is also required for biosynthetic processes such as glycolysis, formation of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), energy-dependent membrane transport, and transmission of genetic code for protein synthesis.

Magnesium carbonate contains 29% elemental magnesium. In other words, for every molecule of magnesium carbonate, 29% is Magnesium. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends a daily intake of 400 milligrams elemental magnesium for adults. A serving of 1400 milligrams will yield 102% of the recommended daily value.
Because magnesium and calcium work synergistically, magnesium supplements should be taken simultaneously in a 1:2 ratio of magnesium to calcium, respectively. Thus, if you take 1000 milligrams of elemental magnesium, you should also take 2000 milligrams of calcium.
