Jigsaw Health was started by Pat Sullivan (father) and Patrick Sullivan Jr. (son). Pat struggled on and off with various health challenges for over 30 years. Fatigue, insomnia, gastrointestinal problems and depression. All difficult to overcome. But along the way, he found answers and saw the benefits magnesium can have for sleep and energy as well as helping with muscle cramps.
“Figuring out causes of my own health problems always felt like solving a puzzle. Thus the company name, Jigsaw Health.” – Pat Sullivan
The World Health Organisation states that 75% of the world population do not reach the recommended daily intake of magnesium.
Jigsaw Health believe the reason is due to lack of education on what Magnesium does and its essential role within the body. They’ve made it their mission to provide Magnesium “edu-tainment” (educational entertainment) content as well as provide a literal solution with their magnesium supplements.
Since 2005 Jigsaw Health, “The Magnesium People,” have been developing science-based food supplements with a focus on Magnesium featuring Sustained Release Technology (w/SRT®), which controls the release of active ingredients so absorption can happen over time.
MagSRT® by Jigsaw Health is clinically shown to increase Magnesium in the body.
MagSRT® was evaluated in the Scottsdale Magnesium Study, a placebo-controlled, human clinical trial of 91 participants. The study measured Serum Magnesium, Red Blood Cell (RBC) Magnesium, and Magnesium Deficiency symptoms. The results are published in the peer-reviewed Journal of the American College of Nutrition (JACN).
So, why buy Jigsaw Health?
Answered by co-founder & CEO, Pat Sullivan.
“Essentially, we’ve created the supplements that I wished I had when I was suffering from chronic, recurrent illnesses.
If you’re anything like me, two things drive your search for answers and solutions:
- You know your conditions are real (and you’re not the only one suffering from them).
- You know that “cause and effect” is a law of nature — there has to be a reason (or reasons) WHY your health went downhill. Therefore, there HAS to be a way to get better.
At Jigsaw Health, we deeply believe, and affirm, both these statements.
We understand that you’re searching for alternative health products that are based on sound science and that are effective for real people who’ve had your health challenges.
In my own search, I ended up with an entire roomful of mostly ineffective products. While I avoided the blatantly false, “miracle cure” products, I routinely bought supplements that seemed like they would be effective. However, most of them ended up doing nothing for me.
Through those (many) expensive lessons, I learned what to watch out for in the supplement industry. And I started to consciously look for only the highly absorbable and bio-available forms of nutrients being studied in the scientific literature. Then, as products proved effective — if I felt noticeably better from taking them — I added them to the “short list” of my arsenal to get (and stay) well.
The products we offer at Jigsaw Health — compared to the hundreds, in some cases thousands, of products sold by most health food and vitamin companies — are the ones that made my personal list. They are the nutrients that worked in the labs AND worked to make a dramatic difference in my own health.
You might be wondering, “If these nutrients worked well, then why not just keep using those products?… In other words, why start your own supplement company?“
Well, I was frustrated. Many of the nutrients that worked for me were either very expensive, very obscure and hard to obtain consistently, or still had room for improvement in my opinion. (Some fell into all 3 of those problematic categories!)
And so was born my desire to provide these products — in the highest quality, most potent formulations possible — all from one easily accessible source so that others can find them too and start feeling better.”
