Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for our health. It is necessary for maintaining proper nerve and muscle function through its regulation of calcium, creating cellular energy in the mitochondria and also acting as a cofactor for synthesizing DNA, RNA and other essential proteins. Despite its vast importance, magnesium is commonly deficient in the Canadian population due to poor diet, medication depletions and stress. Suboptimal magnesium levels create a pro-inflammatory state within the body with numerous health implications.
As more research continues to build regarding the benefits of magnesium in human health, it is difficult to ignore additional supplementation in most patients. Clinical trials and large-scale evidence continues to demonstrate that magnesium supplementation can be helpful in cases of muscle tension, fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, attention-deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), cardiovascular disease, dementia, osteoporosis, migraines and other conditions.
Magnesium Bis-glycinate is a chelated form of magnesium that combines one molecule of the essential mineral with 2 molecules of the inhibitory amino acid glycine. This chelated bond is advantageous as it remains stable throughout the digestive tract, preventing magnesium from binding to other compounds and granting access to dipeptide transport sites. Ultimately, this leads to greater absorption and tolerability in the body.
Magnesium Bis-glycinate provides a pure, fully reacted amino acid chelate of magnesium bis-glycinate, with 300mg of elemental magnesium per tablespoon. This potent magnesium bis-glycinate blend is found in liquid form for convenient dosing and it is unflavoured with minimal additional ingredients.
