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 to build DNA, RNA and many proteins. Despite its vast importance, it is a common deficiency 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 not to consider additional supplementation in most patients.
Magnesium Bis-glycinate is a form of magnesium that combines one molecule of magnesium 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 with other compounds. The presence of glycine also gives the molecule access to dipeptide transport sites. Ultimately, this leads to greater absorption and tolerability in the body.
Mag Bis-glycinate Full Chelate provides a pure, fully reacted amino acid chelate of magnesium bis-glycinate. This magnesium bis-glycinate is designed to offer the best absorbed magnesium and the gentlest delivery for patients with sensitive digestive tracts.
