    Product Description

    • Hypo-allergenic Dietary Supplement

    Magnesium in aspartate, citrate, citrate/malate, and glycinate forms are highly bioavailable magnesium chelates, supporting the metabolism and utilization of many essential nutrients. Additionally, magnesium plays an important role in the proper functioning of numerous enzymatic and physiological functions, including neuromuscular contractions, cardiac function, and regulation of the acid-alkaline balance in the body.

    Uses For Magnesium

    Nutrient Utilization: Magnesium is essential in the metabolism of macronutrients, energy production and the utilization of calcium, phosphorus, sodium, and potassium. This vital mineral also helps utilize B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, and vitamin E.

    Bone Health: Magnesium is an essential bone matrix mineral that promotes healthy bone metabolism. A trial involving 2,038 older individuals indicated that higher intakes of magnesium were positively associated with bone mineralization for certain individuals.

    Cardiovascular Support: Magnesium provides broadspectrum cardiovascular support, including arterial function, endothelial function, c-reactive protein metabolism and lipid metabolism. A meta-analysis of 20 randomized trials suggests that it also promotes healthy systolic and diastolic function. In addition, magnesium promotes healthy glucose metabolism. In one 15-year study involving 4,637 young adults, higher intakes of magnesium were associated with healthy cardiovascular function and glucose utilization. Magnesium also plays important roles in muscle function, mood and calming, and cranial vessel comfort.

    What Is The Source?

    Magnesium is naturally derived from limestone. Citrate is produced by corn dextrose fermentation. Aspartate is derived from soy protein hydrolysis. Glycinate and malate are synthetic. Ascorbyl palmitate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil.

    The most helpful favorable review

    Magnesium glycinate appears to be widely recognized by knowledgeable practitioners as the most absorbable form. I take 300-400mg of this magnesium glycinate per day, and it makes my muscles work much better. Before I started using this magnesium, I would have intermittent problems with leg cramps while in bed.

    • Perfect way to take Magnesium

      Posted by Janet on March 2, 2011
      My MD told me to take Magnesium Glycinate, but any other form [tablet] did not agree with me. My MD suggested this brand, and I have been tolerating the capsules well. Thank you to the manufacturer.

      I've seen my magnesium levels rise since I've been taking these instead of a brand that doesn't absorb in your body as well.
