Magnesium Glycinate Chelate is one of the best absorbed forms of magnesium. Each capsule provides 150 mg of elemental magnesium. This product should not cause any of the unfavorable gastrointestinal symptoms associated with magnesium supplementation due to the very stable chelate formed between two glycine molecules and each magnesium ion via a patented process.

Adults and Adolescents 9 and over: Take 1 capsule twice per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Warnings: Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Magnesium is an essential mineral that serves as an enzyme cofactor for over three hundred biochemical reactions in the body, including those of glycolysis, the first step in harnessing energy from carbohydrates. Magnesium follows potassium as the second most abundant intracellular cation (positively charged electrolyte) in the body. The adult human body contains approximately 25 grams of magnesium, over 60% of which is found in the skeleton. Muscle tissue contains about 27%, with the bulk of the balance found in other intracellular areas, and less than 1% occurring in the blood. As a structural component of the hydroxyapatite mineral matrix of bone, a natural calcium channel blocker, muscle relaxant, facilitator of calming effects upon the nervous system, and a required element for electrolyte balance and proper functioning of sodium-potassium pumps, magnesium plays a crucial role in supporting physical strength and mobility, muscle contraction, neurological health, cardiac function, and psychological balance. Magnesium’s role as an enzyme cofactor for processes that generate ATP underlies its importance for maintaining energy levels and metabolic efficiency.
Magnesium Bisglycinate Chelate
A highly absorbable form of elemental magnesium chelated to two molecules of the amino acid glycine. The amino acid chelate is absorbed via dipeptide channels, bypassing the usual active transport and passive diffusion routes for intestinal ion absorption, where magnesium would otherwise compete with other minerals. This method of delivery allows larger amounts of magnesium to be absorbed more quickly and be better retained by the body, as compared to many other forms. Moreover, the breaking of the bonds between magnesium and glycine allows the body to use both the mineral and the amino acids, making this a more physiologically natural and nutritionally beneficial process than other chelated mineral delivery mechanisms, such as EDTA. The magnesium-glycine complex protects magnesium from binding to dietary phytates and tannins, therefore enhancing its bioavailability. This unique form of magnesium has been shown to be effective for individuals with the greatest impairments in magnesium absorption, including those with inflammatory bowel conditions, among whom the prevalence of overt magnesium deficiency may be as high as 86%. Compared to healthy subjects, those with compromised intestinal mineral absorption excrete twice as much magnesium when given in insoluble salt form (such as Mg oxide), as opposed to a chelate. This amino acid chelate may be especially beneficial for those who require high doses of magnesium, as relatively high doses lead to fewer unwanted gastrointestinal effects that may present with other forms of supplementation. Chelated magnesium has been shown to reduce the pain associated with dysmenorrhea and the frequency and severity of leg cramps in pregnant women.
