Magnesium is an essential mineral and a cofactor in more than 300 enzymatic reactions in the body. This mineral is needed for the formation of healthy bones and teeth, protein and fatty acid formation, activating B vitamins, muscle activity, nerve transmission, relaxing blood vessels, clotting blood, temperature regulation and intestinal motility. Magnesium also plays a crucial role in energy production (formation of ATP), and in the synthesis of DNA and RNA.1
Magnesium Glycinate RxBalance™ Magnesium Glycinate, as an amino acid chelate of magnesium, is highly bioavailable. The glycinate form is not dependent on stomach acid for absorption as it uses mechanisms similar to those used by amino acids. Magnesium glycinate is well tolerated by individuals who are sensitive to magnesium oxide or citrate.
The absence of magnesium from processed foods and the depletion of magnesium from agricultural soils have contributed to the frequency of magnesium deficiency found today in North American populations. Magnesium supplementation can help with many conditions from palpitations, arrhythmias, leg cramps and fatigue, and restless leg syndrome to insomnia, nervousness, anxiety, endurance, and stamina. Supports the development and maintenance of bones and teeth. Helps to maintain proper muscle function.
