Do you need to supplement with magnesium? Over half of the population is thought to be deficient in this essential mineral. However, not all types of magnesium supplements are created equal. Unfortunately, many forms of magnesium are not well-absorbed and can lead to gastrointestinal (GI) upset.
Optimal Magnesium provides two well-tolerated forms of bioavailable magnesium in one simple capsule. The malate form supports natural energy, while the lysinate-glycinate form supports relaxation and GI comfort.
Optimal Magnesium is ideal for those seeking the health benefits of magnesium from two different types of magnesium, in one easy-to-take capsule. Each serving provides 150 mg of magnesium in the superior lysinate-glycinate and malate forms.
Optimal Magnesium contains magnesium as Magnesium Lysinate-Glycinate Chelate and Dimagnesium Malate. More commonly, these are known as the ‘lysinate-glycinate’ and ‘malate’ forms of magnesium.
Compared to other types of magnesium (such as magnesium citrate, magnesium oxide, magnesium chloride, magnesium lactate, and magnesium sulfate) the lysinate-glycinate and malate forms are better absorbed. They are also less likely to stimulate gastrointestinal (GI) upset or loose bowels.
Binding magnesium to the amino acids lysine and glycine supports optimal absorption, GI comfort, and amino acid support for normal tissue repair. Magnesium glycinate’s simple chemical structure minimizes GI side effects commonly experienced from other forms of magnesium supplements. Glycine also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain to support relaxation and a healthy stress response. Lysine plays a key role in building the collagen that holds your tissues together.
Binding magnesium to malate (malic acid) also supports magnesium’s absorption into cells. Malate is involved in energy production as an important compound used in the Krebs cycle. Magnesium malate is an excellent option for athletes or those seeking physical performance support.
While magnesium itself supports healthy energy levels, it also supports relaxation. By downregulating NMDA receptors in the brain, magnesium helps to support calm mood and focus.
Magnesium plays a role in hundreds of enzymatic processes in the body. Found inside your bones and muscles, it’s essential for healthy nervous system function, bone strength, and muscle relaxation.
According to some estimates, up to 75 percent of the U.S. population does not get enough magnesium. Unfortunately, serum magnesium tests do not accurately reflect magnesium status. This is because magnesium is often found within cells and not in the serum.
Magnesium deficiency has been associated with a multitude of health conditions and symptoms: muscle cramps and twitching, heart palpitations, constipation, high blood pressure, racing thoughts, migraines, fatigue, and poor sleep quality. Low magnesium levels also make it difficult to maintain healthy blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
