Magnesium Glycinate

Magnesium is a powerhouse supplement that many of us may be low on. It plays a role in over 300 enzymatic processes in the body. It can induce calm, relax muscles and it’s an important nutrient that is lost during stress. It tends to be lower from drinking diuretics such as coffee.

Magnesium is also unique because it plays a special role in our liver detoxification (in a process called methylation). Not having enough magnesium can slow this process down leading to toxin overload and problems with estrogen excess.

Magnesium can also play a role in blood sugar imbalances, it’s great for relaxing muscle tension, can help reduce period pain, and also can help you drift off into deeper sleep – hands down, one of my favorite supplements.

Verifiable Science

Magnesium activates the enzymes necessary for a number of physiological functions, including neuromuscular contractions, cardiac function, and the regulation of the acid-alkaline balance in the body.1-4 In a cross-sectional study involving 210 elderly individuals, optimal magnesium intake was associated with positive mood, lipid metabolism and lean body mass.5 Magnesium is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids and fats, as well as energy production and the utilization of calcium, phosphorus, sodium and potassium.6-12 In a 15-year study involving almost 5,000 young adults, higher intakes of magnesium were associated with healthy cardiovascular function and glucose utilization.13 Another large cross-sectional study found that magnesium intake was positively associated with bone mineral density in certain subgroups.14 This vital mineral also helps utilize some vitamins, including vitamin B6, vitamin C and vitamin E.15,16 Magnesium (glycinate) is less likely to cause loose stools than other forms of magnesium.17‡
