Magnesium Buffered Chelate contains highly absorbable magnesium, with each capsule providing 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.
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take two capsules per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
Magnesium is an essential mineral that assists in over 300 biochemical
reactions in the body. It is the second most abundant mineral inside cells,
where it also participates in converting food (especially carbohydrates)
to energy. Over 60 percent of the body’s magnesium is stored in the
skeleton, and the remaining portion is primarily housed in the muscles.
It is crucial for energy production, bone and muscle health, physical
strength and mobility, neurological health, and metabolism.
Magnesium Buffered Chelate is one of the best absorbed forms of
magnesium, where a magnesium ion is bound between two glycine
amino acids, forming a very stable chelate, which eliminates the
traditional loose stools or upset stomach that may occur with magnesium
supplementation. Mineral chelates can bypass normal modes of
absorption in the intestine and therefore, avoid the competition that
occurs between minerals for absorption. In this way, larger amounts of
magnesium pass through the intestine and are available to the body.
The unique process of “sandwiching” magnesium between the glycine
molecules also protects it from being bound by dietary compounds,
further enhancing its availability.
Benefits of Magnesium
• Bone Health — Magnesium partners with calcium in maintaining bone health. Many individuals supplement
calcium without adequate magnesium, leading to ineffective support for bone health. Magnesium is also
needed for proper activity of vitamin D, which is crucial for bone health.*
• Digestion and Elimination — Individuals with low stomach acid or less-than-optimal digestion often lack
adequate magnesium since absorption is compromised. Magnesium chelates help to restore healthy
magnesium balance when digestion is not efficient. It also promotes a healthy elimination pattern.
• Cardiovascular Health — Magnesium helps support muscle relaxation and function, which is vital to
cardiovascular health since the heart is a muscular organ. Magnesium is also an important cofactor in
several enzymes that support healthy blood pressure.*
• Relaxation and Sleep — As magnesium helps muscles to relax, it can enhance relaxation, promote a sense
of calm, and support normal sleep patterns.*
• Carbohydrate Metabolism — Magnesium is critical for the biochemical reactions involved in converting
carbohydrates and fats into energy. It may also contribute to the proper functioning of insulin receptors.*
• Kidney Health — As magnesium balances calcium, it may support kidney health by reducing the risk for
calcium to be abnormally deposited in the kidneys.*
Recommended Use: Take two capsules per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
