Magnesium Glycinate Complex
Magnesium helps convert carbohydrates, protein, and fats to energy, acts as a catalyst in thousands of enzymatic processes, regulates and maintains vascular tone, opposes calcium deposition into soft tissue, and is critical to proper bone formation. It regulates calcium and potassium metabolism, facilitates muscle constriction and relaxation, and assists in nerve transmission and conduction. For optimal absorption, this formulation uses magnesium combined with amino acid glycine to create a unique chelated compound that is highly bioavailable and well tolerated by even the most sensitive individuals.
Magnesium supports numerous actions in the body, including:
- Muscle relaxation: Magnesium exerts a relaxant effect on muscles by inhibiting calcium influx and smooth muscle contraction.
- Bone formation: Magnesium has a multi-faceted role in bone health. This mineral has an influence on calcium metabolism and bone formation through its role in converting vitamin D to its most active form. Magnesium also supports the function of several hormones that affect calcium absorption and utilization.
- Cardiovascular function: Magnesium supports blood pressure regulation and heart muscle function.
- Blood sugar metabolism: Magnesium is involved in glucose metabolism and insulin secretion and action.
