Description

High Absorption Magnesium supports healthy and normal bodily functions

High Absorption Magnesium contains elemental magnesium chelated with the amino acids glycine and lysine. It is a "di-peptide" chelate, which means that each magnesium atom is chelated with two amino acid molecules. It has a low molecular weight of 324 daltons, which is ideal for optimum absorption.

As an essential dietary mineral, magnesium plays many important roles, including:

  • Magnesium helps support normal energy production in cells.
  • Supports healthy nerve and muscle function.
  • Helps maintain a normal, regular heartbeat.
  • Supports healthy bone density

Maximizing absorption of Magnesium - Chelated Minerals Explained

Mineral absorption occurs mainly in the small intestine. Like any mineral, magnesium may be absorbed as an "ion," a mineral in its elemental state that carries an electric charge. Mineral ions cross the intestinal membrane either through "active transport" by a protein carrier imbedded in the cells lining the membrane inner wall, or by simple diffusion. The magnesium in mineral salts is absorbed in ionic form. However, absorption of ionic minerals can be compromised by any number of factors, including: 1) Low solubility of the starting salt, which inhibits release of the mineral ion, and 2) Binding of the released ion to naturally occurring dietary factors such as phytates, fats and other minerals that form indigestible mineral complexes.

A second absorption mechanism has been discovered for minerals. Experiments have shown that minerals chemically bonded to amino acids (building blocks of protein) are absorbed differently from mineral ions. This has given rise to the introduction of "chelated" minerals as dietary supplements. Mineral amino acid chelates consist of a single atom of elemental mineral that is surrounded by two or more amino acid molecules in a stable, ring-like structure.

Unlike mineral salts, which must be digested by stomach acid before the desired mineral portion can be released and absorbed, mineral chelates are not broken down in the stomach or intestines. Instead, chelates cross the intestinal wall intact, carrying the mineral tightly bound and hidden within the amino acid ring. The mineral is then released into the bloodstream for use by the body.

I, my husband and my three adult children all take this with vitamin D3 and vitamin K2. These three products all work together.

I'm finding this magnesium supplement really effective in terms of relaxation and preventing painful cramps. This is probably the most effective magnesium I've taken. The only negative is the size of the tablets - I'm finding them quite difficult to swallow.

These are the best things ever!!! I used to suffer terribly with chronic migraines. They'd come in clusters. I'd be fine for a few months then BAM! In the space of a month I'd spend about 15 days debilitated. I read about treating migraines with magnesium and these really work!!! I took 300mg a day at first (2x before bed and 1x in the day). Now I take that dose every other day. I still get the odd migraine about 2 - 3 a year now but that's when I've missed a dose.

BE AWARE there a lots of types of magnesium, most of which are not absorbable for the human body. I bought some from a well known, popular high street health store (their own brand) and was debilitated once again.

Doctors Best chelated magnesium really are the best!! They're life changing!!!

I have been taking magnesium supplements for years, but always suffered with the laxative effect from them.
This magnesium products has caused me no side effects, not everyone who takes magnesium supplements have problems digesting them, but for people like me with weak digestion/poor stomach acid production, these are a must!
