If you are low on magnesium and the experts say nearly everyone is then you want to find a product that is easy on the stomach and well absorbed in the body. This High Absorption Magnesium contains elemental magnesium chelated with the amino acids glycine and lysine.
Chelated means the magnesium is bound to a negatively charged group, (an anion), in two or more places which is why it is connected to glycine and lysine in this case. Magnesium can be hard to absorb so attaching it to glycine has been shown to be an efficient carrier for minerals that facilitate absorption in the intestinal tract.
If you have tried to build your magnesium levels up you may have experienced the common problem of loose bowels or even diarrhea from taking the supplement which can end up lowering your levels even more. It is very frustrating and one of the reasons I chose this product.
Doctor’s Best recommends taking magnesium because “As an essential dietary mineral, magnesium plays many important roles which include: helping cells produce metabolic energy, supporting optimum nerve function, helping muscles relax properly and maintaining a healthy heartbeat. Facilitates the body’s energy production, Helps maintain healthy muscle contraction
Supports nervous system electrical activity and Promotes health across the lifespan.” That is why I take it.
It is available through iHerb. There are three reasons I purchase from iHerb who are based in the United states. The first is their pricing. They are very inexpensive compared to the products I can buy locally even allowing for our low exchange rate. Secondly they have a huge range and I do mean huge. I cannot get this range from a local supplier. Thirdly is their fast and inexpensive delivery. At the time of writing it was $5.00 or even free for a reasonable purchase. So don’t be afraid to purchase from out of Australia.
