Douglas Laboratories Magnesium Glycinate
Magnesium Glycinate supplies 100 mg of elemental magnesium from a magnesium glycinate/chelate complex in an easy to swallow tablet.
Each serving contains:
Magnesium (from Magnesium Glycinate) - 100 mg
Other ingredients: Microcrystalline cellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose, carboxymethy cellulose, stearic acid, carnauba wax, silica and ascorbyl palmitate.
As a dietary supplement, adults take 1 tablet, 1-2 times daily or as directed by your healthcare professional.
Magnesium is a mineral with a fundamentally important physiological function in the body. However, typical diets in the U.S. and other industrialized countries often provide less than adequate amounts of magnesium. Supplementation with bioavailable glycinate and chelate salts of this mineral can help bridge the gap between dietary intake and optimal requirement.
Magnesium plays an essential role in a wide range of fundamental cellular reactions. More than 300 enzymes require magnesium as a cofactor. Complexed with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the main carrier of metabolic energy in the body, magnesium is essential for all biosynthetic processes: glycolysis, formation of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), energy-dependent membrane transport, transmission of genetic code for protein synthesis, and muscle function. Magnesium is also involved in maintaining normal heart function and blood pressure. Two thirds of the body’s magnesium content is in the skeleton. Recent animal studies show that magnesium supplementation supports bone formation while increasing its dynamic strength, but also balances normal bone resorption processes.
