What is Doctor’s Best High Absorption Magnesium?
Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral that is required for optimal function of the cardiovascular system, nervous system, skeletal muscle, digestive tract, and uterus. Seventy-five percent of Americans are deficient in magnesium. Inadequate magnesium affects the heart, blood vessels, bones and blood sugar balance.
Magnesium deficiency increases with age because of inadequate intake from the diet, poor absorption and certain drugs known to deplete magnesium.
How does it work?
Magnesium ions have a positive electrical charge and this functions as a mineral electrolyte which affects the amount of water in the body, the acidity of blood (pH), muscle function, and other important processes.
Magnesium works as a co-factor for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body including all the reactions involving ATP, important for energy production and muscle contraction and relaxation.
The magnesium glycinate/lysinate in High Absorption Magnesium with TRACCS 100% Chelated is a genuine dipeptide chelate. Compared to other chelates, dipeptides have the ideal chemical attributes for optimum chelation and absorption.
- High Absorption Magnesium uses a patented, organic, chelated delivery form of magnesium to optimize bioavailability and GI tolerance. It is not buffered and is more absorbable than magnesium oxide.*
- Better absorbability: Magnesium Lysinate Glycinate - 2.3x greater than magnesium carbonate, 3.6x greater than magnesium sulfate, 6.0x greater than magnesium oxide, Chelated magnesium is absorbed faster and at a higher rate than ionic salts. Helps promote high magnesium retention in the body. Better tolerated, minimizes laxative effect -- even at therapeutic doses. TRAACS (The Real Amino Acid Chelate System), not a synthetic chelate. Water soluble.*
- Magnesium health benefits: An essential dietary mineral, magnesium plays many important roles, including: helps increase energy levels.
- Not all "Amino acid chelates" are true chelates : High Absorption Magnesium is made with Albion minerals TRAACS, 100% not buffered. Albion unique chelated mineral, scientific process turns elemental minerals form into an absorbed nutrient that’s gentle on your stomach with no laxative effects.
- Easy to swallow
