Brand New: Magnesium Glycinate and Why You Should Try it!


You may have heard the term “magnesium,” but do you know what it is and what it does for the human body? – Not sure? Perfect! We’ve got the rundown below!


What is Magnesium? 

Magnesium is one of seven essential macro-minerals that should be consumed by an individual each day, according to many health experts. Moreover, magnesium is the third most common mineral in our bodies, after calcium and phosphorus, responsible for the proper functioning of hundreds of enzymes and hormones. Having enough magnesium is key to many vital functions in our bodies.

According to some studies, magnesium may help in maintaining healthy heart rhythms and cardiovascular functions. Studies have also suggested that magnesium is also important for keeping bones healthy by helping with the assimilation of Calcium and Vitamin D.


How much Magnesium do we need and does it change over time? 

On average, a person has 25 grams of magnesium in their body. Most of it is found in our bones, cartilage, and muscles at any given time. The other one percent of body magnesium left is responsible for the smooth execution of many cellular and enzymatic processes. Even the slightest drop in this small amount of magnesium found in cellular fluids, also referred to as your serum magnesium level, can disrupt the optimal functioning of the body.

The standard recommendations by experts for daily amounts of magnesium change as we age. Many studies have revealed that an adult woman needs about 310 milligrams of magnesium per day, however, when they reached the age of 31 and above, they need to have at least 320 milligrams of magnesium although pregnant women need an extra 40 milligrams. For men, 400 milligrams is said to be required at the very least. It is always best to seek advice from your doctor regarding the amount of magnesium one should have.


What are the major types of Magnesium?

  1. Magnesium Citrate- Magnesium citrate is a saline laxative that is thought to work by increasing fluid in the small intestine. It usually results in a bowel movement within 30 minutes to 3 hours. On the other note, over-utilization of this mineral may cause mild abdominal discomfort/cramps, gas, or nausea.
  2. Magnesium Oxide- Magnesium oxide is a mineral supplement traditionally used to aid low levels of magnesium in the blood. It is sometimes used to help relieve heartburn or indigestion. You should not take more magnesium oxide than your doctor or the product label recommends. Too much magnesium in the blood can cause serious side effects.
  3. Magnesium Malate- Magnesium malate is a compound made by combining magnesium with malic acid. Malic acid is found in many fruits and responsible for their tart taste. It is typically used to assist with migraines and joint pain support.
  4. Magnesium Glycinate- This type of magnesium is bound to glycine. Magnesium glycinate has outstanding absorption levels, much higher than many other forms of magnesium,  which means that the body can make the most of it once it’s ingested. Many people use this to aid with joint pain relief, overall muscle flexibility, sleep, and leg cramps.


Why is Magnesium Glycinate better than other forms of magnesium?

Glycine is considered a relaxing neurotransmitter and may enhance magnesium’s natural calming properties. It is a non-essential amino acid involved in protein synthesis and transmission of chemical signals in the brain. 

Thus, Magnesium Glycinate could be one of the best types for those who want to promote mental calm, relaxation, and good quality sleep. It is a gentle form for individuals who are sensitive to magnesium oxide or citrate, as it is less likely to cause a laxative effect.


What are the major benefits of Magnesium Glycinate?

  1. Energy Production and Metabolism- Magnesium Glycinate may play a role in the process of helping to energize metabolism and as well as assisting in the maintenance of normal muscle function. Supplementation of magnesium may also help support  exercise performance of an individual. 
  2. Bone and Muscle Health- Magnesium is an essential mineral for bones and muscles.  Low magnesium levels can inhibit Vitamin D leading to calcium deficiency in the bones and muscles. Magnesium also helps support leg cramp and muscle pain relief. 
  3. Sleep Management- For a person to fall asleep and stay asleep, the body and brain need to relax. Magnesium Glycinate aids this process by activating the nervous system, the system responsible for getting you calm and relaxed. It may also help with the regulation of melatonin. Not only can magnesium support a better night’s sleep, but it may also play a part in helping you achieve deeper and more restful sleep as well.
  4. Stress and Anxiety Management- It’s important to understand that stress and anxiety comes in many different forms, from physical to mental to emotional to environmental. However, according to many studies, stress can be a factor with magnesium depletion where a lack of magnesium magnifies this. One of the most common signs of magnesium deficiency is muscle tightness and cramping. Tight muscles make you feel tense, and magnesium is a natural muscle relaxant. Magnesium glycinate may help support the body’s response to stress.
  5. Digestive Health and Immunity- Magnesium Glycinate helps to support digestive health and a healthy immune system. Magnesium and constipation are directly related because the entire gastrointestinal tract is essentially one long muscle. By now, you may probably know that our digestive system plays a significant effect on the immunity of the body as well, so it’s best to take care of our guts all the time. A healthy digestive system is one of the keys to optimal immunity.
