Why choose Magnesium Glycinate?
From energy production to healthy nerve and muscle function, magnesium is an essential mineral with numerous benefits to our health. At Nutri Advanced, we choose to provide magnesium in a glycinate form meaning it is highly absorbable by the body, giving it the edge in efficacy over other, cheaper forms of magnesium. Not only that, magnesium glycinate is better tolerated than other forms of magnesium which can have a harsh effect on the digestive system and leave you with an upset stomach. Each tablet provides 100mg of magnesium, meaning you can take as little or as much as required to suit your individual needs.
Why should I take a magnesium supplement?
As the fourth most abundant mineral in the body, magnesium is required for hundreds of physiological processes. However, data from the most recent National Diet and Nutrition Survey shows that many of us in the UK have an insufficient magnesium intake for reasons including poor diet, pregnancy, illness or medications. Taking a high-quality supplement daily can help keep your levels of this essential mineral topped up.
How much magnesium is recommended?
The RNI for magnesium is between 270mg and 300mg daily, depending on whether you are male or female. Just 2-3 tablets of Magnesium Glycinate daily can help you achieve the recommended requirements, alongside a healthy and balanced diet.
What are the benefits of magnesium?
Magnesium contributes to the:
- normal function of the nervous system and muscles
- energy-yielding metabolism
- reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- electrolyte balance
- normal protein synthesis
- the maintenance of normal bones and teeth.
How does magnesium help support normal sleep?
Magnesium is the relaxation mineral, involved in the production of calming neurotransmitters and balancing the effects of stress and anxiety on the body and mind.
How does magnesium help with muscle recovery?
Magnesium works closely with calcium, and both of these essential nutrients are involved in regulating muscle contractions. Calcium causes your muscles to contract whilst magnesium helps muscles to relax. If your body doesn’t have enough magnesium to compete with calcium, your muscles may contract too much, causing cramps and spasms.
What are the therapeutic benefits of glycine?
Glycine is an amino acid which the body uses to create proteins, for growth and maintenance of tissue. The body uses glycine to make glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that can help protect cells against oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Glycine is also known to have a calming effect on the brain, making it a perfect match with sleep-supporting magnesium.
Why are magnesium tablets so big?
Here comes the science - one molecule of magnesium is bound to two of glycinate, meaning larger molecules, and therefore a larger tablet-size. This form of magnesium means better absorption, and added glycine prevents the magnesium from separating when it dissolves, which can sometimes lead to a stomach upset.
When should I take my magnesium supplement?
Whilst magnesium can be taken at any time of day, some experts suggest taking it in the evening, due to the calming effect it has on the muscles and nervous system.
