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.

1. NatCen Social Research, MRC Elsie Widdowson Laboratory. (2019). National Diet and Nutrition Survey Years 1-9, 2008/09-2016/17. [data collection]. 15th Edition. UK Data Service. SN: 6533, http://doi.org/10.5255/UKDA-SN-6533-15

Magnesium is an essential mineral, which could help support sleep, as well as supporting many other areas of health including the nervous system, and muscle function. However, low levels of magnesium are surprisingly common in the UK.

Magnesium can’t be taken by itself which is why magnesium supplements come in different forms. Magnesium glycinate is a form that is highly bioavailable, meaning it can easily be absorbed by the body, giving it the edge in efficacy over cheaper forms of magnesium.

The added benefit of magnesium glycinate is the dual action support that glycine provides. Glycine is an amino acid which is known to have a calming effect on the brain, and it can positively influence sleep via the body’s circadian rhythm.

Magnesium glycinate is also better tolerated than other forms of magnesium which can have a harsh effect on the digestive system and leave you with an upset stomach.

Magnesium is often referred to as the ‘relaxation mineral’ because it is involved in the production of GABA in the body, a neurotransmitter that has a calming effect on the nervous system and is key to winding down your brain ready for sleep.

Things on your mind and stress can often be a cause of restless nights. The body’s response to stress is managed by the HPA axis. Magnesium plays a role in regulating the HPA axis.

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. Reasons for this might include poor diet, pregnancy, illness or medications. Taking a high-quality supplement daily can help keep your levels of this essential mineral topped up.

Magnesium works closely with calcium, two essential nutrients 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.

Magnesium feeds mitochondria, the ‘powerhouse’ of our cells, whose main job is to produce energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Magnesium is essential for the mitochondria to work properly and for the production and utilisation of ATP. Without magnesium, the body can neither make nor use energy.

The body has a communication pathway called the HPA axis, which amongst many other jobs, influences how we respond to stress. Magnesium plays an important role in regulating the HPA axis, which in turn helps to maintain a balanced stress response. Both mental and physical stress increase magnesium elimination from the body, which over time can lead to dysregulation of the HPA axis and a reduced ability to cope with stress. It is important to ensure magnesium intake is optimal during times of stress to meet these needs.

People take magnesium to support a range of issues, including sleep, stress and muscle recovery. Depending on the reason for taking it, some may notice a difference in as little as a few days to a week. For others, it may take a number of weeks for the effects to be noticeable.

We’d recommend taking this product for 3 months to ensure you give enough time to feel the benefits although this may vary between individuals.

The RNI (Reference Nutrient Intake) 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.

If you are going through periods of higher stress or physical activity, your body may have a higher requirement of magnesium than normal.

Magnesium is very chemically reactive and can’t usually be taken on its own in a supplement – therefore it’s usually attached to something else. As well as Magnesium Glycinate, there are other forms such as Magnesium Citrate, Magnesium Carbonate and Magnesium Oxide.

Some forms can cause issues in the gut or have poor absorbability. At Nutri Advanced, we choose to use magnesium in its glycinate form for better absorption, and the added glycine prevents the magnesium from separating when it dissolves in the gut, which can sometimes lead to stomach upset. Glycine also has its own calming properties, so not only does it help support tolerability and bioavailability, but it delivers additional benefits too.

Magnesium has many health benefits and contributes to:

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.

Our magnesium glycinate is a pure chelated magnesium bisglycinate – meaning magnesium is chelated, or joined, to two molecules of glycine. Magnesium bisglycinate has been shown to be better-absorbed and tolerated than many other forms of magnesium on the market. Some other magnesium glycinate products may be labelled as such, but can also contain magnesium oxide too – to raise the level of magnesium in the product.

Ours is guaranteed pure magnesium bisglycinate – providing you with a highly-effective and bioavailable product to avoid any nasty side effects.

Yes, you can take magnesium supplements even if you are already taking a multivitamin that includes magnesium. It's common for people to fall short of their daily magnesium requirements through diet alone. Women, and those with increased physical activity may benefit from additional magnesium to replenish depleted levels.
