Magnesium bis-glycinate is the most bioavailable form of magnesium. It’s also extremely gentle, so you can take a hefty dose without any digestive upset. That makes it the perfect option for anyone looking to correct a deficiency.

These Chelated Magnesium Capsules are made from magnesium bis-glycinate chelate with the addition of magnesium oxide. While I don’t recommend anyone takes magnesium oxide on its own, paired with magnesium bisglycinate it works. This unique combination allows for a smaller pill size with simultaneous great absorption.

More about it:

  • Magnesium can be absorbed all along the GI tract, but the ileum of the small intestine is the site of best absorption.

  • Most magnesium absorption is paracellular. Tight junction proteins strip magnesium of its hydration shell to facilitate passive transport. The ideal pH for this action is 5.5 to 6.5.

  • Smaller magnesium loads can be handled by the active transcellular pathway in the distal colon.

  • Magnesium oxide is high in elemental magnesium but on its own it drives up pH, inhibiting absorption at tight junctions.

  • The glycine in the magnesium bis-glycinate slows this pH rise. It’s ‘buffering,’ like when your streaming video is stalled/slowed down and it says it’s buffering!

  • The glycine also ‘guards’ the reactive sites of absorption against phytates or other inhibitors. 

  • Glycine keeps the compound more soluble in the intestinal tract, also increasing bioavailability. 

  • Some magnesium will also be absorbed through the amino acid transport pathway as glycine is an amino acid.

Two small capsules will yield 300 mg of magnesium. Continued use may bring relief from:

  • Headaches

  • Muscle cramps

  • PMS

  • Brain Fog

  • Low Energy

  • Poor sleep

The recommended daily intake of magnesium is 400-420 mg for men and 310-320 mg for women.
