Why Magnesium Glycinate is better than just Magnesium.

Magnesium is crucial for our bodies. It’s used by every cell to build proteins, repair DNA, and provide energy. It’s estimated to be used in over 350 different biochemical reactions!¬†Magnesium has what is takes to build our bones, relax our muscles and calm our mind.

But why Magnesium Glycinate?

By itself, glycinate is called glycine, which is an amino acid. Amino acids link together to form proteins. Proteins make up our cells, muscles, and tissues. There are 500 amino acids in nature but your body only uses 21 of them, one being glycine.

Glycine is used to help make a lot of useful things in your body such as:

  • Collagen – used to heal wounds
  • Serine – an amino acid that helps the brain
  • Glutathione – used in the liver as an antioxidant
  • Hemoglobin – an essential component of red blood cells

Magnesium Glycinate is also gentle on the bowels. Your intestinal walls have different channels that move different nutrients into your blood. These channels are like doors for nutrients. Some move minerals and others move sugars. There are many different kinds of channels. Amino acids, like glycine use on of the many dipeptide channels. Because magnesium and glycine stay together, they travel through dipeptide channels together. And because there are many, more magnesium can be absorbed by your body. Magnesium not paired with glycinate can upset your digestive system. These magnesium ions draw extra water into your stomach and intestinal tract that can cause bloating or diarrhea.
