Magnesium glycinate is one of the most gentle and absorbable forms of magnesium, an essential mineral that plays a critical role in more than 300 metabolic reactions in the body.

When magnesium ions bind to glycine, it forms a glycinate. Glycine, an amino acid, actively crosses the intestinal barrier through the amino acid transport system, whereas magnesium alone would otherwise diffuse passively. Clinical nutritionists say this combination results in improved absorption of minerals.

Magnesium is required in protein, fat and nucleic acid synthesis. It helps the body use glucose and is a key player in the body’s energy transport system. Magnesium assists in inhibiting muscle contractions and blood clotting and is also beneficial in maintaining tooth enamel and providing immune system support.

Magnesium is also vital to cardiovascular health and function. People who lack magnesium show noticeable changes in their arterial and capillary walls, which compress in the absence of the mineral.

Magnesium works synergistically with calcium. When taking mineral supplements, a 1:2 ratio of magnesium to calcium (respectively) will maintain the necessary balance.

Food sources of magnesium include nuts, whole grains, legumes, tofu, green leafy vegetables, wheat bran, soybean flour, almonds, cashews, pine nuts and black walnuts, and seafood.

Magnesium is an essential mineral in most vital functions in the body. It influences a wide range of fundamental cellular reactions. As a cofactor, hundreds of biochemical reactions rely on magnesium. Together with adenosine triphosphate (ATP) (Wikipedia), the main carrier of metabolic energy in the body, magnesium is required for biosynthetic processes such as glycolysis, formation of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), energy-dependent membrane transport, and transmission of genetic code for protein synthesis and muscle function.

The wide range of symptoms associated with magnesium deficiency (University of Maryland Medical Center) include agitation and anxiety, restless leg syndrome (RLS), sleep disorders, irritability, nausea and vomiting, abnormal heart rhythms, low blood pressure, confusion, muscle spasm and weakness, hyperventilation, insomnia, poor nail growth and seizures.

A well-balanced diet is enough to provide normal amounts of magnesium. However, typical diets in industrialized countries such as the U.S. often provide inadequate levels of magnesium. Supplementation with bioavailable glycinate and chelate salts of this mineral can help bridge the gap between dietary intake and optimal requirement.
