What is magnesium used for?
Magnesium is used in our bodies to regulate the function of over 300 different enzymes, where the activation and catalysis of the enzymes is dependent on magnesium. The muscles also use magnesium to transmit nerve signals, which e.g. helps the muscles to relax. In addition, magnesium is a very good electrolyte, which is also one of the ions that can bind the most water per ion.

Magnesium is excreted i.a. in the sweat, and therefore you use and excrete a lot of magnesium when you play sports. Birth control pills and coffee also drain the body of magnesium, and it is therefore important to ensure that the magnesium level in the body is maintained in order not to become deficient.

In addition, magnesium contributes, among other things also to maintain:

  • muscle function and nervous system
  • psychological functioning
  • cell division and energy metabolism
  • electrolyte balance
  • bones and teeth, as it ensures that calcium can be absorbed
  • counteracts fatigue and exhaustion

Vitamin B6 contributes i.a. to reduce fatigue and exhaustion, and contributes to normal formation of red blood cells. You can read more about Vitamin B6 under B6 from Green Vitamins.

Magnesium Bisglycinate is an aminochelated source of magnesium, which acts as a pH level buffer in the stomach. That is that the pH value of the stomach is affected to a lesser extent by the dietary supplement. It also gives our stomach a better opportunity to dissolve the magnesium compounds so that the free magnesium ions can be absorbed by our intestinal system.

The bone-forming cells in our bodies - osteoblasts - need sufficient magnesium concentration in our body and in the cells in order for them to function properly and maintain our bones.

Our Mag-Citrate dietary supplement contains only 3 main ingredients:
- Magnesium (Citrate, Bisglycinate, Oxide, Stearate)
- Vitamin B6
- HPMC Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (non-fermentable dietary fiber)

How magnesium is absorbed

Magnesium citrate is one of the most absorbable sources of magnesium, but the absorbability of magnesium in our body depends on the solubility of the magnesium compounds in our stomach. The body absorbs magnesium ions, and therefore, for example, the citrate part must be split off by stomach acid.

Aminochelated magnesium bisglycinate is very easily soluble in the stomach, as it contains 2 glycine ions that act as a buffer on the stomach acid, so that the stomach acid is kept in balance and the absorption of the magnesium supplement is improved.

With other sources of magnesium, the balance of our stomach acid is often shifted to a more basic level of magnesium, as magnesium neutralizes our stomach acid.

In addition, the glycine ions from the magnesium bisglycinate also counteract the laxative effect that can be experienced when consuming large doses of magnesium.
