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.
