Why Take Metagenics Mag Glycinate?

Metagenics Mag Glycinate contains Magnesium, which is the most abundant mineral in the body, or at least it is supposed to be!  In America, heart disease is the primary cause of premature death, and magnesium deficiency has been conclusively proven to be a causative factor in all cases of heart failure.  It is a small wonder that heart disease is so rampant when approximately 80% of our population is deficient in magnesium!

Magnesium deficiency has also been proven to be a critical factor in the onset of many other diseases including diabetes, high blood pressure, inflammation, stroke, Alzheimer's, autism, cancer and many more.  When we are deficient in magnesium, over 300 enzymes in our body are unable to function properly!

Why Mag Glycinate is Different than Other Magnesium Supplements 

Mag Glycinate is designed to be tolerated by the bowel and is produced by a process that enhances absorption.  It is also not dependent on stomach acids for absorption, which many people are suffering from depletion of.  

  • Supports muscle relaxation and nervous system health.
  • May help to prevent nocturnal leg muscle cramps.
  • Unlike other formulations, magnesium bis-glycinate is absorbed via a mechanism similar to that used by amino acids; it is not dependent on stomach acid for absorption.

Using Magnesium to Treat Chronic Illness

Many chronic diseases respond postively to magnesium supplementation.  The form of magnesium that is used however, is very important! Many magnesium supplements on the market are not absorbable.  They also cause bowel flushing, which makes people unwilling to continue using them. 

There are many conditions that reduce the amount of magnesium in the body and increase the requirements of the bodies magnesium stock piles. This is the kind of situation that sends the body into chronic illness in the first place.

Much of the problem lies in the fact that the nutritional values in foods have drastically declined.  Further we live in a world where chemical toxicity is constantly increasing. 

Magnesium deficiency at a cellular level does not correlate to serum magnesium levels and thus magnesum deficiency is difficult to diagnose with lab work.  Many individuals concerned with Magnesium levels consider the Spectracell micronutrient panel, as it checks the cellular levels of magnesium and many other critical nutrients.  You can order the lab kit from us at the above link.

How can Magnesium Help Reduce the Risk of Heart Conditions?

There are several supplements and minerals which may be used as natural blood pressure treatments. Magnesium deficiency has been shown to be associated with cardiovascular disease, and lower magnesium levels have been found in heart attack patients.  Additionally, Magnesium has been found beneficial in treating ventricular arrhythmias.

Magnesium is proving to be critical to the maintenance of heart health and magnesium, calcium and potassium are all potentially effective in lowering blood pressure and preventing death from heart attacks.   

Mag Glycinate, available exclusively from Metagenics, is a revolutionary, fully reacted amino acid chelate produced by a unique, patented process that is designed to enhance absorption and intestinal tolerance of magnesium.
