Magnesium Bisglycinate is magnesium bonded to the amino acid glycine. By binding the two together the magnesium becomes highly absorbable. Even those with poor digestion or absorption will reap the benefits as the glycine bond allows the magnesium to pass straight into the cell. It is an essential mineral for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body including, nerve transmission, forming healthy bones and teeth and temperature regulation, to name a few.
Stress can deplete the amount of magnesium in the body, our adrenal glands produce cortisol which makes the body more acidic and because magnesium relaxes muscles and nerves, more is then needed. Magnesium Bisglycinate is the only shown magnesium to cross the blood brain barrier making it an excellent choice for aiding with depression, anxiety or migraine headaches.
Magnesium is required in the metabolism of oestrogen, if your magnesium levels are low it will lead to an increased amount of oestrogen in your system. This in turn will lead to oestrogen dominance and has many side effects; premenstrual breast and uterine pain, headaches, backaches, depression and mood swings. Women on hormone replacement therapy birth control become deficient in magnesium. Anyone with an oestrogen dominant condition should take magnesium Bisglycinate.
Supplementation of magnesium Bisglycinate into your diet can help with many conditions including; high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, heart palpitations, insomnia, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis and leg cramps. It can also treat ADHD, improve your sleep and control hypoglycaemia.
