Each Magnesium Glycinate Chelate capsule by Designs for Health provides 150 mg of elemental magnesium. The chelated magnesium found in this supplement comes from Albion Advanced Nutrition, which is known as one of the best mineral chelators in the industry. Unlike some other magnesium supplements, Magnesium Glycinate Chelate by Designs for Health should not cause loose stools or stomach upset because of the stability of the chelate that is formed between two glycine molecules and each magnesium ion. This is done through a patented process that is brought to you by Designs for Health. Also, unlike other supplements, there is no need to worry about absorption interference with other chelated mineral products when you take Designs for Health's Magnesium Glycinate.
What is Magnesium?
As one of the most abundant minerals found in the body, magnesium is essential to good overall health. About half of the magnesium in the body is found in the bone. The other half can be found in the cells of body tissues and organs, and only about 1 percent is found in the blood. Although so little can be found in the blood, this is a very crucial source of magnesium and the body works extremely hard to keep its level at one percent.
As you might expect from such an abundant mineral, magnesium is essential for many bodily functions. In fact, it is necessary for over 300 biochemical reactions. It has a hand in maintaining nerve and muscle function, supporting the immune system, keeping the heart's rhythm steady and keeping the bones strong. In addition, it helps to regulate levels of sugar in the blood and promotes normal blood pressure. It may even be involved in metabolizing energy and synthesizing proteins.
Gastrointestinal disorders, such as Crohn's disease can limit the body's ability to absorb magnesium from food. Over time, these conditions can deplete the body's store of magnesium and result in a deficiency. Some evidence shows that an overly acidic diet, rich in caffeine, processed foods and refined sugars, can also lead to less than optimal levels of magnesium. Excessive loss of magnesium may also come as the result of taking certain medications.
If you are experiencing magnesium deficiency, you might notice a loss of appetite, vomiting, weakness or fatigue. However, as the deficiency gets worse, you could experience numbness, muscle cramps seizures and personality changes. If your magnesium levels aren't corrected, you can end up depleting the body's store of calcium. If you think you might be suffering from a magnesium deficiency, you should visit your doctor to discuss your symptoms. Many of the symptoms of magnesium deficiency are similar to symptoms of other medical issues.
