Magnesium Chelate has magnesium bisglycinate as constituent part. This is a chelated form of magnesium and the amino acid glycine. The presence of glycine has a buffering effect on chelated magnesium, which improves the solubility of the entire compound, improves the absorption of the magnesium in the intestine and, therefore, improves its bioavailability.
Magnesium bisglycinate is obtained from the union of the mineral to two molecules of the amino acid glycine, through a chelated bond, being one of the most bioavailable and absorbable forms of magnesium, and the one that can cause the least gastrointestinal problems, such as the effect laxative or the induction of diarrhea produced by Magnesium Citrate. This amino acid is itself a neurotransmitter with some anxiolytic properties, enhancing the relaxing effect of magnesium itself. It is probably the safest option to correct a mineral deficiency in the long term.
Each Magnesium Chelate softgel from Pharmatech® contains 200 mg of magnesium.
Pharmatech®‘s Magnesium Chelate serves as the best source of Magnesium due to its high bioavailability, greater absorption and its presentation in soft capsules that are easy to swallow, tasteless and its content disintegrates and dissolves easily.
The chemical element Magnesium (Mg) ranks fourth among the most abundant minerals in the human body. It is involved in more than 300 metabolic reactions essential for human health, such as energy production, regulation of blood pressure, transmission of nerve signals, and muscle contraction. It helps the synthesis of proteins and contributes to the maintenance of good health of bones and teeth.
WHAT IS MAGNESIUM CHELATE FROM PHARMATECH® FOR?
Magnesium deficiency in the body is generally evidenced by any of these symptoms: tiredness or fatigue, headache, sleep problems, mood swings, weakness, cramps, low potassium, nervous system irritability, irregular heartbeat of the heart, among others. These symptoms do not appear immediately and do not occur all at once.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TAKING MAGNESIUM CHELATE FROM PHARMATECH®?
Magnesium is an essential nutrient and plays an important role in our body by participating in the enzymatic processes that regulate various biochemical reactions.
Benefits and functions of Magnesium:
Production of energy and strengthens the Immune System.
Synthesis of proteins and genetic material (DNA and RNA).
Control of blood glucose. Lowers the risk of diabetes.
Regulation of blood pressure and lipid profile. Improves heart health.
Helps maintain electrolyte balance.
Development and health of the bones.
It helps in the metabolism of calcium, preventing it from accumulating.
It takes part in the transmission of the nervous impulse and in the muscular relaxation. Decreases cramps and improves sleep.
WHAT IS THE DOSE OF MAGNESIUM CHELATE FROM PHARMATECH®?
It is recommended to take 200 to 400 mg a day (1 to 2 Softgels), preferably before bedtime.
The daily requirement of Magnesium in people four years and older is 420 mg per day, of which about half is provided by food, which has sometimes been fortified with magnesium. For this reason, the additional intake of magnesium is often recommended in the form of dietary supplements.
The most important reservoir of magnesium is in our bones (60% of total body magnesium), the rest is in skeletal muscle and soft tissues (40%). The magnesium content of bones decreases with age, and the magnesium thus stored is not completely bioavailable during magnesium deprivation. For this reason, we must include magnesium intake regularly to prevent magnesium deficiency.
There are many Magnesium formulations available in the market, however, it is useful to know its origin, composition, and dosage form. Within the varieties of Magnesium we find chelates or products in the form of Carbonates, Oxide, Sulfate, Citrate, among others. In addition, there are aminochelates that are the union of the mineral with an amino acid, these chelates have excellent bioavailability.
Bioavailability is the amount of Magnesium that the body assimilates and exerts the desired effect.
For a magnesium-based food supplement to perform its function, it must:
Comply with the declared amount of Magnesium.
Its formulation must have a high bioavailability (Aminochelate).
It must be well absorbed by the intestine.
Easy to swallow (Soft capsules)
