Let's Talk Magnesium
Magnesium is one of the most common mineral supplements, but not all magnesium is created equally, and each form of magnesium can lead to drastically different outcomes.
Cheap forms of magnesium such as oxide & chloride have a laxative affect. Not good! Forms with higher absorption, like our novel glycerophosphate, have higher bioavailability so the magnesium will go beyond just your stomach and into your body.
Magnesium is vital for the proper functioning of your body, and your body can’t make it on its own. You have to obtain it from your diet, whether from eating foods high in magnesium or from taking magnesium supplements like Mag-GP. Studies have shown nearly 50% of people in the US don't get enough magnesium, which has a recommended serving of 400mg-420mg per day for men, and 320mg-360mg for women.
It's most commonly used for relaxation, muscle recovery, or cardiovascular and bone support. Athlete's typically have lower amounts of magnesium after completing training, and can benefit from supplementing magnesium to restore magnesium levels.
MIXES CLEAR. NO TASTE.
Chelated minerals generally have better absorption. The strong magnesium-glycerophosphate bond allows Mag-GP to survive the stomach acid and move to the small intestine to be absorbed into the bloodstream. The better the absorption, the less GI & stomach distress one will experience. We went for ultra-absorption.
Solubility is a nice feature when it comes to mixing your Mag-GP into water or another beverage, but it also plays a role into how well the magnesium is absorbed through the small intestine and into the bloodstream. Mag-GP is ultra-soluble. It's solubility is even greater than other chelated magnesium types such as glycinate.
Chelated magnesium (Mg) is best for absorption, but once it is absorbed into the bloodstream it now must be metabolized (broken down) in order for the Mg to be used by the body. Even if it's all absorbed, if it has poor metabolism the Mg won't have any benefits and will simply be excreted out through urine. Clinical data in adults has shown that the Mg in Mag-GP is not only highly absorbed, but metabolized and used by the body.
Studies on the Mg used in Mag-GP have been used at doses of 500mg elemental Mg with zero laxative affects. We suggest using between 210-420mg per day (1-2 scoops), depending on your age, sex, goals, and overall diet.
Glycerophosphate plays a fundamental role in the cell membrane and the main organs tissue constitution, in particular, the brain tissues. In fact, glycerophosphate operates in the phospholipid synthesis. Phospholipids are complex lipids that participate in the constitution of cell membranes and the tissues of the main organs.
