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.
