Magnesium in glycinate form is a highly bioavailable chelate of magnesium and glycine. This particular form of magnesium is most notable for its calming effect on the brain and muscles to encourage relaxation and sleep.
Magnesium is an element and mineral found throughout nature. In the body, it is the fourth most abundant mineral, serves as an electrolyte, and is absolutely critical for numerous chemical reactions that profoundly impact health. Magnesium activates the enzymes necessary for a number of physiological functions, including neuromuscular contractions, cardiac function, and the regulation of the acid-alkaline balance in the body. Optimal magnesium intake is associated with positive mood, healthy bowel movements, lipid metabolism, and lean body mass. Magnesium is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids, and fats, as well as for energy production and the utilization of calcium, phosphorus, sodium, and potassium. Higher intakes of magnesium are associated with improved cardiovascular function, a reduction in migraine symptoms, increased glucose utilization, and healthy bone mineral density. This vital mineral also helps the body utilize certain vitamins such as vitamin B6, vitamin C, and vitamin E.
