Magnesium is a co-factor in over 300 chemical processes in the body, including many critical functions such as healthy nerve and muscle function, regular heart rhythm, maintenance of a strong and healthy immune system, and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. It is crucial for maintaining healthy heart rhythm, regulating blood pressure levels, and keeping blood sugar within a normal range. Magnesium Glycinate provides nutritional support for your bones, muscle comfort, sleep, for cardiovascular health, and for neurological well-being. Those with lower levels of Magnesium or Magnesium Glycinate may be more vulnerable to the impact of stress on the body.
InVite’s Magnesium Glycinate supplement is a complex of the essential amino-acid magnesium bound to the non-essential amino acid glycine, which allows the magnesium to be quickly absorbed into your cells. The high dietary levels of magnesium in our Magnesium Glycinate formula (200mg per tablet) may help protect the body from early to moderate magnesium deficiency symptoms, which include nausea, weakness, tingling, and muscle contractions.
Magnesium is among the top five most abundant minerals in the body. It is an essential nutrient, which means we must consume it in the diet in order to maintain consistent levels of it in our bodies. Since magnesium is not produced naturally in the body, we must consume an adequate amount of this nutrient from foods or supplements in order to maintain proper levels.
The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for 98% of American adults ranges from 310mg to 420mg of magnesium per day. Still, it has been shown that 57% of the US population do not meet the minimum RDA for magnesium. Fifty of the magnesium consumed will be stored in the bones, and the other 50% becomes stored inside the various organs, tissues and cells. Approximately 1% of magnesium is found in the blood, where the body works to maintain homeostasis. Magnesium levels in food sources depend on the quality of the soil. Traditional food sources high in magnesium are wheat germ, bran, oatmeal, soybeans, peanuts, spinach, raisins, almonds, and cashews.
Magnesium is involved in regulating blood pressure as well as blood sugar, because increased magnesium loss in the urine is associated with hyperglycemia. It also helps maintain energy production and protein synthesis. Individuals suffering from alcoholism, chronic diarrhea, or mal-absorptive conditions of the bowels are at higher risk of magnesium deficiency. People who consume an acidic diet are also at risk of magnesium deficiency. Older adults have a higher risk for magnesium deficiency than younger adults, since the integrity of the kidneys is lower and more magnesium may be lost in the urine. It is very important for these groups of people to increase their dietary magnesium intake through food sources and dietary supplements. Certain common medications may cause magnesium depletion as well. These include Cisplatin and other Anti-Neoplastics, Diuretics, Estrogen Replacement Therapy, Beta-2 Asthma medications, Bisphosphonates for Osteoporosis, Cardiac Glycosides, certain antacids and laxatives, diuretics, and Tetracycline and other antibiotics.
Signs of magnesium deficiency include appetite changes, nausea and vomiting, lack of energy, weakness, mood changes or poor mood, numbness and tingling, muscle tension, cramps, and contractions. More severe deficiency signs are abnormal heart rhythms and spasms. Calcium and potassium levels are also affected by low magnesium, and these may become depleted in the blood as a result of insufficient magnesium.
Magnesium, bound to the amino acid Glycine, is an absorbable form of Magnesium for the heart, muscle and nervous system and generally does not loosen stool.

Here, Jerry speaks about the benefits of Magnesium…
The one that's a must for Americans is magnesium. Most Americans are low in magnesium. People come in all the time and say, “Listen, I got arthritis, what should I use?” And then they'll say, “Is there anything else I should use?” And I'll say, “Well, do you eat fish?” I always tell them, “Listen, magnesium and vitamin D”. It's crucial to have magnesium and vitamin D. Magnesium is a mineral many Americans lack. And when you lack it, you're in trouble. Magnesium has more activities than any other mineral. That doesn't mean the other minerals aren't important. It just means magnesium does more for the body. Let me give you a thumbnail sketch of what magnesium does. Magnesium is needed to prevent gall stones and kidney stones. Magnesium is needed for a healthy liver and for anti-oxidant levels. Magnesium is needed for balanced blood sugar. If you lack magnesium, it's easier to slide into diabetes. Magnesium is needed in the generation of energy. There are a lot of things. So it’s important when somebody is fatigued or trying to heal. If you look at a baby, let's say, God forbid, a baby breaks her arm; that arm heals in two weeks. And if you look at a teenager, the same arm, that arm heals in 46 weeks. Now, if you look at somebody 80-years-old, you're hoping the arm heals and you don't have to surgically put a pin in it. When you give magnesium it aids in the healing process because it's involved in an energy pathway. Magnesium is needed to build bone. Magnesium is the gate keeper for vitamin D when it comes to bone health and for calcium and for phosphorous. If you don't have magnesium, those other things don't know what to do. It's like the top management. Magnesium is needed for all the different activities in the brain. Every activity in the brain depends on magnesium. All those neurotransmitters, acetylcholine for memory, remembering and learning. Dopamine for being focused, for loving yourself for being happy, for being creative. Norepinephrine for being aware of things and avoiding symptoms of ADHD. Serotonin, so you're not depressed and anxious and so you're appetite is under control. Melatonin, so you can sleep. All of these, the neurotransmitters that wake you up, the neurotransmitters that put you to sleep; they all require magnesium for them to be made.
Magnesium interacts with B6, B12 and folic acid to make these things. To release them magnesium is needed for normal blood flow. The blood vessels use different electrolytes and minerals. They use potassium, sodium, chloride, calcium and magnesium and phosphorous to regulate blood flow. If you lack magnesium, blood flow becomes unbalanced and you can develop high blood pressure and heart disease, stroke or heart attack. And by the way, what is my favorite magnesium in the world? Magnesium Glycinate. It absorbs 220 percent better than any other magnesium on the planet. Better than magnesium orotate, much better than magnesium sulfate or magnesium bicarbonate or magnesium oxide a million times better. Better than magnesium aspartate, better than magnesium orotate. The best absorbed magnesium is magnesium glycinate. But it's also the one that contains the most magnesium. When you look at a magnesium gluconate capsule, it only supplies 32 milligrams of magnesium typically. When you look at a magnesium orotate tablet, it supplies 50 milligrams of magnesiums. When you look at magnesium glycinate, it supplies 200 milligrams of magnesium. So if you take two a day, it covers it. I take one with my breakfast.
Here is a study of almost 350,000 people. It's a meta-analysis of studies from the European Journal of Clinic Nutrition. When you have magnesium, you lower your risk of colon cancer. There’s a lot of research showing this. Now, the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for women is 320 milligrams of magnesium a day. The RDA for men is 420. I don't think most people are getting magnesium. Every 50 milligram per day increase in the intake of magnesium cuts the risk of colon cancer by 7 percent. Now, there's another one. This is from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. They looked at seven different human clinical trials. For every 100 milligram increase in the intake of magnesium every day, you reduce your risk of stroke by 9 percent. So if you had let's say 600 milligrams of magnesium you'd lower your risk of stroke by 54 percent. So you can expect to cut your stroke risk. If you have enough magnesium every day, you can lower your diabetes risk, you can lower your high blood pressure risk, you can lower your risk of stroke by a good 40 percent. You can lower your risk of colon cancer by about 30 percent, simply from having magnesium. Here's another study that just came out. It's from Japan. It's in the journal Atherosclerosis. It was done on over 50,000 people between the ages of 40 to 80 over the course of 15 years. An increase intake of magnesium reduces the risk of heart disease death by 50 percent. What's the number one cause of death in the United States? Heart disease. Millions of Americans die from heart disease. Simply having enough magnesium cuts your risk of dying from heart disease which would be sudden cardiac death, atrial fibrillation, heart attack or heart seizure. When people come in and say, “Tell me the things I should take.” I always say multivitamin. I ask if they're eating fish. These are just the essentials, vitamin D and magnesium.

What is Magnesium Glycinate?
Magnesium is among the top five most abundant minerals in the body. It is an essential nutrient – this means we must consume it in the diet in order to maintain a constant level, since it is not produced naturally in the body. In order to maintain sufficient magnesium levels, the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for 98% of American adults ranges from 310mg to 420mg of magnesium per day. From this, 50% will be stored in the bones and the other 50% will be stored inside our various organs, tissues and cells. Approximately 1% of the magnesium is found in the blood, where the body works to maintain homeostasis, or a “constant level”. Magnesium levels in food depend on the quality of the soil. Traditional food sources high in magnesium are wheat germ and bran, oatmeal and bran, soybeans and peanuts, spinach, raisins, almonds and cashews.
Magnesium plays a role in over 300 of the body’s chemical processes, including nerve and muscle function, regular heart rhythm, immune system health, energy production, protein synthesis, and bone strength. Magnesium also helps regulate blood pressure and blood sugar levels, particularly in those with hyperglycemia due to their increased loss of magnesium through urine.
Magnesium deficiency is common in those with alcoholism, chronic diarrhea, or mal-absorptive conditions of the bowel, as well as in older adults due to lower kidney function that decreases naturally with age. It is very important for these groups of people to increase their dietary magnesium through food sources and dietary supplements. Some medications that are usually taken much more often by older people may deplete magnesium as well: anti-neoplastics, diuretics, estrogen replacement therapy, Beta-2 asthma medications, bisphosphonates for osteoporosis, cardiac glycosides, certain antacids and laxatives, and even antibiotics such as Tetracycline.
Signs of magnesium deficiency include appetite changes, nausea and vomiting, lack of energy, weakness, mood changes, numbness and tingling, muscle tension, cramps, charley horses and contractions. More severe deficiency signs are abnormal heart rhythms and spasms. Low magnesium levels may also lead to depletion of calcium and potassium in the blood.
