Magnesium Glycinate is an important mineral for maintaining a healthy heart rhythm, a healthy blood pressure and keeping blood sugar within a normal range. Additionally, Magnesium Glycinate provides nutritional support for bones, plus cardiovascular and neurological wellbeing. Those with lower levels of Magnesium or Magnesium Glycinate may be more vulnerable to stress.
This product is a complex of the essential amino acid magnesium bound to the non-essential amino acid glycine, which allows magnesium to be absorbed into your cells. The high dietary levels of magnesium in our Magnesium Glycinate product (200mg per tablet) may help support the body from early to moderate magnesium deficiency symptoms that 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. Our body does not make it, so in order to maintain proper levels, the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for 98% of American adults ranges from 310mg to 420 mg per day. 50% of this will be stored in the bones and the other 50% inside our 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 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 a co-factor in over 300 chemical processes in the body, many critical, such as healthy nerve and muscle functions, a regular heart rhythm, maintenance of a strong and healthy immune system, and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. Magnesium is involved in the regulation of 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 malabsorptive conditions of the bowels are at higher 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. These include Cisplatin and other anti-neoplastics, Diuretics, Estrogen replacement therapy, Beta-2 asthma medications, Bisphosphonates for Osteoporosis, Cardiac glycosides, Magnesium containing antacids and laxatives, as well as Tetracycline and other antibiotics.
Signs of magnesium deficiency include appetite changes, nausea and vomiting, lack of energy and 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 levels, and may become low in the blood when Magnesium levels are low.

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.

Magnesium is a co-factor in over 300 chemical processes in the body for such important purposes as healthy nerve and muscle functions, a regular heart rhythm, to uphold a strong and healthy immune and to maintain strong bones. Magnesium is involved in the regulation of blood pressure as well as blood sugar because increased magnesium loss in the urine is associated with hyperglycemia. It helps maintain energy production and protein synthesis.
Individuals suffering from alcoholism, chronic diarrhea, or malabsorptive conditions of the bowel are at higher risk of magnesium deficiency. Older adults have a higher risk for magnesium deficiency than younger adults for a combination of reasons. Since the integrity of the kidneys is lower, and more magnesium may be lost in the urine. Certain common medications, more likely to be taken by the elderly but not limited to this population, are involved in magnesium depletion such as Cisplatin and other anti-neoplastics, Diuretics, Estrogen replacement therapy, Beta-2 asthma medications, Bisphosphonates for osteoporosis, Cardiac glycosides, Magnesium containing antacids and laxatives as well as Tetracycline and other antiobiotics.
Signs of magnesium deficiency include appetite changes, nausea and vomiting, lack of energy and weakness, mood changes or poor mood, numbness and tingling, muscle tension, cramps, charley horses and contractions. More severe deficiency signs are abnormal heart rhythms and spasms. Calcium and potassium levels are also affected by low magnesium levels, and may become low in the blood when magnesium levels are low.
It is very important for these groups of people to increase their dietary magnesium through food sources and dietary supplements.
