Magnesium Bisglycinate

Magnesium is important for many different systems and optimal functioning in the body. For one, magnesium is an incredibly important part of the metabolic system. It is a cofactor in over 300 enzyme reactions that occur within the body. It also helps balance other minerals such as potassium, calcium, and sodium. It has also been known as a great mood stabilizer, helping many with depression. Magnesium is an essential mineral in the proper functioning of the nervous, musculoskeletal, and cardiovascular system. Magnesium deficiency can contribute to many negative symptoms as well as long-term health problems. Symptoms can include migraines, PMS, muscle cramping, insomnia, depression and dysmennorhea. Magnesium deficiency is most often caused by increased urinary output and reduced intestinal absorption. Magnesium is absorbed by the intestines and this function decreases with age and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). As opposed to many magnesium supplements that tend to cause laxative action and thereby not being properly absorbed, magnesium bisglycinate is a stable compound and is readily absorbed by the intestines. Magnesium is an important mineral that may be the cause of any of the above symptoms.
