Material Name(s): Magnesium Glycinate also known as Magnesium Bisglycinate; Magnesium (Mg), Glycinate
Magnesium in the form of magnesium glycinate is a powerful muscle relaxant as well as the key component in the action of many enzymes in the body. Magnesium’s inclusion provides the much-needed relaxation of muscles as well as assisting and optimizing synaptic plasticity, which is the ease with which nerve signals move to and from the brain to distant tissues.
Synaptic plasticity is compromised in many disease conditions besides pain and muscle damage, for example the damage caused by AGE`s (advanced glycation end products) produced when excess sugars (as in pre-diabetes and diabetes) bind with various proteins in the body (lining of the blood vessels, enzymes, skin etc.) causing loss of function of the proteins.
Finally, magnesium in the glycinate form is highly bioavailable, which means it is well absorbed by the body without causing the typical gastro-intestinal side-effects attributed to some other forms of magnesium.
