WHAT IS MAGNESIUM BISGLYCINATE? Magnesium Bisglycinate is magnesium which has naturally bonded to two molecules of the amino acid glycine. It is highly bioavailable in the body as, unlike other inferior sources of magnesium, it is not dependent on stomach acid for absorption. Magnesium Bisglycinate uses mechanisms of absorption similar to those used by amino acids. Supplementing with Magnesium is becoming increasingly popular as it can assist with a wide range of conditions including tiredness, fatigue, muscle cramps and heart palpitations. In addition, a deficiency in Magnesium has been shown to impair exercise performance. Including this important mineral within your supplement regime can therefore ensure that your performance doesn't suffer, whilst also providing an array of other benefits. These highly effective Magnesium Tablets from BULK POWDERS contain a massive 500mg each, of which 100mg is active magnesium. The Bisglycinate form makes allows for easy absorption, proving far more effective than other forms of Magnesium. WHERE IS MAGNESIUM FOUND? Food sources that are naturally high in magnesium include nuts, bananas, yoghurt, brown rice and potatoes. Half of the magnesium in the body is found in bone. The rest is found in tissues and organs, leaving only 1% in the blood. The body works very hard to keep blood levels of magnesium constant but supplementing with Magnesium Bisglycinate will help massively in reaching the recommended daily intake for optimal health and exercise performance. ALSO REFERRED TO AS: Mg PERFORMANCE BENEFITS Magnesium is widely known for its health benefits but not so much for its vital role in sports nutrition. It is found that generally, most people consume inadequate amounts of magnesium for optimum health. Research also suggests that even very small deficits in magnesium consumption can seriously impair exercise performance. Positive effects of magnesium have been documented on oxygen utilisation, improved heart rate levels and activation of ATPases enzymes. These enzymes increase the breakdown of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) into adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and a free phosphate ion; this reaction releases energy. Fatigue and muscle cramps are two very common ailments, especially if you're training hard. Due to its role in your nervous and endocrine system, magnesium supplementation can help reduce fatigue, prevent cramping and improve mental state, which in turn will improve your endurance and stamina when training. Focussing on endurance too, magnesium plays an important role in electrolyte balance. Due to sweating we lose a lot of our bodies natural minerals. Hypomagnesaemia is an electrolyte imbalance that occurs when serum levels of magnesium are low, so by supplementing with Magnesium Bisglycinate, you will prevent any imbalances from occurring. HEALTH BENEFITS Magnesium helps with bone mineral density, therefore aiding in the prevention of osteoporosis. It also has strong links to controlling blood pressure (hypertension) and glucose levels (diabetes). In addition this important mineral can help with health issues such as stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia.
