Product Description

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.

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 ATP 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. Focusing 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.

Size: 60 tablets Verified Purchase
I have used Magnesium bisglycinate before, after being recommended it by a naturopath for tension, stress, headaches as well as eczema. I rave about this supplement for all those things. I used to get cramps in my shoulder/neck muscles because of tension, and regular headaches - all gone. I recover better from the gym, and these along with epsom salt (and destressing!) have got my eczema in check. When I first started using it I was recommended Nutri - great brand, but not cheap. Thought I'd try these (after having used some different magnesium compounds in between - no where near as good), and can say that they are working like a charm. Been using them (1 tablet morning and night) for 5 days and can honestly say I have noticed the difference already. And for a fraction of the price of the Nutri. Definitely recommend, and will be buying again!

Had been using another brand only to find the magnesium in the tablets were the least absorbable. These are far more bioavailable and I have noticed a difference only after 10 days. I have less body aches and sleeping so much more soundly. Come in a handy pouch which is easily posted through letter box (so no waiting for parcel) and plenty of them so will last a while. So far, I'm impressed

2 Tablets a day - a month's supply.

No Magnesium Oxide (bio-inactive or whatever).

No laxative effects for me
No weird dreams for me

These came in a thin Amazon card. The bag is thin, and won't stand up on its own. The top tears off, and is resealable. None of these were broken in transit.

Easy to swallow.

It's hard to quantify whether these helped, or by how much - but I took these with vitamin D for a while and I found I was keeping my energy through the day much better (during exam time). Usually I get sleepy after lunch when revising, and having more energy was definitely helpful!

It's hard to say whether the worked by placebo, though - I definitely was more conscious of getting to bed on time, and making a ritual of having these, some camomile tea, a shower, etc. before bed.

Nowadays I forget to take the usual pills (D, multi, Mag, omega) most days and my energy is okay.

Worth trying for a couple bucks though, for sure!

I have used many different brands and types of magnesium before. They all had the same unpleasant effect of making my stools very loose. Therefore, the magnesium wasn't absorbing as it should and mearly pulled water into the gut. Not an ideal situation if you want to be able to leave the house. Magnesium Bisglycinate does not have this problem as it absorbs properly. I have been using this form of magnesium for two months now and I am extremely pleased with the results. It hasn't caused any of the unpleasant side effects which I've experienced with other types. The most notable benefits are: no more muscle cramps after heavy workouts (I tend to get bad cramps in my hamstrings), neck tension from sitting at a desk for long periods is much less pronounced, faster recovery from workouts and not as much doms, generaly feeling more relaxed, skin seems better and my excema is less prone to flare up. I'm sure there are a myriad of other health benefits from taking supplemental magnesium. We tend not to get enough through our diets as modern farming techniques deplete the soils of minerals making it difficult to get optimal levels of these important nutrients. I do take quite a lot of supplements but if I were to cut them down to only a couple, this would definately be one I would keep as I can see and feel the benefits and am certain this is not a placebo effect.

Takes ridiculously salty, but i already knew that, so if you don't, just be aware. Mixes well with ON Pre-Workout (watermelon). Not sure how much it's helped as i've changed my diet as well but cramping has reduced, so it can't be all bad.

I won't lie. It took me a while to appreciate why this is a great product and that's my fault.
I really like - Source Naturals Magnesium Malate, 1250Mg, 180 Tablets because it's a good form of mag for a great price and the dosage is better however the bioavailability is not as good!

So here's what I will say - if you are just low on magnesium and looking for a general supplement go ahead and buy the Source Naturals one because it's a better deal. However, if you're looking for magnesium for better recovery, better sleep and spots performance, get this one because it's bioavailability is superior.

As much as I love Amazon I would recommend people to go to their website (bulk powders), open an account and buy it from there because you get all sorts of really crazy deals like 20% off up to 70% off. Per each buy you get referral points that translate to money and their customer service is pretty quick.
I only write these reviews for products I used myself and can recommend full heartedly.

BTW, if you use this code on your first purchase - RSTDXK you will get £5 for free (it's my referral) on orders over £15 but it's basically 10 because you get 5 back!
