  • Glycine enhances solubility and absorption of magnesium bisglycinate by decreasing the pH of the intestines.*
  • Glycine takes up space on the magnesium bisglycinate molecule, decreasing propensity to complex with plant-based phytates that can interfere with absorption.*
  • The molecular structure of magnesium bisglycinate means less water will attach to the complex, which reduces the laxative effect typically seen in magnesium compounds.*

A crossover study found that serum levels of magnesium over eight hours were highest for magnesium bisglycinate, followed in order by dimagnesium malate, buffered magnesium bisglycinate, and magnesium oxide.*

Magnesium is essential for the health of the heart and blood vessels, brain, bones, skeletal muscles, lungs, and pancreas.* A low level of magnesium is associated with an increased level of C-reactive protein.* As a cofactor for at least 600 enzymes, magnesium supports numerous mechanisms of action, including:

  • Relieves bronchial spasm*
  • Modulates intracellular electrical activity*
  • Relaxes smooth and skeletal muscle*
  • Improves endothelial-dependent vasodilation*
  • Enhances insulin sensitivity*
  • Cofactor in numerous enzymes necessary for ATP (energy) production*
