Magnesium Chelate 400 mg is a nutritionally functional
magnesium amino acid chelate with excellent
bioavailability. Each tablet delivers 133 mg of elemental
magnesium as a bis-glycinate/lysinate chelate, or 400 mg
per 3 tablet serving.
Magnesium plays an essential role in a wide range of
fundamental cellular reactions. More than 300 enzymes
require magnesium as a cofactor. Complexed with ATP,
the main carrier of metabolic energy in the body,
magnesium is essential for all biosynthetic processes,
glycolysis, formation of c-AMP, energy-dependent
membrane transport, trans-mission of genetic code for
protein synthesis, and muscle function.
Of the 20-30 grams of total body magnesium, about 40%
is located in muscle and other soft tissues, and the
remainder in bone. The concentration of intracellular
magnesium is carefully regulated, and its alterations can
have profound effects on cardiac and skeletal muscle
Healthy people require about 4.5 mg of dietary
magnesium per kg body weight, or 280 mg for a 62 kg
female and 350 mg for a 76 kg male. The U.S. RDA is
The efficiency of magnesium absorption is a function of
dietary intake. At very low intakes (less than 40 mg) 65-
70% of dietary magnesium is absorbed, whereas at high
intakes (1,000 mg) less than 15% is absorbed. Most
people are expected to absorb about 30-60% at common
levels of dietary magnesium. Contrary to common belief,
recent studies suggest that magnesium absorption is not
affected by calcium or vitamin D, and vice-versa. The
kidney plays a critical role in magnesium homeostasis. At
average magnesium intakes, the kidneys reabsorb about
95% of the filtered magnesium. Our Magnesium is a
glycine/lysine chelate that is a well absorbed and highly
tolerated form of magnesium.
Magnesium may be a useful nutritional adjunct for
individuals who wish to increase their dietary intake of
