Magnesium, from Genesis BioHealth, is a multi-component blend of organically complexed magnesium and vitamin C. Sometimes the components we use in our blend are also called magnesium chelates.
This product uses NO fillers. Also, we list the magnesium content of our capsules in terms of “elemental magnesium” which is the same basis the official RDA uses (Recommended Daily Allowance). Capsules quoting magnesium content on the basis of the total complex weight may provide adequate amounts, but often such capsules can contain from 6 to 15 times less magnesium. Manufacturing and quoting magnesium content on an elemental basis helps ensure the full intended dosage is obtained, delivered, and absorbed.
In our formulation, we have four different fully reacted magnesium complexes, each with excellent bioavailability. Each individual component is fully reacted to help ensure effective absorption and minimal impact on delicate GI tissues. We list the relative amounts of each complex used in the formula, from greatest to least, below:
A large portion of the formula (40% wt/wt) is singly devoted to Magnesium Taurate. This is because we very much like taurine's ability to improve cardiac function, improve insulin sensitivity, and reduce hyper-excitability for the nervous system. Glycinate, on the other hand, is useful for promoting healthy muscle tone, relaxation, and for aiding chronic aches and pains. The ascorbate provides a good source of the antioxidant vitamin C (roughly 100% RDA for an adult male), and citrate is helpful in the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the currency of cellular energy in the body.
We compound these materials to better mimic mother natures diversity. The formula aids absorption, balances digestive impact, and offers the body a variety of resources to boost cellular metabolism. Each of the various organic portions bound to magnesium work together and are used by the body to support a healthy metabolism.
Our formula provides a very potent, digestible, and absorbable blend of magnesium salts yielding in excess of 10% elemental magnesium by weight. We use only these ingredients, and no others, to fill medium-sized capsules (18.4 x 7.3 mm). These small capsules make for an easy swallowing experience with maximum strength. We believe this capsule size offers a great balance of swallowing ease and potency.
To aid in achieving optimal health, pair this product with our Essential minerals - Complete and Regenesis products. By combining all three products with a nutrient-rich diet, health can be supported in a very robust way.
