Magnesium is one of the most important minerals for our health. It is necessary for maintaining proper nerve and muscle function through its regulation of calcium, creating cellular energy in the mitochondria and also acting as a cofactor to build DNA, RNA and many proteins. Despite its vast importance, it is commonly deficient in the Canadian population due to poor diet, medication depletions and stress. Suboptimal magnesium levels create a pro-inflammatory state within the body with numerous health implications.
As more research continues to build regarding the benefits of magnesium in human health, it is difficult not to consider additional supplementation in most patients. Clinical trials and large-scale evidence has shown that magnesium can be helpful in cases of muscle tension, fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, attention- deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), cardiovascular disease, dementia, osteoporosis, migraines and more.
Magnesium bis-glycinate is a form of magnesium that combines one molecule of the essential mineral with 2 molecules of the inhibitory amino acid glycine. This chelated bond is advantageous as it remains stable throughout the digestive tract, it prevents magnesium from binding with other compounds and it grants access to dipeptide transport sites. Ultimately, this leads to greater absorption and tolerability in the body.
Magnesium malate is another highly bioavailable form of magnesium. Malate, also known as malic acid, is actually a substrate found in the mitochondria that is used to create ATP and it works synergistically with magnesium to improve energy and reduce pain. In fact, placebo controlled and open-label trials have confirmed that magnesium malate can reduce pain and tenderness in fibromyalgia sufferers.
Mag-Matrix Liquid provides 210mg of elemental magnesium per tablespoon in a bioavailable blend of glycinate, malate and citrate. This magnesium blend is found in a liquid form for convenient dosing and it is naturally lemon flavoured for improved patient compliance.
