Magnesium is a mineral that plays a vital role in the functioning of our bodies. Over 300 chemical reactions in our body depend on magnesium.

So, what are the benefits of Magnesium BisGlycinate?

Why Do People Suffer From Magnesium Deficiency?

Effective supplementing of magnesium depends on two factors: how much you consume and how much your body can absorb. How much you can absorb depends on your lifestyle, your diet, stress levels, medications you may be taking, and age.

Gastrointestinal Conditions

Chronic functional disorders of the gastrointestinal system are becoming increasingly common. Inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn’s and colitis result in inflammation in the intestine. Other conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and yeast overgrowth can have similar effects in inhibiting magnesium absorption or flushing it out (through diarrhea) before it can be absorbed.

Easy To Lose

Our magnesium requirements have increased. When we suffer from high stress, our body produces a hormone protein called cortisol. Producing and regulating this hormone means spending and excreting more magnesium.

Coffee, alcohol, diuretic drugs, and birth control pills can cause our kidneys to eliminate more magnesium than they should.
