The Most Reliable Source of Magnesium for Supplements
In TrueMagnesium™, you have a chelate that bonds magnesium to the amino acid glycine – known as magnesium bisglycinate chelate – that helps you get the most from a magnesium supplement.
As important, we don’t just use a generic magnesium bisglycinate chelate – TrueMagnesium™ contains the one widely regarded as the best, which is from Albion Labs and made using their TRAACS® technology.
Here are some of the reasons why TRAACS® magnesium bisglycinate chelate is superior:
For starters, this ingredient is “fully chelated” to ensure it survives the digestion process intact and is not “buffered” (some similar buffered chelates are actually part magnesium oxide).
Second, glycine is naturally occurring in the body, so your body recognizes this amino acid and is ready and willing to absorb and use it. What’s more, the size of the magnesium bisglycinate chelate compound is small enough to be absorbed directly into cells. So with this supplement, the magnesium can get into both your blood and your cells – this is a very important consideration.
Third, TRAACS® magnesium bisglycinate chelate will not ionize in the intestines. This is important because forms of magnesium that ionize leads to loose stool and diarrhea. That is not a concern when taking TrueMagnesium™, it is very well tolerated.
Next, because it’s fully chelated, the magnesium does not compete with other minerals (like calcium) for a carrier which could impede absorption. Similarly, it’s fully protected from other dietary substances (such as phytates of phosphates) that disrupt bioavailability.
Once into the blood stream, the magnesium and glycine begin to separate – and both are available to be used by the body. An added benefit of magnesium bisglycinate is the glycine it provides. Glycine is an amino acid used in numerous processes in the body. It’s found in high concentration in muscles, connective tissue and the skin.
