Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical processes in the body. One of its most important functions is that it plays a key role in energy production. This makes it vitally important for all cellular functions and processes. It also helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm regular, supports a healthy immune system, relaxes muscles, supports mood and keeps bones strong. The problem with this essential mineral is that most people do not consume sufficient levels for optimal health. Evidence shows that 60-90% of people are deficient in magnesium. To offset a chronic magnesium deficiency, many people find it very helpful to supplement with magnesium to reduce muscle spasms, restless legs, headaches, high blood pressure, and constipation. Various forms of magnesium are available and they all differ as to how well they are absorbed. For example, magnesium oxide is not well absorbed and can have a laxative effect, while magnesium glycinate or magnesium aspartate are much better tolerated and absorbed. With each different form having its own unique benefits, it can be difficult to choose which one to take for optimal health benefits.
Advanced Magnesium Complex is a highly bioavailable formula that combines four superior sources of magnesium into one comprehensive magnesium supplement. This formula includes magnesium aspartate, magnesium ascorbate, magnesium malate and magnesium glycinate. Magnesium ascorbate provides vitamin C, while magnesium aspartate reduces chronic fatigue and improves energy. Magnesium malate helps reduce muscle pain and supports muscle function, and magnesium glycinate is one of the most well-tolerated and well-absorbed forms of magnesium because it is transported as a whole compound across the intestinal wall, reducing the risk of diarrhea. It also provides glycine, a calming amino acid. Each source of magnesium provided is easily absorbed and delivers additional benefits beyond just those of the magnesium, making this the most advanced magnesium supplement available.
