What is Magnesium Glycinate/Bisglycinate?
Magnesium Glycinate, also known as Bisglycinate or Diglycinate, is the magnesium salt of glycine (one magnesium and two glycine molecules). As a dietary supplement, it contains 14.1% elemental magnesium by mass. Accordingly, 100 mg of magnesium is contained in 709 mg of magnesium glycinate.
Magnesium is a naturally occurring mineral that is important for many systems in the body, especially the muscles and nerves. Magnesium is naturally present in many foods, added to other food products, available as a dietary supplement, and present in some medicines (such as antacids and laxatives). As a mineral supplement Magnesium Glycinate is used to prevent and treat low amounts of magnesium in the blood. Magnesium is a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate diverse biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation.
Magnesium glycinate is made up of magnesium, an essential mineral, and glycine, a non-essential amino acid. It is easily absorbed by your body, likely because it gets carried to your cells bound to the amino acid. This form of magnesium also is desirable because it’s less likely to cause a laxative effect. Magnesium glycinate is a mineral supplement that is made from the magnesium salt found in glycine. Magnesium glycinate is the supplement form that falls closest to the magnesium that is found naturally in your food sources and nature. Foods that are high in fiber are generally high in magnesium. Dietary sources of magnesium include legumes, whole grains, vegetables (especially broccoli, squash, and green leafy vegetables), seeds, and nuts (especially almonds). Other sources include dairy products, meats, chocolate, and coffee. Water with a high mineral content, or “hard” water, is also a source of magnesium.
