Premier Research Labs Magnesium Glycinate

Highly Absorbable Magnesium
 
Key Benefits
  • A highly absorbable form of magnesium, produced by a fully reacted amino acid chelate, designed to enhance absorption and intestinal tolerance of magnesium
  •  Supports adequate ATP (energy) production, thus playing a key role in promoting healthy energy levels*
  • Supports healthy muscle relaxation and contractility*
  • May help to prevent nocturnal leg muscle cramps*
  •  Promotes healthy nerve transmission*
  • Plays an important role in biosynthesis, growth and thermogenesis, as well as in bone mineralization and intestinal motility*

Premier Magnesium Glycinate is a revolutionary new form of highly absorbable magnesium.
It is a fully reacted amino acid chelate produced by a unique, patented process that is designed to enhance absorption and intestinal tolerance of magnesium. Unlike other formulations, the magnesium in Premier Magnesium Glycinate is absorbed via a mechanism similar to that used by amino acids. It is not dependent on stomach acid for absorption. Therefore, magnesium glycinate may be the magnesium of choice for individuals who need additional magnesium support or for those who are chronically deficient in magnesium. The superior absorption of magnesium glycinate combined with low digestive stress and high intestinal tolerance allows higher amounts to be absorbed without the typical loose stool effect as seen with other forms of magnesium.

 

How Do You Measure Magnesium?
Urinary loss of magnesium can be measured by a 24-hour urinary magnesium test, but this does not give a reliable view of whole body magnesium status. A better test is the SpectraCell blood test which measures intracellular magnesium levels (i.e. the amount of magnesium inside the cell) and has a high correlation with the body’s true magnesium levels. However, in addition to lab tests, it is important to review the history of the individuals’ diet, medications (if any), lifestyle habits and special needs.

How Do You Sustain Healthy Magnesium Blood Levels?
Adrenal Stress. The primary problem with poor magnesium status is adrenal cortical stress. In adrenal stress, there is a continual, wholesale magnesium excretion from the body. In these cases, no matter how much magnesium is consumed, magnesium levels will often continue to be low (as measured by intracellular magnesium tests). Therefore, in low magnesium states, we recommend not only Premier Magnesium Glycinate, but also Premier Adrenal Complex (3 to 6 Vcaps, breakfast and lunch for 4 to 8 weeks). This is essential to support healthy adrenal function so magnesium excretion can return to normal levels. Finally, adrenal function cannot be restored if 5 or more continuous hours of sleep in not provided.

Benefits of Magnesium
Magnesium plays an important, critical and widespread role in the body in the following ways:

1. Magnesium helps maintain the heart muscle and blood vessels.
Magnesium helps maintain adequate tone and relaxation of muscles  and blood vessels, which supports healthy blood pressure and heart rate. Magnesium also helps maintain the balance of the clotting mechanisms of the blood. It also increases the oxygen in the heart by improving heart muscle contractility.

2. Magnesium is integral to bone structure.
Magnesium assists in the metabolism and uptake of calcium. The parathyroid gland, adjacent to the thyroid, has a major function of assisting in the regulation of calcium metabolism. Magnesium helps to synergize the secretion of parathyroid hormone. Insufficient levels of magnesium can decrease the ability of the body to respond to parathyroid hormone.

3. Magnesium helps maintain normal nerve, brain and muscle function.
While 60% of the magnesium is in the bones, the rest is primarily in the cells where it functions to regulate the transmission of impulses between brain cells, and from nerves to muscles and organs. It also maintains adequate muscle function and contractility.

4. Magnesium is a co-factor to activate and regulate over
300 enzyme systems in the body relating to life-supporting biochemical reactions. Magnesium is integrally involved in the production of energy in the cells via a biochemical reaction called the Kreb's Cycle. Magnesium participates in the formation of the energy reserve of the muscles (called cyclic AMP). Thus, deficiency of magnesium can be associated with fatigue & weakness. As a co-factor, magnesium participates in the synthesis of protein, building DNA (found in every cell) and is a binding agent for messenger RNA. Magnesium is also a cofactor with vitamin C to help build collagen. Magnesium is a key agent assisting with temperature regulation. Magnesium also supports the function of the pancreas.

5. Magnesium is critical in glucose metabolism, in addition with vitamin B1.
Magnesium plays an important role in the breakdown and digestion of sugars and fatty acids. It also helps to maintain normal levels of blood fats.

6. Magnesium acts as a buffering agent to regulate the acid/alkaline status of the body.
Magnesium is a critical player in regulating intracellular fluid and support of the cell membrane, including permeability.

7. Magnesium acts as a chelating and detoxifying agent.
Magnesium helps to detoxify the body and assists in maintaining adequate liver function.

 

What Depletes or Interferes with Magnesium?
Many factors can deplete magnesium, including stress, anxiety, tissue injury, prolonged fasting, radiation, an overactive thyroid, chronic gastrointestinal concerns and an acid condition of the body (acidosis).  Excess refined sugar, caffeine, refined carbohydrates, low dietary protein, excess zinc, excess vitamin D and excess calcium can contribute to magnesium deficiency. Soft drinks, in particular, can rapidly deplete magnesium, due to their high content of refined sugar and phosphoric acid. Consumption of items with aluminum, fluoride and phosphates can also interfere with absorption of magnesium.

What Foods Are Highest In Magnesium?
Foods which are naturally high in magnesium are: barley grass, oat grass, wheat grass, nutritional yeast, kelp, brown rice, sunflower seeds, cashews, almonds, buckwheat, dulse, millet, wheat, pecans, walnuts, beet greens, dried coconut, dried figs, dried apricots, dates, avocado, cheddar cheese, parsley, prunes, cooked beans, garlic, raisins, banana, blackberries, beets, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, asparagus.




Recommended Use:  Take 1 capsule, 2 times daily. Take at night for a natural sleep aid.
