Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral that is required for optimal function of the cardiovascular system, nervous system, skeletal muscle, digestive tract, and uterus.
Seventy-five percent of Americans are deficient in magnesium. Inadequate magnesium affects the heart, blood vessels, bones and blood sugar balance. Magnesium deficiency increases with age because of inadequate intake from the diet, poor absorption and certain drugs known to deplete magnesium. How does it work? Magnesium ions have a positive electrical charge and thus functions as a mineral electrolyte which affects the amount of water in the body, the acidity of blood (pH), muscle function, and other important processes. Magnesium works as a co-factor for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body including all the reactions involving ATP, important for energy production and muscle contraction and relaxation. The magnesium glycinate/lysinate in High Absorption Magnesium with TRACCS® 100% Chelated is a genuine dipeptide chelate. Compared to other chelates, dipeptides have the ideal chemical attributes for optimum chelation and absorption. Why should I take High Absorption Magnesium with TRAACS® 100% Chelated? Doctor’s Best uses a patented, organic delivery form of magnesium that is 100% chelated to optimize bioavailability. Doctor’s Best High Absorption Magnesium is not buffered, meaning that is it not mixed with less expensive and less absorbable magnesium oxide. Inadequate magnesium negatively affects not only the heart, blood vessels, and bones, but may also impact blood sugar balance.* Research has shown a link between magnesium and healthy blood pressure. A decrease in bone mineral density is associated with lower blood magnesium levels.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
