Magnesium AA Chelate - 90 Capsules
Magnesium is an essential mineral for continued good health and well-being. It can be found in numerous foods naturally and is added to fortified foods. It is also important for many functions in the body, including energy production, muscle and nerve function, as well as synthesis of DNA. These are just a few of the countless functions that Magnesium has within the body. Three capsules per day will provide 100% of the Recommended Daily Value for Magnesium from Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate.
Amino acids can be present in the form as single amino acids, small oligopeptide chains (HVP) , or more complex polypeptide chains (Rice Protein), depending on what protein base was used to form the bond with the Mineral, in this case – Magnesium.
When a single Amino Acid is used, you will have a product such as Magnesium Glycinate (L-Glycine is used), or Magnesium Aspartate (L-Aspartic Acid), which are typically used to target specific areas of the body.
When a protein substrate is used as the base to make an Amino Acid Chelate, the protein is broken down and the amino acids are released to create a bond with the mineral ions. This process creates a neutral charge so the nutrients pass through the villi of the body and uptake of the mineral is more efficient.
