Absorption. It’s the most important thing to consider when supplementing with magnesium. And supplementing is vital because so many of us live in a constant state of stress, which can leave our bodies low on magnesium. Magnesium deficiency can be very detrimental given that magnesium fuels more than 300 bodily processes! So how can you choose a form of magnesium that is most easily absorbed?
You may have heard of magnesium bisglycinate, which wins first place among the most highly bioavailable forms of magnesium! Health First’s Magnesium Bisglycinate 200 Supreme, like all Health First magnesium supplements, features this bisglycinate form to offer you maximum absorbability.
To make Health First’s Magnesium Bisglycinate 200 Supreme, 200 mg of elemental magnesium is bound to the amino acid, bisglycinate, plus citrate and oxide salts for stability. Bisglycinate is broken down in the stomach to yield elemental magnesium ions, which are absorbed into the intestine and then the bloodstream so they go to work wherever they are needed! The citrate and oxide salts that are left behind help to bring water into the gut and support healthy bowel motility and digestion.
An important thing to look for when comparing magnesium products is the elemental amount of magnesium in each capsule: Health First lists only the elemental amount, so what you see on the label is what your body is going to absorb!
