Detailed Ingredient Description:

Magnesium
is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body and is essential for energy production within our cells. Sixty percent (60%) of the body's magnesium is found in our bones and the remainder is found in our major organs and tissues. Magnesium is critical for maintaining normal muscle and nerve function, keeping the heart rhythm steady, supporting a healthy immune system and keeping our bones strong.

the processing and refining of our foods removes much of the food's natural magne- sium, hence magnesium deficiency is extremely common in North America.

research has demonstrated that sixty-eight percent (68%) of adults do not consume enough daily magnesium.

Symptoms of magnesium deficiency can include anxiety, fatigue, irritability, loss of appetite, migraines, muscle weakness and spasms, insomnia, mental confusion, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, numbness and tingling. Those considered at high risk for magnesium deficiency include those with chronic mal-absorption digestion problems such as crohn's and celiac disease or those at risk of increased magnesium loss through the kidneys such as individuals with diabetes, hyperthyroidism or kidney disease. certain prescription medications can also cause a loss of magnesium such as diuretics, antibiotics and oral contraceptives. Seniors in general can greatly improve their health by increasing their magnesium intake.

Magnesium in further detail:
Magnesium is an important catalyst for the body's chemical reactions, meaning that it increases the rate at which chemical reactions occur. Some of the most important chemical reactions that involve magnesium are in the Kreb's cycle, the cycle inside every cell that leads to energy production.

Without magnesium the transmission of nerve and muscle impulses is compromised. This can lead to nervous disorders, depression and muscle weakness or twitches. Magnesium is a useful supplement for PMS symptoms that involves irritability and mood swings. Magnesium also decreases menstrual pain by relaxing the uterine muscles. In pregnancy magnesium acts as a uterine relaxant and can prevent premature labour.

Studies show supplemental magnesium in pregnancy also decreases the risk of birth defects such as cerebral palsy. Magnesium is an important mineral for cardiovascular health. It regulates the heartbeat, prevents the calcification of arteries and relaxes arterial vessels to prevent hypertension. Magnesium has also been researched for its ability to reduce cholesterol, protect against osteoporosis and prevent cancer.

Magnesium can be found as a lone mineral, usually in tablet or capsule form (rarely as a powder). Chelated or citrated magnesium supplements are easier for the body to use and can be taken with or without food. Chelated simply means that magnesium is bonded to a protein molecule, for example aspartate or glycinate, and citrated means that magnesium is bonded to a citrate molecule.

Both processes enhance magnesium's absorption in the intestinal tract but decrease the amount of magnesium that is available in one supplemental dose versus magnesium oxide. The magnesium in antacids is not a good supplemental source because it neutralizes stomach acid and will impair the absorption of other minerals, like calcium.

Magnesium is more commonly used in a Calcium/Magnesium complex. They are available as tablets, capsules, powders and liquids. Magnesium is found in the same forms as are available in single magnesium supplements. When choosing a Cal/Mag complex consider the ratio of calcium to magnesium. The most popular is 2 calcium:1 magnesium because calcium is normally recommended at twice the daily amount as compared to magnesium. However for those individuals in need of extra magnesium 1:1 and 3:2 (Cal:Mag) ratio supplements are available.

Coral calcium is an option for those who use a calcium/magnesium complex. Coral calcium contains a form of magnesium oxide that has better absorption because it is a naturally occurring magnesium. It occurs in a 1:4 ratio (magnesium:calcium) and is found in a complex with many other minerals. Two types of coral calcium exist, fossilized and marine. Fossilized coral is farmed after it floats to the top of the ocean while marine grade is live coral that is vacuumed from the ocean floor. There is a debate between the maker of both types as to which is better with no clear winner emerging. One must consider the ecological effect of both processes when purchasing coral calcium. Ensure that your supplement is tested for contaminants since the coral is farmed from the ocean. Even after purification coral calcium contains minute amounts of heavy metals and should not be consumed by pregnant or nursing women.

Combination Rationale
Magnesium Bis•Glycinate 200 supplementation was formulated knowing that the hu- man body is an organic living being.

In order to be properly absorbed, nutrients like magnesium need to be either (a) in pure organic form, or (b) like magnesium bisglycinate, attached to an organic molecule (like glycine) that can help it be more easily transported and absorbed in the intestines.

In a study comparing the bioavailability of magnesium bisglycinate to magnesium ox- ide, magnesium bisglycinate was found to be fifty percent (50%) more absorbable. Inorganic forms of magnesium, such as magnesium oxide, magnesium chloride or mag- nesium carbonate, can cause diarrhea at high doses. diarrhea can lead to a serious depletion of minerals.

CanPrev's Magnesium Bis•Glycinate 200 provides the most preferred form of magne- sium for the maintenance of health.

5 out of 5 stars Doesnt stress my intestines!
by Fergus from Calgary on 23/7/2011
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
I have Celiac disease and with it comes malabsorption problems. Also, I cant tolerate the amount of magnesium I should be taking; its a natural laxative, Ill say no more ;) I was researching magnesuim one day and found that the mag. bis-glycinate is more absorbable and more available so I can take less. I tried one bottle and then went back to the magnesium I was using before. I usually go on and off something 3 times to be certain it does work. I am back on it now and wont go off again. I can tell you definitively that it is working better even though the 200 mg dose is 1/2 of what I was taking, and I have less intestinal issues. CanPrev is better priced that the US brands and National Nutrition has the best price, even amongst the US mail order companies!
