Magnesium Glycinate 240 mg per serving Description
Magnesium plays a role in many important functions in your body—from heart health to energy metabolism—so much that it can be considered to provide whole body support.* Magnesium is found in foods such as black beans, brown rice, chicken breast, potatoes, peanuts, and spinach. However, according to the National Institutes of Health, most American adults consume less magnesium than is recommended. Magnesium absorption can also decrease as we age. That’s why it is important to use a high-quality magnesium supplement.
Puritan’s Pride Magnesium Glycinate is a highly absorbable bioavailable form of magnesium. It provides more than 50% of the recommended daily value of magnesium per serving, helping to complement the magnesium that you take in from your diet.
Magnesium stores in the body can be found in the bones, muscles, and various soft tissues, and plays an essential role in optimizing circulating levels of Vitamin D.* First, Magnesium is involved in converting Vitamin D from the form we get in food, supplements, and the sun into its storage form. From there, Magnesium plays a separate role in converting Vitamin D from its storage form to its active form—the form that provides all the nutrient’s essential benefits. Both Magnesium and Vitamin D play an important role in bone health: Vitamin D assists in calcium absorption while Magnesium is involved in calcium transport.*
What’s more, adequate magnesium intake is needed to support the contraction and relaxation of muscles and helps with leg cramps. Leg cramps can occur occasionally among adults with inadequate intake.
If you’re looking for overall wellness support, our Magnesium Glycinate capsules are a great choice.*
