Carlson's Chelated Magnesium is prepared to promote the absorption of magnesium. The magnesium is chelated with glycine, an important amino acid in human nutrition. Magnesium is an essential mineral, important for many normal body functions, including maintaining proper heart rhythm, neuromuscular transmission, food metabolism and growth. 200 mg magnesium is provided from 1,111 mg magnesium glycinate chelate.
Magnesium is an essential mineral to the human body. It is needed for bone, protein, and fatty acid formation, making new cells, activating B vitamins, relaxing muscles, clotting blood, and forming adenosine triphosphate (ATP; the energy the body runs on). The secretion and action of insulin also require magnesium.
Where is Magnesium found?
Nuts and grains are good sources of magnesium. Beans, dark green vegetables, fish, and meat also contain significant amounts.
