Magnesium glycinate is bound to the amino acid glycine. Large amounts of glycine can be found in connective tissue and the brain. Magnesium glycinate is considered to be one of the most bioavailable magnesium compounds, and it positively contributes to normal protein synthesis, a healthy nervous system, and psychological functioning.
Magnesium taurate is bound to the amino acid taurine. Large amounts of taurine can be found in muscle and eye tissues, as well as the brain. Magnesium taurate contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, normal protein synthesis, and normal muscle functioning.
There are two types of magnesium citrate, which contain either approximately 7% or 15% elemental magnesium. The trimagnesium dicitrate we use has a high active ingredient content (15%), and is characterised by high bioavailability and absorption rates. Magnesium citrate is base-forming, contributes to energy metabolism, healthy muscles, electrolyte balance and protein synthesis.
Magnesium malate is a salt of malic acid and contributes to normal energy metabolism, the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and normal functioning of the nervous system.
Magnesium gluconate is a salt of gluconic acid (fruit acid), which can be found in kombucha. Magnesium gluconate is highly bioavailable and contributes to normal energy production metabolism and normal nervous system function. It also plays a role in cell division.
Magnesium ascorbate, also known as buffered vitamin C, is a salt of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). It is very well tolerated and has a high bioavailability.
Magnesium Carbonate from Sango Coral
Sango corals form calcium and magnesium carbonate structures in an optimal ratio of approximately 2:1, as can be similarly found in the human body (in teeth and bones). For this reason, Sango coral is also suitable for the production of dental implants which, instead of being rejected by the body, can grow together with the jaw and enrich its bone substance. Thanks to its highly porous structure, Sango coral is comparatively quickly absorbed for a carbonate, and in addition to calcium, it supplies more than 70 other trace elements.
Health Benefits of Magnesium
According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), magnesium contributes to:
- The reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- Electrolyte balance
- Normal energy-yielding metabolism
- Normal functioning of the nervous system
- Normal muscle function
- Normal protein synthesis
- Normal psychological function
- The maintenance of normal bones
- The maintenance of normal teeth
and magnesium has a role in the process of cell division.
