Best magnesium supplement for the wide application
We recommend the Magnesium Complex in case of multiple or difficult to specify complaints. Magnesium is at the basis of more than 300 biochemical processes in our body. An inadequate magnesium balance can therefore manifest itself in countless ways. That is why we have decided to unite all the organic magnesium forms that we offer separately in one supplement. In this way we combine the specific applications of the different forms, making the Magnesium Complex a widely applicable supplement.
Bisglycinate and taurate; for brain function *
Magnesium bisglycinate is a compound between magnesium and two (bis) molecules of the amino acid glycine. Magnesium taurate is a combination of the amino acid-like substance l-taurine and magnesium. The bonds to l-taurine and glycine make it easier for the magnesium to cross the blood-brain barrier. Subsequently, the absorption in the brain tissue of magnesium taurate and bisglycinate is also better than that of other magnesium forms. These combinations therefore lend themselves extremely well to an improvement of the state of mind, concentration and more mental energy *.
Malate and citrate; for muscle function *
Magnesium malate is a compound of magnesium and malic acid; magnesium citrate, in turn, is bound to citric acid. Both acids are part of the so-called citric acid cycle. This biochemical system guarantees most of the energy that our body produces in the cells. Moreover, research shows that our muscle tissue absorbs magnesium malate and citrate relatively well in comparison with other magnesium compounds. Therefore, these are excellent forms for fatigue and reduced muscle function!
Organic and chelated shapes
Magnesium malate, taurate, bisglycinate and citrate are organically bound forms of magnesium. Inorganic magnesium forms such as magnesium chloride, magnesium oxide and magnesium sulfate are less bioavailable and are therefore less well absorbed. For example, magnesium sulfate only has a bioavailability of 4%. This means that a dose of 200 mg magnesium sulfate is only effective for a mere 8 mg.
Our daily diet generally contains inorganically bound magnesium. These are the forms that occur in the soil and are absorbed by the plants that we eat every day. Examples of this are magnesium oxide and magnesium carbonate. Our body therefore only absorbs a small part of the magnesium that we get from regular food.
The best forms we know are magnesium chelates such as, magnesium taurate, magnesium malate and magnesium bisglycinate. The structure of an amino acid chelate is so strong that our gastric juice cannot split the form. This is due to the amino acids in the chelate form, which act as a protective layer for the magnesium, as it were. The magnesium bisglycinate thus reaches our intestines as a complete element, where our body then absorbs the valuable mineral. Furthermore, the amino acid chelated character ensures fewer stomach and intestinal complaints, in comparison to unchelated magnesium forms.
Vitamin B6 as pyridoxal-5-phosphate
Vitamin B6 ensures an improved absorption of magnesium. In addition, the vitamin has many scientifically based health-promoting effects for the body. For example, B6 is good for the production of red blood cells, protein production and cysteine production *. Pyridoxal-5-phosphate (the biologically active, coenzymatic form of vitamin B6) has better bioavailability and is safer than pyridoxine. We only use the form P-5-P in our products.
