HOW IT WORKS
Magnesium is a macro mineral, essential to the proper utilization of other minerals in the body, including calcium and phosphorus. Magnesium is also critical to energy production and to over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body. It helps metabolize carbohydrates, proteins and fats, plus other minerals and nutrients, including vitamin C.
WHY OUR MAGNESIUM?
We offer two forms of magnesium: magnesium oxide and an amino acid chelate. Magnesium oxide provides more magnesium than other forms. And magnesium amino acid chelate is an electrolyte that is easily absorbed by the body. Blending these two together offers great value and bioavailability. And our complementary herbal base features licorice root (used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to support metabolism), kelp (provides iodine for the thyroid gland) and white willow bark (supports nervous system health with naturally occurring salicin, flavonoids and glycosides).
