Optimal Magnesium by Seeking Health provides 150 mg of high potency magnesium per vegetarian capsule. Magnesium is an important and abundant mineral naturally present in the body, which acts as a cofactor in hundreds of enzymatic processes and systems. It helps regulate biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, normal sugar and carbohydrate metabolism and healthy blood circulation. Magnesium is involved in normal muscle relaxation by inhibiting calcium influx and smooth muscle contraction. It is also important for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation, and glycolysis. It contributes to the maintenance and development of healthy bone structure and is needed for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and glutathione, an important antioxidant.*
Optimal Magnesium contains bioavailable Albion® DiMagnesium Malate and TRAACS® Magnesium Lysinate Glycinate Chelate. Magnesium malate is the combination of magnesium with malic acid, an acid found in vegetables and fruit. The weak bond with magnesium makes this form readily soluble in the body. Malic acid is a key component of several energy production reactions in the body. Highly absorbable and typically well-tolerated, the chelated form of magnesium in this product, magnesium lysinate glycinate, rarely causes adverse gastrointestinal side effects often seen with other forms of magnesium when consumed in higher amounts.*
For a magnesium supplement with added vitamin B6, consider our Magnesium Plus. For a magnesium supplement providing only magnesium malate in a chewable format, consider our Active Magnesium Chewable.
