Magnesium Glycinate Powder

  • Gentle glycinate form of magnesium for GI comfort
  • Supports healthy nervous system function and muscle relaxation
  • Supports normal sleep, mood, and feelings of calm

Who Needs Magnesium Glycinate Powder

Do you need to supplement with magnesium? Over half of the population is thought to be deficient in this essential mineral. However, many types of magnesium have laxative side effects. That’s why it's important to choose a well-absorbed form known to minimize unpleasant gastrointestinal (GI) reactions.

Magnesium Glycinate Powder provides 200 mg of magnesium glycinate chelate per serving. This well-tolerated form of magnesium is bound to glycine to support relaxation and GI comfort.

Magnesium Glycinate Powder is ideal for those seeking a gentle and well-absorbed form of magnesium. The convenient powder makes it easy to adjust your serving size, adjusting as needed. By binding magnesium to the amino acid glycine, it minimizes the GI side effects experienced from common magnesium supplements. Glycine also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain to support relaxation and a healthy response to stress.

Magnesium plays a role in over 300 enzymatic processes in the body. Found inside of your bones and muscles, magnesium is essential for healthy nervous system function, bone strength, and muscle relaxation.

According to some estimates, up to 75 percent of the U.S. population does not get enough magnesium. Unfortunately, serum magnesium tests do not accurately reflect magnesium status. This is because magnesium is often found within cells and not in the serum.

Magnesium deficiency can result in a multitude of symptoms: muscle cramps and twitching, heart palpitations, racing thoughts, fatigue, and poor sleep. Low magnesium intake also makes it challenging to maintain healthy blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

Magnesium Glycinate Powder by Seeking Health contains magnesium in the glycinate form. Compared to magnesium citrate and magnesium oxide, magnesium glycinate supplementation is less likely to stimulate GI upset or loose bowels. Chelating to the amino acid glycine reduces the irritation that magnesium can exert in the GI tract.

Glycine is also considered a calming amino acid. Glycine receptors in the brain regulate feelings of calm. Glycine supports healthy sleep, relaxation, and stress reduction. It has the most basic structure of all amino acids, making it very well-absorbed when bound to magnesium.

Magnesium Glycinate Powder supports healthy:

  • Magnesium levels
  • GI and stomach comfort
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Bone health and density
  • Sleep and mood
  • Blood pressure levels
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Immune system function
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Gene regulation and maintenance
  • Protein formation
  • Energy production

Magnesium Glycinate Powder offers all the benefits of magnesium in a convenient powder. Say goodbye to GI upset and hello to Magnesium Glycinate Powder by Seeking Health.

Key Ingredients In Magnesium Glycinate Powder

  • Magnesium glycinate chelate: Magnesium bound to glycine supports optimal absorption and utilization of magnesium, as well as relaxation and feelings of calm. This form of magnesium is well-absorbed and less likely to produce laxative effects or GI upset.

Why Magnesium Glycinate Powder Works

What do your hormones, bones, blood sugar, mood, and muscles all have in common? These areas of health all require the essential mineral magnesium to function.

Magnesium is a cofactor for hundreds of enzymatic processes and biochemical reactions in the body. It stabilizes ATP in these enzymes so it can be used as an energy source to make the enzymes work. By doing this magnesium helps to regulate protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, healthy blood pressure, and much more. By inhibiting calcium influx and smooth muscle contraction, it supports muscle relaxation. Magnesium is needed for glycolysis, oxidative phosphorylation, and energy production. It may contribute to the development and maintenance of healthy bone structure. It’s also critical for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and the antioxidant glutathione.

Research indicates that the dietary magnesium in food sources is declining. Some estimate that up to 75 percent of adults do not meet the recommended intake of 400 mg per day. Magnesium deficiency can have systemic impacts. Low mood, muscle twitching and cramps, elevated blood pressure, high blood sugar levels, and low energy can all result from insufficient levels.

Magnesium is lost with increased urination, diarrhea, alcohol use, kidney disease, diabetes, and certain medications such as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Magnesium requires adequate stomach acid to be absorbed. In fact, there is an FDA warning on some acid-blocking medications for hypomagnesemia with long-term use.

Magnesium Glycinate Powder provides 200 mg of magnesium glycinate chelate per serving. This well-tolerated form of magnesium is bound to glycine to support GI comfort, relaxation, and optimal absorption.

Glycine is the most basic of all amino acids. It is very easily absorbed and utilized by the body. By attaching magnesium to glycine, it greatly increases absorption of this mineral. Glycine also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain to promote feelings of calm and relaxation.

One of the major roles magnesium plays is related to mood and relaxation via the NMDA receptor in the brain. When the brain gets excited, a neurotransmitter called glutamate activates NMDA receptors to pull calcium into the cell, leading to excitation. Excessive NMDA receptor activation can lead to feelings of nervousness, sleeplessness, and rapid heartbeat. Magnesium regulates NMDA receptor activity by regulating the amount of calcium that can enter cells. By reducing NMDA activation, magnesium supports a healthy mood, sleep, and calmness.

Many people associate magnesium consumption with loose bowels and upset stomach. This association stems from people taking poorly absorbed forms of magnesium like magnesium oxide. It appears that less than 5 percent of magnesium oxide is absorbed across the intestinal lining. When unabsorbed magnesium is left in the intestines, water is released from the intestinal lining to flush it out. This contributes to the cramping, loose stools, and discomfort associated with magnesium supplementation.

At Seeking Health, we only use forms of magnesium that are well absorbed and well-tolerated. The glycinate form of magnesium in Magnesium Glycinate Powder appears to be one of the best choices for people with sensitive stomachs who have not previously tolerated magnesium. It is also ideal for those seeking the calming benefits of glycine. Now you can comfortably support healthy magnesium levels with Magnesium Glycinate Powder by Seeking Health.

    Magnesium review

    I take it for sleep. I can’t really tell if it makes a difference or not but I continue to take it because even a slight improvement is better than no improvement.

    Hi Dee -

    Magnesium is a wonderful nutrient which does support healthy sleep in many people.*

    If you are not experiencing the results you expect, it may not be magnesium you need.

    Consider Histamine Nutrients to support healthy onset of sleep .*

    Some people have high histamine levels which causes one to stare at the ceiling way too long at night.

    In health,
    Dr. Lynch

    My favorite Magnesium Glycinate Powder!

    I have tried other brands of Mag. Glycinate Powder and their taste is not desirable and does not dissolve easily into water. Most of all I like what the Seeking Health product achieves in my body, which is lack of muscle spasms and gut issues. I never like to run out!!!
