Magnesium is a cofactor in over 300 metabolic reactions. It is involved in the maintenance of muscle function, nutrient metabolism and muscle contraction, among several other important physiological roles. 3

Magnesium helps to maintain bone health by regulating the production of parathyroid hormone (PTH) and calcitriol, which helps to increase calcium absorption and minimize risk of calcium deficiency. 4 ,5

In Canada, insufficient magnesium intake is estimated to occur in more than one-third of adolescents and adults, with even higher levels of insufficient intake in elderly individuals. 6 ,7

Magnesium glycinate (also known as magnesium bisglycinate) is a highly water-soluble amino acid chelate of magnesium and two glycine molecules. Clinical evidence indicates that magnesium glycinate has a significantly higher bioavailability than magnesium oxide, and is less likely to cause a laxative effect. 1 ,2

Supplementation with magnesium glycinate has been shown to decrease the severity of muscle cramping. 2

In a clinical trial of 86 healthy pregnant women with recurrent muscle cramps, supplementation with 300 mg of magnesium glycinate for four weeks reduced both the frequency and intensity of leg cramps. 2
