Each Magnesium Glycinate Chelate capsule by Designs for Health provides 150
mg of elemental magnesium. The chelated magnesium found in this supplement comes
from Albion Advanced Nutrition, which is known as one of the best mineral
chelators in the industry. Unlike some other magnesium supplements, Magnesium
Glycinate Chelate by Designs for Health should not cause loose stools or stomach
upset because of the stability of the chelate that is formed between two glycine
molecules and each magnesium ion. This is done through a patented process that
is brought to you by Designs for Health. Also, unlike other supplements, there
is no need to worry about absorption interference with other chelated mineral
products when you take Designs for Health’s Magnesium Glycinate.
What is Magnesium?
As one of the most abundant minerals found in the body, magnesium is
essential to good overall health. About half of the magnesium in the body is
found in the bone. The other half can be found in the cells of body tissues and
organs, and only about 1 percent is found in the blood. Although so little can
be found in the blood, this is a very crucial source of magnesium and the body
works extremely hard to keep its level at one percent.
As you might expect from such an abundant mineral, magnesium is essential for
many bodily functions. In fact, it is necessary for over 300 biochemical
reactions. It has a hand in maintaining nerve and muscle function, supporting
the immune system, keeping the heart’s rhythm steady and keeping the bones
strong. In addition, it helps to regulate levels of sugar in the blood and
promotes normal blood pressure. It may even be involved in metabolizing energy
and synthesizing proteins. Because of the myriad of functions it is involved in,
magnesium is being studied for its role in various diseases, including
cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes. Magnesium is absorbed in the
small intestines and excreted through the kidneys.
Gastrointestinal disorders, such as Crohn’s disease can limit the body’s
ability to absorb magnesium from food. Over time, these conditions can deplete
the body’s store of magnesium and result in a deficiency. Some evidence shows
that an overly acidic diet, rich in caffeine, processed foods and refined
sugars, can also lead to less than optimal levels of magnesium. Excessive loss
of magnesium may also come as the result of taking certain medications.
If you are experiencing magnesium deficiency, you might notice a loss of
appetite, vomiting, weakness or fatigue. However, as the deficiency gets worse,
you could experience numbness, muscle cramps seizures and personality changes.
If your magnesium levels aren’t corrected, you can end up depleting the body’s
store of calcium. If you think you might be suffering from a magnesium
deficiency, you should visit your doctor to discuss your symptoms. Many of the
symptoms of magnesium deficiency are similar to symptoms of other medical

Overall Rating for Magnesium Glycinate Chelate 120 Vegetarian Capsules
(based on 4 reviews)
By Scott from Los Angeles on December 26, 2011
Magnesium Glycinate Chelate relieves cramps and relaxes muscles within a few minutes. No digestive discomfort like magnesium citrate can have at higher doses. My research indicates magnesium glycinate to be the best form.
No digestive discomfort.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Great product for sleep and relaxation!!
By Judith Leonard from London, KY on May 15, 2011
My husband takes 2 to 3 capsules in the evening on an empty stomach about an hour before bedtime for sleeping. This product also helps to prevent acid reflux as ot relaxes the esophagus. I would love to be able to take this product, but the capsules are a little to large for me to swallow without using a thick juice like V8 (food).
It helps bring on sleep in the evening.
The capsules are a little too large for easy swallowing with water.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
