Magnesium has a positive influence on the functioning of the nervous system and contributes to the energy metabolism. Magnesium contributes to the reduction of fatigue. In addition, it contributes to brain and nerve functions involved in concentration, learning ability, memory and reasoning. Magnesium is beneficial for a good mental balance. Magnesium also contributes to a good electrolyte balance.
Magnesium has excellent absorbability in the form of magnesium bisglycinate - where each magnesium particle is bound (chelated) to two molecules of the amino acid glycine. Amino acid chelated magnesium has a higher bioavailability than other forms of magnesium such as magnesium oxide. The reason for this is that the bond between magnesium and the amino acid is so strong in a chelate that it does not cleave under the influence of stomach acid, in contrast to other magnesium compounds. The advantage of this is that magnesium bisglycinate reaches the small intestine as an amino acid and is taken up there by means of amino acid receptors. As is known, amino acids are excellently absorbed by the body. Definitely glycine, which is the smallest amino acid, hence this is specifically chosen. The problem with mineral compounds (such as citrates and oxides) that split in the gastrointestinal tract is that an electrically charged magnesium ion arises that can connect to non-absorbable substances from the diet (such as phytates) or will compete with other minerals in terms of absorption. And this does not benefit the bioavailability. Another plus is that many people tolerate magnesium bisglycinate better than other magnesium supplements, even in a higher dose. The magnesium bisglycinate is produced according to the patented Albion process, so you are sure to have a real amino acid chelate.
Taurine is an amino acid that fits perfectly in this product. Taurine has a direct synergistic effect on magnesium by promoting the absorption of this mineral in the cells and thereby supporting the effectiveness of magnesium.
