Highly absorbable and bio-avaliable magnesium chelate for sensitive individuals, now with ATA-Mg™ (Magnesium Acetyl-taurinate).*
Magnesium MD, a highly absorbable formula for sensitive individuals, has both Magnesium glycinate and ATA-Mg™ (magnesium acetyl-taurinate) making it a more bio-available source of both magnesium and taurine. By incorporating the ATA form of magnesium, it is more lipophiic and therefore has enhanced cellular, neuronal and blood-brain barrier penetration. This form has been studied for use in severe headaches and seizures. The glycine form of magnesium allows it to be actively taken up by the intestinal mucosa, due to the active transport for amino acids, as opposed to the usual passive transport for most minerals.*
Magnesium is a vital, abundant mineral in the body with a deficiency more prevalent in the adult population than ever before. Its primary distribution is between bone and muscle with surrounding soft tissue. 98% is contained within our cells while the remaining 1-2% flows with the serum outside our cells. Therefore, a standard serum test for Magnesium would not show or reflect a deficiency. Magnesium regulates over 325 enzymes in the body and plays a crucial role in the function of brain, muscle, metabolism, energy production, along with detoxification. Studies have shown benefit with Magnesium supplementation in the following:
Toxemia of pregnancy, arrhythmia, clearer mind, constipation relief, inflammatory lung congestion, migraine, improving glucose control, enhancing insulin metabolism, lowering blood pressure, relieving symptoms of difficult and painful menstruation, alleviating leg cramps (especially in pregnant women), decreases risks associated with metabolic syndrome, restless leg syndrome, anxiety, fatigue, tremours, and sleep disorders.*
We, at MD Prescriptives believe the optimal form of Magnesium Glycinate with ATA-Mg™ (Magnesium Acetyl-taurinate) that we provide our patients/clients is the preferred form for uptake and assimilation for the body as well as gastro-intestinal tolerance.*
