How the differnt types of magnesium effect the body.

As mentioned in the previous post my favourite type of Mg is Herbs Of Gold, Mag Forte (tablet form)

It contains- Mg Citrate, Mg Glycinate, Mg amino acid chelates and Mg orotate and the benefits are listed below.

Mg Citrate (salt)

• Works with nucleic acids to produce energy

• Is involved in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate protein production

• Signals transmission in nerves and muscles, blood pressure, blood glucose, and other functions.

• Can have a laxative effect which can help relieve constipation.

Mg Glycinate-

• Aids sleep

• Raises Mg levels quickly

• Reduces anxiety

• Highly bio available, most absorbable

• Raises levels quickly

• Doesn’t have laxative effect

• Promotes bone health

• Maintains normal heart rhythms

• Reduces PMS

• Amplifies sport performance

Mg Orotate-

• Improves athletic endurance

• Improves heart health

• Easily absorbed

Mg Chelate-

· Is bound to an amino acid or another organic molecule.

· This process, called chelation, helps to improve the absorption and bioavailability of magnesium in the body.

Take mag forte with food, best taken in the evening as I find it can make you drowsy if taken during the day. Start with one tablet and take a half tab, half an hour later then another half 30 minutes after that. Stop if it gives you loose stools.

Magnesium, other ways of using it-

Magnesium spray- spray onto skin.

Local Magnesium floats

Magnesium (Epsom salts from the supermarket) to a bath or foot bath.

All these ways will help your muscles relax. Experiment with a few different ways of applying it at different rates and find what works best for you.
