What is Swanson Ultra Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate?
In order to better understand just why Swanson Ultra Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate is so good for you, it makes sense to first understand just what the ‘chelation' process means.
Chelated magnesium is the result of bonding this essential mineral to a negatively charged group (also known as an anion) in two or more places. That negatively charged group is, in this instance, an amino acid - glycinate. There are others, such as Citrate but recent studies have shown that glycinate is perhaps the most effective.
Effective at what? You might well ask. When we consume minerals like magnesium naturally (it is readily available in foods such as broccoli, squash and dark, leafy green vegetables) our bodies aren't actually that capable of moving them through our digestive system and across the intestinal wall. A process crucial for us to get all their natural goodness around our bodies.
Magnesium, as you may have gathered, is fairly vital for a number of our body's processes. It is actually already present inside the human body at a whopping 25 g, as well playing a vital role in over 300 biochemical processes each and every day.
What is Swanson Ultra Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate used for?
When you consider that the average RDI for Magnesium stands at between 300-400 mg per day, you begin to understand just how important it is. Much like other minerals, its main role is in keeping your teeth and bones healthy but it can also help the heart, muscles and kidneys.
When we start to experience a magnesium deficiency there are several common symptoms. The more serious end of those problems are dangerous conditions like osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis has some pretty harrowing symptoms of its own.
