We have improved our formula by selecting a purer, more bioavailable magnesium source powder. As this magnesium powder is less dense, a slightly larger capsule is required. The new source material results in a more absorbable supplement and you may find 1 capsule daily is sufficient where 2 were required before.
Please see common questions for more information on the new formula.
Magnesium is an essential mineral that is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. As one of the body’s most abundant minerals, magnesium is commonly known for it’s role in supporting healthy bones and as an electrolyte supporting muscle contraction and the nervous system.
Magnesium also plays a critical role in energy production helping our bodies release energy from the food we eat, thereby supporting a reduction in tiredness and fatigue.
Optimal Absorption Chelate
Not all magnesium supplements are created equal and different forms are absorbed at different rates, this is referred to as the bioavailability of a supplement.
Magnesium glycinate is recognised as having a very high bioavailability, ensuring optimal absorption and utilisation by the body.
Magnesium is a critically important element involved in over 300 biochemical processes in the body. Magnesium contributes to normal energy yielding metabolism and contributes to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue. It supports normal muscle function, the maintenance of normal bones and teeth and contributes to electrolyte balance. Additionally, Magnesium supports the maintenance of normal psychological function.
Why Magnesium Glycinate?
Put simply, it’s very well absorbed compared to other forms of Magnesium. Magnesium Glycinate is an exceptionally bioavailable form of Magnesium.
Tell Me More About The New Formula
There are two changes included with the new formula; a more bioavailable magnesium powder and a subsequently larger capsule as the new magnesium is less dense. The new magnesium source material is run through additional filtration steps after reaction to remove all the unreacted magnesium oxide and glycine. The result is a purer, “fully reacted” magnesium glycinate which is more readily absorbed.
Why Did You Change The Formula?
Customers requested we produce a product where all traces of unreacted magnesium oxide were filtered out to further improve and enhance the product. Despite the cost increase, when the opportunity arose with our suppliers, we made the change.
Is The New Formula More Expensive?
Yes. The improved, purer source material is more expensive and it costs us around 40% more to produce a finished capsule. We feel it’s worth it as the end product is even more bioavailable. As a company we recognise budgets are tight at the moment and we aim to absorb the majority of this cost increase.
How much larger is the new capsule?
Around 10% larger. The old formula capsule was around 21mm, the new formula capsule is around 23mm.
What Is Fully Reacted Magnesium Glycinate?
Magnesium and Glycine must be fully reacted together to form a true bond or “chelate”. It’s not enough to simply “mix” Glycine and Magnesium in a supplement capsule together. That wouldn’t be Magnesium Glycinate, it would be Magnesium and Glycine unbound!
How Much Magnesium per Capsule?
Each capsule contains a minimum of 80mg of elemental Magnesium from fully reacted Magnesium Glycinate.
Why Don’t You Have More Elemental Magnesium Per Capsule?
Because it’s simply not possible without making the capsules far larger. Magnesium Glycinate is 10-11% elemental Magnesium by weight, the other 89-90% being Glycine. The density of the compound means you will struggle to physically fit any more powder into a capsule.
