A Dietary Supplement
Glycinate. When extra magnesium is needed, our Amino-Mag 200™ is an
excellent choice. It supplies 200 mg. of elemental magnesium per tablet
as a unique, patented amino acid chelate. This special
glycinate/lysinate combination can be absorbed intact, providing high
bioavailability of magnesium. Plus, it's exceptionally well-tolerated
and without G.I. side-effects.
Amino-Mag 200 may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to increase their dietary intake of magnesium.
Magnesium plays an essential role in a
wide range of funda-mental cellular reactions. More than 300 enzymes
require magnesium as a cofactor. Complexed with ATP, the main carrier
of metabolic energy in the body, magnesium is essential for all
biosynthetic processes, glycolysis, formation of c- AMP,
energy-dependent membrane transport, transmission of genetic code for
protein synthesis, and muscle function.
Of the 20-30 grams of
total body magnesium, about 40% is located in muscle and other soft
tissues, and the remainder in bone. The concentration of intracellular
magnesium is carefully regulated, and its alterations can have profound
effects on cardiac and skeletal muscle physiology. Healthy people
require about 4.5 mg of dietary magnesium per kg body weight, or 280 mg
for a 62 kg female and 350 mg for a 76 kg male.
The U.S. RDA is
400 mg/day. The efficiency of magnesium absorption is a function of
dietary intake. At very low intakes (less than 40 mg) 65-70% of dietary
magnesium is absorbed, whereas at high intakes (1,000 mg) less than 15%
is absorbed. Most people are expected to absorb about 30-60% at common
levels of dietary magnesium. Contrary to common belief, recent studies
suggest that magnesium absorption is not affected by calcium or vitamin
D, and vice-versa.
The kidney plays a critical role in
magnesium homeostasis. At average magnesium intakes, the kidneys
reabsorb about 95% of the filtered magnesium. Douglas Laboratories’
glycine/lysine chelate used in Amino-Mag 200 is a well absorbed and
highly tolerated form of magnesium.
200 contains a patented amino acid chelate of magnesium glycinate and
magnesium lysinate providing 200mg of elemental magnesium per tablet.
