    An Essential Mineral that Supports 300+ Biochemical Processes

  • Relieve Occasional Muscle Cramping

    Occasional muscle cramps can be the result of an imbalance of calcium and potassium. Magnesium supports healthy regulation of these minerals for healthy muscle function.9

  • Boost Energy and Metabolism

    Magnesium helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels already in normal range and supports the chemical reactions that metabolize carbohydrates and fats.10,11

  • Strengthen Bones

    Calcium, vitamin D, copper and zinc are needed for bone health and magnesium plays a critical role in regulating these vitamins and minerals.12

  • Support Physical Fitness

    Healthy muscle and nerve function rely on adequate levels of magnesium. Magnesium supplementation may help curb the effects of day to day physical stress on the body.13

Bioavailable Form of Supplemental Magnesium with an Optimal Dose

Buffered, chelated magnesium glycinate that’s easy to take

Magnesium deficiency is crazy common in America; most people don’t realize that they aren’t getting enough magnesium through their diets. Occasional muscle cramps (charley horse, anyone?) and headaches can tip people off, but because magnesium plays a role in so many biochemical processes, magnesium deficiency can be difficult to recognize.1

Even if you listen to Mom and eat your greens on par with Popeye (magnesium occurs naturally in green leafy vegetables such as spinach and swiss chard as well as avocados and a variety of nuts and seeds), it’s likely that you aren’t getting enough magnesium. This is because most produce today is grown in mineral-depleted soil.Plants can only absorb magnesium; they don’t actually produce it. Mineral-depleted soil means magnesium-deficient greens.3

Magnesium can be a tricky mineral to absorb depending upon what it binds to. When magnesium is absorbed from the soil by vegetables, it binds to amino acids in the plant. The amino acids help our body absorb the magnesium efficiently when we eat foods rich in this mineral. Magnesium Glycinate is a form of magnesium that is “chelated” or attached to the amino acid glycine. Magnesium glycinate has been shown to have superior bioavailability in the gut, meaning you absorb the majority of what you consume. Because what’s the point of taking magnesium if your body isn’t able to absorb and use it?

That being said, glycine is a large compound and limits the amount of magnesium you can put in a capsule. Buffered Magnesium Glycinate includes 82% magnesium glycinate and 18% magnesium oxide to increase the dosage of magnesium per capsule. Additionally, incorporating magnesium oxide with magnesium glycinate increases the bioavailability of magnesium oxide by optimizing pH in the gut.4,5 This form of magnesium eliminates the “inconvenient” laxative effect that is so typical with other magnesium supplements.6

 

The ingredients inside Magnesium Glycinate

  • No Laxative Effect

    Check out the reviews and you’ll see the thing people most love about our Magnesium Glycinate is that there’s no laxative effect, in contrast to so many other magnesium supplements.6

  • Buffered Magnesium Glycinate for Maximum Absorption and Optimal Dose

    Of all of the various forms of supplementary magnesium available, buffered magnesium glycinate is highly bioavailable while still offering an optimal dose in one capsule, which means your body is able to extract more benefit.7

  • No Added Calcium

    We leave the calcium out of our magnesium supplement so that you have a better shot at absorbing all the magnesium you need.8

  • Non-GMO and Vegan

    We are relentless about sourcing the best, most ethically produced ingredients available. The active ingredients in Nested Naturals Magnesium Glycinate are 100% non-GMO and vegan.

  • Pure and Made with Love

    We make our Magnesium Glycinate with love. We believe that nutritional supplements should be like mother’s milk: full of good stuff, but nothing extra. We don’t add any sugar or preservatives.
