You know that you need more magnesium, but you sure don’t need the runs. We feel you! Unlike so many other magnesium supplements out there, our Magnesium Glycinate is chelated–which has several advantages, but the most often appreciated is that there’s no laxative effect.1
Epidemic of Magnesium Deficiency
Magnesium deficiency is crazy common in America; 2 most people don’t realize that they aren’t getting enough magnesium through their diets. Mysterious muscle cramps (charley horse, anyone?) and headaches can tip people off, but because magnesium plays a role in so many biochemical processes, symptoms of deficiency range widely and can be difficult to recognize.3
Check out this Chinese menu of symptoms that can point to magnesium deficiency:2-7
- Muscle soreness
- Muscle cramping
- Kidney stones
- High blood pressure
- Irritable bowel
- Irritable bladder
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.8 Plants can only absorb magnesium; they don’t actually produce it. Mineral-depleted soil means magnesium-deficient greens.9
We developed Nested Naturals Magnesium Glycinate to give you an easy, reliable way to get the recommended levels of this essential mineral. It is chelated, which eliminates the “inconvenient” laxative effect that is so typical with other magnesium supplements.1,10 It also gives you absorption rates of up to 80%, making it one of the most bioavailable forms of magnesium supplements available.1
This is pure magnesium with no additional nutrients. We leave the calcium out of our magnesium supplement so that you have a better shot at absorbing all the magnesium you need.12 It is formulated for maximum bioavailability and easy digestion. Because what’s the point of taking magnesium if your body isn’t able to absorb and use it?
