Magnesium Bisglycinate Powder by Thorne Research
Magnesium plays a wide range of roles within the body acting as a cofactor in over 300+ enzymatic reactions (3)! Magnesium helps us stay energized, promotes muscle relaxation and mental health, prevents hypertension and increases bone density. Because of its muscle relaxing effects, magnesium can also help to relieve constipation, muscle cramping or headaches. Its function is widespread and most of us are deficient!
It’s important to know that there are many different forms of magnesium with varying benefits and levels of bioavailability. Below are the three forms I recommend depending on your desired outcome. Magnesium Bisglycinate is highly absorbable and great if you’re not specifically looking for constipation relief.
