What is Magnesium Glycinate Good For?

Magnesium (Mg) Glycinate is a needed mineral that is among the most common things to take. The body depends on this mineral for hundreds of bodily functions including nerve signaling, building healthy bones and teeth, and normal muscle performance.

Hundreds of vitamins and enzymes depend on Mg to work properly as well. Mg is simply one of the most important that you will need.

Energy creation, protein formulation, and nervous system regulation, and healthy muscle movements are just a handful of the hundreds of processes that Mg is used for. There are many more benefits that happen all over the body as well.

Magnesium can help boost exercise performance since it helps move blood sugar into muscles and reduce fatigue by disposing lactate build up. Other benefits include the ability to fight depression and lower inflammation.

Two studies suggest that about 50% of US and Europeans don’t receive their required daily Mg intake, making Mg deficiencies quite common. The most common causes of deficiency are heavily processed diets, consistent alcohol consumption, and general digestive issues.

Unfortunately, deficiencies are extremely difficult to diagnose. Since the overwhelming majority is stored in the bones, a standard blood test cannot accurately measure Mg with only 1-2% being distributed in the blood.

Symptoms are also difficult to track and are unrelated to Mg deficiencies because of the hundreds of different functions Mg is used for. The two most common symptoms are muscle cramps and spasms.
