Magnesium is an essential mineral needed for hundreds of enzymatic reactions in the body. It is required for the formation of healthy bones and teeth, and to support muscle function.
Stress Increases the Need for Magnesium
Stress of all types including chemical, emotional, hormonal, or physical stress depletes magnesium from the body. Since magnesium relaxes muscles and nerves, more magnesium is needed when you are under stress. When we are under stress our adrenal glands produce cortisol which further increases acidity in the body, thereby increasing the need for even more magnesium. Interestingly, many women crave chocolate during their premenstrual and menstrual period. (Chocolate is high in magnesium!)
Because magnesium is required in the metabolism of estrogen in the body, low levels of magnesium increase estrogen which can lead to estrogen dominance. Women on the birth control pill or hormone replacement therapy also become deficient in magnesium as the drugs deplete magnesium. Consult a health care practitioner to know if this product is right for you.
Not Enough Magnesium from Diet
Magnesium deficiency is common due to our consumption of processed foods and the depletion of magnesium from agricultural soils and water. Magnesium supplementation can help support so many things such as heart & muscle function, bone health, and the maintenance of normal electrolyte balance.

Not All Magnesium is Created Equal
Magnesium bisglycinate is magnesium bound to the amino acid glycine. This binding makes the magnesium highly absorbable. The bisglycinate form of magnesium does not require stomach acid for absorption as it passes into the cell via its amino acid transport, which means even those with poor digestion get the benefits.
