Magnesium: Chelation and absorption.

With 75 percent of Americans being magnesium deficient, there’s a good chance you could be one of them. Magnesium is one of your body’s hardest working minerals. It’s a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems, necessary for energy production and the structural development of bone, and even required for the synthesis of DNA. There is also a link between good magnesium levels and healthy blood pressure. Now that’s a vital mineral!

Magical Mineral Facts

Magnesium products are not all created equal. Therefore, I recommend that you consider supplements using magnesium that is chelated. Chelation improves absorption and results in less stomach irritation while preventing the laxative effect found in non-chelated magnesium.

Now that's what we call high absorption

Doctor's Best’s 100% chelated magnesium is absorbed 8.8 times better than non-chelated magnesium oxide.
