Benefits of a Chelated Magnesium Supplement
With 75 percent of Americans being magnesium deficient, there’s a good chance you could be one of them.
Why is this important?
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!
With that in mind, here’s what you need to know about magnesium supplements:
Magnesium products are not 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.
For example, Doctor Best’s chelated magnesium is absorbed 8.8 times better than non-chelated magnesium oxide.
