Info: 200 g Powder; Available in Lemon/Lime or Raspberry Flavour
MAGsmart is comprised of highly absorbable magnesium glycinate along with malic acid, taurine, glutamine, vitamins and water soluble minerals. Simply mix with water for a delicious drink (with a lemon/lime flavour) to support healthy muscle function throughout the body; it can alleviate muscle tension, cramps, tics, restless leg syndrome, night spasms and twitches. A magnesium supplement like this can also help with a number of other conditions, including headaches due to muscle tension, high blood pressure, blood sugar issues (insulin response and glucose tolerance), chronic fatigue, and perhaps even attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism.
Hi, I'm Lorna Vanderhaeghe, author and natural health expert. I want to tell you about the marvelous benefits of magnesium.
Magnesium controls over 300 reactions in the body. A deficiency is implicated in irregular heartbeat, muscle pain, twitching eyelids, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, migraines, fibromyalgia, leg cramps, kidney stones, and so much more.
Over 78% of North Americans are deficient in magnesium. We should all be taking a magnesium supplement, but not all magnesium is created equal. Most magnesium supplements are poorly absorbed and cause diarrhea when taken in optimal doses. The best forms of magnesium are bound to amino acids, particularly glycine. Magnesium bisglycinate, also called magnesium glycinate, is a highly absorbable form of magnesium that crosses the blood-brain barrier, aiding sleep, improving mood and controlling headaches. Magnesium bisglycinate also stops muscle cramping and pain.
You would have to take four times the amount of magnesium carbonate or citrate to get the same benefit as magnesium bisglycinate. I love magnesium bisglycinate and I've used it to stop leg cramps caused from drinking too much coffee.
We have several magnesium bisglycinate formulas, but my favorite is MAGsmart. MAGsmart is a magnesium bisglycinate formula with added taurine for healthy blood pressure and reducing edema and those puffy bags under the eyes. MAGsmart also contains B vitamins, malic acid and other muscle-supporting nutrients.
MAGsmart is a delicious lemon-lime powder you can add to water, juice, or your smoothie for a great tasting drinking that works fast for teens, seniors, and athletes. Take MAGsmart at bedtime to aid restful sleep and to calm those restless legs.
