Feature Summary

Magnesium bisglycinate is magnesium bound to the amino acid glycine. Magnesium is an important factor in routine muscle mass and repair.3* It also supports healthy metabolism, the ability to derive energy from proteins, carbohydrates, and fat.4* It helps maintain cardiovascular health by supporting healthy blood pressure already within the normal range, and helps maintain healthy insulin sensitivity and support plasma glucose levels already within the normal range.5,6* Magnesium needs can be increased by occasional stress, a temporarily unbalanced diet, coffee, and occasional alcohol consumption.7

Magnesium is the fourth most common mineral ion in the body and the second most common in cells, contributing to the health of both cardiac and skeletal muscles as well as the generation of ATP.8,9* It also contributes to nerve impulse transmission and bone mineralization.10,11* Magnesium may help maintain healthy muscle function throughout the lifespan, supporting healthy aging.12* The bisglycinate form is more efficiently absorbed than the more common oxide form.1

Drug Interactions

When taken together, magnesium can decrease the absorption of levodopa/carbidopa,14 quinolone antibiotics,15 and tetracycline antibiotics,16 and can increase the absorption of sulfonylureas.17 Magnesium levels may be depleted by aminoglycoside antibiotics18 amphotericin B,19 cyclosporine,20 digoxin,21 potassium-wasting diuretics, oral contraceptives,22 foscarnet,23 sodium phosphates,24 tacrolimus,25 and proton-pump inhibitors.9
