Our Magnesium Glycinate® is formulated for Optimal Absorbability!
The Miracle Mineral- Magnesium!
Magnesium is known as the “Miracle Mineral” because it is involved in practically every body reaction there is? Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most common nutrient deficiencies today; It is estimated up to 80% of adults are deficient in magnesium because stress, alcohol, processed foods, antibiotics and other common medications quickly deplete this critical, do it all mineral.
First of All, What is Magnesium?
This mineral is critical for many enzyme processes throughout the body including being involved directly with the proper absorption vitamins B1 and B6, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin D and zinc. Our bodies aren’t able to properly synthesize protein or produce certain hormones without this very important mineral, including a direct effect on premenstrual problems when deficient. In fact, Magnesium plays an important role in over 80% of the bodies metabolic functions!
5 Top Health Benefits of Magnesium Glycinate
Magnesium’s ability to regulate the flow of sodium and potassium in and out of cells is closely related to another of its essential functions, acting as a co-factor for over 300 enzymes in the human body.
The flow of magnesium from one compartment of the cell to another causes just enough change in the distribution of electrical charge that enzymes are activated or deactivated. The flow of magnesium onward to the next compartment stops the reaction magnesium catalyzes or starts the reaction that magnesium stops.
The presence of magnesium makes it possible for the body to make many compounds that otherwise would require a much more acidic environment than is healthy for the cell. Magnesium can “hand off” water to a chemical reaction or it can help amino acids form chains of proteins. Every enzyme involved in the storage of energy as ATP (adenosine triphosphate) requires magnesium, and magnesium is critical for stabilizing DNA and RNA.
Vitamins and minerals maintain a delicate balance inside your body and must co-operate to have their best effect. Because of this, it’s important to know what nutrients are helpful to each other.

Healthy magnesium levels protect metabolic health, stabilize mood, keep stress in check, promote better sleep, and contribute to heart and bone health.
Magnesium enables the muscles to recover faster from stress and fatigue and it allows your muscles to relax and regenerate. Magnesium binds to a special neurotransmitter called GABA which encourages relaxation as well as sleep. A dietary deficiency of magnesium may cause a lack of quality sleep, trouble falling asleep, or both. Magnesium can also reduce the stress response to exertion and increase red blood cells and hemoglobin in athletes. This is important for individuals who are sleep deprived, supplemental magnesium improves exercise tolerance.
Magnesium improves premenstrual mood swings by regulating mood-moderating brain chemicals and reducing inflammation, which has been linked to depression.
It eases menstrual cramps by relaxing uterine muscles spasms, improves blood flow and curbs the production of prostaglandins–a hormone-like chemical that triggers pain and inflammation.
Magnesium is a natural diuretic, helping the body shed excess fluid thereby reducing premenstrual bloat and breast pain. It has also been linked to cut down on menstrual migraines by affecting key brain structures and chemicals believed to play critical roles in the onset of migraines.
Magnesium naturally competes with calcium, which is essential for generating heart contractions.
When calcium enters your heart muscle cells, it stimulates the muscle fibers to contract. Magnesium counters this effect, helping these cells relax. This movement of calcium and magnesium across your heart cells maintains a healthy heartbeat. It also plays a key role with enzymes involved in generating electrical impulses which are an important component of how your cardiovascular system functions
What Makes A Good Quality Magnesium Glycinate?
Substantially More Effective than inferior forms of magnesium, such as oxide and citrate, Pure Prescriptions Magnesium Bisglycinate is 100% chelated and fully reacted for maximum absorption and bioavailability. It is also NOT buffered which means that our magnesium is NOT mixed with cheaper forms of the mineral.
Chelation helps protect the magnesium until it reaches the lower intestine where minerals are optimally absorbed*. The Bisglycinate form of Magnesium used by Pure Prescriptions is better than other forms of magnesium (e.g.- oxides, citrates and malates).
Magnesium is a key cofactor in 300 different enzymatic physiological processes in the body. It’s a very useful nutrient to our systems so we need a consistent abundant source of it. The very best form of magnesium is magnesium glycinate because it is highly absorbable. There’s nothing better, it’s top shelf! If your nutrient manufacturer is using mineral chelate of magnesium glycinate than you know they really care about your health.

Pure Prescriptions Magnesium Glycinate is a mineral supplement that helps support a proper magnesium level in the blood. Additionally, this supplement can help in maintaining the normal functioning of cells, nerves, muscles, kidneys, bones and the heart, as well as normal ranges of blood pressure and energy, and in managing menstruation. While a proper diet will also aid in achieving these goals, regular usage of magnesium glycinate can provide the necessary dosage of magnesium to sustain the appropriate balance that the human body needs of this essential mineral.
Our formula comes in vegetarian capsules and is well-tolerated without the laxative effect often associated with cheaper ineffective magnesium sources. This product is vegan & vegetarian.
Pure Prescriptions Magnesium Supplement is formulated by doctors and manufactured in the USA in a FDA-approved facility following strict GMP guidelines. This product is FREE of GMO, fillers, binders and most common allergens like gluten, soy, milk, egg, shellfish, corn, wheat, and peanuts.
