Did you know that 55% of North Americans are deficient in daily magnesium intake, and that 20% are chronically below the recommended daily allowance?
Magnesium is one of the most under-utilized macro nutrients in our diets. It is essential for activating over 300 enzyme reactions in the body, is crucial for nerve transmission, muscle relaxation, blood coagulation, energy production, nutrient metabolism and bone and cell formation.
So how do you know if you're one of the 75% to 80% of people who need magnesium? Magnesium deficiency can cause noticeable symptoms including muscle spasms (those charley horses in your legs!), anxiety, irritability, lethargy, impaired memory and cognitive function, loss of appetite, weakness, tremors, migraines, difficulty sleeping, facial tics, eye twitches, depression, and is associated with conditions like ADHD, Restless Legs, Chronic Pain and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Pure Lab Vitamins’ Magnesium Glycinate has been developed in the compounding lab of a community pharmacy in Ottawa, On. It has been used in its original formula since 2002.
From day one, when Pure Lab compounded the first batch of original Magnesium Glycinate, the patient feed back was overwhelming. Not only were patients able to tolerate much higher doses of magnesium without getting loose stools/diarrhea, but more importantly, these patients reported almost immediate improvement of their muscular issues. Pain levels dropped, flexibility increased, strength increased. Most patients reported to have more energy, which they explained with better and deeper sleep.
Magnesium Glycinate is considered to be one of the most bio-available forms of magnesium. Magnesium bound to the smallest of the 20 amino acids, L-Glycine, can be considered hydrophilic (water soluble) and hydrophobic (fat soluble), due to glycinate’s single hydrogen atom side chain and overall small molecular size. This amphiphilicity is the reason for Mg-glycinate’s high absorbability and fantastic deep tissue availability.Pure Lab Magnesium Glycinate is prescribed by physicians at CHEO, the Childrens Hospital of Eastern Ontario and is recommended by the Ottawa Hospital - Chronic Pain Clinic.
Here are some testimonials provided by Pure Lab:
"I was shocked, after being on magnesium malate for a year, it still took 6 glycinate capsules to achieve bio-tolerance. Anyway I'm down to 2 caps at bedtime and feeling good. Thank you." -- Marc E.
"I just can't live without these Magnesium Glycinate pills. They stop my leg cramps and let me sleep. Best thing I have ever used." -- Marian C.
