Magnesium is required for over 300 different biochemical reactions in the body. Advanced Magnesium Complex® is a highly bioavailable formula that combines four sources of magnesium into one comprehensive supplement to ensure the body’s magnesium needs are met. This formula includes Magnesium Aspartate, Magnesium Ascorbate, Magnesium Malate and Magnesium Glycinate. They are most easily metabolized by various systems in the body, and each form provides more benefits than just magnesium alone. Magnesium is critical for the energy producing processes in the body–because magnesium binds with ATP (adenosine triphosphate) to create and utilize the energy that we use in our bodies. Included are equal parts of malate and aspartate ions to support the malate/aspartate shuttle, an important metabolic process involved with energy production in the body. Decreased magnesium levels have been linked with decreased vitamin C levels, which is why magnesium ascorbate is part of this formula. Magnesium glycinate is included as the primary source of magnesium, as it is the gentlest on the digestive tract and won’t cause diarrhea.
