Suggested Use: 1 to 2 capsules twice daily with food or as directed by your healthcare provider.
Sanjevani Magnesium Chelate Complex is an easy-to-absorb, supplemental form of magnesium, a critical mineral element required as a cofactor in more than 300 enzymes. Magnesium in this formula is most bioavailable and GI friendly form magnesium bisglycinate chelate.
Magnesium plays a fundamental role in numerous cellular functions including energy production, skeletal and cardiac muscle function, neurochemical transmission, bone formation, insulin secretion, calcium, sodium and potassium balance, and synthesis of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids.
Sanjevani Magnesium Chelate Complex has numerous beneficial actions in the body, including:
- Muscle Relaxation: Magnesium exerts a relaxant effect on muscles by inhibiting calcium influx and smooth muscle contraction.
- Bone Formation: Magnesium is essential for bone matrix formation and helps maintain bone strength. Magnesium deficiency can result in low calcium and cause vitamin D abnormalities.
- Cardiovascular Function: Magnesium may play an important role in regulating blood pressure and cardiac rhythm and assisting cardiac muscle function.
- Blood Sugar Metabolism: Magnesium is involved in glucose metabolism and insulin action. More than 30% of diabetics are low in magnesium. Low levels have been linked to insulin resistance and abnormal glucose tolerance.
Many common magnesium supplements, such as inorganic magnesium salts, have limited solubility and bioavailability and may induce adverse gastrointestinal side effects including diarrhea in some individuals these are forms like magnesium oxide.
Sanjevani Magnesium Chelate Complex in contrast to other magnesium products contains a more bioavailable and well-tolerated form of magnesium (magnesium bisglycinate chelate) that is easy to digest and absorb.
While magnesium salts must first dissociate into a free magnesium ion before it can be absorbed either through passive absorption or bound to amino acid carriers present in the diet, magnesium chelate contains magnesium pre-attached to an amino acid carrier. This allows it to pass readily through the intestinal epithelium. In addition, although absorption of free magnesium ion is susceptible to interference by other nutrients, absorption of magnesium chelate is not disrupted by other nutrients. As a natural absorptive form, magnesium amino acid chelate is exceptionally well-tolerated and has a very low incidence of adverse side effects. Unlike many forms of magnesium that commonly cause digestive disturbances including diarrhea, Sanjevani uses Albion® magnesium bisglycinate chelate which rarely causes side effects. Albion’s unique manufacturing process produces a true chelate in which the mineral and amino acid form a unique three-dimensional structure which protects the mineral compound from unwanted interactions during digestion yielding a highly bioavailable, natural absorptive form of magnesium.
Magnesium deficiency is common among all age groups. Food processing is a major cause of magnesium depletion. As much as 85% of the magnesium content of whole wheat is lost when refined to white flour. In addition, the sole content of magnesium has also been depleted over the past few decades. Deficiencies may also be caused by excessive calcium intake, moderate-to-excessive alcohol consumption, gastrointestinal disturbances such as diarrhea, kidney dysfunction and the use of some diuretics, estrogens and corticosteroids.
