Why our form
Glycine, the amino acid in magnesium bisglycinate, helps decrease the pH of the small intestine, which improves magnesium bisglycinate’s solubility and absorbability.*
Two separate glycine molecules occupy an active site on each magnesium molecule, which reduces magnesium’s propensity to complex with phytates and other substances that can inhibit absorption.
Magnesium bisglycinate has a lesser laxative effect. Because glycine takes up active binding sites on the magnesium molecule, less water can attach to the magnesium, which reduces the laxative effect typically seen in magnesium compounds.
