Magnesium is a cofactor of more than 300 enzymatic reactions, such as the synthesis of carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids and proteins, and is necessary for specific actions in various organs in the neuromuscular and cardiovascular systems. Magnesium glycerophosphate is a true chelate, and is a highly bioavailable form of magnesium for many reasons.
- Magnesium absorption occurs throughout the small intestine, and the colon may also play a role.
- The solubility of minerals is an essential factor for their absorption, and pH is key to solubility.
- Magnesium glycerophosphate is a highly bioavailable magnesium.
