Magnesium is a necessary component of more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Because it plays an important role in the maintenance of muscle and nerve functions and the delivery of fluid to cell structures, magnesium keeps the heart rhythm steady, promotes normal blood pressure and blood sugar regulation. Magnesium is also known to support energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
This form of Albion’s magnesium is chelated (molecularly bonded) to glycine and glutamine, both are gluconeogenic amino acids that form non-carbohydrate derived glucose in times of need. Glutamine is also a key anabolic amino acid in muscle formation. As a result, this chelated form of magnesium is a powerhouse for any sport nutrition formula.
