What Is Magnesium Glycinate/Lysinate?
Magnesium Glycinate/Lysinate is a highly bioavailable form of magnesium supplement that provides that contains around 100mg magnesium per gram. As with most magnesium supplements the magnesium ion is bound to a carrier; in the case of magnesium citrate it is citric acid, in the case of magnesium glycinate/lysinate it's bound to the amino acids glycine and lysine.
Glycine and lysine are essential amino acids that have a very low molecular weight, the pass though the gastrointestinal tract with ease. As such when minerals such as magnesium are bound to them they the attached minerals are very easily absorbed and well tolerated.
