FAQ

The name Magnesium Glycinate means that Magnesium is bonded (chelated) with an amino acid, glycine. Chelation makes Magnesium more gentle on your gut and less likely to induce an unwanted laxative effect. The bonding with glycine also increases Magnesium bioavailability, directing it where it should go for more efficient absorption. Magnesium Bisglycinate is the evolved form of Magnesium glycinate - it has two bonds with glycine amino acids, making it even better absorbed for more benefits and fewer side effects.
NutriRise's supplements are made in the USA in GMP-certified facilities. Our products are tested four times throughout our supply chain - once when we receive raw ingredients, then again during manufacturing, with further testing on finished products. Finally, products are third-party tested by an unbiased, independent organization. We ensure that our products meet exacting specifications and that they are safe. All raw materials and finished products are tested in the United States.
The organic rice hulls in our magnesium supplement work as a natural anti-caking agent that prevents the powder in our capsules from forming lumps. We choose organic rice hulls because we prefer to use natural ingredients instead of synthetic ones whenever possible.
Magnesium is the 4th most abundant mineral in your body. It plays a crucial role in over 300 enzymatic actions. Your body needs Magnesium to produce DNA for new cells, support cellular proliferation, protein formation, and day-to-day metabolic functions. In other words, your body can build tissues in bone, blood, teeth, nerves, and muscle cells because of the availability of Magnesium. In one study, patients with sleep issues who received a dietary supplement of 500 mg of Magnesium daily for 8 weeks experienced significant increases in sleep time, sleep efficiency, and less insomnia. They also experienced a reduction in early morning awakening.
About 50% of the American population is deficient in Magnesium. Early signs of magnesium deficiency include loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and weakness. As the deficiency worsens, numbness, tingling, muscle contractions and cramps, seizures, abnormal heart rhythms, and coronary spasms can occur.
Yes. Muscle cramps and spasms are often a result of magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is involved in over 300 enzymatic actions in the body, and one of its primary functions is neuromuscular transmission and muscle contraction. One important manifestation of its deficiency is extreme muscle contraction - causing cramps and spasms. Replacing lost Magnesium can often result in dramatic improvement.
Yes. In anxiety disorders, there is increasing evidence of the role of micronutrient deficiency, such as Magnesium. Clinical studies have shown the relationship between Magnesium and anxiety. Magnesium's role in modulating neurotransmission is key to its effect on mood. In addition, Magnesium intake has been shown to control the activity of the primary stress response system in the body, called the HPA axis. The HPA axis generates different responses to stress, including hormonal and behavioral changes. These responses can elicit anxiety symptoms.
Yes. Magnesium naturally draws water into your intestines, making your bowel movements softer and easy to pass. Because magnesium bisglycinate has two glycine molecules bonded to Magnesium, its effect is gentle. No need to worry about diarrhea.
Recent studies have shown that low Magnesium is an important factor in the mechanism of a migraine attack. Magnesium deficiency leads to the generation and release of the substance P, believed to act on sensory fibers and produce headache pain. Magnesium supplementation has a positive effect in alleviating the symptoms and relieving the pain of headaches and migraines.
While everyone needs Magnesium in their bodies, individual requirements differ depending on your age and other health conditions. It is essential to consult with your doctor or healthcare provider before starting any Magnesium supplement.
Yes. Some studies have proven a significant reduction in pain by administering Magnesium to patients. The reason behind this is due to a cascade of biochemical reactions that happen inside the body to create the sensation of pain. One of the crucial steps in the process is the calcium-induced activation of NMDA receptors, which induces peripheral and central sensitization we experience as a 'painful sensation'. As Magnesium works as a natural antagonist of NMDA and calcium, it can regulate the activation of NMDA receptors, thereby reducing the trigger causing nerve pain.
Recently, micronutrient deficiency such as Magnesium has been associated with depression. When magnesium levels in your body are low, it triggers a chain of adverse biochemical reactions that ultimately manifest in mood disorders. One study involving over 8,800 people showed that adults under the age of 65 with a low magnesium intake had a 22% higher risk of developing depression.
Magnesium is plentiful in green leafy vegetables, legumes, bananas, avocados, nuts, or whole grains. Dark chocolate and tofu are also good sources. But even though several foods are sources of Magnesium, around 50% of the American population is deficient in Magnesium.
Studies have uncovered a link between magnesium and vitamin D levels in recent years. In many cases, vitamin D deficiency cannot be reestablished by vitamin D supplementation alone - you need an optimum magnesium level to keep your vitamin D levels at a healthy range. Scientists believe that Magnesium is required for the proper functioning of enzymes involved in vitamin D production.
