Tri-Magnesium Power combines three highly absorbable forms of magnesium to support cardiovascular health. An easy-to-mix powder provides 300 mg of elemental magnesium per serving. This product contains three forms of magnesium that may be beneficial for energy production, heart health, blood vessel function, and healthy blood glucose metabolism. The drink contains no artificial sweeteners or stevia and is naturally sweetened with monk fruit.
More than 300 biochemical reactions in the body require magnesium. In cells, it is the second most abundant mineral. Magnesium supports cardiovascular health in a variety of ways. Magnesium supports a healthy inflammatory response, protects against oxidative stress, and supports healthy energy levels. In addition, magnesium has been shown to support a healthy response to blood coagulation. Also, magnesium helps maintain cellular balance with other minerals, such as calcium and potassium.
Tri-Magnesium Power contains forms of magnesium that support cardiovascular health. There are two components in magnesium orotate: magnesium and orotic acid. Magnesium is brought into the cells by orotic acid. Orotic acid may also support energy production. Magnesium orotate has been shown in studies to support individuals undergoing treatment for certain cardiovascular diseases, as well as supporting a healthy response to exercise. In individuals with heart disease histories and low magnesium levels, magnesium glycerol phosphate supports heart health.
Meet the Magnesium’s
There are two components to this form of magnesium: magnesium and orotic acid. Orotic acid facilitates magnesium’s entry into cells by acting as a transporter. Pyrimidines are also synthesized using orotic acid as an intermediate. A study conducted on animals found that orotic acid stimulated the release of uridine in the bloodstream, improving myocardial purine and pyrimidine levels. (1)(2)
Magnesium in this form supports cardiovascular health. In a study of participants with mild-to-moderate hypomagnesemia and atrial fibrillation, magnesium glycerophosphate was associated with a decrease in prevalence of ventricular ectopy. In comparison to other forms of magnesium, magnesium glycerophosphate has shown to have no traditional side effects. (3)(4)(5)
TRAACS® Magnesium Bisglycinate Chelate
The magnesium amino acid chelate in this product is absorbed via dipeptide channels, bypassing the usual active transport and passive diffusion routes for intestinal ion absorption, where magnesium would otherwise compete with other minerals. As compared to many other forms of magnesium delivery, this method allows larger amounts of magnesium to be absorbed more quickly and retained by the body for longer periods of time. A magnesium-glycine complex protects magnesium from binding to dietary phytates and tannins, thus enhancing bioavailability and reducing interference with absorption. When magnesium and glycine break their bonds, the body is able to use both minerals and amino acids. (6)(7)
People with inflammatory bowel conditions, among whom 86% have overt magnesium deficiencies, have been shown to benefit from this form of magnesium. In contrast to chelates, those with compromised intestinal mineral absorption excrete twice as much magnesium when given insoluble salt forms (such as magnesium oxide). In contrast to other forms of magnesium supplementation, this amino acid chelate may be especially beneficial for those who require high doses of magnesium, since relatively high doses result in fewer unwanted gastrointestinal side effects. The use of chelated magnesium has been shown to reduce pain associated with dysmenorrhea and the frequency and severity of leg cramps in pregnant women. (8)
Other Benefits of Magnesium
Exercise requires more magnesium than rest, depending on the activity When you exercise, magnesium helps move blood sugar into your muscles and dispose of lactate. Magnesium supplements may improve exercise performance in older adults and those with magnesium deficiencies. Magnesium intake was associated with increased muscle mass and power in a study of 2,570 women. (9)(10)(11)
Keeping your heart healthy and strong requires magnesium. Studies have shown that magnesium supplements can help lower high blood pressure levels, which may contribute to heart disease. In another study, magnesium intake was associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure. (12)(13)
Inflammation plays a key role in chronic disease and aging, which is linked to low magnesium intake. According to a review of 11 studies, magnesium supplements reduce levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of inflammation. According to other studies, magnesium supplements may reduce CRP and other markers of inflammation, such as interleukin-6. (14)(15)(16)
