This high absorption magnesium is a great product. I like it because it is made more bio-available through chelation. Which means that they attached the magnesium with the amino acids L-Lysine and L-Glycine. According to Merriam – Webster, bio-available means: the degree and rate at which a substance (such as a drug) is absorbed into a living system or is made available at the site of physiological activity. In simpler terms, it is how much the body absorbs and uses.
Merriam – Webster defines Chelate this way: to combine with (a metal) so as to form a chelate ring. In Doctor’s Best magnesium the magnesium is bonded to the two amino acids. This allows the magnesium molecule to pass through cell walls more efficiently. The idea behind this is that attaching the magnesium to an amino acid will allow the magnesium to pass into the body more fully than on its own. In a way, it is attempting to sneak magnesium into the show. By getting through the gate with two amino acids that have tickets.
