When dealing with conditions like Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Neuropathies, Spasms, Migraines, Restless Leg Syndrome, Chronic Constipation, Insomnia, or any combination thereof, you need to know, they can often times be traced back to one nutrient deficiency - Magnesium!
Pure Lab Vitamins’ Magnesium Glycinate has been developed in the compounding lab of a community pharmacy in Ottawa, On. It has been used in its original formula since 2002.
It was clear to us early on that Magnesium plays an important role in the alleviation of chronic pain, muscle pain, spasms and general relaxation.
Research on the NMDA receptors of chronic pain neurons brought our attention towards L-Glycine, an inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter itself.
And from day one, when we compounded the first batch of original Magnesium Glycinate, the patient feed back was overwhelming. Not only were patients able to tolerate much higher doses of magnesium without getting loose stools/diarrhea, but more importantly, these patients reported almost immediate improvement of their muscular issues. Pain levels dropped, flexibility increased, strength increased. Most patients reported to have more energy, which they explained with better and deeper sleep.
Magnesium bound to the smallest of the 20 amino acids, L-Glycine, can be considered hydrophilic (water soluble) and hydrophobic (fat soluble), due to glycinate’s single hydrogen atom side chain and overall small molecular size. This amphi-philicity is the reason for Mg-glycinate’s high absorbability and fantastic deep tissue availability.
We dug deeper and found it extremely helpful in other magnesium deficiency related conditions like Migraines, Restless Leg Syndrome, Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Insomnia, Chronic Constipation and even mild Anxiety Disorders.
It should not be overlooked as an aid in Diabetes, Osteoporosis, Heart Disease and Hypertension, Raynaud’s Syndrome, Asthma, Cystitis, Depression and probably many more conditions.
Today, Magnesium Glycinate is produced following the same simple and pure formula and its success speaks for itself. We could not keep up with the demand it generated in the compounding setting, so it is now a NPN licensed, Canadian product, used and recommended by MD’s, ND’s, Chiropracter’s, Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists and Health Professionals of all kinds.
