Magnesium is considered a macromineral, an essential mineral not created in the body, that is required in large amounts for optimal health.* The typical western diet does not get enough magnesium, and it is estimated that more than half of all adult Americans are likely deficient in this mineral. There are a variety of magnesium supplement forms that can efficiently restore the body’s magnesium levels, however some are better utilized by the body than others.* Magnesium bisglycinate and magnesium citrate are forms that are more bioavailable and much more easily absorbed by the body.*
