Magnesium bisglycinate demonstrates better absorption than other magnesium supplements. A crossover study found that serum levels of magnesium over eight hours were highest for magnesium bisglycinate, followed by dimagnesium malate and magnesium oxide.
The glycine in this ingredient enhances its solubility and absorption by decreasing the pH of the intestines. The glycine that takes up space on the magnesium molecule also decreases the propensity of the magnesium to complex with plant-based phytates that would otherwise interfere with its absorption.
Because an athlete needs to know that his or her supplements are trustworthy and compliant, every batch of an NSF Certified for Sport product is tested for compliance with label claims and to ensure the absence of more than 200 substances banned by many major athletic organizations, including stimulants, narcotics, steroids, diuretics, beta-2 agonists, and masking agents.
