Magnesium Benefits

Call Me's Key Ingredient Spotlight - Magnesium Glycinate:

We are in our Magnesium Glycinate Era and we are never looking back. Magnesium, a multi-beneficial & multifaceted supplement, is finally getting its flowers because of TikTok Wellness & Women’s Health Gurus but it’s nothing new or groundbreaking. 

In fact, you may even have your own stash under your bathroom sink or pantry without knowing it. Epsom salts? Magnesium Sulfate. Your “Calming” drink powder? Magnesium Citrate. Milk of Magnesia in your medicine cabinet? Magnesium Hydroxide. Even the almonds in your snack stash are a source of magnesium.

Possible Key Benefits:

Magnesium has been known to have numerous benefits including relaxing muscles, regulating bowl movements, relieving certain kinds of headaches, encouraging skin clarity & texture, lowering blood pressure, regulating blood sugar, easing anxiety symptoms, reducing premenstrual symptoms such as cramps, etc. 


Why Magnesium Glycinate? 

We knew we wanted to include Magnesium in our drinks but also wanted to ensure we chose a form that is more... gentle on your constitution. While magnesium citrate is effective, it can also loosen things up a little too much or cause cramping if you ingest more than your body needs or is used to. Which is why you will usually see a disclaimer to take as much as your bowels will tolerate. 

Magnesium glycinate is a combination of elemental magnesium & the amino acid glycine (an amino acid essential component of physiological functioning). This form of magnesium is highly bioavailable. But what does that mean? The magnesium is easily absorbed through your small intestine. Basically…it can encourage feelings of calmness, muscle relaxation, AND with a notably lower risk of bowel intolerance. 

We added a touch of Magnesium Glycinate to our drink which is known to relax the body and calm the mind.
