This excellent form of Magnesium can be taken at any time of day with no concerns about its absorption. Magnesium (and calcium, zinc and selenium) is liable to become bound to compounds called phytates which are found in cereals.
These compounds bind to Magnesium making it much harder for the Magnesium to free itself at the correct time for absorption. In the Magnesium Bisglycinate, magnesium binds with glycine protecting it from making stronger attachments to other binding agents like phytates. It is thought that the weaker binding energy allows the magnesium to split from the double glycine attachment when absorption is about to occur.
This product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
NEW POUCH PACKAGING
We at Metabolics are committed to sustainability and are constantly looking for ways to reduce our impact on the environment. As a part of this, we have introduced new, sustainable, home compostable pouches, as you can see here with our Magnesium Bisglycinate.
These new pouches offer the same protection for your supplements as our pots have done and are fully resealable whilst being made without plastic.
- A reduction in greenhouse gases
- Reduction of waste
- Nutrient-rich compost is made as a result of your waste
- Letterbox friendly
Many companies promote the fact that they have compostable packaging but this is often misleading as many compostable packaging options are only suitable for industrial composting facilities and would not decompose in a traditional home setting. Having always strived for transparency at Metabolics and by believing passionately in true sustainability, our new pouches are made from home compostable triplex laminate paper with a biodegradable zipper for a fully home compostable solution that decomposes in optimum conditions within 6 months. Optimum conditions are considered to be in the presence of oxygen, water and the microbes found in soil and compost; when the pouch is stored as specified on the label, the stated best before end date is maintained.
