Product Description

Magnesium bis-glycinate

Which one is right for me?

Effective supplementing of magnesium depends on two factors: how much you consume and how much your body can absorb. How much you can absorb depends on your lifestyle, your diet, stress levels, medications you may be taking, and age.

For most individuals, the Gentle formula will provide an effective dose that is easily absorbable. For individuals who are chronically stressed, older, or may be taking prescription medications, the Extra Gentle or Ultra Gentle will provide better absorption.

Goal Specific Magnesium Products

What do the 200, 140 & 80 numbers on your labels mean?

Those numbers refer to the amount of elemental magnesium in each capsule. For example, our Magnesium Bis-Glycinate 200 Gentle contains 200mg of elemental magnesium per capsule.

What do you mean by “pure”?

A pure product means that there are no flavors, fillers or impurities.

Do you add anything else to your magnesium bis-glycinate capsules?

Every capsule is packed with magnesium material. Even if we wanted to, there wouldn’t be enough room! The only thing we add is a minute amount of vegetable-grade magnesium stearate to help produce a consistent, uniformly-filled capsule. Nothing else!

What’s the difference between magnesium bis-glycinate and magnesium glycinate?

Conventionally, they mean the same thing. The terms are used interchangeably.

Blended, buffered, chelated - what do these mean?

There are three forms of magnesium bis-glycinate: blends, buffered chelates, and chelates. Magnesium bis-glycinate chelates (also known as ‘fully reacted’ or ‘fully chelated’ forms) bind magnesium ions to glycine molecules directly through a patented manufacturing process. Magnesium bis-glycinate blends deliver more elemental magnesium through a process of dry-blending magnesium oxide, chelates, and glycine. Buffered chelates combine chelates with added magnesium oxide into a homogenized form.

What’s the difference?

All three forms are excellent options, providing enhanced absorption and gastrointestinal gentleness compared to other forms of magnesium. But there are a few differences. The primary difference is how gentle they are (which is why ours are labelled Gentle, Extra Gentle and Ultra Gentle) and how much elemental magnesium they deliver.

For example, our Magnesium Bis-Glycinate 80 Ultra Gentle is a fully reacted chelate. It allows for better absorption and greater protection from interfering substances like prescription medications. Improved absorption means fewer digestive upsets like those found in other magnesium forms. Hence we called it ultra gentle. There is a trade off though. With increased glycine and chelation, less elemental magnesium is delivered.

Not everyone needs the level of gentleness found in Ultra Gentle.And many people would be better served with more magnesium! Our Magnesium Bis-Glycinate 200 Gentle uses the blended form, trading glycine and chelation for more elemental magnesium - over twice the amount! Magnesium Bis-Glycinate 140 Extra Gentle uses a buffered chelate form. It’s a good in-between option since it offers more elemental magnesium than the chelate and more gentleness than the blend.


Magnesium is one of those hard working minerals that simply doesn’t get the attention it deserves. It plays a key role in over 800 different chemical reactions in the body and is involved in everything from DNA synthesis, energy production and metabolism, to muscle strength, nerve function, heart rate regulation and bone building. Magnesium is also an active ingredient in alleviating constipation. That’s one busy mineral.
