Buffered Magnesium Glycinate® - Hypoallergenic
Kirkman® offers Buffered Magnesium Glycinate® capsules in a hypoallergenic formulation for individuals with special requirements and sensitivities. Magnesium glycinate is a form of magnesium that is easier to digest and absorb than some other forms of magnesium. This product is also part of our Bio-Max Series that uses forms of nutrients that have clinically proven to be among the best absorbed and most highly bioavailable. Our capsules are buffered, which means that they are resistant to pH changes when in solution, making them less reactive and less likely to irritate the digestive tract. Increased absorption capacity may also result. Kirkman® uses magnesium glycinate exclusively from Albion® Labs, Inc. of Clearfied, Utah, a leader in the manufacture of mineral chelates. The product, also known as Albion® Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate, has been evaluated as superior to other forms of mineral salts in both animal and human bioavailabilty studies. Results of these studies are available from Kirkman® upon request. The use and effectiveness of magnesium supplementation is well-documented.
