Kirkman's Magnesium Glycinate Bio-max Series, created by Albion Labs, contains ingredients which have been clinically proven to
be among the best absorbed and most highly bioavailable. Magnesium Glycinate, a trade mark of Albion, is a pure, non-buffered elemental
magnesium chelated with the amino acid glycine. This means the magnesium has been chemically bound to a glycine molecule. Glycine is readily
recognized and absorbed through intestinal wall, and Albion's glycinate chelates are actually small enough to transport right into
the bloodstream and into the cells themselves.
This is a very gentle form of magnesium which has little or no laxative effect that can be dosed higher if needed. Cheaper forms of
magnesium can irritate the gut, can be acidic, and can cause loose bowels in addition to being very poorly assimilated.
Magnesium is involved with over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart
rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, keeps bones strong, and SO much more.
Diets high in refined flours, meat, and milk products can cause magnesium deficiency because of their low levels in magnesium. If the diet
is too rich in high calcium foods, milk and cheese products, there can also be a magnesium deficiency. High calcium levels that are
not balanced by magnesium may be a factor in the formation of kidney stones. Up to 40% of the American population is deficient in magnesium.
Most forms of magnesium irritate the gut (laxative effect), are acidic, and/or are absorbed poorly.
What Makes Albion Chelated Magnesium Glycinate So Superior?
Albion is the leading supplier of chelated minerals. At Albion, science and patented technology have been combined to
create an organic molecule in a form the body can readily assimilate. These special organic forms of inorganic mineral elements are
mineral amino acid chelates.
For more than 50 years Albion has been in the business of making very specific mineral amino acid chelates backed by sound science and research.
Years of extensive research, clinical analysis, third-party critiques, and careful
laboratory manufacturing enable Albion to produce a fully reacted and highly effective chelate. In fact, Albion is the only chelate
manufacturer that can scientifically prove its molecular structure! By identifying a unique "fingerprint" for each molecule they develop,
Albion minerals are what we say they are: true mineral amino acid chelates.
Albion is a privately owned company that has been granted more than 100 patents in the field of mineral nutrition. Albion's team of
distinguished scientists includes published researchers who have addressed scientific congresses throughout the world.

Magnesium supplements usually have their beginning as minerals that have been influenced by our environment. For that reason, the purity of
magnesium raw materials is important. Magnesium, like calcium, can have undesirable impurities present. Kirkman’s magnesium is Ultra Tested®,
which means it is tested for more than 950 environmental contaminants, the highest standard of purity testing in the world.
