The cycle science of Magnesium: Boosts progesterone by improving the health of corpus luteum, reduces inflammation, improves function of insulin, leptin, and thyroid hormones, essential in the manufacturing of estrogen and progesterone.
Magnesium calms the nervous system, regulates cortisol, and aids with sleep. Taking magnesium daily prevents the formation of inflammatory prostaglandins which cause cramping. Interestingly, our bodies dump magnesium when we are stressed. However, we need a lot because over 300 biochemical reactions in our body require magnesium! We use 197mg of Elemental Magnesium = 1397 of Magnesium Bisglycinate. Unlike other forms of magnesium, (ex: sulfate or oxide) magnesium bisglycinate is a special mineral form called a chelate, which means it is bound to an amino acid, making it the most bioavailable, organic form available. It remains nutritionally functional because it stays intact throughout the gastro-intestinal tract without any side effects like diarrhea, and is easily absorbed into the body.*
