Magnesium is probably the most popular of all of the minerals at present, especially as consumers are becoming increasingly aware of its research-proven benefits in preventing or managing stress symptoms, tension, insomnia, muscle spasms, fatigue, premenstrual syndrome and high blood pressure and other cardiovascular disorders. Ironically, many people have a less than adequate intake of this important mineral. Magnesium is also increasingly popular with athletes, as it may assist in muscle recovery and even energy during training.
Terranova Magnesium 100 mg Complex is a highly bioavailable blend of superior absorption magnesium which is synergistically enhanced with Pyridoxal 5-phosphate (which facilitates magnesium function), stabilized rice bran, green oat seed, nettle leaf and pumpkin seed.
Magnesium bisglycinate chelate* [TRAACS™] provides 100 mg of elemental magnesium (buffered with magnesium oxide), which allows for easy absorption. Buffered magnesium increases the pH (alkalinity) of the formula, making it more gentle on the gastrointestinal tract.
*TRAACS™ stands for The Real Amino Acid Chelate System and is Albion™ Human Nutrition’s branded trade name for a range of its exclusive patented products.
The TRAACS™ name is born out of many years of extensive research and is reflective of the unique technology which ensures that minerals are easily digested and well absorbed, stable, and well tolerated. The amino acid glycine (which is an essential nutrient) is bound to the mineral to achieve a highly bioavailable form, even in low acid environments commonly found in a compromised gastrointestinal system. Furthermore, its solubility and stability are proven within high-acid environment of the stomach. Glycine forms a highly stable bond with the mineral within the GI tract and is easily recognised and absorbed by the body.
Greater biological activity
Greater tolerance (no gastrointestinal disturbance)
Compounds that do not interact with other foods that prevent mineral absorption (fibre, phytates)
Hypoallergenic, gluten-free, and vegan ingredients
MAGNIFOOD COMPLEX features synergistic botanical and wholefood ingredients. The featured botanicals provide naturally occurring forms of magnesium, catalysts for zinc absorption and metabolism.
STABILIZED RICE BRAN is a nutritionally diverse superfood with an outstanding nutritional profile. It acts as a synergist due to its high concentration of metabolic catalysts that operate in complex metabolic processes. Stabilised rice bran is itself a rich source of magnesium and it also contributes to the reduction of the urinary excretion of calcium. SRB is also an excellent source of B vitamins and their metabolic cofactors that are involved in the metabolism of magnesium.
GREEN OAT SEED is a rich source of B vitamins and minerals, provides a potent soothing and gentle tonic for supporting healthy nerves. As such, green oat seed may provide an ideal synergist to complement the nerve calming properties of magnesium.
NETTLE LEAF is rich in both magnesium and calcium, and provides several nutrients known to enhance their bioavailability (and overall skeletal health) such as boron, vitamins K and D, silicon, zinc and vitamin C.
PUMPKIN SEED is one of the richest natural sources of zinc which, like magnesium, can be rapidly depleted during mental stress. They are also a source of magnesium and essential fatty acids.
