Magnesium Bisglycinate

Products / Bisglycinates

High absorption, no laxative effect, and a perfect taste profile

What is chelated Magnesium Bisglycinate?

The reaction of amino acids with a mineral, performed at special controlled conditions, will form a unique product: “chelate.”
A chelate is a compound that contains several ligands bonded to a central mineral, in this case, magnesium and glycine as ligands. Glycine suits very well due to its small molecular size and ability to form tight and stable bonds with the metal ion at the center of the chelate. When ligands chelate a mineral, they forma protective shell around it.

Magnesium bisglycinate is a stable, highly absorbable mineral complex with the advantage of being more tolerable from a digestion point of view and more stable in dietary supplements.

Bisglycinate vs other magnesium forms

Most magnesium salts are poorly absorbed; high magnesium dosages used to compensate for low bioavailability may cause laxative effects. Organic salts, like citrates, gluconates, and soluble organic complexes, like bisglycinates, have a higher bioavailability than inorganic salts. For that reason, many formulators choose Magnesium Bisglycinate due to its bioavailability and the many benefits, including not having a laxative effect.

Gadot has developed several solutions to meet the needs of nutraceuticals and functional foods and beverages. We offer fully reacted magnesium bisglycinate and buffered versions. Buffered Magnesium bisglycinate chelate is a composition of fully reacted Magnesium Bisglycinate with added magnesium oxide to improve flowability and decrease caking tendency in dietary supplements.

Magnesium bisglycinate is also known as Magnesium Glycinate, Magnesium DiGlycinate, Magnesium 2-aminoacetate.
