Japanese manufacturers of vitamins and mineral supplements have the advantage to truly focus on health and wellness in all its nuances as Japanese culture is all about living healthier for longer. Scrutinize the meaning of life when you open your eyes in the morning. Immerse yourself in the green of the woods. Getting up from the table before being full. These are Japanese responses to contemporary darkness, glimpses of a thousand-year-old philosophy that even mainstream medicine now faces. A philosophy that teaches you to age gracefully, which encourages you to slow down, which invites you to tune into the beauty of nature.
Magnesium chelate means to combine. When a mineral binds with certain molecules, it is easier to get absorbed into our body. Our digestive system quickly absorbs proteins or amino acids. It is the reason that most chelated supplements use amino acids as carriers for these minerals (such as magnesium). They improve a mineral’s bioavailability.
Bioavailability is the percentage of minerals that is absorbed in the intestines and transported to the bloodstream. The protein binders improve the minerals’ bioavailability by preventing the mineral from getting trapped by other components during digestion. Therefore, combining magnesium with an amino acid enhances the mineral’s absorption by our cells, resulting in its effectiveness.
