Superior Sucrosomial Magnesium®
Again Methyl-Life has searched the globe to find the highest quality ingredients available for its innovative products. We’ve discovered a new, highly bioavailable version of magnesium showing greater absorption rates overall. It’s called Sucrosomial Magnesium® and is manufactured in Italy. The manufacturer, Alesco, is using a unique technology to encapsulate the mineral with a liposomal-like structure made of phospholipids and sucrose esters from fatty acid; they call it Sucrosome®. The Sucrosome® is similar in structure and properties to cell membranes, which allows for ease of transport into biological membranes. This means the mineral can bypass the gut’s acids unharmed and be easily digested in the intestine which in turn gives it a clear path for absorption via transcellular and paracellular pathways.
So what does all that really mean, you ask? You get more magnesium transported into your cells where your body can actually best use it. In a rat study, when Sucrosomial Magnesium® was compared to a highly bioavailable version of Magnesium Citrate, it showed a 20% higher absorption rate and that higher blood serum levels of magnesium held over time. The urine excretion rate of magnesium was much higher and faster with the magnesium citrate, leading us to believe that Sucrosomial Magnesium® is better utilized by the body.
Magnesium plays an essential role in a large number of cellular and metabolic processes (biosynthesis of lipids, proteins and nucleic acids to name a few) – and it is involved in over 300 enzymatic processes. Magnesium is important for the function of nerves and muscles, allowing the transmission of nerve impulses and it is essential for mineralization and skeletal development. Our bones make up 60% of an adult body’s magnesium. Magnesium also helps with the reduction of fatigue, PMS and Menopause symptoms, it can enhance sports performance, and also act as an anti-anxiolytic and anti-stress agent.
Magnesium is a very important methylation supporter and we’ve finally found a version we’re very proud to make available to our MTHFR customers. We’re excited to bring you more cellular vitality with our Sucrosomial Magnesium®!
