What is Doctor's Best High Absorption Magnesium?
Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral that is required for optimal function of the cardiovascular system, nervous system, skeletal muscle, digestive tract, and uterus. Seventy-five percent of Americans are deficient in magnesium. Inadequate magnesium affects the heart, blood vessels, bones and blood sugar balance. Magnesium deficiency increases with age because of inadequate intake from the diet, poor absorption and certain drugs known to deplete magnesium. How does it work?
Magnesium ions have a positive electrical charge and thus functions as a mineral electrolyte which affects the amount of water in the body, the acidity of blood (pH), muscle function, and other important processes. Magnesium works as a co-factor for over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body including all the reactions involving ATP, important for energy production and muscle contraction and relaxation. The magnesium glycinate/lysinate in High Absorption Magnesium with TRACCS® 100% Chelated is a genuine dipeptide chelate. Compared to other chelates, dipeptides have the ideal chemical attributes for optimum chelation and absorption.
Why should I take High Absorption Magnesium with TRAACS® 100% Chelated?
Doctor's Best uses a patented, organic, chelated delivery form of magnesium that is 100% chelated to optimize bioavailability. Doctor's Best High Absorption Magnesium is not buffered, meaning that is it not mixed with less expensive and less absorbable magnesium oxide
Inadequate magnesium negatively affects not only the heart, blood vessels, and bones, but may also impact blood sugar balance.* Research has shown a link between magnesium and healthy blood pressure. A decrease in bone mineral density is associated with lower blood magnesium levels.*• Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral required for optimal function of the cardiovascular system, nervous system, skeletal muscle, bones, blood pressure and blood sugar balance.*

I read the reviews before buying and saw some saying how awful this tastes and some saying what do you expect?? It tastes like earth cuz its plants. So I believed the people saying you get used to the taste etc. and I was like I can totally deal even if the taste isnt great. But its so bad. It tastes like earth in a bad way and the powder does not go down smoothly even when mixed in water with one of those electric frothers. You can literally feel it going down your throat. I have tried on different days adding lemon juice, orange juice, and even almond milk. Still so bad. I almost throw up while chugging it down. Gonna switch back to the other brand I used before. I dont think I can even stick it out and finish this tub.
My husband has had abdominal pain for several years and nothing helped much even prescribed meds. Thought we'd give these a try and after just a few days he stopped complaining and could actually sleep through the night.
I fluffed up the contents so it was not packed. I carefully measured the scoops and I got 21 days of use. That is about 1/3 less than they advertised. This is not a 30 day supply. I made sure they were not tightly packed and that the scoop was not overfilled. I got 21 scoops max. I read the reviews prior and wanted to give the benefit of the doubt to the company., The reviews were correct. Stop presenting this as having more in the can than it does.
If you have had stomach problems or had your gall bladder removed or Diabetic, this helps greatly with digestion. Been on it for months.
We have been making smoothies every day with this and we feel a difference. We just add one frozen ripe banana and it actually tastes really good.
