Magnesium bisglycinate is an essential mineral needed for more than 300 enzymatic reactions in the body. This mineral is required for the formation of healthy bones and teeth, protein and fatty acid formation, activating B vitamins, supporting muscle activity, nerve transmission, relaxing blood vessels, clotting blood, temperature regulation and ensuring intestinal mobility also called bowel movements.

Magnesium bisglycinate is magnesium bound to the amino acid glycine. This binding makes the magnesium highly absorbable. For example you would have to take 4 times the amount of magnesium citrate to get the equivalent amount of magnesium bisglycinate. The bisglycinate form of magnesium does not require stomach acid for absorption as it passes into the cell via its amino acid transport which means even those with poor digestion or absorption get the benefits. Magnesium bisglycinate is the only magnesium shown to cross the blood brain barrier which makes it an excellent choice for aiding those with depression and/or anxiety, or migraine headaches.

Stress of all types including chemical, emotional, hormonal or physical stress depletes magnesium from the body. Since magnesium relaxes muscles and nerves, more magnesium is needed when you are under stress. When we are under stress our adrenal glands produce cortisol which further increases acidity in the body thereby increasing the need for even more magnesium.

Because magnesium is required in the metabolism of estrogen in the body, low levels of magnesium increases estrogen leading to estrogen dominance. Symptoms of too much estrogen include premenstrual breast and uterine pain, headaches, backaches, premenstrual depression and mood swings. Women on the birth control pill or hormone replacement therapy also become deficient in magnesium as the drugs deplete magnesium. Anyone with an estrogen dominant condition like endometriosis, PMS, fibroids, ovarian cysts, period problems or breast cysts need magnesium bisglycinate. Interestingly, many women crave chocolate during their premenstrual and menstrual period. Chocolate is high in magnesium!

Magnesium deficiency is common due to our consumption of processed foods and the depletion of magnesium from agricultural soils and water.

Magnesium supplementation can help with many conditions from high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat or heart palpitations, to insomnia, anxiety and depression to fibromyalgia, osteoporosis and leg cramps at night or following exercise. Lorna Vanderhaeghe Health Solutions, Inc. always uses magnesium bisglycinate in all its formulas. Look at MAGsmartTM for more information on the uses of magnesium bisglycinate. Always make sure when you are purchasing minerals that the label states whether or not the dosage is in its elemental value. This tells you if you are getting exactly what you are paying for.

Which Magnesium Is Best?
Magnesium oxide and citrates are laxatives causing diarrhea and they are poorly absorbed. Magnesium bisglycinate is much better absorbed and it does not cause diarrhea. Magnesium bisglycinate is four times more effective than citrate forms of magnesium. "

About the vendor
Kerrisdale Pharmacy
Vancouver, BC
Kerrisdale Pharmacy was established in the early 1970's by pharmacist Romeo Goulet and was subsequently sold to pharmacist Odie McNeil.

In November 1981, Michael Holyk made the trip west from his home in Westlock, Alberta (where he owned Holyk Super Drug Mart) and purchased the pharmacy from McNeil.

At this time the pharmacy was located in its original site at 2142 West 41st Avenue in Kerrisdale and measured only 2000 square feet.

Michael’s son Colin graduated from the Faculty of Pharmacy at UBC in 1990 and joined the team at the pharmacy. Seven years later, they undertook the move to their new (and current) location at 5591 West Boulevard. Shortly thereafter, Michael and Colin added a second pharmacy to the family when they purchased Hollyburn Pharmacy in West Vancouver, BC.

After 10 years in the new location they decided to renovate Kerrisdale Pharmacy, so they took over the next door site, expanded the pharmacy, added a medical clinic, and completed a floor to ceiling renovation - staying open the whole time through the construction dust and disruption in order to provide the top notch service that their clients had become accustomed to. A daunting task to say the least!

Shortly after moving the pharmacy in the 1990’s, pharmacist Eugene Mar joined the team and now shares the management duties of the pharmacy as Assistant Pharmacy Manager.

Since this time, Colin and Eugene have helped turn the pharmacy into a neighbourhood icon thanks to their diligent focus on comprehensive health care, a wide scope of services including compounding, and good, honest empathy for each person who walks through their door.
