Why magnesium glycinate is awesome.

All of us could do with a little more magnesium in our lives. Magnesium you say? Yep. Magnesium, the eighth most abundant element in the universe and the seventh most abundant in our planet's crust.

But for such a common mineral, it is actually very important for your body!

800 different uses.

Magnesium is, in fact, crucial for our bodies. It's used by every cell to build proteins, repair DNA, and provide energy. It's estimated to be used in over 800 different biochemical reactions!

That's a lot of uses.

Magnesium has what it takes to...

All right. I get it. But why magnesium glycinate?

Magnesium + Glycinate Character

Good question.

By itself, glycinate is called glycine. That's an amino acid.

Amino acids link together to form proteins. Proteins make up our cells, muscles, and tissues.

Magnesium + Glycinate Character
Gly Character

There are 500 amino acids in nature but your body only uses 21 of them.

Glycine is one of those 21.

Glycine is used to help make a lot of useful things in your body such as...

Gly Character


Used to heal wounds.



An amino acid that helps the brain.



Used in the liver as an antioxidant.



An essential component of red blood cells.

Magnesium glycinate is also very absorbable. Why is that?

Magnesium and glycine share a strong bond. Stronger than other magnesium pairs.

So while other magnesium pairs get broken apart by stomach acid...

...magnesium and glycine happily stay together.


And magnesium glycinate gets better absorbed in your gut.


Your intestinal walls have different channels that move different nutrients into your blood. These channels are like doors for nutrients. Some move minerals. Others move sugars. There are many different kinds of channels.

Amino acids like glycine use dipeptide channels. There are many dipeptide channels.

Because magnesium and glycine stay together, they travel through dipeptide channels together. And because there are many, more magnesium can be absorbed by your body.

Other magnesiums that are not paired with a useful amino acid like glycine are out of luck.

Remember those lonely magnesium ions? The ones not so lucky to be paired with glycine?

It turns out they can upset your digestive system. These magnesium ions draw extra water into your stomach and intestinal tract. That can lead to bloating or diarrhoea. Blegh.

Magnesium glycinate is gentle on the bowels!

  • Magnesium is a really important mineral. Your body uses magnesium in over 800 different ways.
  • Glycine is a useful amino acid too. Our body uses it to make a lot of different things.
  • Magnesium and glycine have a strong bond.
  • This means magnesium glycinate is gentle on your bowels and easy to absorb!

With magnesium glycinate, your body gets more of the magnesium it craves, and it gets you back doing the things you love


We love magnesium glycinate so much that we decided to come up with a fun way to take it.

That's why we created MagPop!


Our team put on their thinking caps and created a fun, fizzy drink with a lot of hard-working magnesium glycinate. It also has vitamin C and electrolytes for a little extra boost!


And because it's supposed to be as healthy as it is tasty, we left out the gross stuff.

  • No artificial colours or flavours
  • No preservatives
  • Not even sugar! (we use xylitol)

It's also ...
