Every cell of your body has receptor sites, like key holes, that are waiting to be opened by the appropriate key. The keys can be vitamins, minerals, hormones and neurotransmitters. Each cell will have receptor sites for many different things, depending on the organ they make up. For example, your thyroid cells require iodine, magnesium and Vitamin D to function (among other things).
Every single cell of your body requires Magnesium and Vitamin D to function. In the event of a deficiency (which is the common state of nutrition in America) cell dysfunction occurs.
How do we get magnesium in our diets? Through green leafy vegetables (chlorophyll) To ensure that we are getting sufficient levels of magnesium, we supplement with Magnesium Glycinate.
We take our magnesium in the form of Magnesium Glycinate, as it is easiest on the digestive system. The bonus of taking sufficient levels of magnesium into your body is that it induces restful sleep.
