Magnesium is required for the proper function of the brain, heart, musculoskeletal system, and more. It is also a cofactor in over 300 enzymatic reactions and is involved in energy production, glucose utilization, protein and fatty acid synthesis, and mood stabilization. Unfortunately, magnesium deficiency is very common in America. Magnesium deficiency may cause fatigue, irritability, anxiousness, and stiff muscles, among other possible symptoms.
Ojas Magnesium provides elemental magnesium in the bisglycinate form for enhanced bioavailability and gastrointestinal tolerance.
Magnesium is not easily processed by the stomach and gut, and as much as 50% of supplemental magnesium may go unabsorbed. This is why magnesium at high doses is sometimes recommended as a laxative. The bisglycinate form of magnesium, however, is more bioavailable and tolerable to digest. Ojas Magnesium is in the bisglycinate form.

Great for cramping
Helps with cramping in my feet along with topical magnesium oil. Good product.
I've tried a lot of magnesium supplements. Usually I can take 4+ and not feel a thing. This one, I take 1 or 2 and within an hour I can physically feel my muscles relaxing. Best potency I've found!
