New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Which Kind of Magnesium Do You Need? The 9 Types!?
so a lot of people think that all magnesium’s are created equal you go to the grocery store you go to the pharmacy you pick up a magnesium and the problem is solved okay maybe you’re on some kind of new diet protocol and you need to add magnesium into your diet or your doctor says you need magnesium so you go and you pick up basic magnesium and you’re wondering if it’s really doing the trick and you know over time you realize it’s not really doing much well you might not be getting the magnesium that you need for your specific need of your body right you’re not getting the right one so what I want to break down are the nine most common forms of magnesium they’re technically are a few more but they’re really fairly insignificant in the grand scheme of things so we’re talking about the nine forms of magnesium here I’m gonna break them down give you what you would use each particular one for and how we work and how they’re derived and how they’re combined and chelated etc etc so we make it very simple the first one is going to be magnesium chloride okay magnesium chloride if you look on the back of a label you look on the back of any magnesium product and you see magnesium chloride it’s important that you know what it’s for so magnesium chloride is interesting because it has a stability constant that’s close to zero right now the beginning of this video that sounds Greek right what the heck is a stability constant it basically means that it converts more easily into an ionic form so magnesium chloride has a stability constant close to zero which means that it just dissolves and dissipates into water into your body relatively easy so that sounds like a good thing but not always the case okay it has a pretty specific need when it comes down to why you would use magnesium chloride we’re usually talking about hydrochloric acid issues gastric acid issues within your stomach so it’s not like you want to go take a magnesium chloride because you’re low on energy or because you have muscle cramps okay it can help you a little bit to that degree but you’re not going to get the most effect so the benefits of mag chloride actually come from the extra chloride sure the magnesium plays our role too but the chloride is really what does the thing so it helps the issues of a steady decline of hydrochloric acid as we age so we have it like the steady decline of hydrochloric acid which causes acid reflux and causes all kinds of issues believe it or not because we’re not producing as much so it ends up messing up the whole process we end up having too much in one area because we’re not producing enough yada-yada so it helps boost the production of those gastric acids so that’s where magnesium chloride really comes into play so you don’t want to be buying magnesium chloride if you’re having like say muscle cramps it’s not the best thing right okay so now let’s go ahead and move into number two which is magnesium oxide this is probably the most common one that you’re going to see when you go to the grocery store it’s like the most common basic one but is it what you really want well let’s break it down so usually magnesium oxide becomes magnesium oxide being combined with oxygen in kind of its natural form so an example it’s mostly exposed to oxygen and sea beds so they’ll take salt and sodium and all this stuff that also has all these other minerals okay we’ve got of course are magnesium everything like that that’s sitting in a sea bed and it’s being exposed to oxygen of course we have a wide variety of oxidation because it all depends on where in the world it is where the sea bed is how long it was sitting up so we don’t have a real solid idea of how much oxygen it’s actually been coupled with right what the oxidation level is it is the most common form because it’s the cheapest and the easiest it doesn’t require a whole lot of processing the problem is it’s less than a four percent absorption rate okay so it’s non chelated which means it’s not bound to an amino acid that would allow it to get into the system so you really want to have magnesium be chelated with some kind of amino acid like mat glycinate or mag three and eight or magnet or eight okay so we’ll talk about all those in a minute you want a chelated form for the most part for absorption so you’re getting a very little bit of absorption so if you go to your local pharmacy and you pick up an inexpensive magnesium this is more likely what you’re going to get now magnesium citrate this might be one that your doctor has had you take before you get a colonoscopy right have you ever seen this okay so magnesium citrate is magnesium plus citric acid the way that magnesium citrate works is pretty interesting it’s the magnesium and citric acid they have opposite charged ions or atoms so in this case what’s happening is this is creating a gradient where water called passive diffusion can come in to the intestinal tract so it draws water in so this is why it is so good and you need to clear out your intestinal tract like if you’re constipated this is going to help however it stimulates those you know those muscle cells to be a little bit more relaxed so the smooth muscle cells within your your intestinal tract small intestine and large intestine a little bit goes a long way with this stuff okay if you have too much magnesium citrate you end up with well you can do the math okay so it’s very easy to overdo it you’re not getting magnesium absorbed into your body really it’s staying localized within the intestinal tract it’s a still in non chelated form in the sense that it’s just drawing water in it’s bound to an acid so it’s trying to create a gradient so you draw water and only use that if you really need it magnesium glycinate this is one of my favorite once magnesium glycinate is what you want to use if maybe you’re a little bit jittery or maybe you having a hard time falling asleep or maybe you’re just a little bit more wound up maybe you’re someone that’s just suffering from about of stress at this point in time so it has a very powerful calming effect which is why it’s perfect for sleep so this is what I would usually use if I’m having a hard time falling asleep I don’t use it every night I use it if I feel a little bit wound up maybe my day was just a little bit more chaotic maybe I just had lots of things flowing my brain I just wanted to kind of relax a little bit so it’s bound with glycine which already has powerful sleep promoting properties anyway it’s not to say you can’t take this any other time I just think before bed makes a lot of sense now it is chelated okay so it absorbs a lot faster and a lot better because it’s bound to that amino acid so it doesn’t just stay in your digestive system it gets into the bloodstream and does its job it’s also resilient to stomach acids so it makes it so that you don’t have this breakdown where it denatures the magnesium and makes it so you’re just not absorbing it so it’s resilient to the stomach acid and then because it’s chelated it gets absorbed better and it’s really the powerful effects of the glycine that really do the job too so we have magnesium that of course is relaxing you but then glycine has an effect on cooling your body so glycine makes it so that blood flow actually changes a little bit dissipates in different ways so you actually cool down and you are shown to fall asleep much better if your body’s in a cooler state so glycine hopes the body stay cool if you wake up in the middle of the night because you’re hot and you have you know night sweats anything like that that glycine can help and mat glycine it’s gonna be really really powerful there and by the way I know I’m talking about all of these right now and I’m talking about all of these but if you guys want to check out just all of these different magnesium’s and maybe even get an ultimate magnesium bundle that kind of has them all broken down go ahead and check out jigsaw health down below in the description so I’ve been on the advisory board for jigsaw for wow like three three and a half years now and they’re awesome they’ve published a study surrounding the world of magnesium one of the first magnesium companies to actually go out and publish their own study surrounding absorption so I highly encourage you to check them out the reason I mentioned that is because they’re mag glycinate mag now is really and it’s the one that I would usually mix into with a little bit of water drink before I go to bed but anyhow they’ve got a full spectrum a full magnesium bundle that they put together specifically for those that are watching this video so after you learn everything you need to know about magnesium just check them out down in the description their sponsor of this channel they’ve done some awesome things just they’re worse worth checking out so make sure you do okay now we go over to mag malate or mail ate potato potato I’d say more people probably call it malate but mag malate is bound to malic acid okay malic acid is naturally produced by ourselves it’s not like it’s some weird extra thing that they’re combining it with if not chemical or anything like that now the reason that magnet is so great is it specifically good for our energy levels and for our muscles a lot of people will take mag malate or dye magnesium ale-8 or anything like that to help out muscle cramps that’s where it’s really widely known so that’s really powerful for that but the reason that this all works specifically like in the muscle cell and stuff is it helps that helps it transport in and out of the mitochondria so the malate that the magnesium is bound to helps the magnesium transport in and out of the mitochondria which we need that magnesium getting into the mitochondria otherwise we have a big problem because it allows the body to make ATP ATP is our energy without our energy we don’t have life right now ATP requires magnesium to actually create energy it’s called mag ATP right so without magnesium being bound to ATP the energy isn’t actually even useful so the malic acid reverses the inhibition of glycolysis as well so all this basically means is it means when our body is under stress like when we’re working out it makes it so that the mitochondria can still produce energy even in a state of hypoxia with less oxygen so if you’re going up to altitude or you have a hard workout this is really good to take but it’s also really good to take if you just want more energy overall you don’t want to feel stiff and you want to feel like your muscles are actually working and not cramping okay again jigsaw is really widely known for their time magnesium a late a very specific kind of this that again it’s down in that bundle okay then we’ve got magnesium sulfate also known as at some salt all right we’re not going spend a lot of time here because I will be honest we don’t see a whole lot of benefit from it okay people will take Epsom salt baths in the hopes that it relaxes you but the studies are pretty inconclusive we don’t see a whole lot of that we can’t tell if it’s being absorbed through the skin the little effect that does occur or if it’s actually coming in through our respiration when we take a hot bath the fact is we don’t really know but all it is is magnesium sulfur and oxygen and if you drink it you will be sorry it’s not gonna hurt you but it’s definitely gonna flush you out okay then we have magnesium orotate okay so this is an interesting one this is really good if you’re pushing your body to a limit like you’re a high-powered athlete we’re doing a lot of high-intensity work magnates good too but McIlroy Tate will help you out here as well so Mag+ erotic acid it’s a heterocyclic compound so basically what it does is it helps the body produce more ATP okay whereas mag malate helps support the natural ATP production that’s happening mag orotate actually can increase production increase your performance it spares the extra ATP to be used for performance so normally we have some ATP that gets diffused into other processes within the body that kind of make it just a waste in a lot of ways this forces it to be used for performance so it allows the muscles to use it allows us to create energy the way we need it it also turns into beta alanine which beta alanine has a lactic acid or lactate buffering process so beta alanine is in a lot of free workouts it’s in a lot of pre-workout compounds because it buffers the lactic acid it buffers the that burn that you would get right so if we can buffer that and we can work out longer and harder so it’s pretty cool Matt Gore Tate is definitely a performance-based one so a lot of times you’ll see these hand-in-hand okay people will take those together because they they work together now mailee recovery cramping Negril rotate a little extra boost of performance all working along that ATP pathway then we have mag 308 okay this is all about the brain okay I love this one in fact between Matt glycinate and Mack three and eight those are my two favorites okay mag three and eight I take before I film simply because it boosts my mental function it really does and it’s proven okay so basically the three and eight makes it so that magnesium can get into the brain it’s all there is to so magnesium increases synaptic density so basically when you have two neurons that are communicating with each other the synaptic cleft and that synapse between the two needs to be dense for information to be able to pass through think of it it was like the density of like the one laid road versus an eight-lane superhighway right if you have more density between synapse or in that synapse then information you can cross and you get more just information at a faster rate and then the plasticity means that we can move the road imagine being able to drive down the road and see your intersection up ahead or see the road that you need to be on and just magically being able to like create a road that gets you to that other road or it’s like when you can see your destination really far away but the road takes you around a big winding curve what if you could draw a straight line and just make yourself go there that’s plasticity so your brain is always looking for shortcuts and if we can actually give it the ability to create shortcuts with magnesium we’re in a great spot big issue though magnesium doesn’t get into the brain very easily so if it’s bound with three and eight it can get into the brain it allows you to get through that blood-brain barrier okay so again jigsaw has their brain boost which is in that bundle too but you can get mag three and eight in a lot of places you’ve got to make sure you’re getting a good quality one lastly I want to talk about magnesium Tour eight this is essentially magnesium that’s bound with Tory and another cue added one and it calms the central nervous system in a different way so it calms the central nervous system via gamma-aminobutyric acid via gaba okay so this helps you get a nice sense of calm relaxation it helps scavenge reactive oxygen species that are created white by white blood cells so if you have an injury or if you’re sick mag Toure could be really good because it helps scavenge free radicals and if you’re under a lot of stress it’s a good one to take it’s not going to necessarily help calm you down but it’s going to help combat the side effects of being stressed so it’s almost like mag tore eight works really well with some of these other ones simply because it’s going to help you combat the stress whereas some of these other ones are going to help you have the performance so it’s like gets rid of the side effects of stress helps you power through the stress it’s kind of simplest way to put it so anyway now you have the breakdown of nine types of magnesium no more confusion out there do your own homework so you’re not just buying a cheap one that’s literally going to go right through you as always keep it locked in here in my channel and I’ll see you in the next video

Which Kind of Magnesium Do You Need? The 9 Types! – Thomas DeLauer
Magnesium chloride may increase production of gastric acid, thereby enhancing absorption and assimilation of magnesium itself, and improving overall digestive efficiency
is non-chelated, so it doesn’t absorb well compared to other supplements – chelated minerals have been chemically combined with amino acids so that the body can use them better
Has been shown to have as low as a 4% absorption rate
Magnesium Citrate is a saline laxative made of Magnesium with Citric Acid – commonly used for minor or occasional cases of constipation by pulling water into the intestines
Not recommended for treating long-term issues as it can easily lead to excessive dehydration which can cause electrolyte imbalances and mineral deficiencies
Magnesium glycinate is Magnesium bound with the amino acid glycine, which is a very calming amino acid
Glycine also reduces the production of proinflammatory cytokines and the expression of adhesion molecules in blood vessels, and enhances the activity of macrophages and leukocytes––immune cells that help to clean up injured or infected tissue
Glycine is also a precursor of collagen production
Magnesium Malate is Magnesium bound with malic acid – magnesium Malate is most commonly taken for improving energy levels
Malate is used to transport vital nutrients in and out of the mitochondria, using what is known as the ‘malate shuttle’ – inside the mitochondria, these nutrients in turn are broken down to form ATP
Epsom salt is also known as magnesium sulfate. It’s a chemical compound made up of magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen.
There is no good evidence that magnesium or sulfates are absorbed into your body through the skin
Magnesium Orotate is a combination of magnesium and orotic acid
Orotic Acid (pyrimidinecarboxylic acid) is a heterocyclic compound (cyclic compound whose ring contains at least two different elements) produced in the body via the enzyme, dihydroorotate dehydrogenase
Orotic acid increases ATP production:
First, orotic acid enhances the amount of ribose-5-phosphate, a molecule important for energy production, leading to elevated ATP regeneration
Secondly, orotic acid increases the pool of Uridine Monophosphate (UMP) which spares ATP from being used to create various nucleotides
L-threonate is a vitamin C metabolite
Increasing magnesium concentrations in cultured brain cells from the hippocampus (the area of the brain where memories are stored and retrieved) increases both synaptic density and brain plasticity
Magnesium is a critical player in the activation of nerve channels that are involved in synaptic plasticity.
Magnesium l-threonate was specifically created to cross the brain’s protective filter, the blood-brain barrier
Magnesium Taurate, also known as Magnesium Taurinate, is a composition and reaction of magnesium oxide and taurine.
