Chela-Mag B6® Forte is a food supplement which contains a highly-absorbable magnesium formula in the form of ALBION® amino acid chelate (magnesium bisglycinate) enriched with vitamin B6, which cooperates with magnesium in metabolic processes.
Magnesium amino acid chelate by Albion® is fully hypoallergenic (US patent no. 7,838,042), which is crucial for the supplement’s safety.
Scientific research has confirmed that magnesium amino acid chelate by Albion® has an advantage over non-organic sources of the element.
Magnesium assimilability from bisglycinate is several times higher than from non-organic compounds such as oxide, sulphate and carbonate.
- Essential for nerve impulse conduction.
- Participates in the metabolism of sugars, synthesis of proteins and nucleic acids.
- Prevents painful muscle contractions.
- Increases secretion of bile - prevents the formation of stones in the gallbladder.
- Essential for the proper operation of the immune system.
- Reduces the risk of tooth decay.
- Participates in the proper bone mineralization.
- Reduction of tiredness/fatigue, normal energy-yielding metabolism and electrolyte balance*.
Why is magnesium so important for our body?
Magnesium ranked among the group of macrominerals, the components necessary in everyday life in significant amounts, is often called the element of life and energy. Numerous scientific studies have confirmed that it is one of the four most important cations for the proper functioning of our bodies. Magnesium is an elemental mineral essential for maintaining homeostasis, that is the biochemical balance of our bodies. The element takes part in over 300 enzymatic reactions taking place in our cells every day. One of its most important functions is participation in the synthesis of cellular fuel; without the presence of an appropriate amount of magnesium the production of energy indispensable in the everyday functioning of the body occurs ineffectively. That is why we always feel tired, when we lack magnesium. Furthermore, this mineral participates in the active transport of various components across cell membranes; among other things, it contributes to maintaining the proper balance between sodium and calcium. Magnesium is an element essential for the everyday working of our muscles and the effective functioning of the nervous system. The mineral also supports the proper functioning of the heart and the whole circulatory system.
How may magnesium deficiency be manifested?
Deficiency of this element is a very common problem which affects practically half of the population. With the development of civilization and progressive pollution of the environment, with too intensive a way of life magnesium deficiency gradually appears and deepens with time. Furthermore, there are many factors which may intensify the loss of this element from the body. These are mostly stress, omnipresent in our professional and private life, alcohol misuse, smoking, and drinking large amounts of coffee. Unfortunately, our diet is often too poor in magnesium and does not provide the proper amount of this valuable mineral.
Who is magnesium recommended for?
People especially exposed to magnesium deficiency in the body are people who:
- Lead an intensive life
- Are exposed to excessive stress
- Are physically active
- Drink coffee and moderate to large amounts of alcohol
Such diseases of the elderly as: circulatory insufficiency, hypertension or diabetes increase the requirement of this element. The supplementation should be taken into consideration by people using unbalanced relatively poor caloric diet.
Why Chela-Mag B6 is better than regular magnesium?
The supplement of high quality magnesium supplementing deficiencies, awarded the Golden Medal ALBION, Award of Pharmacy Professors 2009 and Golden Quality International Emblem 2009. The exceptional and innovative product containing magnesium amino acid chelate ALBION of high bioaccessibility and effectiveness confirmed in clinical studies. Non-organic forms of magnesium are absorbed poorly; additionally they bind water in intestines and may lead to diarrhoea. After swallowing magnesium salts break up into charged ions which strive for the fastest neutralisation; only their negligible part is bound on the way of the little effective natural chelation therapy and is absorbed in the intestine. Magnesium amino acid chelate ALBION does not break up into ions and is absorbed not until it reaches the small intestine, the whole particle of magnesium amino acid chelate is transported to the cells needing magnesium and its eventual excess is removed without any harm to the body.
Study 1: Comparison of the assimilation of magnesium from amino acid chelate ALBION® and magnesium oxide (the initial level of magnesium in blood serum was identical in all participants of the study). The study analysed the quantity of magnesium in blood serum after oral supplementation. The total magnesium level 8h after administration was 206% higher in the case of amino acid chelate Albion® compared to magnesium oxide!

Study 2: Comparison of assimilation of magnesium from amino acid chelate ALBION® and magnesium chloride (the initial magnesium level in blood serum was identical in all participants of the study). The study analysed the magnesium quantity in blood serum after the oral supplementation. The total level of magnesium 8h after administration was 228% higher for amino acid chelate Albion® compared to magnesium chloride!
