How to read the Supplement label of ingredients:
I bought Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate. The Medicinal Ingredients reads:
Magnesium (Magnesium Bisglycinate) 560mg. Providing Elemental Magnesium 100mg.
Non-Medicinal ingredients: Microcrystalline cellulose, cellulose. Contains no yeast, wheat, soy, gluten, corn, sugar, dairy, artificial colours or preservatives. Manufactured under the unique A.... Laboratories process............. whereby the minerals are chelated (bound to) by amino acids, peptides and polypeptides.
Directions: Adults, take four capsules daily or as directed by health care practitioner.
My questions how to read these labels? does this mean I am only getting 100mg of magnesium as why they advise 4 capsules? What is the Magnesium bisglycinate?
What does it mean?
Thank you if any one can help.
