What does the magnesium in Re-Lyte Immunity do?

Magnesium is an essential electrolyte that supports muscle, nerve, cell, and immune health.

Re-Lyte Immunity is made with our Re-Lyte Electrolyte Mix, which includes the essential electrolyte magnesium. Magnesium performs some pretty important jobs for your body. It helps provide energy to your cells, supports the contraction and relaxation of muscles, promotes proper neurological functioning, and even plays a role in your immune function.

Magnesium impacts the immune system in a few different ways. It influences the body’s inflammation response and the function of immune cells. It also has an effect on the performance of immune system-related organs, like the thymus.

Magnesium is one of several electrolytes you lose in your sweat, so it’s important to replenish it regularly if you’re active. If you don’t and your levels get low, you could experience symptoms like fatigue, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, high blood pressure, heart arrhythmia, anxiety, and depression.

Some of the magnesium in Re-Lyte Immunity occurs naturally in our unrefined, ancient sea salt Real Salt. But we also add a 50/50 blend of magnesium malate and magnesium glycinate. There are a few important benefits to these forms of magnesium over other forms of magnesium.

  • Magnesium glycinate contains an amino acid (a building block for protein) called glycine that supports brain health, eases stress, and reduces anxiety. 
  • Magnesium malate helps keep blood sugar in balance. Plus, it contains malic acid, an amino acid that promotes muscle strength and recovery to help you power through those tough workouts. 

Both of these types of magnesium are lighter on your stomach and more easily absorbed by your body.
