So, what is magnesium glutamate?

Magnesium glutamate is a food ingredient that combines magnesium and glutamic acid, an amino acid that is naturally present in many foods. Magnesium plays an important role in maintaining healthy bones, muscles, and nerves. Glutamate is known for enhancing the taste of foods by activating the umami flavor receptors on the tongue. Magnesium glutamate can be found in some processed foods as a flavor enhancer or nutritional supplement. It is also available in supplement form, which may provide benefits for individuals with magnesium deficiency or those looking to enhance their athletic performance.
