Magnesium Malate is a highly bioavailable form of magnesium. It contains di-magnesium malate, which is magnesium bound to malic acid. Magnesium is one of the most critical minerals in the human body, and is involved in hundreds of enzyme reactions. Malic acid is a compound found naturally in apples and other fruits and vegetables and is included because of its role in the Krebs cycle, the energy-producing system in the body.
Malic acid helps to make energy by playing a role in the complex process of deriving adenosine triphosphate (ATP; the energy currency that runs the body) from food. Research shows that malic acid combined with magnesium may help with the symptoms of fibromyalgia.*
Magnesium is an essential mineral that serves as an enzyme cofactor for over three hundred biochemical
reactions in the body. The need for magnesium throughout the body is reflected in the fact that the adult
human body contains approximately 25 grams of magnesium, divided among the skeleton, muscle tissue,
blood, and other areas.
Magnesium malate is a form of magnesium bound to malic acid, which is a compound found naturally
in fruits and vegetables, and is responsible for the tart flavor of rhubarb and green apples. Magnesium is a
required cofactor for enzymes that harness energy from carbohydrates, while malic acid is an intermediary of
the complex process that generates energy from all fuel sources, including carbohydrates, fats, and ketones.
Therefore, magnesium malate may be especially beneficial for individuals who experience occasional low
energy and fatigue.
Magnesium may also support:
• Cardiovascular function: Owing to its role in muscle contraction and relaxation, and nerve conduction,
magnesium may help support healthy blood pressure levels and cardiovascular function.
• Healthy carbohydrate tolerance: Magnesium is indispensable for converting carbohydrate (glucose) to
energy, and is also required for proper functioning of the insulin receptor. Individuals who experience
occasional issues related to blood glucose levels and carbohydrate tolerance may benefit from
• Bone health: Sixty percent of the magnesium in the human body is found in the skeleton. Magnesium
is an essential element of the physical structure of bone tissue. Supplementing with calcium alone often
does not have the desired effect of strengthening bones; maintenance of healthy bones requires adequate
magnesium, along with protein and other mineral cofactors.
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take two capsules per day with meals, or as directed by your
health care practitioner.
