Magnesium Malate


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.

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 supplemental magnesium.
  • 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.
