Magnesium is an essential mineral needed by every cell of your body to help maintain normal cardiovascular, muscle, nerve, bone, and cellular function. Magnesium Malate is a highly absorbable form of magnesium that provides the benefits of this mineral, along with the benefits of malic acid, a nutrient found to contribute to the process of transforming food into ATP, the body's energy source.
Magnesium is essential for overall health, but unfortunately, most adults intake of this mineral may be inadequate.
Magnesium is an essential mineral in over 300 enzymatic reactions in metabolism. These reactions include those involved in the Krebs cycle (one of the body's energy production systems), energy transport and storage, the breakdown of fatty acids, DNA metabolism, and hormone regulation, the activation of B vitamins, proper nerve function and neurotransmitter activity, and the formation and maintenance of protein, fatty acids and bone. Magnesium is vital for cell formation, and helps to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body's energy source.
Malic acid is a natural fruit acid that is present in most cells in the body and is an important component of numerous enzymes key to ATP synthesis and energy production.
Magnesium Malate is one of the few substances that can chelate aluminum from tissues of the body. Because malic acid plays a key role in the production of energy in the mitochondria, it is often recommended with magnesium for fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
