Magnesium is an essential mineral that serves as an enzyme co-factor 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 co-factor 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 co-factors.
Recommended Dose: Take two capsules per day with meals, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
