|What Is It?
Magnesium in aspartate, citrate, citrate/malate, and
glycinate forms are highly bioavailable magnesium
chelates, supporting the metabolism and utilization
of many essential nutrients. Additionally, magnesium
plays an important role in the proper functioning of
numerous enzymatic and physiological functions,
including neuromuscular contractions, cardiac function,
and regulation of the acid-alkaline balance in the body.*
Uses For Magnesium
Nutrient Utilization: Magnesium is essential in the
metabolism of macronutrients, energy production and
the utilization of calcium, phosphorus, sodium, and
potassium. This vital mineral also helps utilize B-complex
vitamins, vitamin C, and vitamin E.*
Bone Health: Magnesium is an essential bone matrix
mineral that promotes healthy bone metabolism. A trial
involving 2,038 older individuals indicated that higher
intakes of magnesium were positively associated with
bone mineralization for certain individuals.*
Cardiovascular Support: Magnesium provides broadspectrum
cardiovascular support, including arterial
function, endothelial function, c-reactive protein
metabolism and lipid metabolism. A meta-analysis
of 20 randomized trials suggests that it also promotes
healthy systolic and diastolic function. In addition,
magnesium promotes healthy glucose metabolism.
In one 15-year study involving 4,637 young adults,
higher intakes of magnesium were associated
with healthy cardiovascular function and glucose
utilization. Magnesium also plays important roles in
muscle function, mood and calming, and cranial vessel
What Is The Source?
Magnesium is naturally derived from limestone. Citrate
is produced by corn dextrose fermentation. Aspartate,
glyincate and malate are synthetic. Ascorbyl palmitate
is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil.
