Magnesium, the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body, plays a role in over 300 metabolic processes. It participates in the development and maintenance of bones and teeth; the metabolism of carbohydrates, blood glucose, fats, and proteins; the formation of cells and tissues; and the maintenance of muscle function, including cardiac muscle. Magnesium also helps to lower blood pressure and allows more oxygen to be delivered to the brain and heart.

Deficiency is common and results from poor dietary intake, poor absorption, and excessive losses through urine, stool, perspiration, or lactation. Certain drugs, certain herbs, poor kidney function, excessive alcohol intake, and drinking mostly “soft” water can contribute to magnesium depletion as well [1]. Magnesium’s role in modulating the inflammation marker c-reactive protein (CRP) and supporting the body’s normal response to inflammation may be significant. In addition, although underlying mechanisms remain unclear, it appears that men who consume diets rich in magnesium are able to maintain healthy gallbladder function [2]. Adequate magnesium intake indeed has strong, far-reaching health benefits [3].

This formula contains Albion®’s TRAACS® magnesium lysinate glycinate and Albion’s chelated di-magnesium malate—both formulated for enhanced absorption. Magnesium Lysinate Glycinate Chelate, a mineral amino acid chelate in which magnesium is bound to two amino acids, creates a complex that is more readily absorbed across the intestinal wall. Malic acid (from di-magnesium malate) supports energy production and lactic acid clearance via the Krebs cycle. Malic acid may also support antioxidant systems by enhancing glutathione and antioxidant enzymes. Malic acid also appears to exert a protective effect by binding aluminum [4].

I just wanted to say that this product has changed my life, no over-dramatization here! I have had a left side cervical spinal/left shoulder pain issue for years now. Putting it simply, I had issues with pain in my lower left neck which was causing painful muscle knots in my left shoulder/neck. Nothing took this discomfort away. Not massage, not acupuncture, not muscle relaxers, physical therapy...nothing! Once I started taking this magnesium product, I have seen a HUGE difference in my discomfort, muscle stiffness. It's incredible! The discomfort isn't anywhere NEAR it used to be! Thanks so much, Healthmasters! I can't thank you enough!

Severely damaged right deltoid. 6 months in continual pain, careful, no slight improvement. Prayed. Tried magnesium malate, within 2 months completely healed, full arm movement again. Praise Jesus!
