Magnesium Malate benefits

What is Magnesium Malate?

Magnesium Malate is a composition and reaction of Magnesium Oxide and Malic Acid. Magneisum is an essential macro-mineral for humans, whereas malic acid is an organic molecule commonly found in fruits and is important for energy production and helping to reduce pain. When Magnesium and Malic Acid are chelated, or bonded with one another, the health benefits include helping to prevent headaches, promoting bowel movement, helping to treat depression, supporting exercise performance, promoting muscle recovery, helping to reduce chronic pain, and supporting energy production.

Approximately 50% of Americans are Magnesium deficient due to people living busier lives and eating more processed foods. As the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body, Magnesium is responsible for over 300 functions. Individuals who do not consume enough Magnesium are more at risk for cardiovascular disease, skeletal deformities, muscle spams and fatigue, inefficient Vitamin D metabolism, and much more.

The recommend Magnesium allowance for females is 320 mg per day and 420 mg per day for males. While foods such as spinach, broccoli, kale, and nuts are rich in Magnesium, most adults do not get the recommended daily allowance of Magnesium from diet alone. Thus, it is essential to take supplements, especially those that contain highly absorbable chelated Magnesium, for maximum bodily functions and health benefits.

What Makes Magnesium Malate Different From Magnesium Oxide?

Although Magnesium Oxide contains a high elemental amount of Magnesium, it is an inorganic mineral that does not contain carbon molecules, is difficult to absorb, and dissociates more readily in the body, leaving the mineral exposed and in a less stable state. When the mineral is exposed, it is more likely to bind with other molecules, forming new compounds and preventing the mineral from getting properly absorbed. Additionally, Magnesium Oxide can irritate the gut lining and cause digestive problems in some individuals.

Magnesium Malate, on the other hand, is a fully reacted mineral which has high bioavailability, absorption, and retention, is more stable, and is safe for the gut. Novotech Nutraceuticals manufactures high quality NovoMin® Magnesium Malate that is created through chelation, a phenomenon related to a specific form of chemical bonding between an inorganic molecule, such as Magnesium, and an organic molecule, such as Malic Acid, that can make more than one chemical bond. Since the body readily absorbs organic molecules, chelating magnesium with malic acid facilitates absorption across the intestinal wall.
