Magnesium Malate Powder by Seeking Health provides 500 mg of magnesium (as dimagnesium malate) per serving. Magnesium is an abundant mineral naturally present in the body that acts as a cofactor in hundreds of enzymatic processes and systems. It helps to regulate biochemical reactions in the body, including protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, and healthy blood pressure. It may help support healthy muscle relaxation by inhibiting calcium influx and smooth muscle contraction. Magnesium is important for energy production, oxidative phosphorylation, and glycolysis. It may contribute to the development and maintenance of healthy bone structure and is needed for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and the antioxidant glutathione.*
Malic acid is found naturally in fruit and is also commonly added to food products to produce a sour or tart flavor. It is also an important intermediate in the citric acid cycle, an important biochemical series of reactions for energy generation. The combination of magnesium and malic acid may be particularly helpful for healthy energy production in the cells.*
