Magnesium Malate Forte x 120 Tablets
- Vegetarian product
Magnesium Malate Forte combines malic acid, magnesium and vitamin B2 (riboflavin), which are nutrients that are involved in the Krebs cycle and important for energy generation.
Magnesium (Mg) is one of seven macrominerals considered essential for human health; the others are sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, chlorine and sulphur. The adult human body contains 20-28 grams of magnesium. Of this total amount, about 40% is found in the muscle and soft tissues, about 1% in the extracellular fluid, and the remainder in the skeleton.
More than 300 enzymes are known to be activated by magnesium, and as a consequence numerous biochemical pathways require magnesium.
Athletes and labourers may be low in magnesium, because perspiring and the use of large muscles tend to deplete it. Lactating women require higher magnesium intake, as do adolescents.
In a healthy person, half of the ingested magnesium is typically absorbed. But many lifestyle, environmental, and dietary factors can lower the availability of magnesium, including missed meals, the use of diuretics, fast and high-fat foods, alcohol, and soft drinks, which are high in phosphates that leach magnesium from the body.
Additionally, acid rain washes magnesium from the soil, fluoridation depletes it from drinking water, and the processing of grains and other foods lowers their magnesium content.
