Magnesium malate is a highly bioavailable form of magnesium made by chelating malic acid to magnesium. We have paired our magnesium with taurine, a sulfur containing amino acid that aids magnesium utilisation and is found in large quantities in the heart, brain and retina. Magnesium malate is often used in the morning and day time for energy but this effect can vary from person to person.

✔  120 capsules per jar

✔  Each capsule provides 100mg of magnesium malate and 100mg of taurine

✔  Zero additives, binders or flow agents

✔  Vegetable cellulose capsule

✔  Made with renewable energy in the UK

Ingredients
Magnesium Malate, L-Taurine & Capsule Shell: Vegetable Cellulose - nothing else!

Suitable for vegetarians & vegans.

Magnesium 

Magnesium is much more than just a mineral. The energy currency of the body, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) must be bound to magnesium in order to be active. This means that all bodily processes, such as enzymatic reactions, protein formation and DNA repair are magnesium dependent. Magnesium deficiency can leave us feeling tired and stressed. In fact, magnesium is often referred to as the 'anti-stress mineral'. More specific functions include:

  • Protein synthesis
  • Vitamin D synthesis
  • Muscle and nerve function
  • Blood glucose control, and blood pressure regulation
  • Nerve impulse conduction and muscle contraction
  • Heart rhythm
  • Inflammation control

    Magnesium is particularly important for those who lead stressful lives because magnesium stores are depleted under stress in the body.

    Taurine

    Taurine is an amino sulfonic acid that has a wide variety of roles in the body, including stabilising cell membrane concentrations of calcium and magnesium. It has a calming effect on the body as it faciliates the production of the neurotransmitter GABA. It is found in the highest concentrations within your heart, retinas, and central nervous system and is particularly important for vegetarians and vegans because it is only found in animal sources. More specific functions include:

    • Aiding magnesium utilisation
    • Liver copper metabolism
    • Retinol absorption
    • Supports healthy estrogen detoxification
    • Cholesterol control
    • Maintaining proper hydration and electrolyte balance in your cells
    • Forming bile salts (which play an important role in digestion)
    • Central nervous system neuromodulation
    • Regulating calcium binding and transport
    • Insulin sensitivity
    • Protecting mitochondria from reactive oxygen species 

    FAQ

    'What is the capsule size?'

    The capsule size is 00. Capsules sizes are named by numerical values, numbered: 000, 00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 from biggest to smallest.

    'How do I start taking magnesium and what should I expect?'

    As with any new supplement, always start with 1 capsule first and slowly build up from there or as professionally directed. Everyone responds slightly differently to different forms of magnesium (of which there are many). Some people find magnesium malate mildly energising whereas others find it very relaxing. This may dictate when you choose to take it. It is worth noting that taurine generally has a calming effect on the body due to its neuroinhibitory effect.

    'Does the amount of magnesium refer to the gross weight of product or net magnesium?'

    Different forms of magnesium have different 'weights' of magnesium (elemental) to them. What this means is how much of the compound is actually magnesium and how much is the compound it is chelated to. Magnesium malate contains 15% by weight, of which is very bioavailable. Even though other forms of magnesium such as magnesium oxide have a higher distribution, they have a lower bioavailability. Don't be fooled by other manufacturers displaying much higher dosages of magnesium (like 1500mg), they are showing the gross weight of the product, not the net magnesium. We always show the net magnesium on our products.

    'What happens if I take too much?'

    Magnesium is 'hydrophillic' meaning it attracts water. This means it can pull water into the bowel. High doses may cause more loose bowel movements. If this occurs, lower the dose until you reach bowel tolerance.

    'What is the maximum number of capsules I can take in one go?'

    We recommend taking no more than 2 capsules in one serving, and a maximum of 4 per day or as professionally directed.

    'Does magnesium compete with other minerals?'

    Magnesium is a key electrolye in the body alongside calcium, potassium and sodium. In order to maintain mineral balance, we recommend making sure you are getting adequate dietary intake of the other electrolytes too.

    'Magnesium gives me vivid dreams, why is that?'

    Magnesium can facilitate deeper sleep states such as rapid eye movement (REM) sleep where we tend to dream more. Dreaming is a normal part of healthy sleep.

    'Magnesium malate doesn't help me sleep but gives me energy, is there something else I can try for sleep?'

    You may wish to try magnesium glycinate or transdermal forms of magnesium such a magnesium bath salts or creams.

    'Can I take magnesium on an empty stomach?'

    We recommend taking magnesium after food for optimal absorption and to avoid stomach upset.

    Safety information

    If you are pregnant, nursing, taking any medications or have any medical condition, we always advise you consult your doctor or healthcare professional before use.

    Good Product

    I like this product. I take 2 every morning & a different make in the evening (300mg in one capsule) as found I needed to take 3 or 4 in the evening to stop cramps. I do think it is probably the best magnesium around - sorry it is only 100mg in a capsule as am always trying to reduce the number of supplements I take!
