As crucial to your health as it is notoriously difficult to absorb, Magnesium is vital to your everyday life. What Magnesium Malate offers you is not only a higher level of bioavailability from this essential trace mineral but also the added nutritive boost of Malic acid to help your bones, heart and brain keep strong and active.
When asked which mineral is essential to our everyday diets, the answer that is usually given is Calcium. The mineral so often disregarded is Magnesium. Yes, it is a trace mineral (which means we only need it in very small amounts) but it is also essential, which means that we cannot synthesise it in our bodies without a dietary source.
Given the relative abundance of the mineral in not just our diets but also our environments it can seem a trifle unnecessary to have to supplement it. After all, it is prevalent in nuts, seeds, fish, beans, dark leafy vegetables, whole grains, avocados, bananas and even dark chocolate.
For most of us a healthy diet should suffice, certainly. However for some of us that isn't enough, anyone suffering from pre-existing gastrointestinal disorders (especially those taking medication for it), those with kidney disorders or alcoholics are likely to suffer from some kind of magnesium deficiency.
These are all the frightening realities of a magnesium deficiency.
Swanson Magnesium Malate is a combination of the mineral Magnesium and Malic acid. You might know Malic acid better as the face-bendingly sour ingredient that deliberately gives so many sour sweets their tang. It is also the ingredient in apples, which gives them so much of their flavour. What is perhaps less known is that Malic acid is also a naturally occurring substance that helps in the production of energy during aerobic and anaerobic exercise.
Because Magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals in our bodies, it is responsible for more aspects of your health than you could possibly realise.
Required for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body, it is an essential cofactor in an absolute abundance of enzymatic reactions. It works within our cells, the regularities of our systems. It is vital for the health of the heart, the bones and the kidneys.
Swanson Magnesium Malate offers you not just a more bioavailable but a more effective form of this fantastic and unassuming mineral.
