In an effort to provide the best quality products, we have made a Magnesium CitraMate formula change. Whereas it previously contained 150 mg of elemental magnesium per capsule, it now contains 135 mg per capsule. The citrate and malate that the magnesium is bound to for enhanced absorption over other forms of magnesium take up a lot of room in the capsule. Since we do not use magnesium stearate, it was difficult to squeeze 150 mg of this well-absorbed form of magnesium into our largest capsules. The attempts to do so often resulted in the capsules not locking properly and loose powder appearing in the bottle. This slight decrease should alleviate this problem.
our best absorbed form of magnesium*
Magnesium CitraMate provides magnesium bound to citrate-malate for superior absorption.* Both magnesium and malic acid have been found to provide support to individuals with muscle tenderness and fatigue.* A study of 24 individuals found malic acid along with 300 mg magnesium taken two times daily provided significant support in measurements of tenderness and discomfort.*
Magnesium is present in all cells of the body and is involved in over 300 enzymatic processes, including energy production.* Magnesium is essential for maintaining normal bone density, normal cardiac rhythmicity, normal pulmonary function, and normal blood glucose regulation.* Other body functions requiring magnesium include nerve conduction, methyl-group transfer, conversion of pyridoxine to pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6), production of energy, and muscle contraction.* Magnesium supplementation appears to be a significant support to maintaining already normal bone density.*
