Muscle Mag™ is a special formulation of magnesium bound to malic acid, with important co-factors. Malic acid is the most important Krebs Cycle nutrient that prevents muscle fatigue. This helps cells sustain aerobic energy production longer with less lactic acid formation.
- Contains magnesium in the most absorbable form – magnesium glycinate. Stay away from cheap oxides, carbonates or harsh amounts of citrate.
- Contains Kreb’s cycle nutrients that help carry magnesium into cells. Four out of five people are deficient in magnesium.
- Reduces muscle fatigue and muscle tightness*
- Nutrients to reduce lactic acid formation in muscles*
- Supports energy production*
- Supports cardiovascular health*
Quality of Magnesium
Quality of magnesium is important. Magnesium oxide is a cheap salt of magnesium and never used in Wellness Resources products. Oxide salts break apart in metabolism and the oxide requires an antioxidant to neutralize it. Why spend precious antioxidants neutralizing a low quality form of magnesium supplement? Companies using oxide minerals are clearly not quality focused, regardless of what they say.
A lack of magnesium poses an interesting catch-22 in terms of how to get magnesium into cells. This is because magnesium is “pumped” across cell membranes and the pump requires magnesium to function in an optimal way. A supplement of magnesium oxide or chloride may increase blood levels of magnesium, but the magnesium may not be able transport across cell membranes due to the lack of magnesium required to run the pump.*
Wellness Resources’ formulations use forms of magnesium that are naturally chelated to nutrients that cells like to absorb by other mechanisms, enabling magnesium to “piggy back” a free ride into the cell where it can assist in energy production and promote the normal function of the magnesium pump.*
For example, Wellness Resources uses magnesium bound to malic acid. Malic acid is drawn into the cell to help make cellular energy (it is an important Krebs cycle nutrient) and it brings the magnesium with it.* Another excellent magnesium supplement is magnesium bisglycinate (magnesium naturally bonded to two molecules of the amino acid glycine). This is viewed by the body as a protein and readily absorbed.* Glycine is used in liver and nerve cells in large amounts, helping to bring magnesium with it into these cells.*
