115 mg of Elemental Magnesium
Magnesium is a mineral that is critical for energy production and metabolism, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission and bone mineralization. It is a required cofactor for an estimated 300 enzymes. Among the reactions catalyzed by these enzymes are fatty acid synthesis, protein synthesis, and glucose metabolism. Malate is an important Krebs cycle intermediate, indicating that it is an important molecule in the production of cellular energy derived from carbohydrates.

The Importance of Magnesium
Magnesium is a key mineral that many Americans do not get enough of through the diet. Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. Approximately 50 percent of total body magnesium is found in bone. The other half is found predominantly inside cells of body tissues and organs, with only 1 percent found in the blood. Magnesium is important for producing energy, and maintaining healthy nerve and muscle function.
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong.
Dietary magnesium is absorbed in the small intestines; excretion takes place through the kidneys.
Even though dietary surveys suggest many Americans do not get recommended amounts of magnesium, overt symptoms of magnesium deficiency are rarely seen in the United States. However, many people may not have enough body stores of magnesium because dietary intake may not be high enough. Having adequate body stores may be protective against suboptimal cardiovascular function and suboptimal immune function.
Signs of magnesium deficiency include hypomagnesemia and eventually hypocalcemia, despite adequate dietary calcium. As magnesium depletion progresses, parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion diminishes. Along with hypomagnesemia, signs of severe magnesium deficiency include hypocalcemia, low serum hypokalemia, retention of sodium, low circulating levels of PTH, neurological and muscular symptoms (tremor, muscle spasms, tetany), loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and personality changes. The following conditions increase the risk of magnesium deficiency:
Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, such as prolonged diarrhea, Crohn’s disease, malabsorption syndromes, etc.
Diabetes mellitus and long-term use of certain diuretics.
Aging: several studies have found elderly people have relatively low dietary intakes of magnesium.
