Source Naturals Magnesium Malate is a compound of magnesium and malic acid. Malic acid is a natural fruit acid that is present in most cells in the body and is an important component of numerous enzymes key to ATP synthesis and energy production. Magnesium is an essential mineral in over 300 enzymatic reactions in metabolism. These reactions include those involved in the Krebs cycle (one of the body's energy production systems), energy storage, the breakdown of fatty acids, protein synthesis, DNA metabolism, neurotransmitter activity, and hormone regulation.Suitable For Vegetarians Gluten Free No Sugar No Artificial Flavors Soy, and Wheat Free Contains Malic Acid which help flush aluminum out of the body Energy How alive you feel, even your mental outlook, is a function of millions of chemical reactions taking place at any given moment. All these reactions require energy so that you can achieve vibrant health. Without key nutrients, your life-supporting energy levels can be shortchanged.The Dangers of AluminumAluminum is a naturally occurring metal. It has been the subject of recent studies on aging, and some scientist consider it to be harmful. It may come to a surprise that aluminum can be found in a wide variety of foods and manufactured product as baking powder, non-dairy creamers, antacids, deodorants, cookware, and containers. Even tap water contains aluminum. With so many possible avenues for ingesting aluminum, we may be consuming more than nature originally intended. Mounting evidence that aluminum tends to accumulate in the body is even more cause for alarm. Unfortunately, there are no overt warning signs of excess aluminum accumulation, until levels have adverse effects on health. Aluminum Magnesium LinkResearchers have suggested that aluminum may be more likely to aciculate in the brains of persons whose diets are Magnesium deficient - which, unfortunately, includes 90% of Americans! Several studies have shown that animals fed diets low in Magnesium accumulate high concentration of aluminum in the central nervous system. One of Source Naturals Magnesium's Malatae functions is to activate the enzyme tubulin involved in the maintenance of Nerve tissue cells. It has been suggested that when there is not enough Magnesium in the body to plug into the appropriate receptor site on the tubulin enzyme, aluminum takes it's place instead.Magnesium Malate A One Two PunchMagnesium Malate supplies a one-two punch in combating excess aluminum accumulation. In addition to providing 45% of the US RDA for Magnesium, Source Naturals Magnesium Malate also supplies Malic Acid. Found abundantly in fruits such as apples, Malic Acid is also produced in the human body. It is a metabolite of the Krebs cycle, the set of biochemical reactions used to produce 90% of all energy in the cells of the body. Malic Acid readily crosses the Blood Brain Barrier and has been show to bind to aluminum. It functions in the body by drawing aluminum away from the tubulin enzyme, so that Magnesium can plug into the receptor site instead. Malic Acid's unique ability to bind with aluminum means it can be flushed out of the body, preventing unwanted build up. The Pro Active ApproachWith all of the negative evidence mounting against aluminum, educated consumers will want to take precautions in order to maintain their health and well being. Of course, the best way to avoid excess aluminum is to cut back on aluminum intake from know sources. Use only stainless steel or cast iron cookware, and look for aluminum-free antacids and deodorants. Always use filtered or spring water for drinking and cooking. And for those who want to take a pro-active approach, adding Source Naturals Magnesium Malate to your supplement regimen may be your best bet in depleting unwanted aluminum build up in the body.Leaders of the Wellness RevolutionSource Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individualâ€™s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned â€“ for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life â€“ simply didn't exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formulaâ„¢, now the industryâ€™s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award- winners include Life Force Multipleâ„¢, Mega-Kid Multipleâ„¢, Inflama-Restâ„¢, the Skin Eternalâ„¢ line, Higher Mindâ„¢, Essential Enzymesâ„¢, Male Responseâ„¢, and more. Source Naturalsâ€™ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulasâ„¢ help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals' nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of todayâ€™s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
