Source Naturals Magnesium Malate is a compound of magnesium and malic acid. It supports proper muscle function, cardiovascular health, and energy production. Malic acid is a natural fruit acid that is present in most cells in the body and is an intermediate in the Krebs cycle, where energy is captured during the metabolism of carbs and fats. Magnesium is and essential cofactor for over 300 enzymatic reactions in metabolism, ATP synthesis and energy production. Magnesium plays important roles in muscle relaxation, because of its function as a cofactor for enzymes and because of its ability to counterbalance calcium in the cell.

My very experienced fibro doctor recommended using Mg-malate to help reduce muscle pain. It has been a life-saver for me, and does a lot to reduce muscle soreness and cramping. These Source Natural capsules are a great size, allowing me to spread my dose over the day. They're not full of unnecessary fillers, which makes them much easier on the stomach than most others. I'm approaching the decade mark on living with fibro, and I highly recommend these.
*This* form of magnesium is much easier on my stomach. Other forms also help with pain and cramping (muscles, menstrual, etc.) as well as magnesium malate, but for me the others came at a cost that I hated to pay--bathroom emergencies. Magnesium malate helps with sleep, relaxation, fibromyalgic pain. Take it apart from your calcium supplements--they compete for the same receptor sites in the body. This is a great brand and a great price.

Disappointed That This Is Not Kosher

Previously, when I've emailed the brand it mentioned that the capsules were bovine sourced. Lately i re ordered and clarified the capsules again, they said it was a mix of bovine and pork. Will be great if companies can list their source of capsules
Excellent magnesium supplement!

I've been taking this for at least a year now. It's a very good magnesium supplement. Originally I was taking just the straight gel caps, but I read that you get more bang for your buck if a supplement is in liquid form. So, I pull these caps apart and put the powder in water. The flavor is a slightly tart flavor, not great but tolerable even in just water. It doesn't mix very well - it's gritty, although if you can put it in the water 10-20 minutes before taking it, it helps a little. I usually have to follow up with straight water to get the grit down. This might sound like too much trouble, but I don't mind doing it and if it helps with better absorption (I think it does) then it's worth it. The recommended dosage is 6 caps a day. I found that to be the dose that helps me the most, when I can feel the true "magnesium calm" kicking in. Unfortunately, though, that's also when the diarrhea kicks in for me! I can only take four without upsetting my very sensitive and highly reactive gut. So I'm working on gradually upping the dose, I hope I will eventually be able to get up to six caps.
