SHC’s Magnesium Malate/Glycinate contains Albion®’s TRAACS® magnesium lysinate glycinate (mineral amino acid chelate) and Albion’s chelated dimagnesium malate—both formulated for enhanced absorption. Malic acid (from di-magnesium malate) supports energy production.
» The body can efficiently absorb dipeptides (two amino acids linked together), Albion’s TRAACS® magnesium lysinate glycinate is an excellent delivery system for magnesium. In general, Albion TRAACS® patented mineral amino acid chelates are resistant to competitive minerals, do not weaken the action of vitamins, and pose a smaller risk of overdosing.
» Magnesium and malate play critical roles in energy production under aerobic conditions or when oxygen is lacking. Malic acid also appears to exert a protective effect by binding aluminum.
» Magnesium is highly required to maintain genomic stability, stabilizing DNA and chromatin. It is required for the removal of DNA damage generated by environmental toxins, endogenous processes, and DNA replication. Deficiency increases the susceptibility to oxidative stress, cardiovascular heart diseases as well as accelerated aging. Malic acid may also support antioxidant systems by enhancing glutathione and antioxidant enzymes.
» The US government study, often cited, shows 68% of Americans are deficient in magnesium based on dietary intake (which is high to begin with). This percentage is much higher due to those with the numerous habits and medications that deplete magnesium.
» The highest levels of testosterone were found in male athletes both exercising and receiving magnesium supplementation.
» One study found that centenarians (those living over 100) have a higher total body magnesium and lower calcium levels than most elderly people.
» 40-60% of sudden deaths from heart attacks occur in the complete absence of any prior artery blockage, clot formation or heart rhythm abnormalities. They are most likely occurring from spasms in the arteries with magnesium being a natural antispasmodic.
» Magnesium deficiency causes arrhythmia, overactivity to stress hormones (adrenaline), overproduction of cholesterol, blood clotting in blood vessels, constriction of blood vessels, high sodium/potassium ratio, insulin resistance, atherosclerosis and vulnerability to oxidative stress.
