What Are the Benefits of Magnesium Malate

magnesium malate benefits

Magnesium malate is an exceptional choice for general supplementation due to its high bioavailability, ensuring that your body effectively absorbs and utilises the magnesium.

In addition, both the malic acid component of magnesium malate and the magnesium itself provide benefits for muscle health and play a role in energy production. This synergistic combination contributes to improved muscle function, reduced fatigue, and optimal physical performance.

As per EFSA-approved health claims, magnesium contributes too:

  • Reduction of Tiredness & Fatigue - Magnesium plays a vital role in supporting electrolyte balance and normal energy-yielding metabolism to help reduce tiredness and fatigue.
  • Normal Nervous System & Psychological Function: Magnesium supports the normal functioning of the nervous system and promotes healthy psychological function, helping to maintain a balanced and calm state of mind.
  • Normal Muscle Function (Including Heart) - Magnesium is essential for muscle contraction and relaxation, including heart muscle, thus contributing to normal muscle function throughout the body.
  • Maintenance of Bones & Teeth - Magnesium supports the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, ensuring that your skeletal system remains strong and resilient.
  • Protein Synthesis & Cell Division - Magnesium contributes to normal protein synthesis and also has a role in the process of cell division, supporting tissue growth and repair throughout the body.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is magnesium malate?

Magnesium malate is a supplement made up of magnesium and malic acid. 

Magnesium is one of the 21 essential minerals your body needs for optimal health and is essential in over 300 chemical reactions and processes in your body, many critical for survival.

Magnesium is also known as an electrolyte, which means that it helps to power your body’s “electrical circuit”. Your brain, heart, nerves and muscles all depend on this electrical circuit (and magnesium) to function properly, making magnesium one of the most important minerals for survival. 

Malic acid is an organic compound found in tart foods like apples. It’s often used as a natural additive to give foods a tangy flavour, and as a skincare ingredient thanks to its gentle exfoliating properties. And because it’s a key part of the body’s energy production cycle, it’s increasingly used in supplements to help combat fatigue. 

How much magnesium malate should I take?

The recommended magnesium dosage and intake changes depending on your age and sex. The table below shows the adequate intake (AI) and recommended dietary allowance (RDA) from the National Institute of Health.

*Adequate Intake (AI)

How is magnesium malate different from other forms of magnesium?

Magnesium malate is unique due to its high bioavailability and the presence of malic acid, which is involved in the Krebs cycle and cellular energy production. This makes it particularly beneficial for supporting energy levels and muscle health.

What is the difference between magnesium malate and magnesium citrate?

While both magnesium malate and magnesium citrate are highly bioavailable forms of magnesium, the main difference lies in the accompanying acid. Magnesium malate contains malic acid, which is involved in energy production, while magnesium citrate contains citric acid and may have a mild laxative effect in some individuals.

How long does it take for magnesium malate to work?

The time it takes for magnesium malate to work may vary between individuals. Some users may notice improvements in energy levels and muscle function within a few hours to a few days after taking the supplement.

Does magnesium malate have side effects?

Some types of magnesium supplements can cause side effects like nausea, cramps or diarrhoea. Fortunately, magnesium malate isn’t one of them! It’s very well-tolerated, which means you’re unlikely to experience side effects. 

Magnesium malate is generally safe for most people, but it might not be suitable for people with certain health conditions. Kidney disease, for example, can sometimes mean that your body can’t get rid of excess magnesium and could leave you with hypermagnesemia, or too much magnesium in the body. Magnesium can also react with certain medications and affect how well they work. If you have a health condition or you take medication, it’s best to check with your doctor first.

Does magnesium malate cause diarrhea?

Magnesium malate is less likely to cause diarrhea compared to some other forms of magnesium. However, individual reactions may vary, and high doses may still cause digestive discomfort in some people.
