Kirkman® offers 1000 mg Magnesium Malate capsules in a hypoallergenic formulation for individuals with special requirements and sensitivities.  Each capsule provides 200 mg of elemental magnesium.

Magnesium malate is an excellent source of magnesium for the body that supplies malic acid when ingested.  Malic acid is reportedly one of the few ingredients that bind with aluminum to form a complex that can be excreted from the body.

Magnesium is an essential mineral that is involved in many body functions as well as being a constituent of bones and teeth.  It is an essential element of cellular metabolism and is an enzyme activator.  Other body actions include:

     •  Magnesium relaxes nerve impulses and muscle contractions.
     •  Magnesium promotes relaxation and, in the process, may aid in restful sleep1,2.

Magnesium supplements usually have their beginning as minerals that have been influenced by our environment. For that reason, the purity of magnesium raw materials is important.  Magnesium, like calcium, can have undesirable impurities present.  The responsibility to assure the absence of lead and other heavy metals falls on the manufacturer.  Kirkman® uses only the purest forms of magnesium that have been tested for heavy metal content, as well as other impurities.

There are many different forms of magnesium, and the Physician's Desk Reference for Nutritional Supplements states that there is no compelling data indicating absorption differences.  There are reported differences in how different forms affect the gastrointestinal tract, however.  Below are some guidelines, though individual results may vary and should be discussed with your physician before administration.
 
     •  oxide:  tends to firm stools
     •  glycinate:  a very gentle form of magnesium that is easier on the system
     •  citrate:  tends to loosen stools
     •  sulfate:  tends to loosen stools
     •  chloride:  tends to loosen stools
