An essential mineral that aids in the production and transfer of energy, in muscle conduction and relaxation, in nerve conduction, and in many biochemical reactions as a cofactor to enzymes.*
Magnesium Orotate provides support for the cardiovascular system, and aids in normal energy levels.*
Orotic acid is a biochemical substance made naturally by the human body; orotates are mineral salts created by binding a mineral to orotic acid. Orotic acid is a biochemical substance made by all living cells and naturally by the human body. The mineral salts of orotic acid, called orotates, are used by plants and animals to form RNA and DNA.*
Perhaps the biggest proponent in the use of orotates was Dr. Hans Nieper, a German physician. Dr. Nieper believed orotates were far superior in their ability to carry molecules across cell membranes, producing higher concentrations of minerals in the cell. During his lifetime, Dr. Nieper was often ignored and criticized for his use of oratates.*
Recent research, however, has confirmed minerals bound to orotic acid are not only beneficial, but may be superior in their bioavailability and effectiveness. A 1998 study showed that triathletes who supplemented with magnesium orotate had improved glucose utilization and a reduced stress response without affecting competitive potential. This translated into improved swimming, cycling, and running times in the magnesium group compared with the controls.1 Competitive athletes have also used magnesium to improve endurance, it is known that exercise performance may be compromised with deficient magnesium levels.* 2,3
“The general population, even physically active individuals, have been documented to have insufficient magnesium intake."* 3 It has also been suggested that magnesium supplementation may improve the efficiency of energy metabolism.* 3
