Magnesium Citrate for Energy and Enzyme Function*

Magnesium is a mineral that is critical for energy production, metabolism, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and bone mineralization.* It is a required cofactor for an estimated 300 enzymes.* Among the reactions catalyzed by these enzymes are fatty acid synthesis, protein synthesis, and glucose metabolism.* Magnesium status is also important for regulation of calcium balance through its effects on the parathyroid gland.*

Magnesium citrate is a popular magnesium supplement because it is easy to absorb and has a high bioavailability. Bioavailability is the amount of an active ingredient that is available to the body for use. A study in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found that magnesium citrate has a bioavailability that is four times higher than magnesium oxide, another popular magnesium supplement.* This means that magnesium citrate is more effective at supporting energy production and enzyme function.*

How Magnesium Citrate Supports Energy Production*

Magnesium citrate supports energy production by helping to convert food into ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is the energy currency of the cell. It provides the energy needed for many important biological processes including muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission, and cell division. A lack of magnesium can lead to fatigue and low energy levels. Supplemental magnesium has been shown to improve symptoms of fatigue in people with chronic fatigue syndrome.* In one study, participants who took magnesium citrate for eight weeks had less fatigue and improved quality of life compared to those who did not take magnesium.*

Magnesium citrate is also critical for enzyme function.* Enzymes are proteins that catalyze chemical reactions in the body. They are involved in many important biological processes including digestion, metabolism, and immune function. A lack of enzymes can lead to problems with these processes. Supplementing with magnesium citrate has been shown to improve enzyme function in people with diabetes.* In one study, participants who took magnesium citrate for 12 weeks had improved blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity compared to those who did not take magnesium.*

In Summary:

Magnesium citrate is a popular magnesium supplement because it is easy to absorb and has a high bioavailability. Magnesium citrate supports energy production by helping to convert food into ATP (adenosine triphosphate). It also supports enzyme function which is critical for many important biological processes including digestion, metabolism, and immune function. If you are looking for a way to increase your energy levels or support your overall health, consider adding magnesium citrate to your supplement regimen.
