PRO Magnesium Plus provides both magnesium malate and magnesium glycinate. This simple, yet effective formula combines two of the most popular forms of magnesium for optimal effectiveness.
Magnesium helps maintain proper muscle function, metabolizes carbohydrates, proteins and fats, and is a factor in the maintenance of good health. Malic acid is important in the production of ATP (cellular energy), while glycine is an amino acid that acts as a central inhibitory neurotransmitter for a calming effect.
PRO Magnesium Plus contains only a true chelate of magnesium with malic acid and glycinate.
Pro Magnesium Plus provides elemental magnesium from magnesium malate and magnesium glycinate (fully reacted). Magnesium helps maintain proper muscle function, metabolize carbohydrates, proteins and fats, and is a factor in the maintenance of good health. Magnesium also helps in the development and maintenance of healthy teeth and bones.

Magnesium and ATP
Magnesium plays a critical role in the production and stabilization of the cellular energy molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP). It activates the majority of enzymes in the glycolytic and the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle. Without magnesium, ATP is quickly broken down into its inactive form.
Fibromyalgia is a common clinical syndrome of generalized muscle pain, stiffness, and chronic aching. Other prominent symptoms include chronic headaches, poor mood, sleep disturbances, and exercise intolerance.
Low ATP production is thought to be responsible for the muscle weakness and pain of fibromyalgia. Magnesium is required for muscle function and a deficiency often presents with excessive muscle tension, spasms, and restlessness. Furthermore, histochemical studies show that the tender points in fibromyalgia correspond with muscle tissue deficient in ATP.
Additionally, magnesium modulates the ion channels which regulate key nerve receptors such as those for the 5-HT3 serotonin receptor and N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), which are involved in the neurological aspects of fibromyalgic pain.
Malic Acid and Glycine
Malic acid plays an important role in the generation of mitochondrial ATP both under aerobic and anaerobic conditions, via the TCA cycle, the malate-aspartate shuttle, and the reduction to succinate or oxidation to oxaloacetate.
Glycine is an amino acid and acts like an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, creating a calming effect. Unlike many other forms of magnesium, magnesium glycinate is well tolerated and does not cause diarrhea.
