Thorne Research Magnesium Citramate 90 Caps
"Magnesium Citramate provides magnesium bound to citrate-malate for superior absorption.* Both magnesium and malic acid have been found to provide support to individuals with muscle tenderness and fatigue.* A study of 24 individuals found malic acid along with 300 mg magnesium (equivalent to 2 capsules of Magnesium Citramate) taken two times daily provided significant support in measurements of tenderness and discomfort.*
Magnesium is present in all cells of the body and is involved in over 300 enzymatic processes, including energy production.* Magnesium is essential for maintaining normal bone density, normal cardiac rhythmicity, normal pulmonary function, and normal blood glucose regulation.* Other body functions requiring magnesium include nerve conduction, methyl-group transfer, conversion of pyridoxine to pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6), production of energy, and muscle contraction.* Magnesium supplementation appears to be a significant support to maintaining already normal bone density.*

For aching muscles due to overwork or dehydration.
All of Thorne's products are optimized for absorption and efficacy and are generally found only in health practitioner's professional offices. In addition to correcting common magnesium deficiency, Magnesium Citramate is especially helpful in addressing muscle tenderness from overexertion. Just follow the directions on the bottle for dosing and bear in mind that magnesium supplementation can induce softer stools at high doses.
