Mag-Malate tablets, provided by Douglas Laboratories, provide magnesium and malic acid, two key nutrients involved in energy production. Mag-Malate provides magnesium as an Albion glycine/lysine amino acid chelate, which has superior absorption and is highly tolerated.
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the body’s primary form of energy currency. The hydrolysis of ATP to adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and phosphate is the predominant reaction used to create energy for physiological processes. Thus, generation of ATP is the central goal of energy production There are numerous routes of ATP production. Three primary methods for generating ATP in skeletal muscle include immediate, high intensity ATP production, nonoxidative energy production, and oxidative energy production. Immediate, high intensity ATP production can be achieved through two primary reactions: the combination of ADP and inorganic phosphate and the donation of a phosphate from creatine phosphate to ADP. Both of these systems are used for quick, intense energy production in the muscles. Nonoxidative energy production, or glycolysis, occurs in the anaerobic cytosol. Oxidative energy production, a collective term often used to describe the Kreb’s cycle and the electron transport system (ETS), occurs in the aerobic environment of the mitochondria.
Energy production within the body is a complicated process, involving numerous enzymes, cofactors, and substrates. Among those substances crucial to ATP generation are magnesium and malic acid.
