Magnesium Citrate Malate for food supplements


Without the vitally important element Magnesium, it is impossible for living cells to fulfil their manifold physiological functions. Magnesium is of central importance in almost all metabolic processes and essential for the neuromuscular and cardiovascular system. A sufficient supply of Magnesium is important throughout lifetime – especially during pregnancy, childhood and old age. People in these phases of life and people with certain diseases have an increased need for Magnesium.

A Magnesium deficiency can lead to cardiac arrhythmia, anorexia, lethargy, weakness, agitation, muscle spasms, tremors and muscle cramps. The use of food supplements can prevent a deficiency. In Europe, the Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) for the daily intake of Magnesium is 375 mg/day for adults. It is advantageous to have a continuous supply with Magnesium throughout the day. According to the Commission Regulation (EU) 2021/418 amending Directive 2002/46/EC for food supplements our new Magnesium Salt is permitted for the fortification of food supplements in Europe.

Magnesium Citrate Malate by Dr. Paul Lohmann® is a fully reacted Mineral and a new and innovative ingredient for food supplements. The combination of Magnesium with two organic acids, citric acid and malic acid, leads to a Mineral Salt with excellent solubility. Citric acid and malic acid are part of the human metabolism and therefore easy to metabolize. The free-flowing and non-hygroscopic powder is clear soluble and stable in solution. The Magnesium content is similar to other organic Magnesium Salts, but the performance in liquid application forms is much better. Comparable products are not stable in solution over storage time or even insoluble. The original taste is more pleasant compared to other Magnesium sources and can be easily masked. Magnesium Citrate Malate is especially designed by Dr. Paul Lohmann® for the use in high concentrated liquid ready-to-drink food supplements.
