Magnesium is an essential mineral, and is an electrolyte which plays a key role in numerous bodily processes. While a good number of foods are rich in Magnesium, deficiencies are very frequent in the standard western diet.
Magnesium Malate is a type of magnesium supplement made by combining elemental magnesium with malic acid and contains 15% elemental magnesium by weight. (1500 mg contains 225 mg of elemental magnesium.)
We don’t recommend exceeding 6 capsules per day unless directed by a physician, as it is possible to get too much magnesium and 3000 mg of Magnesium Malate will provide a full day’s requirement before taking into account magnesium obtained through diet.
It’s not recommended to exceed 6,000 mg per day as consuming too much magnesium can cause magnesium toxicity. Symptoms of magnesium toxicity include low blood pressure, facial flushing, weakness, and heart problems.
