Magnesium Malate is a compound of magnesium and malic acid, clinically shown to soothe and energize muscle cells. Malic acid is a natural fruit acid that is present in most cells in the body and is an important component of numerous enzymes key to ATP synthesis and energy production. Therefore, magnesium malate may be helpful in those suffering from fatigue due to fibromyalgia.

Magnesium is an essential mineral in over 300 enzymatic reactions in metabolism. These reactions include those involved in the Krebs cycle (one of the body's main energy production processes), energy storage, the breakdown of fatty acids, protein synthesis, DNA metabolism, neurotransmitter activity, and hormone regulation. Magnesium is stored primarily in the bones and plays a role in the absorption of calcium by the bones.

Magnesium Malate: Metabolic Energy and Metal Cleansing

Magnesium Malate is a highly absorbable form of magnesium that provides the benefits of this mineral, along with the benefits of malic acid, a nutrient found to contribute to the process of transforming food into ATP, the body's energy source. Malic acid is a metabolite in the Krebs cycle, as mentioned above, which is responsible for the biochemical reactions that produce 90 percent of the energy in the cells of the body.

This compound is most highly esteemed for helping to:

  • Produce energy
  • Soothe muscles
  • Eliminate aluminum

Malic acid is known to cross the blood-brain barrier and bind to aluminum, helping to draw this metal away from a particular enzyme so magnesium can plug into the receptor sites instead, supporting nerve cell growth and communication. The harmful aluminum can now be flushed out of the brain and the body.


The cause of fibromyalgia is not fully understood. However, some leading fibromyalgia researchers believe that there is a malfunction in the body's ability to manufacture energy. The muscles burn energy faster than it can be produced, which is compounded by a shortage of the nutrients necessary to make the energy. This may cause the muscles to rely too heavily on the inefficient (anaerobic) energy cycle for much of their energy production instead of the more efficient (aerobic) energy cycle. Malic acid plays a key role in the production of energy in the cells; therefore, it is often recommended with magnesium for fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Some fibromyalgia patients may be magnesium deficient. An article in the Journal of Nutritional Medicine pointed out that many fibromyalgia patients have responded quite favorably to magnesium malate.  Magnesium and malic acid are important substances in the manufacture of energy for the human muscle cell.

Malic Acid and Fibromyalgia

Recent studies have indicated that those with fibromyalgia tend to have decreased levels of magnesium in comparison to the control groups. [ 1 ] According to a study published in the Journal of Nutritional Medicine, Abraham et al hypothesized that a magnesium deficiency found in muscles cells could possibly play a role in the development of fibromyalgia. The group demonstrated that a daily supplement of 300-600 of malate acid resulted in improvements of symptoms, as well as in the number and severity of tender points.

Magnesium is an essential mineral in over 300 enzymatic reactions in metabolism. These reactions include those involved in the Krebs cycle (one of the body's energy production systems), such as:

  • DNA metabolism
  • Vital for cell formation
  • Activation of B vitamins
  • Energy transport and storage
  • The breakdown of fatty acids
  • Proper nerve function and neurotransmitter activity
  • The formation and maintenance of protein, fatty acids, and bone.
  • The formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body's energy source.

Magnesium Malate is a highly absorbable form of magnesium that provides the benefits of this mineral, along with the benefits of malic acid, a nutrient found to contribute to the process of transforming food into ATP, the body's energy source. Many fibromyalgia sufferers have stated that the combination of magnesium and malic acid have been helpful for their symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.

Studies on Magnesium and Malic Acid to Reduce Fibromyalgia Pain

In a 1992 study 15 fibromyalgia patients received an oral dose of 1200-2400 mg of malate (malic acid) and 300-600 mg of magnesium over a four and 8 week period. Patients reported a reduction in pain across a tender point index (TPI). Six subjects felt an improvement in 48 hours.

During another study conducted in 1995, researchers gave 24 subjects with fibromyalgia a low tablet with 50 mg magnesium and 200 mg malic acid. Scientists measured pain levels through patient self-assessment and the tender point index. Results showed that the low dose, short term trial was not effective to reduce fibromyalgia pain. However, higher doses over an extended duration significantly reduced subjects' pain.

Clinical Trial: Magnesium Malate and Fibromyalgia

There are many people with fibromyalgia that have reported positive benefits from taking magnesium in combination with malic acid, as well as studies to back them up. For example:

In a randomized, placebo-controlled, open-label, crossover trial (grade I evidence-based), Abraham et al used a combination of magnesium (300-600 mg) and malate (1,200-2,400 mg) in 15 patients during an eight-week period. [ 3 ] The results showed a statistically significant clinical improvement (P < 0.001) in the treatment group vs. placebo as measured by two outcomes. TPI scores (± SE) of 19.6 ± 2.1 prior to treatment decreased to 8 ± 1.1 and 6.5 ± 0.74 at four and eight weeks, respectively, on the mag-malate combination. Conversely, following an average of eight weeks, six patients were switched to placebo for two weeks. Their TPI scores increased significantly (P < 0.001) from 6.8 ± 0.75 to 21.5 ± 1.4. Subjective improvement of fibromyalgia symptoms occurred within 48 hours of magnesium supplementation in the mag-malate group; symptoms worsened in the placebo group.

Many practitioners have found it to be useful in a pain reduction regimen for this disease at a higher dosage (up to 600 mg magnesium and 2,400 mg malic acid).

Other Potential Uses

Blood levels of Magnesium have been lower in females with PMS and since it can help relax muscle tissues and may be involved in neurotransmitters responsible for improved moods, women with PMS may find it helpful. 

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Levels may be low in CFS sufferers. Magnesium that is bound to an organic compound called malic acid is absorbed from the body in higher amounts and may have an effect in reducing the pain of CFS.

It has been observed that most diabetics have low levels of this mineral. Magnesium supplementation can also improve insulin production in elderly people with type 2 diabetes.

Headaches – Migraines
Magnesium is an essential mineral and is needed for muscle relaxation; therefore, it has been shown to be very useful in all types of headaches, especially the types that may be hormonally related.

Muscle Relaxation and Stress
Magnesium has been shown to help with muscle relaxation, heart health, and normal stress responses. Magnesium also works with vitamin B6 in several enzymatic pathways in the body, so it can be beneficial to take them together.
