Mg-K Aspartate tablets, as provided by Douglas Laboratories®, deliver 100 mg of elemental magnesium and 99 mg of elemental potassium in their bioavailable aspartate forms.
Magnesium and potassium are two minerals with fundamentally important physiological functions in the body. However, typical diets in the U.S. and other industrialized countries often provide less than adequate amounts of magnesium and potassium. Supplementation with bioavailable aspartate salts of these two minerals can help bridge the gap between dietary intake and optimal requirement.
Magnesium plays an essential role in a wide range of fundamental cellular reactions. More than 300 enzymes require magnesium as a cofactor. Complexed with ATP, the main carrier of metabolic energy in the body, magnesium is essential for all biosynthetic processes: glycolysis, formation of c-AMP, energy-dependent membrane transport, transmission of genetic code for protein synthesis, and muscle function.
Mg-K Aspartate may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to increase their dietary intake of magnesium and potassium.
Each tablet contains:
- Magnesium (aspartate complex) – 100mg
- Potassium (aspartate complex) – 99mg
- Aspartic Acid (total yield) – 682mg
