Magnesium Taurate 400 tablets deliver 400 mg per serving of elemental magnesium in their bioavailable taurate forms. Each tablet provides 100 mg of elemental magnesium, and approximately 400 mg of amino acid taurine.
Magnesium is a mineral with a fundamentally important physiological function in the body. However, typical
diets in the U.S. and other industrialized countries often provide less than adequate amounts of magnesium.
Supplementation with bioavailable magnesium 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 adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the main
carrier of metabolic energy in the body, magnesium is essential for all biosynthetic processes: glycolysis,
formation of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP), energy-dependent membrane transport, transmission
of genetic code for protein synthesis, and muscle function. Magnesium is also involved in maintaining normal
heart function and healthy blood pressure. Two thirds of the body’s magnesium content is in the skeleton.
Recent animal studies show that magnesium supplementation supports bone formation while increasing its
dynamic strength, but also balances normal bone resorption processes. ‡
