Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral and the second most common deficiency of humans in developed countries. Aspartates are used to increase absorption of the minerals they are combined with and to enhance athletic performance.
Magnesium is necessary to synthesize proteins and it plays a role in the metabolism. Cells use magnesium to transport calcium and potassium ions across the cell walls. Healthy magnesium levels are key to proper nerve function, muscle contraction, heartbeat, and healthy bones.
