Magnesium citrate malate as a source of magnesium added for nutritional purposes to food supplements

Magnesium citrate malate as a source of magnesium added for nutritional purposes to food supplements

Published on: Thu, 06 Dec 2018 The present scientific opinion deals with the assessment of the bioavailability of magnesium, from the proposed nutrient source, magnesium citrate malate (MgCM), when added for nutritional purposes to food supplements. MgCM is a mixed salt consisting of magnesium cations and citrate and malate anions, and with a magnesium content of 12–15%. MgCM is proposed to be used in food supplements that are intended to provide up to 300–540 mg/day magnesium. The data provided demonst...
