Magnesium arginate is a mineral transporter composed of magnesium bound to the amino acid arginine. Arginine is an alkaline amino acid and the extra arginine is good for increasing blood flow. Dr. Nieper and Dr. Franz Kohler developed a series of mineral transporters called arginates in the 1960’s, but they were not brought to the market until the late 1980’s. This magnesium transporter along with magnesium orotate activates magnesium dependent enzymes in blood vessel walls relaxing the smooth muscles of the artery walls.
Magnesium, calcium and zinc arginate also improve glucose transport out of the blood into the cells, which could be good nutritional support for people with glucose issues. Magnesium is essential to good health. It is needed in hundreds of important biochemical reactions in the body. Magnesium helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.
Magnesium Arginate w/ aspartate is one of Dr. Hans Nieper’s formulas that supports the following systems:
1. Cardiovascular System
2. Lymphatic System
3. Digestive System
4. Muscular System
5. Sensory System
6. Skeletal System
