Aspartate Salts and Magnesium

  • Aspartic acid appears to enhance the activity of cellular bioener­getic mechanisms, thus increasing the energy available to active tissues such as the heart and musculoskeletal system.
  • Double-blind human studies have found aspartate salts helpful for supporting normal energy production (Am J Med Sci 1962;243:758-69; J Abdom Surg 1962;4:73; Clin Med 1964; Jan:85-90; Curr Ther Res 1962; Mar:98-106).
  • Magnesium is essential for the production of adequate ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and supplementation may be necessary to optimize this production in some patients (Magnes Res 1997;10:329-37; Lancet 1992;340:426).
