Dr. Paul Lohmann®, a family-owned company with more than 130 years’ experience in manufacturing specialty metal and mineral salts, recently discussed the role of Magnesium Citrate Malate in the beverage and supplement industry.

Because of its high bioavailability, Magnesium Citrate Malate aids the body in utilizing carbohydrates, amino acids, and fats for energy, and activates enzymes supporting cardiac health. The Citrate-Malate combination is also 12% more soluble, which is particularly important for the sports beverage industry.

The market for ready-to-drink nutritional supplements is growing, and Magnesium Citrate Malate is a perfect choice for highly concentrated solutions. It’s clear, the taste can be easily masked and beverage production is more efficient with better results. In contrast, normal magnesium citrate isn’t stable during storage, and sedimentation will occur.

DPL’s Magnesium Citrate Malate has been expressly developed for the beverage market, nutritional supplements in liquid form, sports drinks, and other Magnesium- enriched beverages.

Even the highest quality Chlorides or Sulfates can’t compare to DPLs Magnesium Citrate Malate, as their flavor is unappealing, and bioavailability is low.

The Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI) are the most recent set of recommendations established by the US Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine which outline Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) ranges of 310-420 mg Magnesium for adults. Magnesium plays many different roles in promoting health at all ages, including bone stabilization and growth, aiding muscle contraction, regulating the cardiovascular system, and more.

With a flexible, innovative spirit, DPL responds to the changing needs of its business partners and clients, creating new solutions for modern manufacturing.
