Magnesium orotate is a mineral transporter where magnesium is bound orotic acid a natural component of whey. Dr. Hans Nieper used this mineral transporter for magnesium nutritional support in thousands of patients who suffered from cardiovascular conditions. This magnesium mineral transporter has very high absorption with the whole compound passing in an intact state through the small intestine into the blood stream. Once in the blood stream, orotates have a particular affinity for bone, cartilage, liver, brain, heart, lungs and the walls of blood vessels. Due to its ready absorption by the lining of blood vessels, magnesium orotate will activate enzymes in the vessel walls slowly mobilizing deposits of cholesterol. The magnesium will also relax the smooth muscle of arteries. Both of these processes will increase the elasticity of blood vessels so over time so magnesium orotate can be a beneficial supportive nutrient in for cardiovascular health.
Magnesium Orotate 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. Nervous System
6. Renal System
Magnesium is needed for more than 300 biochemical reactions in the body. To include, maintaining, muscle and nerve function, heart rhythm, and supports a healthy immune system, as well as keep bones strong, amongst others.
It is important for the activity of many enzymes
Magnesium can assist in the transference of ionâ€™s through the walls of the cell liberating free energy which is transformed into high-energy phosphate bonds.Â (source: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/cgi/mesh/2009/MB_cgi?mode=&term=oxidative+phosphorylation)
Magnesium plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism. It may influence the release and activity of insulin, the hormone that helps control blood glucose (sugar) levels. In older adults, correcting magnesium depletion may improve insulin response and action. (source: http://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/magnesium.asp)
Orotate is the salt of a crystalline acid called orotic acid which “occurs in milk and is a growth factor for various microorganisms (as Lactobacillus bulgaricus) and a precursor of the pyrimidine bases of nucleotides”
