Anyone ever used them for something? I know fibromyalgia patients may use it, but aside from that.

Malate can be with magnesium, citrus, or calcium. Malic acid can be by itself but may not be as absorb-able.

Malic acid is naturally mostly found in fruit, pineapple, apples, raspberries, apricots, and some others. However it is fairly essential to our functions. Perhaps our bodies can store it, I don't know. But people with chronic fatigue may benefit.

I was taking Magnesium Malate for the magnesium, but found that it relaxes me, lets my brain not be in a panic, etc. Where as regular magnesium prevents depression, it doesn't do as much for other aspects. I haven't been eating fruit in awhile, and suspect that might be why I respond.

I suspect perhaps others on here have used it at some point though. I'm curious to hear some stories, experiences, or information.

The last time I bought magnesium I decided to try the malate version, and I have been very pleased with it so far! As you said, it is a good relaxant. Much more noticeable than with other versions of the same potency.

I use malic acid/magnesium malate in place of apple juice in liver flushes.

I wish liver flushes were not so involved. I suppose if I ever do one, that will take away the uneasiness I feel just thinking about it.

Malic acid is involved in the production of energy in the body. It plays a role in the molecules involved in controlling mitochondrial, energy production, within the cells. Malic acid provides greater stamina and endurance in muscle cells.

Malic acid is particularly useful in helping remove aluminum from the body. Aluminum toxicity is thought to be one contributor to fibromyalgia symptoms. While magnesium also helps block the toxic affects of aluminum, malic acid may be even more effective.

I used to take a supplement that was high in malic acid, along with a few other things. That supplement is no longer being manufactured, so I had to stop taking it. I'd found that supplement incredibly helpful at the time. That was long before I found BTD.

I've switched from taking oral magnesium to only using transdermal magnesium supplements. The last time I used magnesium malate, it actually made me feel worse than I did taking the magnesium citrate I'd used before that. I don't know if it was some kind of "healing reaction" or if I was reacting badly to the malate itself or something in the processing. I felt better again a few days after I stopped taking it.

All apple products are now an "avoid" for me, so that might be why I did so poorly on magnesium malate. Or it might have been corn residue or some other "avoid" in that particular  formulation.

It is wonderful to have a supplement that relaxes and energizes at the same time! And helps you sleep! Amazing!!

Interesting, I missed that. But I can't keep track of every supplement in my head. Again this is why I wish there was a comprehensive way to search supplements and protocols for specific things.
