Ortho Molecular Fibro Malate - 180 ct
Ortho Molecular's Fibro Malate is a comprehensive formula designed to support optimal energy production in individuals experiencing occasional fatigue, nervous system hypersensitivity, discomfort and tenderness in soft tissues.
Research has shown that mitochondrial dysfunction and nervous system hypersensitivity can contribute to soft tissue discomfort, tenderness, muscle tightness, insufficient sleep, and mood changes. Adaptations of muscle cells appear to have dramatically reduced numbers of mitochondria, which affects overall adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. Fibro Malate is formulated to support individuals experiencing occasional fatigue and hypersensitivity in connective tissues, muscles and fascia, a phenomenon commonly thought to be caused by adaptations in the nervous system and cellular energy production.
Malic Acid: Malic acid is an organic substance found in plants and fruits (particularly apples) and is involved in the production of energy in the body. Malic acid plays a key role in mitochondrial ATP production. It is involved with the last step in the Kreb’s cycle, providing the last intermediate that can be combined with acetyl-coA and begin the cycle again. Malic acid supplementation has been shown to improve myalgia, support energy and provide a chelating and systemic alkalinization effect.
Magnesium: Magnesium is a key cofactor for over 600 enzymatic reactions in the body. Magnesium is also directly involved in muscle relaxation, energy production, and it is well established that it actively blocks the glutamate receptor N methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA). Activation of the NMDA receptor results in increased sensitivity of spinal cord and brain pathways that process sensory information.
Vitamins B1, B6, B12: Key B vitamins, such as B1, B6, and B12 maintain nerve growth and repair, nerve signaling and pain receptor signaling.
