Magnesium malate, the magnesium salt of malic acid, is a mineral supplement often used for nutritional concerns. It is represented by the chemical formula C4H4MgO5 and has a molecular weight of 156.376 g/mol. Magnesium malate is discussed as being a more bioavailable form of magnesium, along with other forms such as citrate and glycinate.
Dimagnesium malate is another common form of this compound seen in the dietary supplement market, produced by such dimetalhydroxy malate-yielding processes as the one described by a 1997 patent awarded to Albion Minerals. The primary difference in this compound can be seen by its characteristic of having two elemental magnesium molecules, whereas magnesium malate has a single elemental magnesium molecule.
