AOR Cardio Mag 2.0 contains magnesium and orotic acid (pyrimidinecarboxylic acid) which exert complementary effects on the biosynthesis of pyrimidine nucleotides, helping to maintain normal glycogen stores, protein synthesis, ATP levels and muscle contractile function.
Research supports the ability of true magnesium orotate to support cardiac function.
AOR's magnesium orotate is fully-reacted, unlike most 'magnesium orotate' products which are food-grade mixtures of orotic acid with inorganic magnesium salts.
• Helps the heart deal with and recover from stress
• Increases heart energy stores and energy production
• Clinically shown to help patients with cardiac disorders
Two Kinds of Help For the Heart
Cardio•Mag 2.0 contains magnesium orotate, a strong combination for maintaining a healthy heart. Magnesium by itself is well known to be an important mineral for the heart. Orotate, besides being a carrier for magnesium, also has heart health benefits. Orotic acid is used to make the building blocks of DNA, and in animals, orotate increases the heart's energy stores and energy levels, and increases its protein synthesis. This is particularly important in people who have had heart failure, which causes heart energy levels to sink.
The benefits of magnesium orotate have been well tested. Clinical trials have shown improvements in heart function and overall health in a variety of patients with heart problems, including patients who have had cardiac surgery. Magnesium orotate also benefits those whose hearts function well. One study showed that this supplement improved physical performance and reduced negative impacts of exercise in triathletes.
The Real Thing
Cardio•Mag 2.0 contains fully reacted magnesium orotate that is not blended with lesser compounds, and that is easily absorbed in the body. This safe and powerful supplement helps to support and maintain a healthy heart
True Magnesium Orotate for Cardiovascular Health
Ask health-conscious people about the mineral most important to their heart health, and most will hit on magnesium right away. But few people look beyond the amount of elemental magnesium in their supplements to consider the importance of the other half of their magnesium supplement - the chelating amino acid or anion to which it's bound. For instance, the widely-used magnesium oxide has "extremely low" bioavailability (22.8%), making it more likely to cause diarrhea; and on top of this embarrassing side-effect, magnesium oxide is an antacid, which can impair digestion and nutrient absorption.
But there's more to the effects of a magnesium supplement than its bioavailability. Because the "other half" of one magnesium supplement is extensively documented to have profound effects on cardiovascular health. That supplement is true, fully-reacted Magnesium Orotate.
Magnesium Orotate is magnesium bound to orotic acid, a key intermediate in the biosynthesis of pyrimidine nucleotides (a building block of the "letters" of your DNA code, and of RNA, the messenger that delivers the instructions from the DNA to the cellular machinery that assembles cellular proteins based on DNA's commands). Although little known and underappreciated, decades of research and clinical trials have documented the powerful benefits of Magnesium Orotate to the weakened heart.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Reducing salt intake, should you care?
In our last blog article I discussed the dangers of dehydration during a heat wave. It was also remarked how our bodies don't just lose fluid, but also lose salts. As if it isn't clear yet, you will not just need to drink more water during a heat wave, but also need to consume more salts.
Because we are are bombarded with well-intended advice to limit salt intake because the average person consumes too much salt by eating too much junkfood, you would almost forget how essential minerals are and more specifically, sodium is for our health.
Why we aren't supposed to eat so much sodium
When there’s extra sodium in your bloodstream, sodium pulls water into your blood vessels, increasing the total amount of blood inside your blood vessels. With more blood flowing through your blood vessels, blood pressure may increase too much.
Even if you don’t have high blood pressure, it is postulated that eating less sodium can help blunt the rise in blood pressure that occurs with age, and reduce your risk of heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney disease, osteoporosis, stomach cancer and even headaches.
The extra water in your body (from temporary high salt intake) can also lead to bloating which can feel very uncomfortable.
Epidemiological study: more muscle strength with more magnesium
The more magnesium elderly people have in their blood, the more muscle strength they have. This is the conclusion from an Italian epidemiological study done at the University of Palermo, which examined eleven hundred people aged between sixty and seventy. Magnesium increased the strength with which the elderly Italians could close a grip spring, the amount of kilograms they could raise with their calves and the weight they could shift doing leg extensions.
Hypertension and stressMention hypertension and the first thought most have is too much salt. This is only partially true. More important risk factors are obesity, diabetes, drinking too much alcohol, smoking and family history.
You may add stress to this list of predictive factors. Young Swedish conscripts that were categorized as 'easily stressed', had a far higher chance to get hypertension later in life, especially when they were already overweight as a young adult and also developed diabetes.
