It plays a major role in muscle and nerve function, delivery of fluid to cell structure, keeps the heart rhythm steady, and promotes normal blood pressure and blood sugars. In the sports nutrition arena, magnesium is most widely known for its support of energy metabolism ATP, an enzymatic energy source on a cellular level and must be bound to Mg (Mg-ATP) in order to be biologically active and unleash its power.

Iron is an essential nutrient in human health, playing a role in immune function, cardiovascular health and cognitive development. Its importance was first recognized about 1500 BC, and by the 16th century, a relationship between iron and blood was well-known. Iron is a constituent of hemoglobin, myoglobin, ferritin and a number of endogenous enzymes. Albion Human Nutrition developed a patented form of non-heme iron with bioavailability and tolerance similar to heme iron. Characterized by a ferrous cation bonded to two glycine molecules, this ferrous iron amino acid chelate is sold under the brand name Ferrochel.
