Magnesium Orotate 775mg
Orotates are mineral salts of orotic acid — used by plants and animals to make DNA and RNA. The German physician Hans Nieper
used orotates clinically to treat thousands of patients for nearly every ailment imaginable. Unfortunately, Nieper tried to
explain his clinical results by invoking nonsensical physical theories. Consequently, his contributions to medicine were ignored
by the medical world, and most of his medical claims were never rigorously tested. In recent years a few of his orotate applications
have received scientific scrutiny and have been found to work.
Calcium orotate was used by Nieper to treat bone loss and pain due to inflammation or osteoporosis, psoriasis, high blood
pressure, angina pectoris, multiple sclerosis, encephalitis, retinitis, hepatitis, and colitis.
Magnesium orotate is used by athletes to increase endurance. It is also used to treat symptoms of magnesium deficiency, including
diabetes, hypertension, dementia, and osteoporosis, and to treat migraines, asthma, chronic lung disease, heart attacks, arrhythmias,
blood vessel stiffness, atherosclerosis, and high blood pressure.
Potassium orotate is used to treat symptoms of magnesium deficiency: diabetes, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, rheumatoid
arthritis, and heart disease. Nieper combined potassium and magnesium orotates to treat cardiovascular diseases. Other applications
include wound healing, immune enhancement, depression and anxiety.
Lithium orotate: Lithium has long been used for manic-depression. High doses depress dopamine release, flattening elevated
moods; lower doses stimulate serotonin synthesis, producing an antidepressant effect. Lithium reputedly is also neuroprotective,
suggesting its use in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. It is thought to lower blood glucose levels
and to have immune-enhancing and antiviral effects (especially against herpes simplex). Nieper used lithium orotate to treat
depression, headaches, migraine, epilepsy, and alcoholism.
Zinc orotate is used to treat symptoms of zinc deficiency: osteoporosis, hypogonadism, low testosterone levels, cardiovascular
disease, diabetes, atrophy of the thymus, low white blood cell counts, and lowered immunity. In Nieper’s opinion, zinc orotate
works better than other zinc salts.
Osteo Forte Orotate amplifies calcium orotate’s effects on bone metabolism by combining it with synergistic substances, including
the orotates of zinc and magnesium.
