Amplify Creatine Absorption with These Key Nutrients

Which Magnesium form Works Best for Which Condition

Which Magnesium form Works Best for Which Condition







In this short video, best selling author and pharmacist, Dr. James DiNicolantonio discusses why coffee drinkers should consider increasing both their salt and magnesium.   

He also reviews the three main considerations when it comes to choosing the right magnesium supplement for you:

  1. Does it have a laxative effect? (Magnesium citrate is often used for it’s pro-laxative properties—but that doesn’t mean it’s the best form for absorption.)
  2. What’s the bioavailability of the magnesium? (e.g. oxide VS glycinate)
  3. Does the form of the magnesium help it penetrate into the cell?

Overview of the Three Main Magnesium Forms: 

  • Magnesium Citrate: poorly absorbed, especially in higher doses, but can help you ‘go number two’ (This is why Mag. Citrate is the form of Magnesium in our product Number 2.)


  • Magnesium Glycinate Chelate from Albion: highly absorbable, organic Albion mineral chelate. Studies show magnesium supplementation partially reversed sleep changes associated with aging and improved objective and subjective measures of sleep. Improving sleep quality and countering the effects of chronic stress positively impact mood—another area that is beneficially influenced by optimal magnesium status. 


  •  Magnesium L Threonate: This form was developed by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) researchers to support “brain power.” Studies show it supports healthy brain magnesium levels, synapse number and function and cognitive health*.
