What is the best magnesium to take for absorption? I have have magnesium oxide but I’m not sure that’s the best.
The Vitamin Professor Responds
There is no “best” form of Magnesium in terms of absorption. As a stand alone mineral perhaps Magnesium Citrate has slightly better absorption, however, the differences are minor.
I recommend taking magnesium in a powder form and in combination with protein. A Proteinated complex. That way it enters the body in combination with the amino acids found in protein. This can also be done by combining Magnesium with an isolated amino acid (like Glycine) this is referred to as chelated.
It is also important that other minerals and vitamins be present. The more complex the formulation the more thorough the absorption of all the nutrients.
That is why we focus on multiple powders at ALL ONE.
Hope this helps.
All the best,
