I'm interested in the type of magnesium you ate all on I.e. magnesium citrate or magnesium taurate. I will post later about what type is best for what but I can't right now so would like to know which you use and what results you get.
I can't post all of the magnesiums on here so i am going to post the best and the ones to never takes after over 48 hours of research (actual time researching, over about a 1 and a half). A general rule of thumb is that chelated magnesiums are the best however 2 of them are poisonous but still sold!
Best Magnesiums: Magnesium Threonate - The best form of magnesium, helps with brain health, believed to cross the Blood Brain Barrier to the Brain! Magnesium Glycinate - Relaxation, Pain and fatigue (symptoms and conditions) and Brain Health Magnesium Malate - Muscle Pain, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Magnesium Taurate or Magnesium Orotate - Heart Health and Repair over 6-12 months Magnesium Citrate - Laxative (To aid going to the toilet/moving your bowels) Magnesium Carbonate - Acid Reflux Magnesium Chloride - Low level of stomach acid Magnesium Hydroxide (Commonly know as Milk of Magnesia) - Antacid/ for Acid Reflux and Laxative
Stay Away from: Magnesium Oxide - Although it has a high magnesium content only 4% is absorbed so if you took 100mg you would only actually be getting 4mg Magnesium Sulfate - With the exception of epsom salts, useless Magnesium Pidolate - Apart from raising magnesium levels, no health benefits Magnesium Lactate Magnesium Phosphate
TOXIC/POISONOUS: Magnesium Aspartate - NEUROTOXIC, if taken in large quantities this can lead to pain conditions and many brain conditions as it contains a Neurotransmitter which in high enough quantities is deadly Magnesium Ascorbate - Again NEUROTOXIC
Any I haven't mentioned feel free to ask about but they are most likely useless
If anyone wants me to recommended which magnesium is best for them please make a thread I. E. "Reece - Magnesium" and list your symptoms, current supplements ts and medications and the effect you are hoping for from the magnesium. ( I. Might also recommend other vitamins and minerals I. E. Vitamin D)
So that everyone knows: I have no formal medical training at present except very advanced first aid (close to paramedical training). However I do have access to nearly every book that doctors do, even the ones not avaliable to the public so I am able to use many professional medical references. (I only put all that to A) make you seats that I have advanced first aid training and access to nearly all of the reference books and B) To ensure that catchmypain don't mind me offering advice/my opinion because I've said I don't have an M.D.
Also if Magnesium taurate doesn't agree with you then try the orotate. With the exception of the laxatives all of the magnesium barely touch your stomach as they are quickly absorbed and so shouldn't cause any discomfort however as the laxatives have to stay in the gut for a little while longer that can cause a little upset in some
