I was listening to Chris Kressers recent podcast on magnesium and constipation and he commented that citrate and malate cause the stools to hold more water hence loser stools. I have experienced this frequently with Natural Calm (citrate). Chris recommended magnesium glycinate and it promotes better absorption. Has anyone used this form magnesium and if so do you have any brand recommendations?
I use Dr.s Best. Works great:
I also take it with this (potassium gluconate):
And with this (Taurine for my heart rythm issue):
as well as this for my heart (Co-Q10):
I also listened to this podcast with interest as I have had problems with magnesium citrate. I found this at amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BD0RT0/ref=lst_llp_sl-0
Has anyone here used this. It says it is chelated magnesium glycinate.
I've heard good things about this, never tried it though.
Just started taking the mag glycinate over the weekend. My osteopath recommended it for post workout soreness and better sleep. It seems to be working well in the short time I've used it - I'm less sore than usual the day after an intense workout. Maybe a coincidence, so I'll have to see over the next month.
