Preaching to the choir ha ha.
I used to post about
the forms of magnesium like crazy here, (3-4 yrs ago), and have used glycinate for about
8 years - for digestion and CNS. Liked it better than citrate or malate.
"Glycine is a well-known calming amino acid. This combination has good bioavailability and does not have a laxative effect since glycine is actively transported through the intestinal wall."
- I partially dis-agree with "does not have a laxative effect". With any mag with "ate" at the end, your max is still determined by "can time" , however you can just use way more than oxide. This is noted other places. Not all of us need as much, 1200mg of mag "ate" is more than average used. Those who can tolerate high doses are more deficient.
Also - Veggies increase "can time". Meat slows down/ spaces apart can time.
High mag doses also make me sleepy.
Yes oxide is a waste of time, its a laxative- many dont know that yet and would not suspect from marketing tactics.
