The best article that I have seen on magnesium is here: http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/magnesium-000313.htm

From the article: "Recommended types include magnesium citrate, magnesium gluconate, and magnesium lactate which are more soluble and, therefore, more easily absorbed than magnesium oxide."

Hope that helps some.
