I am looking to see if anyone can recommend a Magnesium supplement

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

The best article that I have seen on magnesium is here:

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.
