Great article, as usual. I had a question about the magnesium though. You mentioned magnesium oxide is poorly absorbed, but after checking it looks like I have two bottles of the stuff laying around. Since I already have some I'd hate to throw it out. Would just taking a bit more be alright and give similar results?

Once the stuff runs out I'll make sure to buy citrate, but until then I was wondering if the magnesium oxide would be fine.

I don't recall absorption for mag oxide off the top of my head but it's something like half of mag citrate. So you'd need to at least double it up I think. Someone should probably check me on that.

I thought I googled it could be as low as like 3%. But I'm not trustworthy.

It's the vast majority of what's sold in drugstore or grocery store though.

He most likely means the level of absorption
And probably cost/benefit ratio.

Magnesium bioavailability from magnesium citrate and magnesium oxide indicates that citrate is 4 times more bioavailable than oxide in vivo.

Yes, thank you. Although I didn't realize it was still zinc and magnesium oxide. Does it being chelated improve the absorption at all?
