Chemistry. to combine (an organic compound) with a metallic ion to form a chelate.

Basically it's bonding one thing (e.g. magnesium) to another thing (glycinate).

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.
Try it, but if you get the runs, blame the Mg Ox.

RE: mention of Applied Nutrition for Mixed Sports book in this article

I get the newsletter but trashed the message with the details for signing up for this book. Is it still possible to get in on the discount deal?

First sentence a minor typo: heirarchy -> hierarchy.

Sorry for my total noobness here. I've seen packaging info like below:

"Magnesium amino acid chelate 500 mg equiv. elemental Magnesium 50 mg" per tablet.

Is this effectively saying that the Magnesium in this tablet is only 10% bio-available? And that to hit a target of 400-500mg daily, you have to take 10 of them?

-----
EDIT: I think I've partly answered my own question. I found another brand which has:

"Magnesium citrate 530mg equiv. to elemental Magnesium 82mg"

1 tablet a day would be bang on the money here I'm guessing?
The other part of my original question, is the "equiv to..." wording telling us the bio-availabilty of the element in question?

No, the equivalent to bit and bioavailiabilty are not referring to the same thing. So, for example, you'd see a similar thing on mag oxide, 500 mg magnesium oxide equivalent to such and such a mg elemental magnesium. the bioavability is still garbage.

so should we ideally be shooting for 400-500 "equiv to elemental Magnesium" or just 500mg of Citrate and dont sweat the little numbers?
