What is the difference between magnesium Gluconate and Mag Glysinate? Some have suggested using Milk of Magnesium (without other additives) to brush t

What it's bound to: Mag. Gluconate is magnesium bound to gluconic acid and is relatively well-absorbed. Mag glycinate is bound to the amino acid glycine, which supports liver detox, improves sleep and is calming. If poorly absorbed (like milk of magnesia) magnesium will act as a laxative.
Mag glycinate is among the least likely to cause diarrhea. See

Does magnesium gluconate surpress your appetite?

Does magnesium gluconate surpress your appetite?

It may.: Magnesium products can cause GI upset and diarrhea.
For people with kidney failure they are contra indicated since the blood level can rise to dangerous levels.

What's the difference between magnesium oxide and magnesium gluconate?

More mag in Mg oxide: Mag gluconate has less magnesium on weight to weight basis i.e. On milligram to milligram basis. But the product you buy may tell you how much of magnesium on it. Sometimes they specify "contains however many milligrams of mangesium". Clinically, there is not much of a difference since all magnesium products over the counter are of low dose since if much will cause diarrhea and possible arrhythmia. ...Read more

What is the difference between magnesium oxide and magnesium gluconate?

Absorption: Magnesium gluconate is likely better for you. The studies that show good absorption of magnesium oxide were done on rats. Human studies do not show great absorption of magnesium oxide. This being said, oral magnesium in general is not all that well absorbed, which is why too much tends to cause diarrhea. ...Read more

I would like to try magnesium supplement. What is the difference between magnesium sulfate, oxide, gluconate and aspartate. Are they all the same?

I would like to try magnesium supplement. What is the difference between magnesium sulfate, oxide, gluconate and aspartate. Are they all the same?

No: The sulfate & oxide are magnesium attached to inorganic molecules. They are not harmful, but inadequately absorbed. Oratate, gluconate, & aspartic acid are natural organic amino acids, which effect much greater absorption & magnesium release in the body. These organic forms are more expensive but worth it. A formulation that releases about "500 mg of elemental magnesium" is a good daily dose. ...Read more

Can potassium gluconate, magnesium or invokana cause cloudiness and a popcorn like smell in the urine?

Can potassium gluconate, magnesium or invokana cause cloudiness and a popcorn like smell in the urine?

Likely Invokana: Since the popcorn like smell is a result of urine full of glucose. I have had other patients complain of "sweet tea" and "just baked bread" smell to their urine, though the latter had a yeast infection. Cloudiness would make it more likely to be infection. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

250mg magnesium 500mg slow niacin with nicotinic acid and potassium gluconate. Healthy male 35 yes. Take these, or no?

Wallet drain: If healthy and normal diet, no reason to take supplemental potassium or niacin, both of which can have bad side effects. As most people tend to run low on magnesium, and it has a weak muscle relaxer & cathartic effect, you could take the magnesium, but it isn't essential either. Save you cash for good quality food. ...Read more

Why do we use sodium flouride instead of calcium flouride in our toothpastes, mouthwashes etc? It's much less toxic than sodium flouride.

Why do we use sodium flouride instead of calcium flouride in our toothpastes, mouthwashes etc? It's much less toxic than sodium flouride.

Not bio-available: The short answer is that calcium Fluoride is so extremely insoluble as to be considered unusable by your body. Sodium and stannous fluorides are able to be broken down and then the fluorides can enter into and bond with the enamel. Enamel is made of a ring of ions and the Fluoride substitutes in the center to form a more stable ring. This new "ring" is more resistant to decay. ...Read more
