What's the difference from magnesium elemental from magnesium Glycinate/lysinate chelated, sodium bicarbonate, and magnesium oxide?

What's the difference from magnesium elemental from magnesium Glycinate/lysinate chelated, sodium bicarbonate, and magnesium oxide?

Diff. absorption and: Magnesium always occurs as a salt in combination with other things such as chloride, oxide, glycine, citrate, taurine etc. Some forms are poorly absorbed; for example magnesium oxide is only 4% absorbed, so it does not raise magnesium much but is a good laxative. The best-absorbed are glycinate and taurate and those amino have benefits. See https://www.organicnewsroom.com/magnesium-supplements/ ...Read more

Is it ok to take calcium, vitamin D3 and magnesium together? Or do calcium and magnesium compete for absorption?

Is it ok to take calcium, vitamin D3 and magnesium together? Or do calcium and magnesium compete for absorption?

OK, to a degree but:: Calcium ; magnesium are often packaged together both in supplements ; foods. They compete a bit; calcium may reduce mag. Absorption but mag. Does not seem to reduce cal. Absorption. Those low in mag. Have difficulty absorbing cal.; if deficient in mag. It may be best to take it separately. http://www.nutraceuticalsworld.com/contents/view_breaking-news/2011-09-14/magnesium-is-key-to-calcium-uptake/. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Prilosec, glucosamine, msm, chondroiton, chlorophyll, calcium citrate, multi vitamin, and vitamin d together and daily?

Is it safe to take Prilosec, glucosamine, msm, chondroiton, chlorophyll, calcium citrate, multi vitamin, and vitamin d together and daily?

Multiple meds: That is a big load of meds. Some, such as Vitamin D, do not need a prescription or blood test. Over-the counter vitamin D is inexpensive and does not need a prescription. Even better it is already in your milk and you don't really need to buy Vitamin D separately. Do you really need all the others? Look up "NuVal" on the web and see what foods are best for you rather than meds. ...Read more

How much magnesium glycinate should I take against 600mg of elemental calcium (carbonate) and 400iu vitamin D3 for osteoporosis?

How much magnesium glycinate should I take against 600mg of elemental calcium (carbonate) and 400iu vitamin D3 for osteoporosis?

About 400- 600 mg: There is no consensus. Some experts advise a 2:1 ratio of cal. To mag others advise a 1:2 ratio. I feel a 1:1 ratio is reasonable. Calcium carbonate is relatively poorly absorbed; citrate is much better. Mag glycinate is well-absorbed. Most adults need 5000 iu of d in fall ; winter for optimal levels. I advise adding vit k to your regime-see http://bit.Ly/1a48ofs ; http://bit.Ly/18qtb7y. ...Read more

Some: The fish oil and prenatals are fine together. Ask your doctor how much calcium and vitamin d you need based on your diet. It may be worth getting a vitamin d level. If you need to take the additional calcium, it's probably best to take it apart from the prenatals, which also usually contain calcium. ...Read more

I have Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc altogether in one pill. It says to take 1 to 3 caplets daily with a meal. Can I take all three at once, instead?

Med Directions: if it says 1-3 daily, then it means all at once. If it were to say take 1 tablet three times a day then it would mean exactly that.

Little benefit: You are most likely to reach your tallest potential height by following a healthy diet, getting appropriate sleep and remaining physically active.Nothing you eat or drink will add inches to the final specified in your genes.Most over 18 have closed growth centers and will not grow taller, a few will grow a little until 20.

Be careful with zinc: Zinc can be helpful in maintaining your healthy immune function, but too much zinc can actually decrease your immune function. Excess zinc can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. It can also interfere with the absorption of other essential minerals, particularly magnesium and copper. A copper deficiency can inhibit the transport of iron in the body and result in anemia. The upper limit is 40mg/d. ...Read more

Can taking any of the following lengthen bones and increase the height of an adult female: zinc, calcium magnesium, vitamin d, vitamin k, vitamin b?

No: Hi. At 30 years old, you're long done gaining height. Nothing you can do to add height after your long bone growth plates fuse in your teens.
