Can magnesium oil be as easily absorbed as a magnesium pill? Less tummy issues?

Clever marketing?

The sellers of magnesium oil write that their product is magnesium dissolved in water, with a slippery feel, so is called an "oil". Sounds like clever marketing, with some slippery claims. One should ask them for research studies comparing patients who used the magnesium oil (water), with patients who used the regular oral forms of magnesium. If no GOOD research study is available, then beware!

Dr. Ronald Krauser answered:

I take two 200mg magnesium citrate pills daily as I understand most of us are deficient. Is this safe to do longterm? Any benefits if so? (41yr male)

Not really

Male
Have you had a serum magnesium level checked? It is highly unlikely you are deficient unless you are on diuretics. You are likely wasting your money.

Can too much magnesium glycinate chelate be absorbed in the body (with high doses) and cause permanent damage? Or do good kidneys filter it all out?

Likely filtered out

Kidney
High dose magnesium can cause muscle weakness / fatigue / lethargy, but with good hydration, the kidneys will filter and excrete the excess over time. Use all medications / treatments according to Dr's recommendations. Call poison center for specific advice and recommendations if concerned.

Topical magnesium oil is generally well absorbed but can be irritating to skin. The amino acid taurine together with magnesium, potassium combination with B-6 enhances the uptake of magnesium from Gi tract. Good stomach acid is necessary. Sufficient vit D3 is necessary. Stress of all kinds increase magnesium losses.
