The Difference Between Magnesium Magnesium Trisilicate
Different mag salts: You cannot take magnesium alone. It has to be compound with something like oxide, citrate, or sulfate. We call these salts of magnesium. Like the salt of table sodium chloride. But you can take sodium in other forms like sod bicarb (in baking soda). Mag citrate causes diarrhea that's why it is used for constipation. Also, good for preventing kidney stones. Mag ox is used for repleting low mg level. ...Read more
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ingredients: These are primarily intended for slightly different conditions so it depends on what you are trying to accomplish. One is not 'better' than the other. Ask your provider or read about the concern you have. MA can be helpful for digestion issues. Some say SA can help cell function to improve concerns like malignancy. Neither in moderation is likely to be dangerous. ...Read more
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
What is the difference between Vanadium nicotinate gylcinate chelate versus Vanadium amino acid chelate?
Not really any: Many drugs come as different salts, but the active ingredient is the same. The salt rarely causes any differences in the activity of the primary ingredient, but may sometimes alter the potency (the dose you need), or the absorption. Often the differences are only for the purpose of patenting a "different" chemical to be marketed. ...Read more
What is the difference between magnesium oxide and magnesium citrate? Are they for the same purposes?
Nope: Although both could cause loose stools. Mag citrate is more effective for constipation. Mag oxide is used for muscle cramps and repleting low mag blood levels. Both can increase mag levels in urine which helps fending off kidney stone disease. However, mag citrate is much better bec citrates also prevent kidney stone disease. ...Read more
I think so: Interesting question. I spent quite a bit of time researching this and have not found a definitive answer, but as far as i could tell they are different names for the same thing. If any doctors here have other information i hope they will share it. I find magnesium glycinate/bis-glycinate and magnesium taurate to the best-absorbed and best-tolerated form of oral magnesium. ...Read more
