What is the difference between pantoprazole magnesium (tecta) and omeraprazole? Should I have omeraprazole if it works, and tecta doesn't?

Acid Reflux: Basically they are the same medication in the same family of medicines.

But what struck me most about this question is your age. I can think of no good reason someone your age would be on this type of medication and at that for a long time. You must get to a gastroenterologist to find out the underlying cause of your symptoms. ...Read more

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

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

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

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

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

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
