dogman33 asked: What about magnsium L-threonate? Which supposedly gets magnesium into the nervous system better. Do differenct forms of magnesium help specific tissues better than others? And magnesium orotate (not so expensive it purchased in bulk and make your own capsules) reads to be absorbed the best. Would you recommend mg orotate if it was not cost prohibitive? All these versions of oral magnesium are sort of confusing.
I agree, it is confusing!
Keep in mind, up until 100 yrs ago, Mg was in our food & water naturally… Govt policies & programs have drummed it out of our environment, and then with the addition of Fluoride in our water systems & Rx meds, it is disappearing rapidly. You might want to direct some energy to the real problem in managing our health. (sorry for the soapbox…)
Yes, there are different forms of Mg that seem to support different tissues:
Mg Malate — overall benefit
Mg Orotate — overall benefit
Mg Glycinate — overall benefit
Mg Threonate — brain tissue
Mg Taurate — cardiac tissue
Mg Lactate — intestinal tissue
These are the ones that my partner, Dr. Liz, and I have noticed.
But not all forms work for all people. It’s an energetic issue. Orotate has a rich tradition of helping folks get re-balanced. And be sure to take Vitamin-B6 with your Mg to get the full benefit of getting Mg into the cell… Good luck!
