No mention of Magnesium Malate

by Tommy

Hi, I take the malate form of magnesium as I was told by an M.D. who also happened to be a naturopathic doctor that it was the safest and best form to take for optimum absorption. Curious why it is not mentioned here.




If you could point me towards some hard evidence that it is 'The Safest and the Best'?

If so, I would gladly publish that and recommend magnesium malate.

Magnesium malate is simply a magnesium amino acid chelate that has been 'chelated' with malic acid rather than glycinate or bisglycinate or any number of other possibilities that help it to be more absorbable.

Malic acid and magnesium malate have been studied in conjunction with Symptoms of Fibromyalgia, but other forms of magnesium have been shown to be effective as well. Many practitioners have their own valid opinions about which magnesium is best.

Dr. Carolyn Dean, author of The Magnesium Miracle and probably one of the world's foremost experts on magnesium recommends a formulation called 'Angstrom' Magnesium.

Dr. Mark Sircus, author of Magnesium, The Ultimate Heart Medicine" and Transdermal Magnesium The Book likes Magnesium Chloride, used both orally and in the form of Transdermal Magnesium Gel and Magnesium Bath Flakes.

My husband likes ionic magnesium for himself -and others will choose different magnesium formulations for different reasons.

Some people can't tolerate oral magnesium at all and they think that Transdermal Magnesium Gel is best.

Everyone's body chemistry is different and I tell people to try out a couple of different formulations to see which is best for them.

But I've not seen any studies showing that any one formulation is 'better' than another. And even magnesium oxide is only 'worse' because it has lower absorption. But magnesium oxide 'works' just as well, you just have to take higher dosages of it.

And I've CERTAINLY not seen any studies showing that any one particular magnesium is 'safer'. Magnesium is pretty darn safe and there have been very few 'safety' issues with magnesium, so it's hard to compare a substance for safety that has so extremely rare cases of Magnesium Overdose.

But again, if you do happen to have any studies of this sort from your naturopath, I'd be happy to post them and potentially change my mind about which magnesium is 'best' and 'safest'.
