How to choose the most suitable magnesium source?

There are different sources of Magnesium in various forms so how to choose the proper one?

Properties to be considered:

 Bioavailability

 Magnesium content

 Solubility

 Organoleptical characteristics

 Interaction with other ingredients

Commonly used Magnesium sources:

Organic Magnesium

Magnesium Citrate

Magnesium Lactate

Magnesium Gluconate

Inorganic Magnesium

Magnesium Carbonate

Magnesium Oxide/Hydroxide

Magnesium Phosphate

So, which is preferable? Organic Magnesium or Inorganic Magnesium?

  !"

It is generally agreed that the bioavailability of Organic salts is much higher than the bioavailability of Inorganic salts.

From the literature it appears that the bioavailability of Organic Magnesium is higher that of Inorganic Magnesium.

Magnesium absorption measured as the increase in urinary Magnesium following intake of Magnesium oxide

or magnesium citrate demonstrated a significantly higher absorption from citrate in normal volunteers.

Ref: "Magnesium biavailability from magnesium citrate and magnesium oxide"

Lindberg, J.S., Zobitz, M.M., Poindexter, J.R., Pak, C.Y.C.

Journal of the American College of Nutrition, 1990; 9; 48-55

The same study also state:

In vitro solubility showed that Magnesium oxide was only 43% soluble in simulated peak gastric acid secretion,

while magnesium citrate was and 86% soluble under these conditions.

On the other hand, the various organic Magnesium shows more or less the same bioavailability with slight advantage to

Magnesium Citrate

Organic Magnesium Magnesium Solubility

Magnesium Citrate 12% 0.5%

Magnesium Citrate Anh. 16% 20%

Magnesium Lactate 9.4% 4%

Magnesium Gluconate 6% 16%

Magnesium Aspartate 8% 4%

Inorganic Magnesium

Magnesium Carbonate 25.5% 0.04%

Magnesium Oxide 60% 0.0006%

Magnesium Phosphate 27% 0.2%
