Our magnesium

The kind of magnesium supplement matters in order to get the most benefit.

We use magnesium citrate which has 3 times the absorption rate (bioavailablity) compared to other common forms of magnesium supplements. Plus this form has been shown to reduce GI issues as other forms of magnesium may have a laxative effect.
