Are you taking the right kind of magnesium for your health issues?

Updated: Jul 5, 2022

Magnesium is necessary for over 300 chemical reactions in your body yet many Americans are deficient. A lot of adults take a magnesium supplement with this in mind - but with so many different types of magnesium on the market, it can be hard to know which form is best based on each individual's health circumstances.

Here's a quick guide on what type of magnesium to take & what to avoid based on your health symptoms:

➡️ For constipation & muscle relief - Magnesium Citrate ➡️ For cardiovascular issues - Magnesium Taurate ➡️ For metabolism support & energy - Magnesium Malate ➡️ For stress reduction & insomnia - Magnesium Glycinate ➡️ For depression, anxiety, memory, learning, brain injuries, and neurodegenerative disorders - Magnesium L-Threonate ➡️ Detox & kidney support - Magnesium Chloride or Magnesium Carbonate

Forms of magnesium to avoid because they are not well absorbed & usually just move right through the digestive tract:

➡️ Magnesium oxide (one of the most common forms found in pharmacy shelves) ➡️ Magnesium Glutamate (also neurotoxic) ➡️ Magnesium Aspartate (also neurotoxic) ➡️ Magnesium Sulfate - great for Epsom salt baths but not recommended for long term internal use & it's easy to overdose.
