Lots of conflicting info out there, but what do people find is the best absorbed magnesium. I do use a multi mineral supp but i think i need more mag to help with muscle pain etc. Another thing that is confusing me is that one supp said 1000mg of magnesium but then states contains 150mg per serve, does this mean only 150mg is the only useful/absorbed portion. When it comes to working out how much u are to take, with the above supp would i be getting 1000mg or 150mg, http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Magnesium-Malate-1000-mg-180-Tablets/692. What doses do others use of magnesium? The multi mineral supp i use now contains 500mg per 2 tabs (from Magnesium Oxide, Magnesium AAC* and Magnesium Citrate), plus all the other minerals. My current supp seems well dosed and priced compared to other mag supps plus my current supp contains all the other minerals as well. cheers!!!
