    It depends on how deficient you are and how well it's absorbed. I took mg glycinate for many years with no improvement. I started taking IM injections and only then did I notice a huge improvement.

    I prefer Pure Encapsulations brand but it's a little more expensive. I also use PureBulk magnesium glycinate in my drinking water. I agree that magnesium glycinate is well absorbed, it's never caused me any bowel disturbance.

    I'm not sure what symptoms you are asking about it making a difference with, but I use it to keep muscle twitching to a minimum and it also seems to mildly decrease anxiety. The effect on both is pretty immediate.

    I am thinking of getting the bulk supplements one and dissolving it in water.
    I've been taking their Aceytl-L-Carnitine for a few months and it really affects me (positively).
    On the other hand I do have white Zinc deficiency spots on my nails ... and this is even after taking zinc everyday. I am sure I have an absorption issue somewhere. However, the bulk supplements dissolved do seem to work for me better.

    Magnesium + B6 should help there.

    I found out I could only tolerate magnesium oxide. Epsom salts and Mg glycinate, citrate and aaspartate only worsened ammonia issues.

    Thanks. How will Magnesium + B6 help with zinc deficiency?

    The enzimes involved in B6 metabolism use Mg and Zn. It improves absorption if you take them together. I wouldn't take Zn without copper though (Zn 10 : Cu 1).
