Supplemental magnesium is available in many different forms, each with varying bioavailability in the body. As a test, forms of magnesium that dissolve well in liquid are more completely absorbed in the gut than less soluble forms.
There are organic and inorganic forms of magnesium. Organic forms include the amino acid chelates, citrate, glycinate, threonate and orotate, while inorganic forms include oxide, chloride and carbonate. Organic forms of magnesium are generally better absorbed and don’t tend to produce digestive disturbances, such as diarrhea, when compared to inorganic forms. In studies, organic forms of magnesium consistently show greater bioavailability than inorganic forms.
