A commonly used form that has been extensively studied for numerous health conditions. Magnesium citrate appears to have superior bioavailability and intestinal absorption when compared to magnesium oxide.
This form is found in many supplements and remains a solid option for delivering magnesium into the body, however, since citrate is not actively absorbed (like an amino acid) it can still cause loose stools and digestive upset at higher doses.
