The magnesium oxide compound is very small, so large amounts of elemental magnesium can be delivered without taking up much space in a tablet or capsule. This form of magnesium is one of the most used in supplements and can be used to stabilize mixtures and as a laxative as it has a stool-loosening effect. While this form is not considered to be the most well tolerated in stand-alone magnesium formulas, it can deliver some magnesium at low doses.
