Hi Dr. Dan, I recently spoke to you on the phone regarding Niacin supplements. I have to thank you very much for your recommendation, since it is working very well for both my husband and I :-) I was just listening to Dr. Mercola and heard about Magnesium threonate. Is this Magnasium one that you would recommend ? Is it one that is better absorbed ? Do we have to take Magnesium citrate, tarot,chelate as well as threonate all at one time to address magnesium deficiency ? Thank you ! Have a great Day ! Hilda Adamian
Glad that niacin is working for you! We can see something about your magnesium levels by a standard blood test. This doesn't work for calcium but it does work for magnesium. Lots of different magnesium forms are available and as long as your blood levels are mid lab range, you should be OK with the citrate and/or glycinate. Magnesium threonate is a newer form without a track record. Check back in a year or so about this. Since Mercola talks a lot about keeping magnesium stearate out of your supplements, my research and experience indicates that this is not a big deal and the tiny amounts of magnesium stearate in your capsules and tablets shouldn’t be a problem.
