What is the best form of magnesium for osteoporosis? Also need a form that isn’t large pills due to separate swallowing issues.
I take Magnesium Glycinate - and yes, I guess the capsules are sort of big, but you could probably take them apart and put them in a glass of water. I don't know. I've never tried it.
Sorry hit wrong button
Best form (best bio-availability) is magnesium bisglycinate. This brand is local (to me) and it's amazing: https://www.purelabvitamins.com/WhereToBuyPureLabVitamins.php Helps with giestion as well. My mother has very little fibro pain... Etc. Et c.
I use a topical form. “Ancient Minerals.”
I get it in powder form. Natural Calm by Natural Vitality.
A chelated form is said to be best for Osteo. Country Life makes a chelated form using Magnesium Oxide and Amino Acid Chelate.
Is that a powder or pill?

My magnesium tablets are easy to break in half. Otherwise they’d be too big for me to swallow!
I read that an oil spray is best as goes into the bloodstream.
Magnesium oil is awesome!
Has anyone tried to make their own - seems simple - magnesium chloride flakes and distilled water and a drop of essential lavender oil.
TY!!Already taking a great complex k plus I eat Natto. Just wanting to add a magnesium supplement to refining!
But what have they made the k1 k2 4 k2 7 from thats what is important
Natto. K7 is always from Natto. What are your vitamin K sources?
Natto is full of Aluminium to which i am severely allergic plus aluminium is in no way good for bones ..... İ understand theres plenty of K2 in uncooked green leafy veggies an i eat salad virtually every single day
I like Calm Magnesium brand... Really works well
Purchased this today. TY
I agree. Some of these pills are too big!
I take Mag Glycinate in Powder form.
How do you use the powder?
Sue Cook I just dissolve in a drink. Not keen on the taste in plain water so I use a drop of apple juice to flavour it. Have it at night.
You can buy a pill/tablet cutter from the chemist. Just cut in half.
the pill/tablet cutter works like a charm !!!!!!
I tried a pill cutter.... İt was rubbish. Might work if the pill was already scored but certainly didn't work with normal tablets.
My pill cutter is over 10 years old and still cuts any size pill. It has a razor-blade-like mechanism that does the cutting. Bought it at a drug store long ago.
To be fair lorraine, mine was only a cheap one from EBay.
I focus on getting magnesium from veggies. Pumpkin seeds are a great source!
Impossible to eats nuts right now. Need surgery. Nuts get stuck in esophagus and take hours to go down. ( terribly unpleasant). I wonder if I could put them in smoothies for the same absorption. Worth a try!
I think hemp seed powder is high in magnesium (double check that). I put it in smoothies
pam I got sick of swallowing all those pills so now but everything as a capsule and open them all up and pour the contents into my morning smoothie. Sorry if I’m teaching you to suck eggs.
