LOL, sorta halfway in between. I'm from Ontario originally though (most of us here are...).
jimmylegs wrote:you might be able to find an AOR supplier near you... their magnesium product is mag malate (as opposed to mag glycinate). found this comparison:
This form of magnesium is less disruptive on the bowels than magnesium chloride, citrate and sulfate, which can cause diarrhea. Aside from these considerations, magnesium glycinate is five times easier for the body to absorb than magnesium oxide.
Individuals suffering from malabsorption conditions like celiac and Crohn's disease will benefit from this form of magnesium. Older people, who are usually prone to magnesium deficiency, also benefit.
The malate form of magnesium is derived from malic acid, which plays a key role in energy production. Not surprisingly, magnesium malate will benefit individuals such as athletes, who would like to maximize their energy production, as well as those with musculoskeletal problems like fibromyalgia. People suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome or other circulatory and respiratory problems may benefit as well.
my mag glycinate product is by kirkman labs. don't know if they sell in BC though.
Wow, thanks! I will definitely have to look for Malate. I'm always on the hunt for anything that will help give me energy. We do have a pretty good healthfood store here that will order pretty much anything if you ask for it.
