hiya! no worries
i take magnesium glycinate. the brand is kirkman. i take glycinate before a meal, when there's no chance i'll be lying down. that one i want down in my intestines asap, or it will relax my LES and make me cough (odd heartburn symptom).
i do take mag citrate as well, at least one at bed time, and possibly others at mealtimes (not the meal where i take the mag glycinate though). it's okay to take mag citrate after a meal. it's not as crazy on me.
i'm not suggesting everyone would react to mag glycinate the way i did, but this is just how i do it for the best result with no side effects.
new roots has a magnesium bisglycinate product but it's too strong for me. that's the one that made me cough for a year, including dry heaves, no sleep, lost all kinds of weight, took me ages to realize it was a relaxed LES. when you have 'heartburn' but no chest pain it kind of gets a little harder to figure out.
i'll get back to you with the latest regimen
ttfn! (keep in mind it's what works for me, and i eat bread and cheese and put milk in my tea etc, the dosages compensate for that and i know it's not too much due to testing at the lab)
