This is Dr. Houser on magnesium:
"This is one which will depend upon the salt used. In other words – magnesium orotate has wonderful bioavailability but the orotic acid molecule is very large limiting the amount of elemental magnesium you get. If using something more common like magnesium oxide, you are talking about 2 oxygen molecules limiting the amount of elemental magensium to a much lighter degree. Magnesium oxide is our standardizing molecule where we would use about 400 mg per day to ensure adequate amounts, whereas magnesium orotate is about double this. Most other magnesium salts fall somewhere between the two.
Keep in mind this general rule of thumb when shopping for magnesium, the lower the amount of elemental magnesium, the higher the level of bioavailability (there are a few exceptions to this BUT that generally holds true)."
I personally take 400mg of magnesium glycinate. SNS MCC has 180mg of Magnesium?

To clarify my experience with magnesium glycinate (chelated magnesium = magnesium molecules molecularly bonded to amino acids), I supplement with 400mg each night on top of my diet and MCC.
If your diet is rich in magnesium, MCC will probably suffice. But, I have no problems my extra magnesium intake and MCC.

I have some ancient strength trans-dermal magnesium. Makes my skin itch and it leaves a chalk like substance when it dries. It does seem to help with relaxation though once you take a shower and wash it off.

It depends on how deficient you might be with magnesium. I opt for magnesium oil for my needs and also use cmc. Topical magnesium will only absorb if your body needs it. I I tend to opt for the magnesium creatine chelateOriginally Posted by jbryand101b

I prefer chelated magnesium to other salts. Bioavailability studies didn't account for concurrent mineral uptake. Bry, 6 caps of SNS MCC a day will actually give you as much bioavailable magnesium as a full-dosed mag supplement.

So when I start using this in Jan, should I stop using my calcium/magnesium supp? I believe u told me to only dose 4 caps MCC tho..Originally Posted by mr.cooper69

That product is beyond awful. You're getting next to zero bioavailable magnesium and too high a dose of calcium for concomitant uptake. I'd just return the product.

I was unaware of the level of importance of magnesium in brain functioning.
There are limited studies on this compound, but it would be neat to see more.
Here are two:

I remember Dr. Houser talking about it in his subforum.
