There’s a bunch of different types of magnesium out there and there’s an infographic that’s been floating around the internet and i figured let’s do a video on this and get a little bit more detail so i’m going to explain the different kinds of magnesium and which magnesium is for your specific need the first one is magnesium chloride okay magnesium chloride is

Super good for metabolic function and for detoxing it’s about a 12% bioavailability but it’s extremely potent so it works very very well for just a nice general flow of magnesium okay the next one is magnesium citrate now generally speaking magnesium citrate is not recommended and the simple reason is it interferes of something called cirillo plasmon that sorella

Plasma is sort of what regulates the balance between iron and copper sorella plasma carries copper throughout the body so without that sorella plasma maybe so we have an overabundance of iron which can lead to a lot of issues and additionally mag citrate is a pretty powerful laxative next up is magnesium glycinate okay magnesium glycinate is bound with the amino

Acid glycine okay which is a very calming amino acid to begin with so this one is really good for calming effects taking before you go to bed taking and you need to relax it is a chelated form of magnesium which means it absorbs a lot faster as well it’s also absorbed through the intestine which means that it’s not going to cause a laxative effect it’s absorbed

Through your intestinal tract before it ever gets a chance to cause that issue of smooth muscle relaxation in the intestinal tract then we’ve got magnesium a linked magnesium mele is energizing okay it’s the kind that you’d want to take if you’re working out a lot see it aids in atp production which is adenosine triphosphate which is what we need to produce

Energy to contract our muscles to lift weights to run and all of that it’s also a chelated form which means it has a higher level of bioavailability then we have mag oxide okay mag excite is good taken throughout the day in small doses it’s usually bound to a fatty acid so it’s oxidized that way and it’s really good for just taking throughout the day and getting a

Nice sustain release but it has pretty low bioavailability which is why you generally would have to take it throughout the course of the day because you’d have a small bump and then it would cascade on down and you wouldn’t have any in your system then we’ve got magnesium sulfate is also known as epsom salt epsom salt is not a salt it’s a magnesium and believe

It or not magnesium sulfate is not that effective there’s no real solid studies that magnesium sulfate or epsom baths do yourself any good when it comes to recovery or it comes to healing there’s been a lot of studies that have looked at it but nothing conclusive it’s also a very powerful laxative so unless you are near a toilet be very very careful in using it

Then we’ve got magnesium or o take magnesium orotate is one of my favorites i really like it simply because it penetrates all the way through the cell so mag orotate is really good for overall cellular health for energy but also for cardiovascular health because it can actually penetrate into those cells into the cytoplasm and do what it needs to do lastly we’ve

Got magnesium three and eight okay magnesium three and a with mental things so we’re talking about anxiety we’re talking about depression and other neural conditions there’s been a lot of studies that have actually proven that this kind of magnesium positively affects your short-term memory and your long-term memory quite dramatically so if you’re someone that’s

Dealing with some anxiety maybe a little bit depression maybe you’re just dealing with some funky stuff in your life that might be a good one to take so there you have it that’s the all encompassing look at the different kinds of magnesium that you’ll see out there and as always make sure you keep it locked in here to learn all about minerals and learn what exactly

Works for you at what giving point in your life i’ll see you in the next video
