I am going to start taking Magnesium Lysinate Glycinate and am wondering if anyone has any experience comparing it to Magnesium Bisglycinate Chelate. Both of which are manufactured by Albion here in the USA. I have been thinking of trying Magtein in the Future... does anyone have any experience with that either? I am wondering if the added lysine is going to be worth it.   From what I can gather so far it will be a good addition, but with the lower weight of the Magnesium Glycinate Chelate, I am wondering as there seems to be no statistical significance in absorption between the two according to Albion. They sent me an e-mail stating, "In in vitro tests using a Caco-2 cell model, there were numerical differences in absorption rate, but there was not statistical significance between them.  This means that from a statistical standpoint, they had equivalent absorption rates."  So I am wondering if anyone has tried them both and preferred one over the other, or if anyone has tried Magtein with either. I am new to the forum and this is my first post, so I hope everyone is met with good wishes, have a wonderful day!

Does anyone know of any benefits of either magnesium lysinate glycinate compared to magnesium bisglycinate? I read a few threads on here about magnesium supplementation and think I may go with magnesium lsyinate glycinate since I will also be using calcium bisglycinate. Any insight would be helpful as I currently have no experience with these specific mineral chelates of writing this. I am fairly certain it would be a good idea to also supplement with magtein after reading a few threads, any experience with these will be greatly appreciated.

When I read this post by niner in 2013 I already had tried all different types of oral Mg supplements due to very severe painful-muscle cramps (Magtein too) for years. Since I didn't found much improvement with any of the distinct forms, due to niner's post I also started to use cheap Mg-oxide. And indeed, just the elemental total Magnesium amount supplemented a day would result in a somewhat alleviation of the symptom.

 

By which I don't want to discourage you to experiment yourself with all the different form, in the end we are all different with different preconditions and bio-chemical individuality. Some really might work better in your case. And different forms are indeed differently tolerated by each of us. For example the 2.5 g/d of elemental Magnesium I tolerate might cause diarrhea already at only a tiny fraction in any other.

 

Just in my case I could have saved myself a lot of money by using the cheap types right away. In the end only Mg-sulfate infusions I've got since November last year, ceased my muscle-cramps completely

I use magnesium glycinate by KAL in the afternoon and magtein at night by NOW or Life Extension

I have been taking Magnesium Lactate along with Calcium Lactate but have since decided to change up due to any possible side effects of all the Lactate being consumed without a dairy source. I just don't know what the side effects would be consuming so much when not in a whole form from dairy. After watching the interview on YouTube titled -How Chelated Minerals Work in the Body that was released by Albion Minerals YouTube channel I have since decided to switch; most likely to Magnesium Bisglycinate Chelate. I am going to compare them together. The Magnesium Bisglycinate Chelate and the Magnesium Lysinate Glycinate Chelate will be compared and I will see if I notice any difference. I am also going to order some MagTein and will try them separately most likely and together to see which has the better effect. I will report back on any effects that I notice worth noting, within say 2 weeks probably. Tomorrow I will get the Magnesium Lysinate Glycinate  Chelate in the mail but it will be another 4 to 5 days before the Calcium Bisglycinate Chelate shows up to do the comparison of that compared to Magnesium Lactate and Calcium Lactate. As I noted earlier I am also worried about the possible effects of the supplement effects in the stomach which is why I have chosen to go with chelates. The MagTein looks more and more like a good magnesium supplement. I am hoping it increase my intelligence and memory and lessens my chance of getting Alzheimer's.

Magnesium L Threonate does absolutely nothing from me. Chelated Magnesium, Glycinate Lysinate, at least put me to sleep and feels very relaxing.

I use chewable Magnesium citrate + vitamin B6 tablets. I see B6 often added to magnesium supplements, like the ZMA supps that have been popular in the sports nutrition. I guess B6 has some synergy with magnesium?

I really enjoy the Magnesium lysinate glycinate chelate. I will be switching to Magnesium Bisglycinate Chelate due to cost after this batch, and the fact that glycine is smaller than lysine. Even though there is no statistical difference it may be that much more bio-available. I eat a lot of beans already and get a lot of lysine in the diet. I plan to order a small amount to run comparisons. The bioavailability is higher and it is noticeable compared to calcium lactate. Magtein should be here in a few days so I will report what the effects are felt on it combined, it should be here on Friday or Saturday so I can give a report on Calcium Bisglycinate Chelate, Magnesium lysinate glycinate, and Magtein. Seeing as I was magnesium deficient for many years prior to this I assume Magtein is worth a try, I will keep this post informed.

I am really enjoying the new regiment of minerals I had ordered. The calcium bisglycinate chelate is good, the magnesium glycinate lysinate chelate is good, and the magtein really is awesome. The MagTein is more profound then I expected. While I am not sure of the long-term effects of MagTein consumption, I am fairly certain it is healthy as I seem to have gained similar as studies have shown. I will update when I compare the Magnesium bisglycinate chelate to the magnesium glycinate lysinate chelate. SMILE! : - )

I read that post by niner to before you quoted it and figured that makes sense. I was watching a youtube video and they quoted  "Mg oxide supplementation resulted in no differences compared to placebo." , https://www.ncbi.nlm...pubmed/14596323

Maybe it is the placebo effect of the magnesium oxide.

I am hoping to get the most bioavailable magnesium up to date while wasting as little as possible.

ZMA before bed is awesome for sleep as it reduces the breakdown of melatonin. Make sure there is no calcium consumption before, such as milk, or absorption is reduced.

 

Also check the ingredients as not all ZMA has all three components at a good level.

 

Mine has Magnesium L Aspartate (mg) 500, Zinc Picolinate (mg) 30, Vitamin B6 10.

While I enjoy the magnesium glycinate lysinate I think I will switch to magnesium bisglycinate chelate in the future due to cheaper pricing, and that glycine is smaller than lysine. The MagTein is good, but I am not sure if I will keep it long term. I am giving it a two month go right now. I eat beans or lentils everyday so I have a large amount of lysine avilable in the body all ready. I will comment back when I recieve the Magnesium Bisglycinate chelate to compare to the magnesium glycinate lysinate chelate.

Well, it seems it may be smartest to save my money and just go calcium citrate and magnesium citrate. They are vastly cheaper in the long run and I just don't find evidence now that I have looked further in better bioavilabity compared to prices. Some say yes some say no, most say they are equal when taken with a meal.

I always thought magnesium was best absorbed on an empty stomach

I was thinking of calcium when I wrote that. I am glad I read that as it should make it easier for me to plan around when to take specific supplements.
