Many people within the United Kingdom especially women do not meet the recommended Reference Nutrient Intake for magnesium. It is understood that diet choices, alterations to farming methods and lower availability within processed foods may contribute to this. This is a concern as magnesium is involved in so many functions within the body including energy production, muscle function, insulin regulation, bone health and Vitamin D metabolism.

Magnesium supplements are available in many forms and it can be tempting to think ‘magnesium is magnesium, I might as well buy the cheapest’.

The form of magnesium which appears to be most easy for our bodies to absorb and does not usually cause the digestive issues is magnesium gluconate.

As well as the type of magnesium used the actual method of administration is also understood to effect absorption with liquids being the easiest to absorb, followed by powders and capsules and lastly, tablets.

Therefore when looking for magnesium, liquid of the most bioavailable forms such as malate and gluconate may offer the most benefits.
