LEFs magnesium capsules (500 mg) include MgO wich is poorly absorved.

I wonder if the 160 mg capsules of the highly bioavailable magnesium citrate are more effective than the 500 mg ones.

What do u think ?

There have been a number of positive magnesium studies that utilized the oxide form. However, comparative studies show that other forms are better absorbed.

So, yes, the magnesium citrate capsules are more effective, but one has to take more of them.
