It should also be pointed out that gelatin is approx. 26% glycine......I have started supplementing with gelatin for a lot of reasons, but I have immediately noticed I am sleeping better! I have been taking 500mg Mag Citrate 3 times a day for constipation issues (Ron, you may remember me from earlier in this post) and it has kept me fairly regular with every other day bowel movements, and now the added gelatin has me having daily BM's, better sleep, and I think my osteoarthritis, which has already improved dramatically since going primal, is improving even more!
There are many powers out there greater than me, and one of them has restored me to sanity.....I am not sure which one, but I am grateful! Living life one day at a time!

I have been taking magnesium citrate at night and have had diarrhea every morning, so today I am going to go and get some glycinate and take that at night. I will continue to take the citrate during the day though and see if it helps keep things regular.
Perhaps I will pick up some malate to take in the morning for energy.

Can anyone advise and recommend a magnesium supplement for prostatitis? I suffer very badly from chronic pelvic floor tension and muscle spasms. Feels like I am permanently sitting on a tennis ball. It radiates around my perineum, buttons, tip of the penis, and bladder.
I know there is no dysfunction with my prostate and no infection present. I am convinced it is a muscu
I have been reading about the muscular benefits of magnesium but am unsure of which one to try
I have a supplement that contains magnesium bisglycinate, is this as good as glycinate?
I hands down prefer Mag-Tab SR as my magnesium. I like the fact that if I space the 4 out throughout the day I've basically got a 24/7 trickle of magnesium entering my system. Get it direct from -> Welcome to Niche Pharmaceuticals, Inc. or it's on amazon and other crap but the manufacturer has the best prices, especially if you buy the huge tub.
