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!
The life I have today is far better than I deserve.......

CW - 178(some alternate-day fasting, or 'down days' of 500-600 cals, is working for me right now)
GW - 172? (Not really sure yet)
Current addiction: ice cream (and sugar in general).....doing battle with it!
Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )
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.
This one contradicts:
Inhibition of mouse-killing behaviour in magnesiu... [Magnes Res. 1995] - PubMed - NCBI
Inhibition of mouse-killing behaviour in magnesium-deficient rats: effect of pharmacological doses of magnesium pidolate, magnesium aspartate, magnesium lactate, magnesium gluconate and magnesium chloride.
Bac P1, Pages N, Herrenknecht C, Teste JF.
Magnesium deprivation induced interspecific aggressive behaviour (muricidal behaviour) in rats undoubtedly attributable to magnesium deficiency since magnesium chloride, by correcting magnesium deficiency, suppressed it. Inhibition of magnesium deficiency-induced behaviour by various magnesium salts should enable the classification of the therapeutic effects of these salts. Consequently we compared the effects of various magnesium salts used therapeutically on the inhibition of the acute muricidal behaviour induced by magnesium deficiency. All the magnesium salts used (chloride, pidolate, aspartate, gluconate, lactate) suppressed the muricidal behaviour. There was no significant difference in the duration of the treatment needed to inhibit this comportment for each of the salts studied. In contrast, significant differences appeared, concerning the different phases of muricidal behaviour. Magnesium pidolate significantly increased the attack latency (P < 0.05). By repeating the muricidal assays, we showed that magnesium pidolate treated rats had a muricidal behaviour rate which was lower than that of the other magnesium salt-treated rat groups. Consequently, it can be assumed that all the magnesium salts used had an acute anti-muricidal, perhaps anti-stress, effect and that magnesium pidolate presented, on this experimental model the greatest efficacy.
