Question About Magnesium Malate

Posted by Bill (San Fernando, Philippines) on 11/13/2009

Hi Ted...I live in the Philippines, and have read much good information here on the necessity to get a safe absorbable form of Magnesium. But it is quite difficult to buy the Magnesium citrate form that you advise within the Philippines.

I was wondering if I could just simply create a saturated solution of Magnesium malate from combining Milk of Magnesia (pure MgOH) with ACV.

Would this work and be safe and suitable to ingest in dilution as a source of Magnesium?

Dear Bill:

if magnesium citrate (alkaline form), and magnesium chloride can't be found. Then magnesium malate may do. However, I havent yet gotten a chance to test magnesium malate.

Milk of magnesia is poorly absorbed, I wouldn't use this as a magnesium supplement.
