I get this one

I take 2-3g a day & never had a problem with it having a laxative effect - I think that only happens if you have absorbtion issues or take massive doses.

Magnesium laxative effects are most prevalent from the oxide form. And whilst the oxide form is one of the poorest absorbed forms, it is the best for digestive health. It helps clean the large & small intestine by breaking down the impacted faecal matter from animal protein and other stuff.

So, I'd use mag citrate (or some other chelate form) or perhaps even orotate, and then oxide for digestive health.

Using citrate myself at the moment although only at 1g daily but then I'm eating alot of fresh spinach daily to bump it up a little more. Zinc I'm up to 60mg daily split over the first 2 meals.

I thought you needed ozonated magnesium oxide for cleaning along with other oxides

^^ yeah that helps, but is not necessary.

Neck 1-5g of mag oxide and you'll visit the loo soon enough ;)

You can clear your whole system on a bout 15-20g of mag citrate, it's what they use to prep patients for bowel surgery's. I've heard of people using it pre-power lifting comp to make weight.
