    Any idea which is better? Particularly for laxative use?

    mg oxide makes your stuff go thru your intestine like the shinkansen trains in japan.
    mg glycinate is a good choice if wanna absorb the mg.

    Citrate form is typically found in pharmacy as a saline laxative, so there is your answer.

    I don't know if it's the glycine or the magnesium, but I get noticeable, almost psychoactive effects from mg glycinate and none from citrate. Neutral stony feeling with relaxed focus.

    Yeah Prosper, I'm inclined to agree with this. Just switched back to Glycinate from the chloride form. Chloride or Citrate really don't effect my mind/lower cognition that profoundly. Granted, they're relaxing to the muscles. I get very stoned, brain fog like, relaxed, and stupid from Glycinate. So I'm going to reserve it for night time use. Interestingly, I can tolerate upwards of 800 mg of the Chloride without ill effect. If I go past 2 capsules of Pure Encapsulations brand Glycinate during the day, it's a wrap. Might as well be on Haldol.

    Interestingly, I get almost the same level of "downer" from the Taurate form. They're pretty damn strong, lol.
