    What is the opinion here on a new magnesium form that has recently been introduced to the market: Magnesium N-Acetyltaurinate?

    Apparently, this form has a better cell penetration than conventional magnesium taurinate. It seems to be especially good at increasing magnesium in the brain according to two recent studies:

    In the first study (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29679349), the investigators gave five different forms of magnesium (sulfate, acetyltaurinate, oxide, malate, citrate) to rats and measured the accumulation of magnesium in different tissues. Interestingly, magnesium acetyltaurate was by far the best form for increasing magnesium in the brain.

    In the second study (Dose-Dependent Absorption Profile of Different Magnesium Compounds. - PubMed - NCBI), the investigators compared the bioavailability of different doses of magnesium malate, citrate, acetytaurinate, and glycinate. Again, the acetyltaurinate form increased brain magnesium the most and it was effective even at the low dose.

    Pure magnesium n-acetyltaurinate can be bought here:

    And why is more cell penetration necessarily good?

    I did 90 days of this formula: Magnesium Rx 120 vcaps
    Didn't notice anything special, good or bad. Stopped mostly due to the expense, and the fact that nobody was talking about it back when I tried it two years ago, so I did not see enough scientific info to compel me to keep using it. I kept an open eye, but honestly this thread is the first I have even seen anyone mention this form recently.

    Mabye you didn't notice anything because the amount of magnesium acetyl-taurinate in that formula is very small.

    Possibly. I think I took four caps/day, split up. So, I probably got close to 200mg/day of that form. I was under the impression, from what I read, that that form was lipid soluble and a large dose wasn't needed, hence the way it was formulated. Similar to the threonate form, which doesn't require a high dose. For me to revisit that form, I would like to see more compelling research, and then of course better prices, maybe a powder form.

    There is actually a powder form:

    I would also like to see a direct comparison between magnesium taurinate and magnesium acetyl-taurinate. I've not yet seen a study that directly compared these forms.
