4.0 out of 5 stars 100mg Elemental per Tablet, Low Metal content, Better absorption even without stomach acid
Reviewed in the United States on 20 June 2018
+ Many forms require adequate stomach acid, this one does not.
+ Not Buffered - Some magnesium bisglycinate on the market is “buffered”, which usually means that magnesium oxide has been “mixed in” with the magnesium bisglycinate. This makes the product cheaper but also less absorbed and useful, and unfortunately, companies often won’t mention whether or not they are using a “buffered” form. Doctors Best says its unbuffered.
+ 100mg ELEMENTAL magnesium per tablet. Many brands state the amount of magnesium glycinate/bisglycinate, but not the amount of absorbable elemental magnesium. Magnesium Bisglycinate unbuffered in a pure form has about 14% of 'elemental' magnesium.
+ Bonded to Glycine for better Absorption without GI discomfort, the bond is easily broken so the body can get to and use the magnesium. Some forms no matter how much you take, the body is barely able to break the bond and use it.
+ Rated by labdoor to contain low metals.

- Tablets may be a bit large for some. See photo vs the smallest Bioschwartz Magnesium Bisglycinate. That is one option although the elemental magnesium per capsule is around 1/4 of that of a DB tablet. Or a Magnesium Chloride Oil to be absorbed through the skin.
- Magnesium Stearate and Stearic Acid

Magnesium can’t just be by itself as a molecule, it has to be bound to something else to be stable. The biggest difference in different magnesium products is not from the magnesium itself (which is all the same) but from the molecule its bonded to. If you are taking your magnesium in a form where the bond is hard to break such as Magnesium Oxide, then you might as well be taking nothing at all because most will just pass right through you. In other words, it is like there is crazy glue holding the magnesium to its carrier, and if your body can't break the bond, then you won't absorb much if any. Magnesium Bisglycinate is bonded to Glycine which allows the Magnesium to more effectively pass through the intestine. This allows for maximum absorption of what you take without the digestive discomfort generally associated with Magnesium supplementation. The bond in this form is easily broken so the body can get to the magnesium and therefore makes a good option for a supplement. The other part - Glycine is a relaxant, so it may work well for anxiety.

The amount stated per tablet is 100mg Elemental. Many times the amount stated per capsule is the amount of magnesium bisglycinate chelate it has, and NOT the amount of elemental magnesium it has. Magnesium Bisglycinate unbuffered in a pure form has about 14% of absorbable 'elemental' magnesium. In other words, they would need around 1429mgs, almost 1 1/2 grams of magnesium bisglycinate in two pills to attain 200mg of elemental magnesium as in two tablets here of doctors best.Taking 520 of Magnesium Chloride will have around 62mg elemental so always know the amount of elemental you are getting, and consider the absorption rate of the form, as some forms like oxide may only absorb 4% of the elemental you take in and require stomach acid so may not be very useful.

Magnesium needs Vitamin B6 to enter the cell, and Vitamin B6 needs Magnesium, Zinc, and Vitamin B2 to convert to its active form. So those low on mag for awhile might want to consider adding some P5P (active form of B6 that wont require conversion for the body to use). Boron enhances the body's ability to use calcium, magnesium, as well as vitamin D and helps to prevent calcium and magnesium from being lost in the urine. Around 3mg/day such as pure encapsulations (no filler) or life extension if you dont eat boron foods regularly.
Magnesium will detox cells so you might need to increase slowly if you have been low awhile.

The vast majority of people are deficient in magnesium due to factors such as the presence of heavy metals like mercury or aluminum, Sugar and Phytic Acid in nuts, grains and legumes both increase Mag elimination, caffeine, alcohol, cannabis, Vitamin D taken in excess lowers magnesium as well also vitamin a and potassium, heavy sweating such as endurance sports, night sweats, hot flashes, phosphates in sodas, deli meats, cereals bind to mag. Wifi and EMF also do as well.

For the money, this seems to be one of the better options unless you wish to pay a higher price for no fillers from pure encapsulations which also has a good metal rating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poisonous pills. Do not buy them
Reviewed in the United States on 14 July 2019
Do not buy these pills are poisonous, they manufacture them with very low quality standards and their contents are not guaranteed, I bought 2 pots of these pills and began to take them until a few days later I started to feel some strange pains in the area of ​​the liver that They became more acute every day, I decided to go to the doctor where they did routine tests to verify everything but could not give me any answer of what I had, 1 week later I realized that there was something strange inside the pot of pills, there were some white pebbles and blue pebbles (cobalt chloride and silica) that had stained all the pills, I immediately stopped taking the pills and wrote to amazon but they told me that it was not their responsibility and that I should write to the manufacturer of the Dr's best pills and so I did, I told them what happened and what they suggested to me basically was that I had taken the pills on purpose knowing it was defective, the name of the person who wrote to me is Arnold Samuels and is a customer service person, the truth is that their treatment was rude, he never asked me how I felt, he never tried to solve the situation or offer to reimburse me the money or change the pills even though these pills came defective from the factory and poisoned with the contents of the envelope that serves to absorb silica moisture but also had cobalt chloride that is poisonous to the human being and therefore my pains in the liver area since I started taking these pills. I write this comment because I do not want more people to be harmed or poisoned by taking pills from the Dr's best factory and I wanted to share what happened to me so that it does not happen to anyone else, do not consume anything from this factory because they do not care with the clients and their well-being. until this moment the company Dr's best has not been responsible for anything and they do not answer my emails, I still have problems with my liver and spending on doctors and exams.
