Description From the category of registered medicinal products containing magnesium, several products based on inorganic and organic salts are currently available. Mg preparations where Mg is present in the form of inorganic salts (magnesium oxide and magnesium carbonate) have high values of elemental Mg in a single dose (250–365 mg), but low intestinal absorption. Organic salts of Mg (lactate, orotate, citrate) are characterized by a smaller amount of elemental Mg (32.8-100 mg in a single dose), but better intestinal absorption without laxative effects. However, the amount of Mg absorbed from the digestive system depends on several parameters, such as the qualitative composition of the diet and the total amount of Mg reserves in the body.
