I would like to know what the difference is between magnesium oxide and magnesium chloride. I have seen some posts that stress "not magnesium oxide. " I've been taking that for several years and wonder if I have done any harm to myself. I took magnesium citrate for awhile because it had been recommended by a neurosurgeon but the "citrate" caused PVC (premature ventricular contractions) that were very frightening. When I stopped taking the mag citrate they stopped. I resumed the mag oxide without any trouble. I found out that "citrate" is processed from corn.
Can someone please explain to me what the difference is? If Magnesium Hydroxide dissolves in the air and becomes Magnesium Oxide, why is there a need for BOTH??
Can Mag Ox be used as a transdermal oil? I read a while back somewhere that Mag Hydroxide as an oil can be used on the skin.
How does this differ from Mag, Chloride??
